We have nothing for the newborn stash yet. We are getting down to the wire here and crunching numbers to just pay our new midwife at least half of what's due before the baby is born. I will probably just end up getting a good stash of chinese prefolds and then I'd really like to make some fitted type diapers if I can swing getting a sewing machine.

Thus far, I have made about 5 newborn dipes, and I have 2 bummis covers and one bumpy day print cover.

I just ordered the VB pattern so I should be cranking them out soon!

i have a dozen newborn Schnooglywears on the way, about 8 KL 0's , several random pockets and fitteds, and about 1 1/2 dozen CPFs. I've also got tons of random covers that people have given me. I'm hoping not to buy anything else.

I have about 30 DSQ flat diapers and about 25 fuzzibunz smalls.

I need a few new kinds of diapers, Im asking for the for this baby at showers/as gifts if people actually want to give me what I want instead of registry junk.

I need mediums and larges as far as covers, since I only CD'd till she outgrew the smalls last time!

For a couple reasons, we haven't even started. :

My friend wanted to throw a shower for me, and another friend promised to lend me the hand-me-downs from their daughter, who is just turning a year old in Sept. I wanted to wait until then to fill in what I can't get.

We also just moved into a new place and it seems like every time we move, the expenses get exponentially higher and we haven't recovered yet, the finance company is having our house auctioned off at the beginning of August (there's so much emotional baggage going with that house... sigh...) and I'm consulting with a new midwife the first week of August, too.

I do hope I get lots and lots of hand-me-downs. And thankfully, I can sidecar the crib that my b-i-l had in storage for the time my s-i-l was babysitting.

I am still in shock I'm even pregnant, after years of thinking my son would be an only child... so much to do!

Ah well... this too shall pass...

I have 12 brandy new motherease along with 4 covers and 6 liners
a dozen flannel fitted diapers that are really nice but I have no idea what brand...there is no label and someone gave them to me...I think they might be home made...I also have a ton of flannel to make some prefolds as well...but I might be ok with the dozen I have sothen I will use the flannel for larger diapers...we will see.

So far we have:

6 Fuzzibunz
6 Microterry inserts
12 Newborn CPF
6 Premium CPF
6 Regular CPF
10 Kissaluv 0's
3 S Under the Nile organic fitteds
bunch of Snappis
3 NB Bummis SWW covers
1 S Bummis SWW cover
1 S Bumpkins cover
1 S Prorap cover
1 S Rolie Polie Baby wool cover

I might get another dozen or so of UBCPF's and I need to buy cloth wipes and then I think we're set for a while. We're also planning to EC, anyone else also thinking about this?

I LOOOOVE looking at hyena dipes but I don't think that I'll end up a true hyena myself. Slings, on the other hand...oh, my goodness, there are so many gorgeous ones out there!!

I love checking out the hyena diapers also. Some are so cute. I even got this babe a pair of longies from Irish Baby knits not exactly hyena but I had to wait 7 months to make the custom list.I plan on saving them and giving them to her for her babies. I love babybloomrs and wish i could find one of those cheap. I refuse to pay 25- 30 dollars for fitted or AIO diapers. If I can get them second hand for a decent price I will but I use cloth to save money not to break the bank.lol

Just wraps and all the washcloths from DS that I'm actually still using to clean his toddlin' bum. We use a service since I work outside the home. I have a decent stash for toddlers, but nothing for newborns.
post #11 of 52
No newborn stash here. I sold it after Fiona outgrew them because dh said she was our last. I do have mostly girly dipes loaned out to a friend right now, so we'll see if I need them back. Lots of lukes drawers, ME airflows, one sugarpeas wool cover, aristocrat and bumpy wool. My hyena diapers haven't really held up well though. SOS, sugarpeas prints etc.

This time I think I will use ME Sandies again and airflow covers. They now come in size small. I might also get a few kissaluvs size 0's. The size 1's I had were never terrribly absorbant, but I will be changing a newborn much more often. I've never tried prefolds, but I just love the simplicity of fitteds and how they keep those explosive BM poops in. Anyone have any great recomendations for something I should try for this one? Nighttime diapering?

Patti I use happy Hempys for my toddler at night I use a wool cover or wool pants over them. I have never had a leak. I am not buying any specific night time diapers for the baby just yet becasue I figure I will be up at night changing her.
post #13 of 52
For the first couple of months anyway, I do changes throughout the night. I mean, I'm generally awake most of the night in increments anyway.

I'm so excited about making my stash. It's the first time for me.

post #16 of 52
Ooh, I always wanted to post on one of these threads and now I finally have a stash to post (which is good, because I'm due in a week!).

I've never used any of these before except the infant prefolds, so I can't wait to try out all the different covers (my plan is to order my favorites in the larger sizes). I'd love to find a Kiwi Pie (I'll never be a good hyena) and I'm debating whether to get a Fuzbomb, but they're so pricey I may wait and get it in a larger size like I did with the Mai Mais (OK, except I didn't wait and medium was all she had in stock).

So far I have:

24 Preemie prefolds
24 Infant prefolds
12 Kissaluvs 0
6 Snugglebottoms without velcro

NB Covers
1 Nikky wool
1 Nikky poly
1 Litewrap
1 Tiny Hinnie
1 Bumpy wool cover
2 Bumpy day covers

SM Covers
1 Merino Sugarpea
2 Jersey Sugarpeas
1 Polar Baby
1 Bummi SWW
1 Stacinator stretch
1 Doodlebottoms

MD Covers
1 Mai Mai BB merino
1 Mai Mai BB wool

30 Cloth wipes
6 cotton doublers
2 small and 1 large duffy sacks

nb stash...dh and I were talking about this last night. Last time we used some covers + prefolds and then we had kissaluvs size 0. I sold both the kissaluvs and covers in a "need $$ for next size up" kinda moment.

I'm making about 10 fitteds for this baby. I've sewn about 10 honeyboy style pocket diapers.

We also have about 20 fitteds size small I made for dd, 15 fuzzibunz size smallish and a handful of mediums.

to anyone who's said they have like 12 cpfs: My advice would be get the infant sized ones and get like 24 ish. The tiny ones are handy when they are itty (also sold in above mentioned sale), but we used infant ones to stuff pocket dipes and as doublers until about 2 months ago. We finally had to move up to bigger diapers because dd would pee all at once and soak right through the diaper at daycare.

The infant sized prefolds and also the "normal" sized (white? I think) prefolds are handy as burp cloths, for stuffing your bra against nursing leaks in the night, etc.

so far i have like 50 prefolds, 12 fitted NB, 12 doublers,3 AIO NB and 3 fitted covers NB.. i still need a lot more,huh? im still so confused with what i need to buy that im afraid to buy anything!!
post #19 of 52
My main stash consists of 24 unbleached infant prefolds and 4 small mother-ease air flow covers.

I also have 6 Kissaluv 0's, 3 small Fuzzi Bunz, several newborn and small Bummis covers, a dozen or so flats, and a sampler of other diapers and covers.

Should be plenty! I have my prefolds and covers stacked on a shelf in the dining room so I can admire them all evening long. So cute and soft and fluffy

personally I wouldn't buy anything else except:
small diapers of some kind
perhaps a few more nb sized or small sized covers
snappis if you think you're going to be a snappi kind of family

Wait until you've done it to know what works for your family (and this particular kiddo)!!
