So DH brought me a box of diapers and covers from a coworker.  Hooray! There's a lot here, but I'm sure I've got some gaps. 

 

What I've got:

 

2 FuzziBuns OS

 

5 FuzziBuns SM

 

2 Happy Heinys Small

 

2  Bummis Whisper Wrap NB

 

2  Bummis Whisper Wrap S

 

3  Haute Pockets

 

3  Thirsties XS

 

2 Homemade (etsy) AIO w/aplix, look pretty small

 

10 unbleached prefolds

15 microfiber inserts

 

Baby is expected to be pretty big, based on DD's size and DH being 9'9 at birth.

 

Thanks ladies!

Looks pretty good to me! You may want some 'stuffing' materials for pockets or wraps. And, are you planning on using cloth wipes?

I haven't decided on the wipes yet.  Probably, since I have a ton of old material I could use.  What is generally recommended for those?

 

Also - what else should I stock up on for stuffing?

Flannel is great. Sherpa, velour are good. Basically cotton or cotton blend are good. No fleece or things like that. 

 

Stuffing depends. Some people like microfiber and some like natural fibers. You can use prefolds too. If you've got material, you might consider making some inserts out of anything you'd make wipes out of.
