...if your DH got a good baby bonus from his boss??

A lot of the money will go to cover other expenses with the new baby 'cause we are by no means well off.

But an ok part of it - have not decided how much - will definetely go to CDs

So, what kind of stash - from birth to potty - would you get ??? How many per phase??

I would get a whole stash of FCBs (AIOs, NLs, Fitteds and Wool) but that is nearly impossible to do. So, I would consider a rainbow of Very Baby AIOs. Good luck deciding! Sounds like fun.

I love my stash right now, so I would duplicate it :LOL

I love righteous baby flag's and fcb fitteds. I would get 9 of each of those (minumum, if we are dreaming then a dozen of each).

Then I would get 12 vb aios.

And a dozen - 18 prefolds.

Depending on the season my wool stash would vary. In the winter I would have 4-6 pairs of wool pants/longies. In the warmer seasons 4-6 soakers/soaker shorts. All year round I would have a few wool covers on hand.

Hmmm I would get 24 infant prefolds and half a dozen wool covers.

Then I would get 24 AIO's.

HEHE! That is a lot isn't it?

Hmmm, I think I'd get...

NB
24 prefitteds (18 dyed in a pretty rainbow and six unbleached/undyed)
12 bbh nb fitteds (in gender specific prints if i knew the gender)
6 nb proraps
2 wool soakers
6 xs very baby aios

SM
18 prefitteds in a pretty rainbow
6 elbees
4 wooly bullies
4 soakers or longies depending on season
4 alexis featherlites
6 sm vb aios

MED
18 prefitteds again in a rainbow of colors
6 elbees
4 wbs
4 soakers/longies
4 featherlites
6 med vb aios

My first potty trained in mediums and my second is still in smalls and mediums at 21-mos so I wouldn't buy any larges until I needed them.

lots of CPFs and 6-12 covers in each size (depening on how often I could wash) and I'd get good covers, not the cheap ones like alexis wraps and dapis becaus ethe better kind last longer (at least for us).

Oooohhh....you're going to have so much fun shopping!!

For the NB stage I'd stick w/ infant prefolds and pul covers, I think. You don't really need a night-time system then...since they never sleep long. LOL

I eezi-gear eezi-folds and the everybaby size fits from 10-35+lbs. I'd get at least a doz. of them. Then I'd get at least a doz. dyed prefolds, since they are soooo pretty and super functional. Then I'd get at least another 12 various dipes...RB, mammamade, FCB. I'd also get at least a half-dozen AIO's...either honeyboy, bum-ware or VB Basic!!

I'd go the prefitted route for most of the stash, and supplement with some fitted dipes for nighttime (Muttaqins, or Nightlights, or whatever) and some AIOs (whatever worked best for my child). Then I'd get a bunch of wool covers from Bijou Baby Gear or Loveybums (reasonably priced to maximize the stash) and some Bummis. And a couple of Aristocrats for nights, and a pair or two of wool pants from Reuseabums.
I'm all about getting the most for my money

Thank you all for your ideas!!

Your suggestions becca011906 sound a lot like what I was thinking myself...

So, your experience is that it is a waste to get SM fitted diapers isn't it?

I agree that UBCPFs would be the wises option for the very beginning - I am an expert pinner anyways :LOL

So, I f I were to buy fitted such as Sugar Peas, I should get size M and not waste my money with size SM? I was wondering because all my babies were born at 8lb + ...

Personally, I'd buy SOS diapers! I love them and since they are one size, they'll fit for a long time. They're expensive at the outset but when you think about the fact they'll pretty much fit from birth to potty, it's worth it! My 27 month old, 30 pound daughter fits in them on the highest rise but almost the smallest waist setting. They'll fit for quite a while longer with her build.

Of course, I'd get other things as well but I'd absolutely buy SOS!

I hear the SP's run big. I've seen alot of mama's here putting there toddler's in the size small. It seems like the smalls would be a great fit for a long time!

The SS SPs run really big! Josh is moderately chunkalicious and he fit into a small until he was about 23 lbs. I'd definately get smalls.

I would get a stash close to what we actually have...
2-3 dozen infant prefolds (about 2/3 of them dyed)
3 dozen premium prefolds (2/3-3/4 of them dyed)
6-12 (small, then medium) AIOs like VB or Daisy Doodle (much easier for me to change on the go than prefolds and wool - and I can fit more in the diaper bag!)
3-4 (small, then medium) ME AF
And however many wool covers (well, yarn) to make me happy... Right now I've got 5 soakers in rotation, and 2 pairs of longies and another 2 soakers on the way. I may go nuts with soaker shorts in the spring/summer, we'll see.

I also don't anticipate ds going beyond mediums - he's almost 16mo, 18ish pounds, 30ish inches, and has been slim regardless of walking. Both dh and I were that way when we were little.
