I'm holding off on buying more of anything until I see that I can manage with cloth and that babe doesn't have a reaction or anything...
DH and I decided on -- 22 newborn prefolds (I had 10 leftover from DS and ordered another dozen) and 12 x-small covers.
With DS I felt that I was constantly running out of covers because the runny BF poop would get on them. So we thought 12 would do it. I anticipate doing laundry every other day or so. And we are not opposed to using some disposables, so it might seem like a small newborn stash. I just didn't want to spend a ton of money when they are only going to be used for a couple of months.
As for smalls, I borrowed my friend's fuzzi bunz stash and I actually have no idea how many I have. I have a few other smalls of my own, so I'm pretty sure I have enough, but will have to reevaluate as the baby gets bigger.
The only time I went through a high volume was the first week (or two?) when DD was a pooping machine. I remember one day she pooed 12 times!! But shortly there after the amount of diapers I needed went down.

3 covers (when we had DD she mainly hung out coverless at home so I didn't buy many)
12 disposable Flip inserts (for going out?)
We typically use disposables when out for the first few months, so hopefully by then we'll be into my medium stash, which is much bigger. I didn't want to build a big newborn/small stash since my DD only wore them for ~2-3 months.
Mama to one awesome little girl and her adorable baby brother.
So far we have 24 cotton flats (going to get 12 more).
I have ordered 3 Bummis SWW covers, 2NB and 1small, and we are planning to buy some Thirsties covers ?4. We're also going to try some Flips, maybe for nights etc so probably 4 of those too. Once we decide which covers we like we will order the bigger sizes.
We're hoping to use disposables for travel only so haven't bought any of those as she will be bigger by the time we go away for the first time. However there was one as a sample in a baby expo showbag we were given so I will throw that in the nappy bag for emergencies.

How many more flip inserts and/or other types of diapers do i probably need? I'm not going the prefold route as of now..

3 dozen prefolds and 5 knit covers
I also have 18 one size Fuzzi Bunz left over as back up. But I'm not crazy about all the stuffing and adjusting nor the way a one size fits a newb, so they are literally "back up" ...we should be just about right with our prefolds and covers.
