With 3 weeks to go, we decided it was high-time to take the wonderful fluffiness out of the boxes...and do an inventory.  We know there are holes to fill...just needed to know where!

 

We are expecting Eddie to arrive on the small size...so DH and I want to stock-up on a few more Preemie-size dipes and covers.  Small (not preemie) dipes we have...covers, oh, not-so-much!

 

Turns out I have TWENTY Kissas Sz 0!  

 

Here's a pic of my stash.  In the bucket in the back are my Kissas, 5 Goodmamas and some WAHMs.

Now to clean, sort and put-away!  Oh...and shop for some more, of course!

I love when it's all set up nice and neat.  I just organized mine and holy moly it was a mess!  I have so many FBs and an infinite amount of prefolds.  DH was like scared.gif.  As you can tell, he never did much of CD laundry last time. LOL.

Believe it or not, once your milk comes in, you'll go through that stash in less than 2 days.  I've got about 2.5 dozen fitteds and AIO's and another dozen newborn prefolds and we're going through all 2.5 dozen of the fitteds and AIO's in 2 days, using prefolds while we wash evey other day.  My little one is a week old.

Love the stash- I just realized I don't have enough newborn prefolds(only 2 dozen) so I ordered 2 dozen more from Green Mountain dipes today and I hope I can boil/prep them before baby comes!  I used Kissa's size 0 fitted with my last baby for first few weeks (as well as prefolds). I see you have some Swaddlebee's there too- I bought some mini eco-nappis for newborn period.

 

Looking back at pics of my last baby the newborn covers really are too big to start off with. I have a ton of them (Niji's and Nikki's and Imse Vimse's).........

I have just less than two dozen, and the OS BumGenius seem like they're going to be too big, as do the small Swaddlebee's...Oh well, I guess good thing that we got disposables as gifts....Otherwise we'd end up trying EC right off the bat. ROTFLMAO.gifI kind of anticipated doing laundry at least every 1.5 days though, so that's not a big deal, but I would prefer to stay out of disposables as much as possible this time.

Do you have the swaddlebee's newborn size? They look a bit roomy to me too, more for like an 11-12 pounder . I got some newborn Rumparooz (don't like that it's fleece though) as well as newborn Grovia's and some newborn Tot's Bot's which look really great to me (can't say whether they are or not) as well as some fitted hemp velour newborns. Hoping I have enough too since I'll only have 3 dozen newborn prefolds and then about a dozen AIO's/fitteds.The newborn prefolds look very tiny to me and I know that I've only used small prefolds on my previous babies. Hoping  they work.

Heh, I have OS BumGenius & OS Swaddlebees leftover from DD1, but I know the "small" setting will be too big and bulky for my newborns. I used XS Bummis covers and prefolds with DD1 but sold them for some reason.  This time I bought some newborn GroVia and... um, something else... for the first 3 lbs or so. :)

OH I am so jealous!  Your diaper stashes are so adorable! joy.gif  I have 24 motherease diapers and inserts someone gave me, but they are OS and enormous looking.  And I only have maybe 2 or 3 covers, size medium.  :\  I was hoping to get a whole bunch of CD's as gifts, but that didn't happen, and since I can't sew (yet) it looks like we'll be using 7th Generation disposables until LO fits into the motherease dipes.  Oh well.  I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for any good deals on Craigslist.

 

I also bought and cut up lots of fleece/felt to use as cloth wipes and diaper liners as I heard it works well.  Anyone have experience with that?

I don't think they're the newborn size, I think they're just small but I'm not sure.  They really look bulky though, like the insert really had to be "stuffed" in the cover.  Hmmm....I hope they aren't too bulky.  I've never even tried prefolds, not sure why but they seem daunting to me, although hear great stuff about them.  It sounds like you have a good stash setup.

Yea, the OS BumGenius totally look too roomy for a newborn.  I'd guess they're probably more for 11-15 lbs.  And thankfully I only have 1 OS Swaddlebees as it wasn't my favorite, which is weird because I LOVE their sized (side snap) AIO's...They are the best!

Omg, your stash is GORGEOUS! I've been trying so hard to be "good" about buying things for this baby - really, we've bought practically nothing.  Maybe $120 spent total on a ring-sling and some newborn clothies.  I'm going into withdrawl. >.<  I just want to buy a huge stash of little tiny clothies of a dozen different brands and hundreds of colours!  And clooothes, clothes clothes clothes clothes.

 

It's hard to stay minimalist when newborn things are so tiny and awesome. :(

You guys are so organized! Looks great!!!

 

Here is a part of my stash which is currently on mykitchen table... lil girl is so small they don't fit her well yet, even though the cover says 6lbs. I think its a bummis cover size small and a green prefold.

My favorites are Very Baby newborn AIO's.  Everything else, including Kissa 0's, are just too big and bulky on my little guy.  He was only 6 lb. 12 oz. though.  My 2 babies that were over 8 lbs. fit regular newborn diapers a lot better than my 3 tiny babies.  We can do the Green Mountain newborn diapers on him, but even those are pretty bulky.  If there's a next time I might buy some of the preemie prefolds since they have less layers I believe.

Thanks guys!!  I'm obsessed, lol!  I've been working on it since we found out baby is a girl.  I  know I went overboard, but it's our last, and I'll sell and use the Paypal to buy mediums, so...the cycle will continue biggrinbounce.gif

saslewis11- OMG- what a beautiful pink stash! Love it!! I went overboard last time with my 5th baby because I thought it was my last- sadly I sold his stash and had to start over again.

 

Lovelylisa- she is precious!

Thank you all :) I realize now that my last post made no sense. I meant my stash is on the kitchen table, not my baby lol I barely move from the couch these days to organze anything  as lil girl is wanting to nurse constantly.

 

Today is our first day using the cloth dipes.. her cord stump fell off yesterday, right on time because we only have a few pampers left from the hospital. I'm not sure I have the prefold folded right but its huge on her anyway. No poopsplosions yet :)

lovelylisa - your little girl is precious! And so tiny! I'm pretty sure my baby is going to be a lot bigger than that. The tiny babies are soooo cute! I'm jealous. :)
