I'm slow at making them, but...
For newborn, I started out with 2 dozen infant cpfs, 3 dozen regular cpfs, 2 Proraps newborn size covers, 4 newborn size Bummis SWWs, 1 newborn size Bummis Super Snap Wrap, and 2 small size Bummis SWWs. When DS was born 10.5 weeks early, I had to get a couple dozen preemie size cpfs as well. CD'd for two months after he came home from the NICU, and stopped a few weeks after his due date... He was probably about 8-9 lbs by then, but peeing like a 3 month old. The infant sized cpfs could NOT handle it, I didn't even think of doubling with a preemie cpf, and I didn't know about other materials or making my diapers, etc. Switched to sposies, but kept using the regular size cpfs as burp cloths, since he was a reflux spitter upper.
Fast forward to 14 months... I decided to try cloth again. I bought a large FB and a large HH with a few different inserts to try out. The HH did NOT fit at all, and the large was big in the leg, but great in the waist. So I returned those and got two PT size FBs instead. Those fit reasonably well, so I bought another dozen. Now I was set and could CD full time. No more sposies.
Then I realized I could MAKE cloth diapers. I started out by selling a couple FBs, using prefolds with a FB as a cover, then using the PP I got to buy some PUL and FOE. I made my first cover from my own pattern. It's a bit narrow, but it works.
Made a couple more covers, then sold 7 more FBs. In the meantime, I was making fitteds, plus I got one Luke's Drawers AI2 off Diaper Swappers. So now my total purchased diaper stash consists of 5 FBs and one Luke's Drawers AI2, plus a Sugar Peas wool cover I got from someone who bought it off the TP and it didn't fit (size medium is a really big medium!!!).
My goal right now is to make a couple pockets for nighttime (I've started using pockets again for that), and make some more fitteds and AIOs/AI2s. Once I have at least 5 of those diapers total, I'll sell the remaining 5 FBs, buy more fabric
, and make even more diapers.
So yes, I intend to use just my own. I'm just really slow at getting around to it!
