Help! Diapers for Newborn

I am getting a bit overwelmed with all the choices there are out there. I really like AIO's and pocket dipes. What are your favorites and which should I stay away from. How many would you say is necessary? Thanks.

All in Ones and pocket diapers are risky in the beginning if you're bfing because those runny breastmilk poop explosions aren't going to be contained as well.

I used fitteds and covers, mostly wool covers. If you want a less expensive option, prefolds work fine but you'll need a lot of covers since the poop is more likely to leak out of a prefold than a fitted. (Although I did have a few leaks even with a fitted). I didn't like prefolds the first 2 weeks or so because newborns keep their legs so curled up that it's hard to get it snappied or pinned on. But once he got a little older, I liked them fine.

I would have at least 3 dozen diapers and 6 covers.
I agree, we will be going with mostly fitteds and covers with baby on the way. I have preemie pfs, but I have added sherpa to them to contain the bf messes. I do have a few AIOs and pockets, but they are really my "show off" diapers and not for every day use.
We plan on having 2 doz preemie pfs ( I have itty bitty babies) and 2 dozen fitteds, 6 PUL covers, 3 wool covers and 4 pair of wool soaker pants that I am making.
