This is all hypothetical of course so no worries about any of your stash leaving your house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> But if you could only have...<br><br>
24 diapers for daytime<br>
up to 6 covers for daytime (if your 24 diapers are something other than pockets/aios)<br><br>
6 diapers for nighttime<br>
2 covers for nights<br><br>
What would you want?<br><br>
I am trying to pare down a too big stash and I am having such a hard time parting with anything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> It's made me curious as to what other people would keep. Oh and if you have less than this already, what do you use and are you happy with it?

OH MY GOSH, I don't even have that many diapers TOTAL!!!!<br><br>
If I had to limit my stash to one type though it would be fitteds(KHW and FMBG) and wool, of course.

I didnt see that, so here is what I have:<br>
9 pocket diapers(7 Happy Heinys, *1 Fuzzi Bunz and 1 Angel Luvz* I got today)<br>
2 KindHearted Women fitteds<br>
1 FMBG natural fitted<br>
and 2 wool soakers<br>
(I also have a dozen prefolds to stuff the pockets with and a few flats for just incases, but I havent used them in forever)<br>
ohh and 1 lone BSWW that I keep in the diaper bag with a flat.<br><br>
I would say I am most happy with my KHW and FMBG, I wash them all through the day just to be able to put them on him again!<br><br>
I LOVE MY STASH but I can't wait until I can get some more fitteds so i dont have to wash them so many times during the day

I wish! still working on developing a stash <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">: I am not sure which I what I would want as a main diaper yet. I like to window shop at alot of places and that's probably why I haven't got anything cool yet...too many choices!!

Well, let's see. I have two in diapers full time.<br><br>
48 fitteds: FLAGs, fleece-lined Pinheads, and SOS<br><br>
Nighttime diapers: Tots Bots<br><br>
16 covers: All wool (3x that much actually) Righteous Baby Wooly Pullies, BaaBaaBottoms - Nighttime wool- Wonderful Woolies shorts or any soaker pants<br><br>
Of course, I've got a bunch of doublers and Little Lounging Lizards, too.<br><br>
I've gotten tired of the stalking and the one diaper of every variety thing. I've decided to stick with what I like and what works for us. There is always going to be a new "in" thing, but it doesn't make what I have work any less. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Maybe I'm not playing right.<br><br>
Do you mean what out of our stash would we keep or what if we had the opportunity would we use if limited?<br><br>
No matter, I guess.<br><br>
Same answer. I have what I want when given those limits. I'll always be open to adding to my numbers, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Well lets see. For my toddler I have just under 2 dozen Aios for day time use and 4 pockets for night time use. My aios are a variety, they all work well and we love each and every one of them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">: .<br><br>
For my nb I have a dozen infant cpfs, a dozen reg cpfs, 1 aio, 1 pocket, 5 fitteds and 9 covers. I guess I could get rid of some of the pfs and a few covers, but I actually go through all the covers because dh leaves them all over the house and I can never find them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
He also has like 8 nightime diapers because hes still pooping at night at 10 weeks old. I could probably get rid of 2 of those and still make it work.<br><br>
Right now I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> our system.<br><br>

I am really happy with my stash right now.<br><br>
I have 14 ME OS<br>
1 SOS - for show off only since I don't really like these<br>
1 Cuddlebuns that I don't like anymore after I washed it so I hardly ever use it, perhaps it will be a diaperbag diaper<br>
12 Fuzzi Bunz<br><br>
2 airflow covers<br><br>
Thats it and I love it. Very simple, I can count on them all.<br><br>
I also have a sprinkle of PFs but those are mostly used at bup rags right now so I won't count them.

You know I thought I would like having all of one kind. Most days I love my 25 fireflies. But I have really been liking our sugar peas and SOS plus I just realized a cuddlebun will fit under my Fuzbomb covers. But I love the drying time of the FF. Plus I know they all fit the same.<br><br>
Anyway...back to the question.<br><br>
12 Fireflies<br>
6 sugarpeas size 1<br>
3 SOS<br>
3 cuddlebuns bikini cut<br><br>
Covers - rice cashmere Kiwi-pie<br>
3 Fuzbombs<br>
2 mama made soaker shorts<br><br>
Nighttime - wool soaker shorts<br>
Firefly sleep tights<br><br>
I would like a better night time system than I have now. But I may just try prefolds again. I hate long drying dipes.

I've got 2 dz ubipfs I could probably part with about 6 of those since I wash so often I don't need a full 2 dz but 1dz isn't enough.<br><br>
I've got a few of these and a few of those, stuff I kept trying out from the TP. I don't have a very big stash but that's ok <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">.<br><br>
I have a few snapping turtle pockets and a wool cover for use with a fitted for bedtime. And I use fitteds and pfs during the day coverless.<br><br>
I'm so not helping you but wanted to be included in this thread :LOL

my DH would kill me if i had that kind of diversity in diapers LOL he hates that i use front AND side snapping dipes, and that he has to snappi prefolds. :LOL<br><br>
we have just about 24 daytime dipes for isabella<br>
some side snapping tykie diapers<br>
some fireflys<br>
some small fuz<br><br>
for daytime covers we have<br>
2 side snapping tykie diapers wool<br>
2 fuz bombs<br>
a couple hand made soakers<br><br>
for night time we have 5 apron strings all fleece pockets and regular sized CPF<br><br>
the problem that i am now facing is the fact that the small fireflys and fuz are starting to be outgrown, and they make up the majority of what we have for isabella. she is way too small too fit into the medium fuz that are alexandra's (which is all we have for her). so.................. i'm trying to get a collection of MEOS and small sandys to fit from now until she potties.

Well, I was really happy with this stash for a long time (we're in the middle of a size change right now, though, so not-so-happy anymore):<br><br>
16 Little Lambs AIO's + 6 extra soakers for daytime<br>
3 Under the Nile fitteds for nighttime<br>
1 sugarpeas fleece cover for night<br>
1 sugarbums fleece cover for night<br>
1 stacinator so simple for night<br><br>
That's it!
