I am expecting our new baby boy at the begining of December, and I am trying to finish out his stash. The thing is I have never CD'd a nb and don't know how many dipes I will need. Here is what I have so far<br><br><b>Covers</b><br>
1 Poochies Wool Wrap<br>
1 Nikky Wool wrap<br>
2 prowraps2 bummis<br>
1 cotton wrap<br>
1 reusabums soaker<br>
1 Grateful buns soaker<br>
2 felted aristocrats<br>
1 pair GMWW longies<br>
1 Pair babyology longies<br>
1 pair longies (made by an MDC mama)<br><br><b>Fitteds</b><br>
5 unknown wahm fitteds<br>
1 sellin threads nb/sm<br>
2 snap dragons nbs<br>
1 diaper babies nb<br>
4 nanipoo's nb<br>
3 unknown nb/sm<br>
1 FMBG sm<br>
2 dozen prefolds<br><br><b>AIO's</b><br>
6 Bumware nb (these are supposed to fit to 12lbs)<br>
2 WAHM fleece AIO's<br>
1 Beccabottoms pocket<br>
1 LL AIO<br><br>
I also have quite a few infant sized bumware that should fit starting at 10lbs.<br><br>
I would like to use mostly fitteds and wool, and aio's for going out. The prefolds were given to me by a friend and I mean to use them folded into the wraps more as back up than a system. So do I have enough diapers for this to work? Do I need to get more fitteds? I plan on using all AIO's after the nb/sm size so I have been stocking up on those.

Well, a good rule of thumb for newborns is 36 diapers. I think if you just want the prefolds as backup you'd need a few more fitteds.<br><br>

Looks like a nice stash <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I agree though that if you're not planning on using prefolds daily then you need some more fitted or aio's. You could always get a few more small pockets too. I think you will have plenty of covers.

What they said. Plenty of covers, but I'd get about 6 more fitteds since I detest using prefolds, esp. on newborns <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> With DS we only had 12 kissaluvs 0s and I washed them twice a day since I didn't want to waste money on more NB fitteds and hated all the CPFs I had. Yeah, I was a freak. They never sat long enough to stain though! :LOL<br><br>
For this one I've got 3 dozen fitteds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/yeahthat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yeah that">: maybe turn prefolds into prefitteds? <a href="http://www.growmearainbow.com" target="_blank">www.growmearainbow.com</a> does it for a reasonable price.

I think that looks great! I had about 20 or so diapers for the newborn stage and that was fine for me. I bought a bunch of CPF's as backups since I had heard you need 36 diapers, but I never needed to use them. I washed every other day.

If it was me, I'd get more wraps <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> . Those runny NB poos happen often, and sometimes leak on covers. The nylon type wraps were great for us (especially bummi SWW velcro), especially if your wool gets dirty.
