Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
What have you bought for your stash so far?

Do you have pictures of your growing stash yet?

What have you bought for your stash so far? I haven't bought anything for the new baby yet, waiting to see if we can find out gender first.
What else do you plan to get? some smaller dipes for newborn and small baby. Hopefully some girlie diapers.
Do you have pictures of your growing stash yet?
Here is most of my stash, this was taken in October I think.

adorable! what's all there? what are your favorites?

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
Ok let's see, back row (left to right), Kawaii, alvas (next 2 rows), Bumgenius 4.0 and freetime (the albert einstein one is a freetime), last row has some ones I got on babyhalf off, another co-op and some sunbaby diapers.

Front row: Blueberries (all in one), grovia (all in one), the next 3 rows are WAHM custom sports dipers, the last row are actually 2 covers I got from a co-op, can't remember their names.

My favorites have been the blueberries, bumgenius and the kawaii. The alvas are ok but not the ones I reach for all the time. I dislike the grovia, they are very stiff and don't fit my little guy right.

BTW I just started cd'ing in June when my little man was 9 months old. All but the 2 sunbabies are new. I bought most of my stash from co-ops or on amazon using swag bucks so I didn't spend a whole lot of money.

I like variety too and I like having a large stash because my diapers aren't getting worn. My little guy goes through a lot of diapers in a day so it's nice to not have to wash EVERYDAY.

so you like the freetime? or just the 4.0s? I hear a lot of people like the 4.0s but the freetimes seem to be hit or miss. I thought the BG elementals looked nice, but just didn't fit with the kind of stash I was going for. I got the grovia's only because I heard they were trim between the legs, but I won't be using the grovia inserts. I want to use them as covers. I hear good things about Kawaii :)

So cute! I have some prefolds right now, that's it. I've started shopping around for PUL though so I can get started on my stash :)

BeachMum March 24th, 2013 12:30 PM

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
I like both BGs, they both serve their purpose, the elemental is great for nighttime, because I usually double stuff for night time and the elemental has 2 inserts built in. I was hoping to like the grovia but they are skinny and while my little man is skinny, it just doesn't fit him right, I still use it though and he does fine.

This time I plan on getting some fitteds and more prefolds, I use a lot of flower sack towels and want to get some more cute covers. That'll probably what I use for the little bit. we'll see though, still hoping to find out gender before I start building my stash.

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
gender definitely plays into my diaper choices, so I don't blame you for waiting until then!

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
Still contemplating cd'ing my qestion is can I use all of the same type? Like if I prefer one size pockets can I just use those?

Kelllilee March 24th, 2013 01:01 PM

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
There's nothing wrong with just sticking to one kind. BUT I would recommend starting out with lots of different things because you just don't know what will fit or work for you and your baby until you try them out. Then you can sell off what you don't like and buy all of the kind you do.

alittlelost March 24th, 2013 01:03 PM

Re: Cloth Diaper Mamas
 
Yes, you can use all one kind! And one size pockets is a great choice!

You may want to look into diaper safari pockets. They are having a HUGE sale right now ($8.95 a diaper and these are well-loved diapers) http://www.diapersafari.com/diaper-s...et-diaper.html

Fits 8-35 lbs. If your baby is a little smaller you might temporarily need disposables or buy newborn pocket diapers to get you through the first couple months.

Some one-size pockets don't fit at just 8 lbs but these should.

I have bought 1 thirsties duo wrap, 1 Rumparooz cover, 1 Alva OS pocket, 3 OS Assunta store minky pocket diapers, multiple inserts for pocket diapers. I'm waiting on my Happy Flute order from a Co-op to get here. I ordered about 6 covers and 6 OS pocket diapers, charcoal & blend inserts, and 2 large wet bags from them.

I still have to buy more. I've just been buying some here and there, multiple brands, kinds, sizes. Next purchase will be prefolds. I found a nice bundle on Amazon.

Nothing so far! I've been researching but really haven't bought any baby stuff yet. Just been busy and figure I have plenty of time. It's also harder from here because I can't look at anything in person.

You can definitely do just one style of cloth diapers. I've tried lots of different types, but have mostly simplified to one size pockets of just two brands (Fuzzi Bunz and Bumgenius 4.0s). Most of my friends who cloth diaper primarily use one diaper style too.

I think, for a lot of moms, cloth diapering becomes sort of a hobby. It can be fun to try out different things, but it can be really intimidating if you are new. I'd also recommend looking into cloth diaper trials. Several retailers do them and it's a cheap way to try out different diaper brands/styles before committing much money.
