I just got all my cloth diapers in the mail that I ordered I am pretty excited!! I got a variety to see what I like best. Funny thing is I thought I would totally like the pocket diapers best but I actually think I will be doing mostly covers w/prefolds or inserts.



I bought:
3 grovia newborn AIO's( top left)
1 Thirstie duo wrap size 1(middle row far left)
1 kissaluvs training pants for DD@night (bottom far left)
1 Alvababy one size pocket(bottom row 2nd to left)
1 wooleybug one size cover(bottom row middle)
1 econobum one size cover( middle row middle)
1 fuzzibunz one size elite (top row middle) FREE from kellys closet
6 sunbaby size 2 pockets w/bamboo inserts( far right side)

Awesome! I'm waiting a little while longer to start ordering, mainly because I have nowhere to put them yet! I'm going to order a variety to see what we like best, but I have a feeling getting DH onboard will require using a lot of the AIOs. Prefolds and covers are "too much work"

Yay so fluffy!!!

IMO washing is easy for an EBF baby on no solid food. Their poop washes right out so no extra steps at all, and they aren't as prone to stink issues, toddlers just have way smellier and grosser pees and poops and it takes more treatment to wash them well! But washing is rarely an issue for people who are not afraid to use bleach or oxyclean, hot hot water, and/or mainstream detergents if that's what it takes to get them really clean. If you can wash soiled bed sheets or towels, you can wash diapers

I was too at first but then I from reading found that cd babies don't pee & poop through outfits really so I figure it is a trade off...outfits for diapers. Also I am getting a sprayer to attach to my toilet.

Yay! I got all my newborn diapers just a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant and they're all sitting in a cabinet somewhere. We got a TON of baby clothes at Goodwill today; I can't wait to get everything washed and sorted and put away!

Great stash so far! It makes me want to go through my diapers to see what I have and what I need

So true. I scrubbed so much poo off clothes with Lily in disposable diaper. The poo just squirts up the back without anything to hold it in. I rarely had poo on clothes with Abri, or if I did it was just a teeny bit. The cloth keeps the poo contained.

NICE!! I have the GroVia owl print that you have. But mine is just a shell without the snap-in soaker. I use it as a cover with my prefolds.

We didn't start CDing my son until he was 7-8 months old so this will be my first time CDing a newborn. I have already started ordering newborn diapers through my co-ops. I can't wait to get them in and prep them. Yep, I am sick .

About how many covers/inserts or prefolds does one need for an adequate stash? I'm trying to figure out how much I need to buy!

For a newborn the usual recommendation is 24-36 changes. So say 30 prefolds and 6 covers, if you are using a snappi. It depends a lot on the baby. M was huge and ate a lot and pooped a LOT and we started with 24 but I quickly realized I needed another dozen!!! I had about 8 covers and that was more than enough but it was fun having them to match outfits etc.
