Of course! Though as someone else mentioned its always best to try a few and find what really works best for you! We started with Sunbaby's and other PUL pocket diapers. They functioned perfect for us but my son had a huge problem with PUL diapers. We even tried WAHM branded pockets with hidden PUL to see if maybe that work but it never did. We now use (and love!) fitteds, Goodmama brand specifically, exclusively. We will be using them with Alice as well.

Most people tend to naturally come down to one or just a handful of brands as their stash grows and they find what works best for them.

Here is what I have right now. I really need to sort through it all! I coul stand to get rid of some diapers that I don't use often for sure.

6-7 (or more) bumgenius 4.0s
3-4 bumgenius 3.0s that have been snap converted
3 bumgenius elementals
8 bumgenius all in one sized diapers - mediums
3 bumgenius all in ones - small
7-8 fuzzi bunz one size
2 happy hempy fitteds
2 swaddlebees econappis
a few odds and ends pockets - a happy heinys, a snap ez
3 babeegreens growing green one size organic cotton
30ish small muslin flats
An assortment of covers - 4 small, 3 mediums maybe one large. Mostly thirstees and bummis.
Wet bags, hanging - two medium, two large. Two are planet wise and two are monkey foot designs (my favorite!)
WAHM wipes
A bung of extra liners - loopydos, joeybunz, some no name hemp.

I definitely have more than I need for my son from when I had two in cloth. Hopefully my son will potty train before this baby girl is born. I might get a couple small diapers and covers, but will probably just do disposables at the beginning since we are moving right when baby comes. And I'd like to get some girly colors! Buying cloth can be addictive!

What have you bought for your stash so far? 4 sets of boingos, 5 covers, 24 prefolds.
What else do you plan to get? I am not sure. I'd like to double up on what I have. I know I will need more prefold, I only have newborn right now. The covers are all one size and one extra small.
Do you have pictures of your growing stash yet? Not yet, I literally just got my covers and my boingos in the mail. Like 5 minutes ago! I'm still petting them

My prefolds. 24 NB indian cloth from Nickis.


My covers
Darker green is flip one size. Lighter green happy heinys one size. Blue Imagine one size. White Imagine one size. Purple thirsties extra small. (Didnt realize it was purple with pink when i ordered it. It was on sale with no picture and the description said something about baby bird???) Boingos, a set of orange, white, blue and yellow.

My stash looked so meager!

SOOOOO I ordered this today with chosen colors being snow, marigold, indigo and emerald:
http://www.nickisdiapers.com/imagine...n-package.html

and 2 more sets of boingos. I have Blue, Orange, White and green but got 2 sets of Glow In the dark yellow.:
http://www.nickisdiapers.com/boingo-...fasteners.html

I am so excitedfor them to get here now I think the next on my CD wish list is a few packs of wipes and a wetbag or two? I've never used either before. I just kept a roll of doggy bags from the petstore in the diaper bag for keeping dipes away from other stuff and used disposable wipes. i found if I got te good ones i could use them, wash them with the dipes and use them again 2-3 times before they fell apart too much.

I need to get a move on with my stash! So far I have a dozen GMD newborn prefolds, and a few xs covers. I have some small Fuzzi Bunz leftover from when my 4 year old was in cloth, and a couple BG left, but other than that, I need to work on building.
