I totally scored 10 Good Mama fitteds for $10 shipped! They are all in great condition but the lady, a girl from the cloth diaper group that Landon'sMommy referred me too(love this group!), is done with them and didn't feel like listing them all separately. I seriously could sell them for $25-35 WHEN I'M DONE with them! Also bought 2 other dipes that are also great for $10 each. I'll post pics when I get them

So far I have:
A ton of prefolds(like 6 dozen I think) & 18 covers for when newborn
24 OS Sunbaby pockets w/ 48 inserts
12 OS fitted GMs(had purchased 2 prior to this)
2 Blueberry OS pockets w/ Thirsties inserts
4 OS Fuzzibunz Elite pockets w/ 2 inserts each
1 Baby Kicks OS hemp fitted
1 Piddle Poddles OS w/ new insert
1 Cutey Baby OS pocket(Thank you Ashleigh!)
1 Flip OS cover (Again, Thanks Ashleigh!)

I will need more covers but otherwise I am so beyond set on dipes. Don't tell dh though lol...may find more good deals lol I am also having my mom make my wipes right now since she has my serger. I'm not sure how many I will have with the 4 yards of flannel I bought but I'll just make more as I need them.

Anyone else want to share how their stash is coming along?

So awesome, Rebecca! Nothing is better than better a fantastic deal. Your diaper stash seems absolutely ample, you have some great stuff and a lot of it.
I'm all good on diapers since I had 2 in diapers at one point. It really beefed up my stash - I think I have enough for twins.

Thats an awesome deal and a great stash! And youre welcome

I just did a load of new citybaby/babyland diapers yesterday. I know they have pretty mixed reviews but I paid about $2 each brand new so I thought it would be worth a shot. I need to be making inserts now...

Ive been procrastinating organizing and inventorying everything. Over the next week, Ill have it done. My sister is now in England so I have a free room and dresser to use for all the baby stuff thats been tucked in various places in my bedroom. So I'll get back to ya on my stash

Yay I can't wait to hear/see what ya got. I haven't heard of those diapers so I looked them up. They look good to me...seems like if you make the inserts they will work great.

The biggest complaint Ive seen about them is that the quality can be hit and miss. Not a bad $2 gamble though I think if the inserts are decent, it should be ok.

That's what they say about the Sunbaby and Kawaii and Alva etc...my Sunbabies look great so who knows. At $2 you can't really lose. How many did you get of them?

So far my stash includes 18 fitted Kissaluvs Sz 0, and I have 6 covers of various brands.
I have some Bummis Prefolds on the way and some more covers and a couple AIOs that will fit a wee one (as Meve is expected to be small).
I need some more prefolds both is newborn sizes and infant sizes.
We will manly be doing prefolds and the adding pockets, AIOs, Fitted as we go and find what works.

It's hard finding good deals as I'm in Canada and everyone charges a lot for shipping.

Awesome deal on them. I have a similar pattern that I want to make up but then realized DH hates fitteds and he'll be doing most of the changes come 10w.

My stash is BORING right now.
5 dozen infant prefolds. (accidently bought 3 dozen of the same size I already had and didn't know I did).
2 bummis covers (emergency use only since I really hate PUL on nbs).
4 fleece covers (4 more cut out and I hope to finish tomorrow). My favorite for NB
2 fleece sacks covers. I may make another few if I can find tops to match.
14 small La-Di-Da pockets finished (3 more to do once I get elastic)
4 small Fattycakes pockets

I have to make another 10 pockets but I'll wait until she comes. I have 3 other patterns to try but wasn't sure smalls wouldn't be too big and NB will be too small.

I also need to make inserts. I have 15 so far. Need at least another 30. (I use them for all sizes as second inserts since I usually have really heavy wetters.)

Have you tried Assunta . I've been ordering snaps and such from her for years. She offers free shipping to Canada. Her OS pockets and fitteds and covers have really good feedback. The profits help a local orphanage in China that she has been sewing for.

Wow, that's great! I love finding good deals!


My stash so far is
3 Thirsties Covers (6-18lb) (Got these from the Thirsties FB group, and only paid $15 for all 3!)
10 Gerber Prefolds (NB-24mo)
1 Sunbaby (size 1)

I still intend to get more of the Gerber prefolds, and a bunch more Sunbabies, since that's going to make up the majority of our stash. But I'm not using Sunbabies during the NB stage (heard they don't work well for that) so I'm not in a rush for those.
So really, other than getting more Gerber prefolds, I'm set. I figure I can wipe down the covers, unless they're super gross, so 3 should work. Who knows, I might eat my words.

Great stashes guys Sorry about the troubles with shipping, Meghan I really wish my sewing skills were good enough to make dipes but alas they are not.

Brittany-Have you looked into other brands of prefolds? I hear wonderful things about the Cloth-eez and they aren't too spendy. Try Green Mountain Diapers: Cloth diapers and diaper covers for baby if interested...great site for info too.

Yes I have 2 large pail liners and 3 small wetbags, one w/ zipper, two w/ drawstrings. I know I'm going to like the zippered one more. Also, I have 2 1/2 rolls of liners(the lady threw in the partial), 10 snappis(bought as group new but resale or I wouldn't have bought so many), 1 diaper sprayer(new)...I think that's all of it. I also have 10 prefolds sewn into fitteds but not sure I'll use those...they seem really stiff. I should take some pics of what I do have. Let me try out my camera and see if I can load pics from that. Be back in a bit.

I prefer hemp fleece though for NB/Smalls I'm using cotton fleece and sherpa only because I have it already. Leaving my hemp for medium/larges when they pee more. I also have bamboo fleece and bamboo hemp to try this time. 3 layers are needed for inserts. From 1 yard, I usually get 4-5 inserts. Takes less than an hour to make them. Worth it to make your own if you have a serger.
