Yesterday I got out a few diapers from my newborn stash (which has been packed away for quite awhile now) to take with me to a baby shower to show to a friend who is planning on using cloth when her son arrives in June. It blew my mind because some of them were so tiny and W is such a chunky monkey now! Eventually I want to review each of the diapers we used in our newborn stash as well as the ones we use in our current stash, but I need to start with a list of what was in our newborn stash so here it is!
W’s newborn stash:
24 Little Lions Infant (4x6x4) Bleached Indian Prefolds
7 Kissaluvs Fitteds size 0
3 XS Thirsties Fab Fitteds (also pictured are 3 size Small)
1 Sugar Plum Baby newborn fitted
4 Thirsties Duo Wrap Covers size 1
1 Blueberry Minky diaper cover (not pictured because we’re still using it!)
5 XS BumGenius 3.0 AIOs
4 Rumparooz Lil Joeys AIOs
1 Thirsties Duo Diaper size 1
1 Small Happy Heiney
2 AppleCheeks size 1 (only 1 pictured, he was wearing the other one at the time!)
All of these diapers got good use except for the prefolds. I will admit that I tried a few times to put him in a prefold but was not quite able to master it (or even do a decent job) and the fitteds with a cover became one of my favorite systems. Even J was more than willing to grab a fitted and a cover!
Apparently prefolds are not for us. And that’s okay!
This was plenty of diapers for us as laundry was getting done every day. My goal was to have enough diapers to only do laundry every other day, but my mom has taken over the diaper laundry duty (what a blessing!) and she prefers to do it every day!
