My Newborn Cloth Diaper Stash Thus Far

As Most of you know We are expecting our Little Baby Girl to arrive this October. (Hopefully not any sooner) Well as soon as I found out that we were expecting Baby #3 I started to think about what I would need in order to Cloth Diaper her from the start. I Started Cloth Diapering Lil Worm when he was 3 Months old. I started mostly with Bum Genius one size that a good Friend of mine gave me as a welcome gift for Lil worm. I Currently have Lots of One size Pocket Diapers and Baby Girl will be able to share them with her Brother as soon as they start to fit . (witch is normally around 10 lbs) Of Coarse I will need to buy fer some Girly Print Pockets of her very own,but I can add that to my stash little by little. I decided to go mostly with Prefolds and Covers for the Newborn stage. I Purchased my Un Bleached Prefolds from Cotton Babies. A wile ago they were on sale and I got a Dozen Preemie Prefolds for $0.60 each. I also Bought a Dozen infant size Prefolds for $1.20 each. I Purchased 3 Bummies Super Brites in the Newborn size in Green,Yellow and PINK:) I Purchased a Bummis Super Whisper wrap in the Flowers Print. I purchased 2 Cutey Baby all in 2 diapers from a Local Diaper shop near my house. I could not pass up how cute they were. Also I purchased a WAHM Diaper Cover in pink with Ruffles on the Back from the same shop. I Purchased a Pale Pink Newborn Diaper Cover from a Shop on Etsy called Swaddle In Cloth. It looks to be made real well. Lastly I purchased a Lavender Wool Shorties from the Etsy shop called Bunny Tails cloth Diapers by the Cloth Diaper mommy. These are Super Tiny and are so cute. They are sized Preemie /Newborn and I think will fit great when she 1st comes home. Also I have Purchased a Pink and Purple Snappi,but I forgot to get a Picture of them. I am contemplating getting a couple Rumparooz Lil Joeys because they are so stinkin cute, but I have heard mixed reviews on them so I have not ordered any yet. Tell me is there anything you would recommend I add to my Newborn stash?

I love the one with ruffles!!! If I have a girl you will have to give me the address to that store.
I love the shorties. Can you give me the measurements for those? I want to make some but don't know what size to make them.
Do you have enough cloth wipes? I know I will have to get more. I use mostly baby wipes.
The only other thing I can think of is some fitteds like Kissaluv 0 and 1. You might want the extra absorbancy at night so you don't have to change so often. I got some off of craigslist for $5 each! Keep an eye out and I bet you'll get lucky.
I'm so excited you're having a girl!!

How cute!! Looks like you are off to a good start! I had a company send me a pink and green newborn diaper not long ago for my baby and since I had a boy I am going to be offering the pink one up for giveaway in September when I do my Baby Event on my blog. :)

Hey! I didn't know you had a blog! Thanks for the advertising! I don't call my shop Bunny Tails anymore, though because I found out a lady already had it. It's just "clothdiapermommy" now.

Good luck with your stash! I'm making a friend her own NB/regular stash for her shower. I'll include some of my own but I also bought some other WAHM diapers and some bumgenius, Rumparooz, etc.

Good luck! :-D

I don't know why I didn't think to tell you this in my other comment but a lady on Etsy sells AIO newborn dollars for only $7 a pop. I bought some from her because I figured it was worth paying that price to save the time that it would take me to sew them. Anyway, they are SUPER cute and her shipping is really reasonable as well. Her name is HippieMade. LOVE her!!! I haven't had a chance to try them since they're for a friend due in September, but I could always get back to you with my friend's feedback once her baby's born if you'd like :-D
