@Ms Mini: Me too! It was my first BABY purchase! I am 17 weeks 🙂 ALMOST HALFWAY THERE!!!

Also, I’m not sure if it’s just the retailer I use, or if Bumgenius is offering the promotion for all their retailers, but they’re having a promo until the end of October, buy 5 get 1 free. Check it out HERE. I’m going to get them with next month’s budget!! Soo excited.

The Charlie Banana One Sized Butterfly is back in stock! Just thought I’d let everyone know. Unless everyone already knew that and I’m just late to the party…. which wouldn’t suprise me.

@firsttimemom: I don’t know if you saw this, but Charlia Banana also came out with some new prints and instead of there being a button to adjust the leg elastic, they are now using a ‘bra-like’ mechanism. This new feature is being included on the butterfly print as well.

@808bride: THANKS! I missed the AIO, they sold out, but Darling Husband said I could buy the 3-pack pink shells (snaps) and 50 ct biosoakers! Came to 37.99 (+shipping) but I’m so excited to make my first cloth purchase! Probably better deals with no shipipng elsewhere, but .. with biosoakers 7.99, and each shell about $16, not bad!!

Reviving this thread to get some insight….

LO is due in a few weeks so I’m trying to get my starter stash together.

So here’s what I got coming to me…. I decided to try a variety and not go with JUST one kind of diap:

2 BG NB ao1
3 FB perfect size xsmall pockets
1 Charlie Banana 2 in 1 (I know I may have to hold off on using it for size purposes but w/ the leg adjustments it may work)
1 Thirsties sz 1 duo ao1
~15 prefolds
2 Thirsties hemp inserts
3 Thirsties sz 1 duo wrap covers

That’s 6 ao1’s/pockets, 15 folds, & 3 covers

I also have 12 sunbabies w/ 12 inserts but don’t expect them to fit for a bit.

Accessories:

3 snappi’s
1 planet wise pail liner
1 planet wise med wetbag
roll of diap flushable liners for the nb poo
diap detergent

I’m also making cloth wipes out of some flannel recieving blankets we got and making my own wipe solution

I’m primarily a sahm so washing won’t be a huge issue, but hows that look for a minimum start?.. What am I missing?

@runsyellowlites:  Honestly, I’m not quite sure it’s enough. My newborn son goes through his 20 fuzzibunz diapers pretty quickly, we are having to do laundry every other day right now. Newborns go through 10-12 diaper changes a day. But if you do laundry every day or every other it could work.

My sister does prefolds and quite often her son soaks the prefold through and gets the cover dirty too, so she has 6-8 covers in rotation usually. 

Also, I would suggest just getting the fuzzibunz OS instead of the perfect size. My son was born 7 lbs 1.4 oz and he fits into the newborn setting in the OS just perfectly. It would mean not having to buy as many diapers if you get the OS.

@runsyellowlites:  I’m also worried that you might need a ltitle more…  We’re starting out w/ a newborn cloth diaper rental, since we figure our baby probably won’t fit into the one-size pocket diapers that we bought right away.  For the newborn rental they’re sending us 20 fitted inserts and 5 covers with the expectation that you would do laundry at least every other day.  We just send them back to the rental company once baby grows into her one-sized diapers.

@skibobrown:  I have a few different brands of OS pockets, the only one that fits my NB is the Fuzzibunz OS because of the leg and waist elastic adjustments. but BG doesn’t fit him yet or any other snap-rise OS.

@skibobrown:  @miss-spunkin:  Thanks ladies! I’ll be washing everyday… so that’s not an initial issue. This is just what I know for sure I’ll have before baby arrives. I’ll make another order here in a couple weeks, but it may be a little late. lol

As for the fb os.. I talked with a few moms that actually had to hold off on the xsmall perfect fit b/c their newborn’s legs were too “scrawny”… eek!

And I wish we had a rental service here for the nb stage, but no… we actually JUST started getting CD in our ONLY baby boutique here recently. =/

I also want to get some more Thirsties aio sz 1 b/c I’ve heard they’re a good fit for most newborns and hopefully will last some time.

I don’t want a very big nb stash b/c who knows… baby may not even fit in them. lol
