cloth diaper stash susanesque 2 kids; Georgia 8425 posts

So for this baby we've decided to do cloth diapers. Thought about it with DD, but I felt too overwhelmed to take on anything else new! :P



So since I was bored I decided to fill up an online cart with all the things I think I might need. If you cloth diaper please tell me if the cost sounds right, or if there is anything you would add or subtract from this list.



I know I have a while yet, but I like to over-prepare. ;)



2 pail liners
1 wetbag
case of diaper detergent (enough to do all our laundry for a long time)
2 thick microfiber inserts
2 hemp doublers
1 6pk regular doublers
1 doz unbleached indian prefolds
1 sm (8-15lb) waterproof cover
3 one size covers
1 sm (6-18lb) fitted diaper
8 one size pocket diapers
6 one size all-in-ones
3 snappis
box of pins
30 cloth wipes (I plan to use plain water at first)



counting each prefold that would be 27 diapers. Grand total (free shipping!) comes to $553.38. Obviously wont actually be ordering anything until feb or mar when we find out what we're having, but it's fun to look!



Ok... experienced thoughts? :)

thats sounds good to me! you can always sell and swap too on FB when it comes to cloth diapers..

and you could get porbably close to 450 dollars back of what you bought through reselling your stash!

Sweet! I'm just wishing I had bit the bullet and done this with DD. We ran out of diapers once and I had to use the prefolds someone gave me as burp rags... I think that's when I realized I could do it!

I too am looking to cloth diaper.



Just so you know, if you want to tray OS, Alva diapers are really cheap and you can find co-ops to buy them for about half the price. Inserts are less than 2.00 each too :) sometime they also order other things like decals :)
