Starting with only NB cloth?

Ok so I'm thinking of starting out with 11 flats from GMD, 6 NB or small prefolds, about 4 maybe 5 aio, and of course 4 or 5 covers, is that too little of a stash? Also I only plan on getting one or two of my 5 covers as One size, would baby outgrow the new born too quick? Should I just go ahead and get more os? Or wait to see what brands I like?

Hmmm. I don't think you can use nb diapers to determine what brands you like. Some brands have great nb diapers but their os diapers are so-so. Others, bg for example, have great os diapers, but their nb diapers are useless. I'd instead use nb diapers to determine what TYPE of diaper you like. Prefolds, aios, pockets, fitted, etc, although even that can depend on size of baby somewhat. But I'd still do that.

Re: Starting with only NB cloth?

That's about 20-22 diapers total...I would think you would want a few more. That may not even be two days' worth. Newborns pee SO often, and in cloth you generally change every time they pee, which can be 12-18 diapers per day. It's insane. I would say at least two dozen, three dozen would be better. They don't have to be fancy, but you'll want there to be enough, you know? Good luck!

I usually make a list of the things I want to try or need then between now and babies due date keep your eye out for deals. Especially with your first time buying you don't want to spend full price on a ton of stuff you may end up hating and reselling anyway.
