Do you think this is a big enough stash for newborn?

So far this is what I have.

2 flats
12 infant prefolds
2 pockets
7 fitteds
4 aios
4 covers (2 are small so might be to big)
5 snappies
And various doubles/inserts

I'm thinking I need a couple more covers. Whatcha think?

A couple more covers and fitteds or prefolds.

ETA: 24 diaper changes is a good start for a newborn.

My NB went through at least 12 diapers a day. You would be washing every day.

I had 48 diaper changes and wouldn't do it with any less. There were still times I was just pulling out of the laundry basket.

I would probably get at least 3 more covers!

Edit: if you can afford some extra changes, even if its just some flats, I would get some. My biggest pet peeve when starting out was not bring able to leave any in he diaper bag for outings, because I had just enough and needed those precious changes. I would get 3 changes JUST for the diaper bag. There is enough to worry about when taking a newbie out, packing diapers shouldn't be one of them!

I'm counting 27 diaper changes, assuming your covers hold out, which I'm not sure if I would count on if you think 2 of them are too big. I would personally get 2-3 more covers at the minimum.

If you could swing it, I would buy another dozen prefolds to have on hand for the days when the laundry just doesn't get done on time. Since they'd just be your back up, maybe size up to smalls so that you could use them longer.

I would definitely get more than 27 changes, unless for some reason you're trying to keep it really small.
I have about 60 changes for my LO due in April, which will allow some for the diaper bag/car, some for my mom's house, and allow me to wash every three days like I currently do with my 18 month old.

Also keep in mind that some of those doublers could very well work as newborn changes. My ds was able to use softbums doublers for about 7-8 weeks!

This would be for washing every day, day and a half ish? It's okay. I would probably go for 1 more cover.

Honestly I would try for 2 days wash and maybe get 3 more of something -- though if you get 3 more that need a cover then maybe 2 covers overall.
