Do you think that this would be enough?
2 xs longies
2 xs knit covers
1 xs interlock cover
1 nb wool wrap
4 PUL covers
*maybe a pair of woolybottoms
 
It will be used over various fitteds and workhorses. I have a dozen PFs as backup. I'll be honest, I'm hoping to finish my nb stash by the end of the month so then I can work on the bigger sizes that last longer Embarrassed
 
Oh, and do you think sleep sacks are necessary? Or just a nice convience? Make night changes easier or just as easy to change a fitted and slap on a wrap?

I *think* so as long as you are willing to not procrastinate with washing your wool. . Even though I used good fitting fitteds poop still escaped on to the wool covers a decent amount with all that explosive newborn poop. As long as you keep up with keeping the woolies clean I think you should be okay.

I don't think sleep sacks are necessary, just a nice and cute convenience.

I might get a couple more PUL covers, but then again I am not a big fan of washing wool.  There's no way I could have kept up with woolie washing with the amount of poosploding my LOs have done as newborns unless I had a massive stash of wool.  Mine have almost always gotten at least a little poo on the covers no matter what type of diaper I was using.

I would also get maybe two more pul. Not much leaking into the cover here, but my kiddos' covers needed to air out especially if they pooped, which was like every hour, or if they totally soaked the diaper, which was what, every 15 minutes?    We had a lot of pul covers (and 8 pieces of wool) and used them all every laundry cycle.

DroolBig smile  All that wool is really nice! That looks good to me.  What kind of PUL covers are you going to use?

what I described sounds like a huge stash but with less it was tough to keep up with laundry with two in dipes. :)

Oh and sleepsacks - I still used a soaker or wrap underneath because otherwise, her shirt and bent-up froggy legs would get wet from a soaked diaper

I think that should be good. And if not I think you'll know soon enough. I ended up ordering 1 more xs Thirsties after my last guy was born and I got it in plenty of time to get a lot of use out of it. And now you could go with a size 1 and get even more, but you may totally not need it.

I've never understood how their shirt wouldn't get wet with a sleepsack.

Never thought about the shirt getting damp in a sleepsack!
 
I have a Rumparooz NB cover and an XS thirsties already. I got them during a black friday sale *right* after I found out I was pg. *embarassed*  LOL I'm waiting til we find out boy or girl to order more. I think I'm going to get size 1 duo wraps. Maybe a mini coverall. Or Bummis Lite Wrap. Never know! lol

I would have loved to try the mini coverall because if it fits like our bigger coveralls do it would have worked out nice.  I think thirsties duos would be great for newbie too.  The only issue I had with newbie wool was the compression leaking because he didn't move much but I didn't have problems with leaking poo from the fitteds under it.

Bree, what about just using the traveling treasure box(pinpals) for the NB pul covers?

I love using sleepsacks and still do.  Unless you meant ones that also double as diaper covers?  If so, then I have no experience with those.  I had an A&A muslin sleep sack for summer and a fleece one for winter.  Benjamin knows when he goes into his sleep sack (which is only for night, not naps) that beddy-by is coming...

Tracy, I meant the wool ones to use as covers! But I think I'm going to try the sleepsac thing this time as well. Mason hated to be swaddled. Logan had to be slowly weaned off it. lol So we'll see how this babe acts!
 
Mikia, I was going to be Meghan is up before me and I don't want to take the chance that she won't be done before I need them and then I have to order last minute. I figure it can skip me and go to Emily... I think she's next up.
