Cloth diaper stash!

I think I finally have everything that I need for Julia's little bum when she arrives. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't love more-the fluff is just too cute! But here is what I have...




4 Swaddlebees fitted diapers with snaps, 2 thirsties fitted diapers with velcro. These types of diapers require an additional water-proof cover to be put over top of them. The beauty is that you don't have to change the cover with each diaper change. Just rotate two throughout the day-letting the one not in use air out in between uses. 


2 Bum Genius all in ones-the light pink ones. These have a super absorbent core with a waterproof outer layer. They function just like a disposable-the only downside is that they take forever to dry! Next are the covers that form a leak proof barrier over the fitted or prefold diapers. I have 3 XS thirties covers and 1 newborn cover made by Bummis.

Pictured here are 14 infant size prefolds and 4 preemie sized prefolds. These are the "old fashioned" type of diapers or "burp cloths". Pins are no longer used to fasten the diapers, I'll be using a little stretchy thing called a snappi. It has plastic teeth on three ends much like an ace bandage fastener. The snappi is the little green thing on top of the stack of prefolds. Basically, you fold the diaper, snappi it shut, and put one of the covers over it. Easy-peasy
The panda bear that you see is a pair of wool shorties-you would use this like any of the other covers, doubling as super cute little shorts! I also have 26 cloth wipes-good for all sorts of messes, 1 wet bag and 1 pail liner. The wet bag is the pink and green flowered bag in the picture. It is made from a waterproof material, so when out and about you can throw dirty diapers and wet clothes in it. The pail liner is the same concept, only used to line your diaper pail in the nursery.
