Our Cloth Diaper Stash

I recently sold most of my pockets and built lil Miss Evangeline a new stash of cloth diapers made mostly of fitted diapers.  And, I've been working on building Molly Jo's cloth diaper stash, this time splurging a bit on a newborn fitted stash.  (With Evangeline, her newborn stash was flats and prefolds with Bummis Super Brite and Thirsties Duo Wrap size 1 covers)

{diapers nicely organized into bins}

Molly Jo:

11 Birds-Eye flats (I must have lost one)
4 Dark Green Edge prefolds
5 Gerber Prefolds

1 Cotton Sherpa Small or Newborn Kissa Contour
2 Small Floral Contours
2 Small Sckoon fitteds
5 Diaper Drive Thru Newborn fitteds
4 Newborn Patooshie Fitteds
1 Gussie Pocket (made by me) fitted
8 Small flannel diapers (7 made by me) [Evie outgrew these around 6 months old]
2 Small Organic Hideaway diapers
3 Medium Stage 2 Drybees (adjustable)
1 Medium Piper's Closet diaper
5 Medium Thirsties Fab Fitteds
8 Tinkle Trap Converted Prefold Fitteds

4 GroBaby/GroVia diapers (I have a 5th.. somewhere...)

1 Black OS Tweedlebug Pocket diaper
2 Small Fuzzibunz pocket diaper (white)
3 Pink OS BumGenius pocket diapers (fit on the small side, IMO)
2 Blueberry OS pocket diapers

1 OS Wool cover
1 small wool cover
2 small pair of fleece longies
4 Thirsties Duo Wraps size 1 [Evie outgrew these around 6 months as well]
1 Weehugger cover size 1


3 wool soakers (covers)
2 Bummis Super Brite wraps (1 medium, 1 grand. Grand is still a little too big.)
1 Lavender Thirsties Duo Wrap (size 2)
1 Kushies cover
2 Snapless Fleece wraps (made by me)
1 Fleece soaker (made by me)
3 Fleece "capris" (made by me)

3 Nifty Nappies fitteds
6 Large Muttaqin fitteds
4 Large Sandy's ME fitteds
2 MEOS (Mother Ease One-Size) fitteds

To share (but mostly for Evie):

3 OS Muttaqin fitteds
2 Bumpkie Bottoms Snapless OS fitteds
2 OS Cheeky Cloth fitteds
2 Bugga Bugga Boutique fitteds (OS)
1 snapless zebra/floral BSRB
1 Egg & Bacon Soothe Baby OS fitted
1 Tinkle Trap side snap fitted
3 Good Mamas

and a bunch of inserts, mostly bamboo or hemp. I'm sure I have more diapers here and there I forgot to mention, but this is what was among the things I was organizing (or was waiting to arrive in the mail). I purchased the majority of my diapers in excellent used condition from other cloth diapering mamas. Therefore, I have some really great high-quality diapers without paying a high-quality price! :)

A lot of my friends have exclaimed that I have a large stash- if only they knew how big the average cloth diaper stash is! I know many women who have far more than I have... and for only one child!

I'd really like to get a dozen more diaper for Evangeline so I don't have to wash as often.  Since Evie has not been interested in using the potty at all lately (there's your Elimination Communication update!), we've gone through a lot more diapers, so I usually have to wash every other day. It's not a big deal, but it'd be really nice to wash every three days instead.  However, since for years I had a tiny stash and was accustomed to washing every day, I am thankful that I can nearly squeeze in three days out of Evangeline's stash.

Our current stash- this photo is missing a little over 2 dozen diapers from our stash.

I'm going to start reviewing some my favorite diapers, so you'll know what I love about my new stash! Check back for that if you're curious about cloth!
