Cloth Diapering

Critique my stash! And did I spend too much?

Hi ladies! I started to build my stash and quickly became obsessed!  Now I'm a little concerned that I spent too much.  We're planning to use prefolds and covers during the newborn phase. I plan to wash every other day. Here is what I have so far:

Newborn Stash

  • Prefolds - 6 newborn GMD prefolds, 12 infant/small prefolds, planning to buy 12 more either small GMD or Imagine bamboo if they ever come back in stock
  • Covers - 7 small/newborn covers (Thirsties, Bummis, Imagine, & Kawaii)
  • One newborn AIO

Older Stash

  • 15 One size pockets (Swaddlebees/Blueberry, BG 4.0, Kawaii, FB, RaR)
  • 10 OS AIO's (Grovia, TotsBots, Swaddlebees, BG Freetimes)
  • 1 Medium AIO
  • Inserts - 1 hemp doubler, 1 Babykicks premium hemp insert, 1 Applecheeks 2 ply bamboo, 1 Thirsties small, 1 Best Bottom stay dry insert
  • 4 OS Covers (Flip, Best Bottom, Blueberry)


3 snappi's, 1 wetbag (will buy a second one if we don't get it at our shower), 45 cloth wipes (homemade), CD safe diaper cream, spray bottle, wipe solution (homemade), laundry detergent (homemade)

I only have a handful of inserts because I don't know which ones will work best.  I also plan on using prefolds to stuff pockets.   This is our first and we plan on using CD's for future kiddos as well.  About half of this stash was bought new on sale and the other half was bought used.  I plan to sell what doesn't work for us. 

So far I've spent $115 on our NB stash (after the last order of prefolds) and $445 on the rest for a total of $560.  I'm worried because I haven't even entered the world of wool and that seems like it can be very pricey.   Plus the inserts are pricey too if I find that a particular one works well for us.
