So, to celebrate being able to use my pocket diapers again after the Flats and Handwashing Challenge, I thought it would be fun to do a stash post. I don’t think I’ve ever done one of those, and my stash has evolved a lot since the start of this blog! There also seems to be a general feeling among some of our Twitter friends that Jeniffer and I win diapers all the time, and there’s been a few requests to see our stash, so I thought I would oblige! I’ll also share which diapers I’ve won, but it’s really not that many. Jeniffer will be sharing her stash on Friday. These are all the diapers that currently fit Nehemiah. I don’t have many sized diapers, but I do have a few covers and things that don’t fit any more, so they are not listed or pictured.
I started cloth diapering with receiving blanket flats, pins and Gerber pull-on plastic covers from Wal-Mart. From there, I branched out and bought 24 birds-eye flats, three x-small Thirsties covers, and 2 x-large Thirsties covers. I continued to use flats for quite some time, but between review diapers, my few wins, and the awesome box a friend sent me, I now have quite a decent stash. I certainly can’t complain!
So what all is up there?

I also have a few that are not pictured. I let a bag of diapers sit for a bit to long, so I am fighting some mildew issues (ew!). Not pictured – BumGenius 4.0 in grasshopper (Random #clothdiapers chat win), 8 Blueberry OS pockets in white, an Incredibum in Sunshine, and a BabyKicks hemp prefold (bought with the giftcard I won to Lovely Eco Chic). I also forgot to take a picture of my Zookies OS cover in Lime Turtles, which I love!
I also have a whole newborn stash of prefolds and x-small covers that I’m loaning to Jeniffer for her new little one!
Total diapers in use, counting pockets, AIO’s, AI2′s, prefolds, and fitteds? 51! That doesn’t count about 30 flats that I also have.
Total wins? 4 diaper wins, 2 bought with gift card win.
My stash makes me really happy and thankful! That said, I know it is completely possible to cloth diaper full time with a lot less than what I have right now. I can go three or more days without washing and not worry about running out of diapers, which is a blessing and a curse!
If money were no object, I would have a slightly different stash. More monkey prints, more Freetimes, more Applecheeks, and I would give away some of the diapers that aren’t my personal favorites.
Do you love your stash? What would you change about? How many diapers do you have in rotation?
