Newborn diapers

I should probably explain why I'm not updating this blog.  We've run out of room for pictures and either need to pay to upgrade, get rid of some of the old pictures, or start a new blog.  I tried getting rid of some pictures in my Picasa account to free up room and accidentally got rid of some pictures on the blog, so I stopped.  Anyway, we'll decide what to do eventually and then I can start updating with pictures!

But these are cell phone pics, so I've got enough room!  I finished making newborn-sized diapers for this upcoming baby!  Only a month and a half left, so I'm starting to feel the urge to get everything completed.
 These are 6 covers, 4 bamboo prefolds, and 24 cloth wipes.  I also have a bunch of commercial and handmade inserts from other diapers that I can use inside these covers if we need more diapers.
 Here are 8 bamboo fitted diapers, and three fitteds I made a long time ago out of an old shirt and some knit fabric. 
 And these are AIO (All-in-one) diapers.  They are the simplest for diaper changes because they are most similar to disposables--off and on and no extra covers or anything.  I wanted to have plenty of these for going out of the house and for when Adam or our moms change diapers (he prefers AIOs, though he learned how to fold a mean flat diaper with Daniel!). I made them in some faster drying styles.  12 of these I made, the three on the left are commercial.
So with 11 fitteds, 15 AIOs, and 4 prefolds, that's 30 diaper changes.  Newborns pee and poop so much that I'll probably be washing every 2 days.  If I want to wash every 3 days I'll just use some of those inserts inside covers like I mentioned. I also have two flats. 

I'm a little worried about these diapers not fitting, but I picked some patterns that have good reviews from a lot of moms, and they are all adjustable so they should fit for a couple of months!  I do have a pack of newborn diapers for right after birth and in case the cloth ones are too big, and hopefully that's enough.

You'll have to tell me how this goes once she's here. I'm in that stage where I'm not ready to have another baby yet, but all these little details seem highly interesting and worth thinking about. :)

And you picked super cute fabric, by the way! I love cute baby diapers!
