Newborn cloth stash – what’s in yours?


I have used cloth nappies with baby boy since he was about 3 months old. We went straight to using birth to potty nappies in the day and fitted nappies at night with a birth to potty wrap. I therefore have no experience of using cloth nappies with a newborn. With baby number 2 on the way I have decided that I definitely want to use cloth nappies from birth this time but I don’t really know what I need.

I have started a little newborn stash already with a purchase of 3 tots bots teenyfits. They are tiny and so cute. I am fully aware though that these will probably last me all of 5 hours! I need more!! Never having used them from birth I am just at a loss as to what to buy. 

I am hoping to breastfeed (it didn’t go to plan last time so I am keeping an open mind but will be trying) and so need great containment along with looking cute. This will be a winter baby and so nappies that dry quickly are a must. Lastly I am on a serious budget so they need to be cheap, cheap cheap! Not too much to ask really.

I am therefore sending out a heartfelt plea to other cloth bumming parents out there – please give me any advice you have! What newborn nappies should I use? Where is the best place to buy from?

Advice welcome!
