Newborn to Baby EC Cloth Diapering Stash Inventory and Wish List

I know, I know.  It is called Diaper-Free baby (or EC).  But in this modern world, we have flooring and laps to protect, plus cool weather.  PLUS-- I really like to make baby stuff.... 

So here is my upcoming baby-on-the-way list.  I have inventoried what my son used and we kept, plus some items I have made in the last few months.  I am posting in hopes someone may find it useful.  We are expecting another boy.

As you look at this, keep in mind that we do all of our own laundry.  We also focused on poops for our son for the first few months and let the pees come and go.  Then, at 3 months, when he was reliably pooping in the potty, we started paying attention to the pees.  We are hoping to go the same route this time, although we will start earlier (we started around 2 weeks with our son, although we were cueing before then).  We started nighttime EC at 3 months (notice a correlation?) and may start earlier this time.  We have so many carriers because we used them all the time and they get wet.

Some things on this list are just here because we have them.  Others are here because we found them useful.  Those items that were most useful are generally in 4's and 6's and 12's, since I have rounded out how many we have.  You will also notice that we started to rely a lot on nonwaterproof training pants as we progressed.  In general, all items snap since we found velcro to make an annoying noise.  We also have preferred fleece to PUL as a semi-waterproof material, since it slows down the flow of pee but allows air to flow nicely.  I have also included some clothing items you may not have on hand. I also ended up cutting the bottoms off our onesies and hemming them into t-shirts so the bottoms wouldn't be in the way.
