    Starting from Scratch: My Ideal Cloth Diaper Stash

    My Ideal Cloth Diaper Stash

    How would your ideal cloth diaper stash look if you could start over again with an unlimited budget? As part of the cloth diapering again series, the ladies at Padded Tush Stats asked about ideal stashes without the limitations of a budget. Although I am largely happy with my current stash, which consists of all the Best Bottom shells and a handful of other covers as well as Best Bottom inserts, I would make a few different purchases if I could start all over.

    Note that I would still probably buy all of the Best Bottom covers because I am a Best Bottom addict collector. However, I do have fourteen that are my favorites over the rest. Nevertheless, I do own and love all of the Best Bottom shells. I would also continue to use a combination of disposable wipes that I wash and reuse as liners and regular old washcloths moistened with water instead of switching to cloth wipes.

    Best Bottom Inserts

    During the day, I use Best Bottom Stay Dry inserts in all of my diaper covers.

    20 Best Bottom Stay Dry Inserts (Small) – $3.75 each – $75
    20 Best Bottom Stay Dry Inserts (Medium) – $3.75 each – $75

    What is the grand total of my ideal stash? If I were to start over with cloth diapers with an unlimited budget, I would spend a total of $1,020.19. Definitely pricey but still less than the cost of disposable diapers from birth through potty training.

    What would your ideal, budget-less cloth diaper stash look like? How much would you spend?
