Cloth nappy users: does this sound right?

Going to use reusable so with first baby due in autumn. Have been lucky enough to get fantastic pre-loved nappies and inserts off ebay for am initial outlay of £250 - have about 40 all in one birth to potties (wonderoo, tots, motherease, ebay) and about 15 smaller sized newborns (bambino mio etc) some wraps, and some new nightime bamboo nappies (little lambs, bamboozles) and a glut of fleece, bamboo and zorb boosters. All for a total of £275 off ebay of which council gave a £25 cash back.

Have also done loads of reading threads on here and nappy forums. Can you wise ones tell me, if,mjust as a mental prep this plan below sounds about right? Obviously we take it as it comes. So here goes -

NEWBORN STAGE (Uptil 10 lbs or 4.5 kgs)

Newborn Daytime -

Bambino Mio Newborn nappies with a fleece liner inside with bambino mio newborn wrap
Indian newborn cloth nappies coming from home with fleece liner inside a Motherease xsmall wrap

Newborn Nightime -

Little Lamb Bamboo nappy with fleece, bamboo and zorb inside with wrap (happy to remove zorb if bamboo proves to be enough)

AFTER 10/12 Lbs or 4.5-5 kgs

Day times -

Use any of the "all in one birth to potty" nappies we have (tots bots, wonderoo, motherease, ebay)with fleece liner inside and whatever liner it comes with anyway

Nighttime -

Little lamb bamboo nappy and Tots Bots Bamboozles with fleece, bamboo and zorb inside, with wrap

Does this sound about right? If so, will be assembling nappies on Sunday and putting in DAY and NIGHT sacks for DH to wrap his head around. He is also very excited about this as he apparently was raised in terry cloths and safety pins and had one of the terry cloths as a safety blanket called Dave when he was potty trained

How are you using the mio nappies? If they are pad folded then the containment- especially for newborn poo. I would always recommend folding the in an angel or jelly roll fold as described here and securing with a nappy nippa. Mio nappy covers also gape a bit if your baby has skinny legs do be prepared for that.

Otherwise sounds great!

* sorry - containment for newborn poo is rubbish that should have said.

Sounds good to me! For the night nappies, you will probably find it easier to put the extra bamboo layer between the nappy and the wrap as it's less bulky that way.
