wool absorbency issues
 
OK... I have been battling this issue for awhile and had some advice from some of you to change my fitteds...which I have done. So I have a woolbottoms cover and a couple sbish longies that I have been using. The WB cover is amazing and holds all night with a sbish snapless. The Sbish longies are useless! I know I have to be doing something wrong. I have lanolized 2 of them with a TBSP of lanolin, isn't that enough? I am getting so frustrated! Help?

Are you on the Sbish chat page on FB? They have many tutorials there.

I would use more lanolin. I use enough to get everything sticky and with the sbish knits it takes a lot because they are double layered.

you can also try to increase the absorbancy of the fitted underneath the woolies, by adding a doubler or two :)

Some woolies are a bit thinner than the other so more lanolling and more absorbent diaper will help.

I just have to say, I have a sbish underwoolies and no matter how much I lanolize I have had leaking right through the wool. Never had that happen with other wool. I change right away and my fitteds are usually plenty absorbent.

More diaper I'd say

I prefer interlock, for daytime because it's so durable for playing and for nighttime because it's denser than knits.

I'm confused by this statement. Isn't sbish considered lnterlock?

I am using mostly sbish snapless rights now (i have 6 PFs on the way), shouldn't thatbe enough with both inserts? even a slightly damp dipe is wicking through. I have a disana that is doing the same so I am trying to lanolize again. I hope i can get this right. Wool is the only ting that doesn't make ds rashy :banghead:

They have both interlock & knit. Knit is the most available.

Also, you should make sure you lano the wool inside out several times if it is going to be a night cover.
