Baby Bear Diapers/Night time wool ???
Okay, I'm ready to take the plunge into wool.
What kinds are best for night use without sacrificing softness??
What is BFL???
Would you try a soaker or shorts for summer??
I'm open to other WAHM's also, for suggestions, or spam!!!!!
thanks, Jerri

Re: Baby Bear Diapers/Night time wool ???
I'm by far no expert as I just recently started using wool (again -I used it only a few times when DS was a NB and then gave up).
As far as I know the Aristocrat covers are really a great wool cover and yet soft (that's what we used when DS was a NB and it worked great!).

Now that DS is older I love my soakers I got from Woolybottoms (she's a new DS mama here aswell) who's got a store online aswell as many auctions on ebay all the time. Shannon, the wahm, always mentions if the cover would be suitable for night time or better only for day time. I've got some light weight aswell as felted (for night time) ones and have to say both work great! (I only used the felted ones so far over night)

As to your ? re soaker vs shorts, I like both. :D I think I'd use shorties more for when we go somewhere and even coverless or soakers at home.

BFL? No idea what that means! LOL

HTH a bit?

I 2nd the Aristocrat covers for night time use, I use them on my supersoaker boys and have never had a leak yet, and they're really soft as well...very comfy for baby :)
I have lots of daytime soakers and some more soakers on the way from Heavenly Huggers, but not sure if she's doing customs right now and I know she's not stocked anything recently, but is supposed to be stocking sometime in the next 3-4 weeks...Shayla is the Mama's name and she does really awesome work!

bfl = blue faced leicester (a kind of sheep) - this wool is generally thought of as a really nice, super-soft wool for soakers, etc. from what i hear from real wool experts (like easterbun/sarah), there are a lot of grades of quality of bfl

i like to use shorts in the summer personally. my dd is 19 months though and when she was younger i was more inclined towards soakers/covers.
