Just bought my first wool cover...what do I use it with?

We're venturing out of pocket dipe territory (FB) and just bought our first wool cover...a Loveybums with applique. (It was too cute, couldn't resist and a great price!) But, I have NO idea what to use under it. I'm thinking prefolds? maybe a fitted?
Help me please, the easier it is to use...the better. That way DH will use it too. He's partial to FB's cuz they're EASY
Also, what kind of care do I need to take with the LB cover? How often to re-lanolize, wash, etc.
Basically just tell me how to use this darn thing before I get it and ruin it
Thanks,
SAM

welcome to wool once you see how easy it is to use you are going to get of the pockets expect for a few of them

i use pfs and fitteds under all my wool...some moms even use it OVER the FBs not sure why but to me it seems silly.

hand wash in warm to cool water with either wool wash or a wool bar when it smells like pee or when poop gets on it and i lanolize after EVERY wash some do it when the cover starts leaking or feels really damp...

air dry DO NOT put in the dryer or else you wont have a cover that fits!!

I like prefolds
I fitteds
prefolds are trimmer
welcome to the world of wool !!!!!

if your breastfed and have the lanolin cream you can use that with a little baby shampoo to lanolize and wash it! Super cheap and easy if you have it on hand

I'm glad you posted this message because I just ordered my first wool cover, and I think I'll get it today. The wool wash I ordered to go with it has lanolin in it. So I think it washes and lanolizes all in one. Is this true?

From what I understand you still have to lanolize every once in a while. Most of the soap does have lanolin I think. (I'm new at wool too, currently knitting a soaker.)

We've got fitteds I can use, but I have 6 ipfs and snappi coming.
