Re: LO screaming for me to take off wool :(

My toddler is the same. She's been in wool full time since hours after birth, but around 18 months she suddenly decided she HATES wearing knitting things. She would scream, yank on it, and just generally throw a fit until I took it off. I was so sad because she had a gorgeous wool stash that cost close to a thousand dollars! LOL I sold the vast majority of her stash cheap so it would go fast and I could fund interlock wraps like LoveyBums. She tolerates them just fine, but even now she will not wear a knitted hat or cardigan. I think she's just putting her toddler foot down to test her boundaries and this is too expensive of a battle to fight her on.

I think that's the same with mine, putting her toddler foot down lol. After I destash my knits I want to restash with only a few Loveybums wraps. She's been letting me put on her interlock wool, but I only have a few pieces, and fleece is actually working out really well for her so I think I'm going to stick with that.

There is hope! When DS1 was 2 he decided he wasnt going to wear longies anymore. Now he is 3 and begs to wear them and hates to take them off. He calls them his toasty pants.

Fleece is a great option, too! My girl would wear her interlock as well, but she quickly outgrew her Ah May and Twee Baby so I sold that, too. I was also able to get wool wraps from Etsy WAHM shops like FreeBums and ArianasClothesline that are good quality and not as expensive as some of the factory-made ones.

Thanks for listing those shops! I will definitely check them out

I am venturing slowly back into PUL and she seems to not rash up in it anymore, but I only have one PUL diaper and she doesn't stay in it that long, so we will see how that goes.

Re: LO screaming for me to take off wool :(

Kids don't always do too well with change. My son throws a fit if DH and I aren't both in the room to read to him before bed, he does really well with a very strict routine because he's used to it. Do you think it might have something to do with the transition of you going to work and her going to daycare? Just a thought.
