Wool covers for overnight (heavy wetter)?

I need a new nighttime cover solution for my DS. He's started leaking out of all his BSWW covers overnight up by the waist (i think pee is leaking through the stitching of the laundry tabs).

I'm wondering if wool would be a better option for him, plus i like how it breathes since he'll be in the diaper for 8-12 hours.

If you use wool overnight what cover do you use and does it work well? I'm currently really interested in the Celtic Wool covers and Lovelybums wool interlock covers based on the DP reviews, and i love the idea of gussets on the CW.

Well of course I am a bit partial to my Woollybottoms . They work super for our heavy overnight wetter. We have NEVER had a leak with them even after 12 hours of overnight mega wetting. I do have an Aristocrat and a Lana and they are great too. I don't reach too much for my wool jersey or interlock stuff as they just aren't thick enough for overnight and tend to be damp in the morning.

Re: Wool covers for overnight (heavy wetter)?

i like the lana and the disana that I snagged from the fsot
before though sometimes we used a 7th heaven or kiwi pie wool interlock with side snaps but I prefer not to have any closures at night
I guess its just because I think I wouldn't be as comfortable

We use an Aristocrat too. No leaks ever.

Re: Wool covers for overnight (heavy wetter)?

Wool & fitteds at night has solved a few problems for us. First, DD was beginning to have a reaction to being in PUL for more than 2 hours. Second, every now and then, DD would leak out of her pocket (even after several strippings) and she'd wake up crying about her wet bed. Third, I found that stuffing the pockets to the gills was too uncomfortable for my girl.

By switching to wool & fitteds, it's solved all of those problems. My DD is a little over 2 and needs water at night during these warmer months. Even with all the fluids, she doesn't leak out! I am using some knitted wool soakers, Stacinator day/night soakers, and a recycled soaker. ALL have been great for us. She no longer has an irritated crotch area in the morning. Plus, we found some really good nighttime fitteds that are very trim but absorbant.

We still use pockets, but only during naps or long car-rides (again, no more than 2-3 hours).

I'm currently trying to decide between the Lana and the disana. Which one do you like better?

Re: Wool covers for overnight (heavy wetter)?

The past 2 nights i used a pocket diaper w/ woollybottoms shorties. No pul sensitivities here so it worked great. Yeah a weird combo but i wanted the stay dry effect of a pocket diaper.
I have a celtic wool cover and dd is on the last thight snap for it. Her and her chubby thighs It is fine but i don't reach for it.
