Re: Wool recommendations

My first wool cover (and what I'd strongly recommend for a wool newbie!) is a Loveybums interlock wrap/cover. I used those overnight for a long time (until DS outgrew it and I learned to knit), and they are awesome, and super easy to use.

As for wool care, I love Sudz N Dudz bars for cleansing stains, etc., and Naturally Luxe liquid WOW for simple lanolizing/washing.

Re: Wool recommendations

I was looking more into Aristocrats and the prices vary so much by site! I've found them for as low as $20 (with $9 shipping... yikes!) and as high as $33. Where's the most reasonable place to buy them at? I refuse to pay $9 for shipping... that's insane.

I live in U.S. in the state of Michigan.

You can find recycled longies on HC. Here are few stores I've purchased from. You can also do a search on HC for recycled wool and lots of stuff comes up. Good luck!

I would say they wouldn't be your best overnight solution. They are lighterweight which is part of what it makes it so great for younger babies. Llamajamas run big but are completely nightworthy but they may run too big so you'ld have to check out the size charts.

Keep in mind that whatever brand you buy you will have to lanolize every month or so (depending how much your baby uses them, how often you wash them, etc.) I promise it is very easy to do! You're better off to just start off with the liquid lanolin and the wool wash with lanolin added. I started off with the solid lanolin and it can be tough to not get spots using the solid lanolin.

Wool is so fun and so addicting, you will love it!

If you find them w/ staining, you can do what I did and dye them using Kool Aid. It's really easy and the colors are vibrant. Here's a link to a tutorial--

Welcome to wool! Be prepared to become obsessed!

Re: Wool recommendations

Hi, just following this thread b/c we are starting with wool at night, too. And I definitely have a SUPER heavy wetter.

So, thus far I gather the following are night-worthy for a heavy wetter:
Aristocrats
Llamajamas
Disana

Did I miss any?

What about Luxe? What about Babyology?

Also, my other question (sorry OP I hope you don't mind if I add to this, not meaning to hijack)...

Which are SOFTEST? My baby has really sensitive skin, too, so it can't be at all scratchy.

Thanks!
