Re: CT Mamas!

Ahaha, I just went to Danbury Faire for the first time last weekend. I usually go to the mall in Milford (my fiance used to work at Yale New Haven hospital), but the Danbury one is so nice <3 It's a nice, scenic drive from where I am, too. Especially with the snow and the winding creek/stream that follows the road.

Thank you for the link. I haven't explored the site too indepth yet, so I'll need to check out the FSOT Which CD method do most people in this thread use? (Like I said before, prefold/covers were a disaster for me, which my fiance teases me about since I was so eager to use them)

No problem! I work at Gymboree at the Milford Mall.

We used bumgenius and fuzzi bunz when we cloth diapered. If/when we ttc we'll probably use fitteds and wool.

Re: CT Mamas!

I'm curious...with wool, is it 100%? I, personally, have a sensitivity to wool (like sweaters and such). Does the same happen when you use wool on babies? Ahaha, I knit, so (in theory) I could knit my own covers...

Re: CT Mamas!

Since I knit as well, usually covers for babies, I use 100% wool. There's SO many varieties, some that contain more or less dander, and some that is so soft, you'd never think it was wool at all. IMO, using wool on a baby wouldn't usually give you any issues. However, if you're honestly allergic, I might stay away from it.

If you did want to knit your own longies/shorties, covers, etc, 2 patterns I love are Sheepy Pants & Adorabubble.

Re: CT Mamas!

The wool looks so cute! Ahaha, I'm contemplating suffering through the knitting for that reason alone, LOL. Rashes? pfft that's what hydrocortizone (sp) is for

Re: CT Mamas!

exactly!!

Most people I know who do use wool, use it year round since it allows the skin to breathe as opposed to using covers like bumGenius or FBs (which has PUL = polyurethane laminate)

Re: CT Mamas!

What kind of care does wool have when it comes to diaper covers?

Re: CT Mamas!

Since I'm the worst at actually explaining things, here's a link on how to lanolize & care for your woollies.

http://littlefornow.com/pages/lanolin.php

It's not difficult, but is labor intensive. You don't need to wash or lanolize each time you change a fitted/prefold under wool either which makes it easier to use IMO.
