Grrrr... should I sell my luxe?

We got a s/m luxe pull-on at the stocking two weeks ago and I can't decide if I should keep it.

Pros
1. it's pretty
2. it's sooo soft
3. it will fit him for a long time
4. it's super trim
5. did i mention how pretty it is?

Cons
1. we need the $, and if i sell now while its still almost brand new i'll recoup the most
2. it ALWAYS feels damp after he pees

I think the dampness is for two reasons - first, I am still using the 1-pee-wonder kissaluv 0's. I know I need to upgrade, but as long as they fit I can't justify the cost to myself. Second, I don't think I have the best wool-care products. Um, I actually use baby shampoo and lansinoh. So what I'm saying is, if I keep it I guess I need to invest in more expensive fitteds and buy more wool care products, when I probably shouldn't keep it in the first place for $ reasons. Sigh.

Should I search out a reasonably priced wool wash and scour the FSOT for better fitteds and see if it improves for us, or just throw in the towel? What would you do?

Re: Grrrr... should I sell my luxe?

hmmmmm what other types of covers do you have??? could you justify to yourself selling the luxe and getting a cheaper wool pull on if you're just really liking the idea of it????


other than that if you don't NEED it really, and NEED the $$ i would sell *sigh* i know it sucks!!!!!!!!

Have you tried using a doubler with the kissaluvs?

I do the baby wash and lansinoh thing and it works great for us... maybe try using more lanolin? You can use cloth wipes as doublers if you just need a little more asorbancy...

if its really frustrating you bc its damp...id say sell....ive used the baby wash/lansinoh before and not had any problems....you can always sell luxe covers, but its pretty hard to snag another,kwim? so if you dont think it will work sell-but maybe try a different dipe or doubler first...i have some KL doublers i can mail you if you want them

Re: Grrrr... should I sell my luxe?

I would find a more absorbant diaper first and see if that helps. Have you tried a pf? I love using my pf's under our Luxe!

As far as wool care - what you are doing now is totally fine! I invested in other products for the scent factor and ease of use (spray lanolin). I love washing wool - I call it it wool therapy! LOL

I am addicted to Luxe wool though...so I would keep it until I knew it wouldn't work with other options! But, if you do decide to sell - it will be gone FAST!

Good Luck!

I would try what the other posters suggested before selling it, because they are VERY hard to come by (slots I mean!)
