Nite time wool diaper ?

I have used wool during the day and both kids can wet thru the wool cover so I know it won't work at night. I am using re-uz' ms for my dd at night but they are getting too small and she is starting to wet right out of them! I use honeyboys for my ds but only have 2 of those! Any suggestions so that I can use wool for night w/out it wicking?? I have lanolized too but still leaks!

I've heard from alot of other mamas that aristocrats are awesome for nighttime! I haven't tried one yet but i do have one on the way.

HTH!

You need thick wool covers! (Aristocrats, Loveybums wool interlock, or any 2 layered wool interlock, Wild Oats, most merino wool.)

What wool covers are you using? Also, are your diapers absorbant enough? Sounds like you might need some super soaker doublers or wool doublers to maximize time between changes.

Hang in there, mama! It takes some trial and error to find what works best for each baby!

Re: Nite time wool diaper ?

I am crocheting my own soakers with fisherman's wool and with cascade 220. Both I have had the wicking problem. I am relanolizing them tonight to see if that will help. Also I will be looking to get some doublers.

Thanks.

Re: Nite time wool diaper ?

I would think about adding absorbency to your diaper. Do you have anything that works at night?

I was using re-uz'm s for my dd but she is out growing them and I am using honeyboys for my ds but only have 2! So I wanted to use my wool but it barely holds them during the day if we go too long.

I have a Diansa double knit and that sucker never leaks. Only thing is they eitehr run large or they send me the wrong size becasue I bought a meduim and it still kind of big on my 18 month old.

Re: Nite time wool diaper ?

I havent had a single leak with my Aristocrat....I gotta get a couple more! Plus, it's the only one so far that dd looks really comfortable in.

I have a pretty felted Disana cover that was HUGE ....but I over felted it and now it's too small. It's the aplix wrap Disana...I'll use it on the newborn.

Re: Nite time wool diaper ?

I am making my own cuz it is too expensive to buy the aristacrats for both of my kiddos!! Plus I am trying to get my business off the ground with crocheted soakers/longies so I have to keep trying to perfect them!!

Re: Nite time wool diaper ?

My dd is a super soaker, she can actually soak a M/L very baby simply night untill it is dripping . The only wool the has never leaked for her over night is tiny bird organics, she has the shorts and the pants. http://www.tinybirdsorganics.com/organicwool/TinyBirdsdiapercovers.html I have tried disana, lana, loveybums and they all leak at night.
