Wool for potty training?

Ok So I am thinking about useing wool for potty training. Will this work? I am thinking I get paded undies and then use the wool as a cover.
Were can I get some skirts and capris and longies cheap? I will not have much to spend. I am thinking of doing it in the spring summer. Also they can wear them even after being trained so no lose really right?
sorry I don't use wool for diapers really so this is all new to me. I have 2 shorts underware type looking things and was going to use those but I would love to have a few that I could have her wear as an outfit like you all do.

Re: Wool for potty training?

I am also planning to use wool for PLing. DD is on the slim so it is difficult to find the right size pants for her plus wool is great for her ezcema. I enjoy knitting and I have accumulated a lot of yarn so I have to use them. I already bought some cotton training undies with removable added asorbency which I plan to use for wool.

Re: Wool for potty training?

Wool works great over training pants. We started EC w/ DD @ 8 mos. and used a lot of wool over thick trainers. It's a great way to make it easier to use the potty without the risk of accidents causing a big problem. And yes, you can still use them after your child is potty trained. DD is only wearing diapers during naps and at night now (I just ordered some regular underpants for her) and we love using wool so we're still doing it even though she goes in the potty fine and is not needing it for the wetness protection. It is so soft and warm and so dang cute too.

I would also say, if you're not used to wool, the easiest way to go as far as lanolin goes is to get some spray lanolin. It is WAY simpler to use than traditional methods of lanolizing.

The most economical way to get woolies is to make them yourself or have a friend or family member make some for you. If you have basic sewing skills it's easy to make recycled wool longies/soakers/skirties/wraps using thrift store wool sweaters.

If you don't sew/knit/crochet or know anyone who does then there are some inexpensive woolies available online. Here are some etsy shops that sell inexpensive woolies:

Re: Wool for potty training?

I use trainers & wool for my son and I love it! He is almost 2 and isn't yet using the potty, although he does sit on it. The thing I love about the trainers is that he can stand up for changes so he is more cooperative. He even pulled on his trainers himself yesterday.

we use wool (and fleece on occasion) over trainers since my girls couldnt use PUL. it worked great. i made ours(interlock) or had my sis knit them, but if i didnt sew i would have invested in some recycled shorts and such
