I'm not familiar with Green Mountain Diaper's directions.... Wool is water resistant & only as a good as the diaper underneath. Was your little one super soaked? Maybe try adding another doubler to help prevent leakage?

hth!

I never had much luck with solid lano; I never could get it to emulsify well enough. I would get some liquid if I were you; it works wonders for heavy wetters' covers.

I also really like lanolin balm. You just rub in your hands and rub on the wool. Works great.
