Best Wool for NBs

Im looking to get another wool cover for my newbie, due in July. Never got into wool woth my son, but I hear so many good things!

I have a Kissa's Wool Lover Cover, but it looks like it may be a bit big for a newbie...

What kind of wool cover (s) should I get? Brands and styles that worked for you would be helpful and much appreciated!!

Re: Best Wool for NBs

I loved nb/sm lovebums pull ons for DS it's tiny, but fit great over his nb fitteds. I folded the waist band down until he lost his cord & it stayed down nicely.

also loved nb Luxe. but she's not making them anymore but you can often find them used

I had a few wrap covers & didn't really like them.

I also did interlock longies & folded the waist down under his cord

The new Growing Baby Green shop has a wool cover that has a snap down for the cord. I just ordered two. I also have a couple of knitted LTK ribby wraps which can be folded down for the cord and the rest of my stash are pull on soakers where the waist can be folded down.

I didn't use wool when DS was a newborn, but sbish underwoolies look amazing and they fit from 5-18lbs!

I'm not sure when my order will come in, but I can definitely let you know what I think of the covers when it does!

Re: Best Wool for NBs

I used Loveybums Pull On Soaker in size medium, Kissa's, custom shorties from Wolfie's Woolies and Disana. All fit my 8 pounder. I didn't use newborn fitteds, though - I used size smalls and all fit realy well.

I also have a wrap style cover from Loveybums but haven't used it. I put it on once but like the soakers so much better I switched before leaving the changing table.

Loveybums is my fav - they are great.
