Re: Wool or not to wool?

How are you going to use it full time or just at night. We love sbish stuff, but lots of others have had good luck with disana and other brands.

Re: Wool or not to wool?

Florida here We use cotton fitteds and wool exclusively and love it! We have a few BGEs on hand for church and longer outings and I definitely notice a difference in DS skin when he wears them.

Re: Wool or not to wool?

We just got some longies from grateful buns on etsy and they're great! They look a little silly I'm pics and even in person, but once they're on baby they're super cute!

We also have kissaluvs wool lovers which are really nice, an ecoposh which are cute shorties but a little scratchy won't be buying the next size, disana perfect for overnight, and we just got a wcw longies but they are unfortunate bigger than I though and are just for night right now. Those are pricey but seem really durable.

Re: Wool or not to wool?

we use wool mostly at night, for breathability purposes, but am starting to get into it for daytime use, which is probably an opening of pandora's box with all the longie/shortie cuteness

Re: Wool or not to wool?

We use wool 100%. I can count on my hands the number of hours my kids have spent in PUL.

I started with wool because Katies Kisses said it was the best for babies and of course I wanted the best for my baby. Wool was the first cover I bought. I have actually never bought PUL except as a wet bag. I have been given some though. I just didn't really use them.

As wool is all I have any experience with I would be nervous about using PUL. I read so many posts about holes, cracking, and wicking. Too much for me to bother with. Wool for me is so much less hassle.

We're right on the Gulf of Texas and had to switch to wool because of DD's sensitive skin. She would get too hot in PUL and get heat rashes so I don't think wool will be too hot in Florida. We do shorties, skirties, and soakers while it's warm out.

I really like these two links for explaining wool:

I hope that helps!

Re: Wool or not to wool?

I think people pretty much covered it. wool is breathable and keeps cool in summer, warm in winter. It can double as a cover and used as clothes. we love wool(:

Re: Wool or not to wool?

I use wool at night and occasionally during the day. At night it's bullet proof and breathable! But i don't feel the love for fitteds and hate pinning or snappying flats on. So i padfold them. I also hate it when she poos and it gets all over the wool cover. Chelory covers are great for padfolds, but insanely expensive. Grovia covers are good though.
