Disana or WCW for night soaker?

Which would you choose for your nighttime wool, Disana or Wild Coconut Wear (aka Wild Child Woolies)? We have owned both before (own neither now), and cannot decide which to go with, if any? We currently use MEAF and Dancing Bears Fleece but are debating whether to add some wool into our rotation again.

TIA for sharing

All depends on your style. We like using WCW longies and shorties at night. Started out with Disana but I destashed after finding WCW. Both are great night covers. I just like being able to machine wash interlock and Disana require hand washing. I feel machine washing removes built up urine crystals better than hand washing.

I like both. They're equally good for nighttime. I do think disana is a little easier to get clean, since it's knit instead of interlock. It doesn't need as much of a scrub.

I would say Disana since that's what we are using now for nights. I prefer the wider cut and legs to fit over wider night diapers and keep warm. I prefer my WCW for under clothes in the day.

I would actually suggest Kissaluvs wool cover they are so soft and perfect for night.

That is true about Disanas covering the wider fitteds better, especially our Sandy's - forgot about that!

me too.

I'm not a fan of disana soakers b/c I had to felt them to be able to use at night then they fit funny. If I had to choose btwn the 2 I would go for WCW w/ a double layer wet zone. I have a RB soaker w/ a double layer wet zone that I've used as a night cover for DS when neither of our kissaluv covers were dry & it worked fine.

Disana. I have used both and prefer Disana. In a pinch, Babyology has worked well too, which I think style-wise is similar to Kissaluvs.

You are right, I recall I had to felt mine too. When I did, I remember it working really well though. I do think WCW are easier to care for. I am so glad I posted these question b/c you Mamas are reminding me of what I liked and did not liked about these two soakers. ARGH, I am still torn, LOL!
