Question Aristocrat Wool Cover ????

I am about to by an Aristocrat and have questions first.
1. How is the fit? My dd is 21 lbs, but she has a small butt and is small all over. Should I order small?
2. Are they worth it?

Re: Aristocrat Wool Cover ????

The size kind of depends on what you plan on putting in there DS2 is 20 lbs or so (really long and slim) and he can fit in a small but only if he were in something trim, no way could he use one now with a prefold. I would honestly size up, if anything your daughter would likely be almost too big for a small.

I totally think they are worth it esp if you have a heavy wetter, Aristocrats have a thicker middle too. I'm pretty partial to machine knit soakers though, just because they are so tight. You can dye a pretty color with Koolaid too.

Yes, size up. My son is 20lbs and 7 months old. He can wear the small with a prefold fitted diaper on but needs a large for night time. The small really was small when we got it but they do stretch out as you use them. Our larges are kind of big but did not seem that big when we got them. You know another option to consider is that a lot of people like babyology soakers as well. If you needed a choice, lol.

Re: Aristocrat Wool Cover ????

We used large from about 18m on...
They are awesome for overnight! And they really hold up to a lot of use.
