I love them all and never have "run out" of covers even with sickness poo..nuff said. She's a toddler now so I always use Disana at night; totally bulletproof!
I am glad to hear that! I was thinking about getting 2 disana pull ons for my DS because right now, we have one soaker that kind of fits him.

I so love disana because they are an amazing value (affordable, high quality, super flexible and bulletproof!). Disana was my first wool purchase years ago, at the recommendation of the GMD site. I like to buy from abbyslane.com because she has free shipping, great selection and the best prices (last time I bought, anyway!).

I was looking at those! Glad to know they are all that they say they should be.

I have some wool. Not as much as I would like. I think I might have a few covers still too that are in decent shape (PUL covers). I really need to start digging out this stuff. Maybe this weekend. The bad part of having children nearly 5 years apart is you forget what you have. I have the room in DS closet to take things out, so I guess it is time.

Re: Wooly mamas??

Over the yrs I have bought and sold various longies/shorties/soakers, but I never have known what they were or by who. Right now I have some girly soakers, great for summer bc they are so thin. I have some upcycled wool too. I bought a bunch of wool sweaters that I still need to convert as well. I won't be buying anything for this baby. I have some wool yarn that I got off here a while ago and need to knit up.

what are your fav brands?? i love the way the sbish/wild coconut wear ones feel... but BFF little guy wears them all the time and they are so super soft.
This is why I'm thinking a soaker sack ! My smallest lo was 6.4lb and my biggest was 7.14lbs. I figure I can fit any nb into a sack and call it good. Plus if I knit it I can frog it later and reuse the yarn.

Re: Wooly mamas??

I am kicking the idea around but not real sure if I am or not. DH does not like the idea but we will see. I thought if I found some that arre cheap to try I might.

Good info! I'll contribute: all of mine (7 lb range) last more like 4-6 weeks

Re: Wooly mamas??

I couldn't believe how small my 10lb baby actually was. I knew he'd be big (8-9lb) and we didn't buy any NB jammies or anything and the 0-3s were flopping off of his feet and huge.
