Wool and daycare.

OK... I think I want to start sending Lulu to daycare in her wool longies. Am I insane? Is that too mean to our wonderful DCP? I have hand-knit longies and Kushies and Mother Ease fitteds.

If you send wool to daycare, how do you do it? I have no clue!

I think it would depend on your DCP. When DS1 was in daycare, his first DCP made no attempt to keep him from messing up his clothes. He had a separate wardrobe of clothes for daycare only. The second DCP was much better with clothing and would take off the boys shirts if she was feeding them pasta and I didn't have to buy him a second wardrobe. So I guess it depends on how careful she is with clothing. Also I wouldn't send her in something that you would be devastated if it got ruined. But as long as she knows not to throw them in the wash with regular clothing I think it would be ok.

This. I would be very nervous about them getting ruined. You could always do fleece or some cheaper upcycled wool.

Re: Wool and daycare.

I don't wool. But I think you'd def want to talk with your provider first. Is it a center? how many different teachers does she have? If it's small and only a couple teachers that you could talk with maybe, if it's a large place with tons of teachers, and switching rooms, and random floater teachers or subs than not sure.

It would be tough for them to understand. I think. I agree with playing outside and whatnot my son comes back DIRTY. Our DC often washes clothes that get wet and dirty so they would have to fully understand that.

Would they change often enough that they would never feel like the wool is "wet" or dirty... I could see our place having a hard time accepting reusing something -- they aren't allowed (state rules) to reuse covers or anything.

I think it's not impossible if your place is small but you would really need to sit down and talk with them... more than just 5 min before class starts...

Re: Wool and daycare.

I take care of my friends kids at my home now. Theyre both PTd but if they werent Id do wool...
My only thing is, that we spend lots of time outside and I do not make kids stay super clean while rollin/runnin in the grass or playing with sand/dirt....so it would need to be play woolies.

My ds doesn't go to daycare yet because dh stays home with him, but eventually he will have to go. I've been wondering this myself! I'm honestly planning on picking daycare based on this! Lol. I think as long as they have an understanding of it, you should be fine.

We never had a problem using wool at dc but I'd think of potential problems ahead of time and make sure you address them.

Re: Wool and daycare.

DS1 goes to preschool 2 days a week and though he is PL he still wears his woolies often. But I'm really laissez faire about our wool - his woolies are all sturdy toddler bases and I have always found that wool cleans much better than most other things actually. they've never had any problem with them, they just comment about how cute his pants are.
