Wool nighttime solutions

I guess I'm still confused. I would love insight and spam is more than welcome!

1. Are interlock or knit wool item more bulletproof? Is there another form of wool that may be more bulletproof...if so, what?

2. My DD does not like the leg casings (the bands like on babylegs or babyology soakers) - so I have to go with shorties, covers or longies. Considering it's summer, if I were to go with a cover...I need it to not come off too easily by an eager little girl who LOVES to be "nakey" - what do you recommend.

3. I need recommendations, comments, suggestions on shorties for nighttime wear.

4. Nighttime fitted diaper or under wool diaper solutions are also wanted.

Thanks for helping me out. I am desperately wanting to cloth at night again!

DH puts my DD to bed 1/4 of the time, and it never fails that a PUL pocket is put on in a way that will wick...hence, my trying out wool.

Thanks Mama's!

Re: Wool nighttime solutions

I like crochet, but I make mine REALLY tight (not nearly as 'hole-y' as what I usually see in online pics)

Re: Wool nighttime solutions

We use wool soakers at night, but I don't have experience with shorties. I just wanted to say that we are using VBSNs for twelve hours at night under wool with no leaks! The diaper is super heavy in the morning but just feels damp to the touch, and his skin stays pretty dry because of the fleece lining. I'm very happy with them

Re: Wool nighttime solutions

I like knit looks better, but think the crochet does better as far as a cover...

I did use a knitted pair of shorties last night that dyed my diaper but I think it was because the colorway bled some more...needs to be washed a few more times....and I don't know if it just needed to be lanolized better or what, but it felt damp to me, although nothing else was wet, whereas my crocheted shorties didn't when I used them..

As far as nakey time, LOL, most shorties I've seen (including mine) have drawstrings, and I'm sure you could knot it somehow to keep it on, although then you run the risk of baby knotting it too tight to get off without cutting...

Hmmm...maybe someone else has a sugguestion for that one?

Re: Wool nighttime solutions

Thank you so far for the suggestions.

I have a VBSN but I think I need a Medium Long or even a Large...the rise is tipping in the front. Perhaps I'll get a photo up and see what others think about the sizing of it.

Now...anyone have some links for crochet soakers?

Thanks again!

Re: Wool nighttime solutions

If you go knit or crochet, try to get something with thicker yarn. Ask about the weight, as a heavier soaker will hold more moisture. If you go with interlock, get something felted or double layered.

Snap covers are difficult for DC to take off, especially side snaps.

I like hemp fitteds for overnight because they have a natural feel and they absorb a lot.
