Wool recommendations, please read fully before recommendations!

I need one more wool soaker for DD for night time. We currently have 1 organic Sustainablebabyish wool soaker, which is getting used every 3rd night and while it works wonderfully, I'd like to be able to wash/lanolize it more often and lessen the wear/tear that it's receiving. In addition, we're trying to transition over to fitted + wool entirely at night.

Other wool items that we have are a regular Sustainablebabyish wool soaker and Sustainablebabyish wool karate pants.

I am obviously a big fan of Sustainablebabyish products. Unfortunately, it's hard as heck to get ahold of anything right now, because she's moving and since I already have a custom order in for fitteds, I do not want to add to it... and I want this soaker within the next week or so, so adding to the order isn't going to work anyway.

I am looking for a night worthy wool soaker. My daughter is a heavy wetter, so the double layer works perfectly.

I am looking for:

- a soaker with 2 or more layers.
- READILY available and easily accessible!
- color isn't really all that important, but girly is preferable.
- in a size medium.

Is there anything like this? Oh, and I'd love to support a WAHM, if possible.

TY!

I'd try the Royal Buns mama. She's in WAHM wares and on HC. Javamama just posted some pics of 3 that she got embroidered and I noticed they had a double layer.

I also really love my Woollybottoms for overnight. If you read the descriptions Shannon will note what kind of wool they are made from and if they are good for a heavy wetter and/or overnight. Her interlock is super duper thick, and really soft. I bet she will start stocking soakers soon since people are getting ready for summer. I know those aren't in stock at the moment, but it's another option to consider. (She stocks Thursday.)

These hot pink WB's are bulletproof for us!! (Though I know you weren't asking for recycled! )


I also love Graceful Baby designs. Awesome WAHM, but if she hasn't already had her baby she will be any time.

ETA... The Kiwi Pie Peels are also in stock at Mt.Diaper Store!

We use an aristocrats soaker for overnight, and it works great. Its not WAHM, but its readily available and super thick.

For some reason, they make my eyes itch. I had one for DD and it was super thick and worked well, but it made me itch really, really bad.

When I say double layer -- I mean, the entire soaker is comprised of 2 layers or more, not just the wet zone.

My bulletproof overnight wool is a double layer interlock Loveybums wrap. Easy to get too.

Do you find that they run true to size? My daughter is just under 19 lbs. and I am thinking of ordering a large.
