Question wool rotation

I currently have 2 loveybums wool crepe covers... I'm noticing a bit of compression leakage... even after I JUST lanolized them. I am alternating the two throughout the day. After using them for a day, should I let them dry for a day... or should overnight be enough time for them to be dry enough to use the next day? Or am I doing it all wrong??

Re: wool rotation

When do you notice compression leakage?
I notice compression leakage when she is in her carseat.
I alternate covers during the day with no troubles. Sometimes leave the same woolie on her if it feels dry inside still.

Re: wool rotation

An actual LEAK or just a damp, cool feeling? They should do fine; they're even supposed to be fine at night, right? I'm getting some in the mail today, so I'll post later if I can remember. Basically, if you use them during the day, you should let them dry out enough between wears. I can usually rotate between two covers and be fine. Sometimes it helps to lay the freshly used one on top of a wipes warmer or on a drying rack to help it dry out, but over night should be PLENTY of time, too. I wouldn't use the other one until it was dry though. Dry to the touch is dry.

I'm having some issues with a jersey cover. Is yours brand new or new to you? I'm lanolizing mine for the third time to see if it does better. Once I did a conditioning treatment on a jersey wool cover to stretch it back out, and it lost all waterproofness, so I had to lanolize it a few times to get it going again. So that's the technique I'm currently using. Lanolize the crap out of it. LOL!

It's a damp cool feeling. I guess it's no big deal, but it bugs the heck out of me.
The covers are new to me. Maybe I'll try lanolizing again. Let me know how yours are.

Re: wool rotation

Damp is pretty normal if the diaper underneath is soaked. You may need a more absorbant diaper or doubler.

Re: wool rotation

Mine didn't come today, but yes, damp, cool is part of wool if the diaper is soaked. It does bug my dh, but I love the breathability in summer, especially now that it is already getting so hot. It beats a heat rash for sure!
