I use Disana wool covers. They aren't very cute (imo), but they work really well for us and I was able to get them brand new for about $15 a pair.

Quoting Ecstasy:" Can some wool using mamas point me in the right direction please.. im feeling a bit out of my depths ... [snip!] ... a light wetter over night.. they have wool interlock suitable for heavy wetters but they retail for $45 + postage here! :shock:"


wool is super expensive if its good quality but oh, is it worth every penny, in my opinion. whatcha want to know.



oh, and in answer to your other question, it can get scratchy at first, but your wool, even when it needs to be lanolized, still has softness, to an extent. but the lanolin is the naturally occuring oil, so if its running low, it can be alittle scratchier in texture.

Quoting DZ&JZ:" Well I didn't know it was in China until after I got the email. And I would expect, since they offer ... [snip!] ... for $84) to try out. I heard pockets were good, and I liked that it was one size type, with snaps. I really am a new. Sorry."

Hey I just wanted to mention. They were just celebrating the Chinese New Year I believe. So if you put the order in 2 weeks ago, I think you may have hit the holiday and they shut down for that. I'm pretty sure they went back to work the 18th or 19th. So probably why there might be a delay as well. I've ordered from there and I think it took 2 weeks or so to get my stuff.

Im just not sure of all the different knits/textures and their suitability for heavy wetters.



I've seen some cute WAHM ones (hand knitted) and then other interlock ones..



Im scared that the WAHM ones wont hold up over night after reading about some being for 'light wetters' over night.



Can you recommend a certain type that'd hold up well?

None of the wool I've had has been scratchy, whether it needs to be lanolized or not.

You can get lanolin at Walmart or any place like that. You know that Lansinoh stuff(or whatever it's called), it comes in a purple tube and you rub it on your nipples if they're sore from nursing? That's the stuff. I use that one since I have a shitload of it left over from the first few weeks.

I'm having a minor anxiety attack... I sent my precious Boobie juice out yesterday... I researched and decided to pack without dry ice... It's a short distance , it's winter and I over nighted it. I keep checking the tracking on it, it got to the lady's post office at 613am and she still hasn't picked it up... Ahhh! It's just sitting in the heated post office melting!
