    Default So, do people like their aristocrat wool covers??

    Katarina woke up this morning with a blister on her leg from her Thirsties diaper cover!! It has left red marks before, but nothing this bad The motherease dig in over night, work okay in the day.

    So, from asking, I'm getting the sense that I need a different wool cover for night.... I have lovely Loveybums one, but man, if you nurse a bunch in the night and never wake up for a diaper change your diaper gets seriously wet!

    Anyone here use aristocrat covers? People seem to think they're probably the best at night, I'm skeptical after my other failed attempts with wool covers (oh, fleece too... that resulted in a wet bed....)

    Mine worked like a charm as far as keeping her dry after 10 hours but it stunk to high heaven every morning despite doing everything I was told to do. The smell seeped into everything and I stopped using it after a few weeks. Lots of other Mom's have had great success with them. Maybe my kid just has stinky pee???

    Hmm, we're a bit stinky in the morning here without wool

    Maybe I'll look for a used one to try!

    I use Stacinator wool covers and they hold back the pee for me. I just over lanolized (accidently) and I have not had a night time leak yet.

    Wool covers are only as good as the diapers. At night I use a HH Sherpa with a liner.

    Ooh, over lanolizing mgiht be an idea to help.

    Yeah, I have trouble getting a diaper absorbent enough to work with anything wool or fleece. The Baby Beehinds are soaked by morning. Pockets with a cottonbabies one-size insert, hemp insert and an extra doubler are completely soaked, Very baby Basic night, most things I've tried are completely soaked!!

    last night I found a combination that wasn't dripping wet, so tonight I tried with an extra doubler, the loveybums wool cover and fleece pants over top... wish me luck!
