I’m intrigued by wool diaper covers and soakers, though I admit I’ve never tried them on my own baby. They are considerably more expensive than cotton or man-made material diapers, but they boast anti-bacterial and absorbent properties. Also, almost all the wool diapers I’ve seen use only the softest yarn, so they’re comfortable against your baby’s skin.
Here are a few wool options:
Baby Beehinds wool wrap diaper cover ($23.50)
Swaddlebees merino wool diaper cover ($29.95)
Have any of you tried any of these brands? What did you think? Worth the extra expense? Or, if you’re crafty, have you tried making your own wool soakers out of old sweaters? Let us know!
