Helena at Thanks Mama graciously sent me a size large Sustainablebabyish/Sloomb knit wool cover in Mocha for review.
This is what I received:
I absolutely LOVE this cover! It is so soft and works really well! I use this cover on my 3 yo son at night. Many of you remember me blogging about how he woke up wet every morning (usually at about 5 am) because he had peed through his diaper. I had tried everything, pockets stuffed to the max, AIO's, even disposables created for night time use... nothing worked! That is when I decided to enter into a relationship with fitted diapers and wool! I am so glad that I did. I will never go back. I hope to eventually have enough in my stash to be able to use fitted diapers and wool covers 24-7! Wouldn't that be awesome! Since my son is *almost* potty-trained, I am still using fitted diapers and wool covers at night. I reach for this diaper cover most nights. It is just so soft and so easy to slide on! Even after washing it, and lanolizing it, it did not lose its softness! It truly is an amazing wool cover!
