#NBFluffNStuff Babee Greens wool cover review and $20 GC #GIVEAWAY {Diaper Daisy} US only

I'm so excited to share this next review with you! This review comes to you courtesy of Diaper Daisy.
Let's talk wool! I am a HUGE fan of wool and natural fibers. In fact, fitted diapers and wool covers were the only thing that worked for me with my two boys for nap time and night time leak proof protection! I swear by the combination. But for a newborn??? I mean, you'd expect to be up every 2 hours feeding, changing and praying the little baby went back to sleep... right?
And, with all the frequent diaper changes (every 2 hours) how could a fitted diaper and wool come in handy if it's meant for 'heavy wetters?'
Well! I used my Babykicks hemp fitted diaper on my baby girl, paired with this beautiful Babee Greens wool cover that I was sent to review from Diaper Daisy!!

 Inside (notice it's a side snapping diaper, something I am not too familiar with)


Outside:


I was sent a gender neutral cover because at the time I contacted Diaper Daisy I had not yet had my baby girl, and since she was a surprise gender birth....

I LOVE this cover. For a newborn!!! YES!! Absolutely!!
Allison is such a great baby. I nurse her at about 7/7:30 at night and she sleeps in a bassinet in our room, right next to me. When she wakes up for her night feed (not every 2 hours Praise the Lord) at around 12-2 am I feed her and put her straight to bed WITHOUT CHANGING HER DIAPER!!! I know right. It is so nice that this cover will last throughout the night and that I DON'T have to change my baby in the middle of the night, and wake her up when she is so sound asleep!!
Love the fit too!! The size medium (which is what I was sent) is meant to fit a 15-25 lb baby. It fit my tiny girl (probably around 8-ish lbs when I took this picture) perfectly on the smallest setting and underneath the hemp fitted diaper!!
No gaps around the legs:

 
It's awesome! In fact, it's so awesome, that since I received this wool cover, I was overcome with the desire to own one with a bit of pink and I bought a CASHMERE size small from a local gal! Better yet, she only charged me $20 for it and the cashmere covers cost $36.95 brand new!!! It is soooo soft!! I am in love!


You can buy a Babee Greens wool cover from Diaper Daisy for only $34.99 and it is soooo worth the price!

Here is a little more information on this cover (taken from Diaper Daisy's website):
"Wool is a natural fabric made from the coat of sheep. It has the capacity to both absorb and resist moisture.  The inner layer, or cortex, is hydrophilic, or absorbent. It is capable of retaining up to 35 percent of its weight in moisture. The exterior layer of wool is coated in lanolin.  Lanolin creates a natural, waxy water shedding layer.  This also helps make wool fiber resistant to stains.

Wool is also breathable and allows for maximum circulation around your baby's bum. Air circulation helps prevent diaper rash as well as alleviates the health concerns of trapped heat within a diaper.

Wools natural elasticity means your baby's diaper cover will fit well and move with your baby's movement making it comfortable and efficient.

Using Wool Diaper Covers

Wool diaper covers and longies are easy to care for because wool does not need frequent laundering. The lanolin in the wool combined with the ammonia in urine create it's own soap. One way to know if your cover or longies need laundering (outside of being soiled) is if the urine smell does not go away after airing dry. This means the lanolin has worn thin and has lost most of its waterproofing as well.
Wool covers require hand washing. Wash gently in lukewarm water with a mild soap. After washing, soak cover in warm water with lanolin for at least 30 minutes (or overnight). Roll in a towel to remove excess water and lay in a warm place to dry.
