Why should you use fitteds and wool products? What are the differences between all of the options? Is it hard to care for and launder?
Fitted cloth diapers are the perfect option for families wanting to use only the most natural products next to their child's skin. Fitted diapers require a diaper cover since they do not have any waterproof layers built in. They pair perfectly with wool for overnight protection and for a leak-proof protection. The Sloomb fitted cloth diapers are all bamboo and organic cotton blends. The Snapless Multifitted is a one-size option (fitting 10-35lbs), the Happy Little Clouds are 2 sized, mini's are for newborns (5-15lbs), and the OBF (Overnight Bamboo Fleece) are multi-sized (XS-XL).
Wool garments(Woolies) are 100% wool diaper covers and can be used under clothing or as clothing over a diaper. Woolies do need to be lanolized if you are using them as a diaper cover. This is a simple process that will make the woolies water-resistant and a great option for overnight!
Underwoolies: A day-time favorite knit wool cover. Underwoolies are a must-have cover for natural diapering. Underwoolies are a single layer of knit wool; whereas wool covers are two layers thick. Must be hand washed.
Double Layer Underwoolies: A machine washable, double layer knit undergarment made with 100% merino wool. These are soft and trim, the perfect under garment cover or trainer.
