You can actually use Lansinoh, the stuff you put on your nips when first BF? It's pure lanolin and found pretty easily.

Is it just the soaker? Is anything put in like inserts?
Wool is just the soaker/cover. You will need either fitteds, perfolds, or flats underneath. You won't need inserts
Wow excellent, the soaker is 3/4 knitted and I'm off to mother care for lansinoh hopefully we'll have our first knitted soaker by the weekend. I've read somewhere that for nighttimes they need something extra in them (other than the nappy) is this right?

Not necessarily. You do need a good absorbent nappy underneath, as wool won't hold back a tide, but as long as the nappy isn't "squeezably" wet, it will be fine. If you are using overnight, you will probably either have to boost, or use 2 nappies - one on top of the other, or if you use terry squares, use 2 folded together, but it does depend on what you use, and how heavy a wetter your LO is. As a general rule though, for overnight add some extra absorbency.

I found that I can just stick a doubled up piece of fleece in the diaper and it works prefect for nighttime.


BTW, littlepants -- I've totally converted to wool! Thanks for this post!!!!

You can always try Little Pant's trials. I'm sure she doesn't mind me posting this, but she has a return policy if you decide it's not for you (altho if you're like me - you'll be converted )

Thank you I have looked at Little Pant's site but I have limited funds this month (bloody 10 year driving licence photo renewal WOULD happen while I'm on maternity pay!) so I have ordered a Disana cover from twinkleontheweb to try. If we get on with it, I will be hotfooting it back to Little Pants after payday

Not quite sure how to do that, but if any mods read this, that would be a good idea. It does seem to be something that interests a lot of people!
