Responsible Mother ~ Wool Diaper Cover Review

I was sent a wool diaper cover to review from Responsible Mother. It is a sized snap cover that con be used over a pocket, fitted or even a flat diaper! It is made of 100 % super soft wool.

Wool covers are used as an outer layer for some types of cloth diapers. Most commonly, a flat, prefold or fitted diaper is used on the inside for absorbency, while the wool shorties are used as the outermost waterproof layer.

If you do not own any wool, now is the time to add some to your stash. If you are like me, and love fitteds you need a good cover. That is where wool comes in. As long as it isn't soiled, you can reuse wool for weeks without washing! Crazy right? That has to be my favorite part.

I love the fit of the Responsible Mother Diaper Cover! The wings have three snaps each. Allowing the diaper to not overlap. Making them a bit big for newborns.

Wool does a fabulous job of stopping leaks. Many families prefer wool for heavy wetters or for night time diapers. The wool gets its absorbency from the lanolin. Which does require a little extra care during washing to maintain its unique breathable, waterproof properties. The wool also needs to be treated with lanolin to help it stop diaper leaks.

A great add on to this diaper cover is their hemp inserts! I highly recommend them as boosters! Add them to your nighttime diaper routine for a leak free night!
Made from 55% hemp and 45% environmentally-friendly cotton.

About Responsible Mother
We are a family growing two small children (3 year-old Dominykas and 1 year-old Matas). Over the first pregnancy we already knew and believed that we will bring up our children healthily. Ecology idea is very close to our way of living and we also think the person‘s lifestyle should not harm not only him but the environment as well. While incubating the ideas into what we are going to diaper, how we will feed our baby, we decided to use cloth diapers, to dress in natural fibre clothes (wool, silk, cotton), to use only environmentally-friendly  household, washing, cosmetic items, also wooden toys or sewn on mother‘s own. This is how „responsible mother“ was born.
 Cloth diapers  for modern parents who think different! That was our slogan while in search for textile, modelling, and sewing products. In the beginning there were just small orders for acquaintance mothers, who wanted to grow their children healthily, but after receiving positive feedback and recommendations we started working at full length. We offer you cloth diapers  handmade with love and warmth in Lithuania.

Wool should only be hand washed and air dried flat. It WILL shrink or and be small enough to fit a newborn if you try to dry it in the dryer. Also do not use a clothes line. Just lay it flat. It does take over a day to dry after being washed. I think it usually takes up to 48 hours for us to dry wool.

If you do not cloth diaper, a wool cover is even a great accessory for disposables! They can keep your little ones tushy warm too!

You can find this diaper cover here, and in a variety of colors.
