I’m about to take the plunge with wool covers and longies. My question is what can my little one wear at night with the wool cover/soaker? It’s too chilly to just wear the soaker and I wonder if there would be an moisture wicking with cotton sleepers.
Hi Delacey! If you’re using longies, they alone should be plenty warm for night time. If you’re using soakers/covers, it might get a little chilly! Depending on how old your baby is, you can just use a sleep sack over top of the soaker to keep him/her warm. In my experience, as long as you have appropriate absorbency under a well fitting, well lanolized soaker, you shouldn’t experience any leaks or wicking with whatever you choose (make sure pants aren’t tucked into the cover!) However, I really liked using polyester fleece PJ pants over the wool as an added backup!
What do you use over wool at night?
