Re: Wool leaking

I've heard that there is such a thing as "over lanolizing" so I'm not sure if that could be it. Another thing is, are you sure its wool and not acrylic? Or is it an acrylic blend? Other than that, thats all I can think of that would make it leak. Try turning it inside out when you wash and lanolize it and see if that helps.

Re: Wool leaking

Turning them inside out when you lanolize does help. Are they feeling tacky at all. If they are uber tacky then youve probably overlanolized. If they dont ahve a tckiness to them then you probably arent lanolizing enough.
Also, is it possible that DC is wetting more than usual? Is the diaper absorbing enough?

I just had a customer said she soaked a wrap in woolwash all night and now it leaks. I told her to rinse, rinse, rinse... but I didn't even know that could happen.

Re: Wool leaking

Is she really little? I noticed wool gets compression leaks sometimes if they are just lying around all the time and not changing position much. It works better for me now that Arabella is more active.

DD is 2 weeks old so thats probably the problem
I dont think it over/under lanolizing and I always wash and lanolinize both side
so it must be compression leaks

Re: Wool leaking

My dd is almost 4 mos and we keep having this problem too. I thought it was the covers, but it might be not enough absorbency in the dipes (she doesn't move around a whole lot from what I've seen while she sleeps)
