This size is the best for those years when night time potty learning physical development has not been reached and comfort is needed. I love this during the preschool and school years because it is like a pair of shorts. It doesn't seem diaper-like, so it can be nice in that way. Older kids may be able to pull it up and down, too, depending on the absorbency style that you put underneath it.
All the great benefits of wool in a size that fits many 3-8 year olds, depending on shape. This is available in many color choices in smaller sizes but not this size.This size called 110-116 or 4T-5T, it is only made in undyed natural. It is not made in colors in this size.
Why wool? Wool is breathable. This cover is a favorite at nighttime because it virtually never leaks. The wool is totally untreated and is naturally antibacterial thus doesn't retain odors. Is wool itchy? Commercial wool can be, but this wool is untreated and wonderfully soft. Don't be afraid to try wool! This style has been loved for generations because it is so effective. The 2 layer double knit stretches for a gentle and comfortable fit over a very wide size range. A must for the family bed! Nighttime heavy wetter? This is the answer. It's cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Yes, really! That's because it's so breathable. Wool does need to be hand washed, and occasional lanolization is helpful. But washing is needed only very infrequently, sometimes only once a month. Wool airs out to fresh easily. View our video of how to wash wool here. Don't forget your wool care products. This wool is produced according to the organic standards. Lovely Merino wool. It was called Demeter Certified Organic, which is the highest of pure standards. Those standards are still maintained for beautiful Disana wools. Disana is a wonderful family business located in Germany, dedicated for 2 generations to organic wools and cottons, long before "organic" became a "thing". These are positively beautiful covers. It is knitted wool. We like nice long legs this has. No leg gaps with this one! Once fully broken in, the performance is great. Once prepared, I have never, ever had a leak from one! I think this is the only cover I can can say that about, under even my kiddo's hard and deliberate testing - pushing diapers and covers to their limits. It is designed to shrink some, and should be prepared by handwashing and felting somewhat (shrunk a bit) before first use. Never machine wash this cover. Do not put it in the dryer. Gently hand wash only. It is normal and expected for the very fine merino wool to pill with use because it is very soft wool. It's ok to size up if you are in the upper end of the weight ranges that we suggest, they do shrink. Handwash only. Made in Germany.
Remember the wool is only as good as the diaper underneath it. Don't put this over a pair of underwear and expect a miracle. You must put absorbency underneath it in order for it to work properly. Try a Cloth-eez Prefold size large or toddler. You might like to pin put a medium or large prefold between two pairs of (up-sized) underwear so that the whole thing pulls up and down. The more cotton you put underneath it, the more absorbency you will have. Adjust the absorbency amount to the output correctly and it will be a "bulletproof" nighttime setup that works well and is comfortable for you child.
You can see there is still a lot of growing room in this cover. Size 110-116 cm, called size 4T-5T, shown.
This is such a lovely cover! I lanolized it with Lanisoh, which you can buy a tube of in the baby section at the supermarket. There are helpful instruction videos on YouTube. I found you need to use more lanolin than they suggest. This cover is so soft and I just love knitteds. The cover smells like a sheep! My favorite thing about this cover is that it is big and it pulls on over the diaper. I couldn’t find a diaper cover that fits over the larger fitteds (even after trying about every PUL cover out there). This cover pulls on right over the diaper like a pair of shorts which is a great help when your hyper toddler doesn’t want to sit still while you fasten the snaps on their fitted and then the snaps on a PUL cover.
I used this cover for my almost 3 year old for her naps and overnight. I also use the same size ones for my 4 yr old who only uses it at night for those rare times he has “accidents”
After a year of dry nights my daughter started peeing the bed again. We tried pull ups but they don’t hold as much as we need them too. We tried the washable mattress pads but I was changing her bedding 3-4 times a night. So I went back to cloth. Two muslins in a pickman fold with the Disana over the top and she now sleeps through the night again and I’m not up all night changing bedding. My only complaint would be where the leg bands connect to the body of the pull on is a bit tight so I cannot actually pull them all the way up without causing her discomfort.
Runs big but great quality
These really are amazing! We have had Temperatures in the 90s this week and this wool pair of shorts actually kept him cool! And dry sheets every day is so great.
