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. This is big!
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.
As with all clothing, fit varies and is not guaranteed.
You can see there is still a lot of growing room in this cover. Size 110-116 cm, called size 4T-5T, shown.
Love these! Use them as pajama shorties for my chunky 2 yr old, and my thin 4 yr old and 5 yr old. My daughter wears them under dresses for modesty, as well. They are nice and stretchy, much more comfortable than most leggings on the market. My daughter never liked how leggings bound her waist, but these don't do that, so we will probably by another pair or two for her to wear with dresses.
My son loved the softness and wooly feel unfortunately he still leaks through every night and the cover is smelling very strong after a week or two. At first I thought I hadn't felted it enough so I went at it again and it got so felted just barely fit. I re-lanolinized after felting and was very hopeful but hasn't given the performance I was expecting from the previous reviews. I will have to try another alternative..
Exactly what needed for my 4 and 6 yo.
Got this for night time diapering on my 34 pound 3 year old daughter. Washed using a wool wash bar after I received it, rolled in a towel and hung to dry. Has never leaked, with a green stitching workhorse fitted diaper. It's a little big but I expect some shrinkage with future washings. My goal was for a reusable 'pull up', that she could pull up and down herself. She can put the wool cover and fitted on by herself if I presnap the fitted. But the fitted is snug and has not much growing room. In the summer she will wear the wool to bed like shorts. For this winter she is wearing larger cotton pj's over the wool cover.
We’ve been using the Disana wool pull-on covers for “nighttime pants” since our little guy was a newborn, and it’s hard to believe this is the last size—though he’s got plenty of room to grow in them! They are magic for overnight and keep the sheets fresh and dry almost like magic! Wool is the best! Thank you GMD for convincing us to give it a try!
