Babee Greens Wool Shorties are interlock merino wool shorts for baby. Use these as clothing over a diaper and cover for that extra insurance in case of a leak or edges wicking. Or use it over a diaper as a lightweight diaper cover/clothing combination for extreme comfort. The wool is soft and stretchy 100% merino wool made from Merino Wool knit with Oeko Tex 100 certified yarn. Wash by hand with a proper wool wash, but it doesn't need washing often since it is wool. Handwashing is recommended. Made in USA.
Also available in long legs pants.
Washing instructions: Wash by hand using a gentle wool wash such as Eucalan or a gentle bar soap such as Olive Oil Soap. Do not use Unicorn Beyond Clean on Babee Greens wools. Detailed instructions are provided on the Wool Page which is included with your order.
We are currently using three of these - one size medium and two size large for our ~17.5lb baby. They go over a size medium workhorse. The medium accidentally went through the wash, so it has felted and shrunk some :( but the larges still fit, although loose! The picture is a size large. These are thin so they require more frequent changes, but very trim compared to Disanas, which we have two of. Those are being put away for the summer, but these shorties will be nice for hotter weather. They dry much more quickly. They do sit up high on the tummy, but not as high as Disanas. Overall love these! My one minor complaint is that the tag inside will touch your baby's skin on the back, so I pulled the threads and removed the inner tag.
I bought these for my almost 2 year old son. He seems to like them and they seem comfy. Fits him well with room to grow-he’s 24 lbs. They’re light weight and I’m planning to have him in it a lot during the summer. I’ll probably buy a smaller one for my daughter.
The directions on how to wash and lanolize made it very easy. They've been working really well and are so soft and easy to get on my larger baby. Can't beat the price either. I am very happy with this purchase!
I can't comment on the longevity of these yet, but I have been so impressed by these shorts. After trying many different types of covers, I knew I liked the pull-on type best, but my beloved Disana covers are a bit much for summertime day use here, and because they are knit, are prone to holes in a way interlock is not. I've also been having a hard time finding shorts that fit my petite toddler well. I really like the way these fit. The mediums hit her just above the knee (she is about 20.5 pounds, close to 30 inches tall). The are roomy but not billowy. The material is SO soft. I have let her play outside in them and cringed at how dirty they looked. But a long soak in wool detergent and they look completely new, and they dry quickly compared to thicker soakers like the Disana. I like that they are very utilitarian and obviously geared toward the toddler's comfort. I have been surprised by how dry they feel even after a few hours. I just ordered two more pairs with the plan to use these as her regular summer shorts.
We've been using these over a fitted at night. I do think he finds them way more comfortable than a regular diaper cover and I like that his bottom can get some air. I was nervous about the care of them but it really has been easy. Just air them out until they no longer smell fresh and then its time to hand wash them. Easy. A good investment.
