Today is the fifth day of the flats and handwashing challenge at Cloth Diaper Revival.
We use all wool covers full time around here. For this challenge I limited myself to six wool covers from One Love Diaper Co. I usually only use three or four a day, but I’m paranoid about having back up.
I actually found Ozark Mountain Mama looking for baby shoes, and boy does she make some cute ones. She also had interlock on sale, and I’m a try it all kind of person when it comes to wool, so I helped myself to two pairs of bubble shorties.

We became majority wool wearers around six months, so I can’t yet speak about wool and newborns (though stick around and there’ll more on that in the future). I was influenced by the Waldorf idea that baby should be clothed in wool to help regulate their temperature so they can put that energy to use growing instead of staying warm, and also because I wanted to cloth diaper using only natural fibers.

The pants and capris are very similar, with the capris having a shorter leg and smaller cuff.
