 Agreed.   Also, I LOVE diaper lab! For wool I really like wooly bottoms!  http://woollybottoms.com/   The other thing is wool gets compression leaks - I love wool for over night and at home in general but wool doesn't really work when they're in a car seat or shopping carriage. 
Sounds like you need to strip...could be detergent build up.    Do they smell right from the wash or after they've been peed in?    I second the soaking - even in the bathtub with a kettle of hot water added if you can.

I suppose this wasn't the proper forum to ask in anyway but thanks for the responses. I feel like I didn't phrase things well because I was a little frantic and sleep deprived but I never intended to nurse my niece myself and would have only given her pumped breast milk if it was what her mom (my sister) wanted. (If my children weren't in my care I would want them to have breast milk vs. formula especially if it were my relative and I knew they were healthy and...
No no it is helpful! Good to know so I don't go switching formulas like crazy on her. I will check out the other forums too. Thanks!!
Sorry I just realized how that sounded! I was replying from my phone and I didn't notice. Thank you for replying and answering :)
