I'm still very early in the "research" stage right now when it comes to EC. I figure I have time since I am only 16 weeks preggers at the moment but I'm sure that time will FLY. I'm going to be a SAHM so I really hope to do EC full time starting when the baby is about 3 months old since for some reason holding a newborn with no head support over a toilet kind of freaks me out. Maybe I'll get over that.
Anyways. I'm sure I'm not going to catch every pee/poo so I'm considering still using cloth diapers. The only issue I have found is that the snaps seem kind of annoying for how often they are going to be going on and off. Then today I found wool soakers on etsy that weren't stupid expensive. Huzzah! I'm super excited (assuming my hair brained idea makes sense.) They look and seem like normal undies or at least are easy to pull on/off and seem pretty low maintenance in terms of care.
My big "concern" for lack of a better term is that it appears that wool diapers are meant to be worn over prefolds. This kind of negates the whole "wow that seems so easy" factor that made me so excited about them. Can I use shorties or longies without prefolds underneath? I'm assuming they would need changed more often during messes and I would have to buy more than the 4 pairs that is adverised as all you need. I'm cool with this as long as it moderately works plus they are so darn cute anyways!
Has anyone used wool diapers for EC? Is this a crazy idea where I would just be wasting my money? I'm only planning on buying a few when the kid gets here to try it out but I would assume I would find more info on this via the interwebz to tell me yay or nay before I invest monies.
