Woolie Baby Soakers / Earthy Baby Soakers

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have one of these that I got for bella as a newborn. It was nice and soft and easy to roll down under her belly button until it healed. The leg openings were really close together, which worried me, but it didn't seem to be a problem! They worked great for her.

Not as absorbent as the Aristocrat soaker, but just as cute and it was considerably cheaper, so I didn't expect equal absorbancy.

I give it a
But if you have extra $$$ and you're itching to try a pull on wool soaker, I do love that aristocrat!

I have a wool soaker for my 20 month old and I use it all the time at night. I realy like it. The price is great too!

The fit is good on my baby, she is 25 lbs and in the large. I like that the wool is thinner and therefor dries quickly after washing. I didnt like the Aristocrat since it took forever to dry.

I plan to get some of these for my new baby.

I am completely in love with the Woolie Babies soakers!

I got some from Woolie Babies, and when they arrived, I koolaid dyed them. After that, I re-lanolized them (in case some was lost in the dying process) and tried one out. It fit perfect.... I was worried it would fit funny.

I really liked my (old design) WB Soaker for the most part. It fits like a little pair of shorts, kind of! lol It was easy to put on and take off and held up as well as any other daytime soaker I've tried.
Only con for me was that you need to tie it (I prefer a "cuff" on top w/out ties) and the crotch is very narrow, which could allow bits of diaper to be exposed at times (think when in a bouncy seat or Bjorn carrier).
I know a new design is currently in the works, but don't know if it will be a permanent design change. I thought I'd mention it, though!

I am very unhappy with Earthy Baby. I thought the price was awesome and ordered a pair of soakers a MONTH ago. Turnaround time was supposed to be 2 weeks. I have never gotten an email from the mama and I have emailed her THREE TIMES with no response. I have filed a claim with paypal and it is pending...

I am on the fence with this soaker. They are machine knit (which was made very clear to be by the maker) but I wasn't impressed with the function of the soaker. The stitches were a bit loose and didn't absorb very well, though it was fine for around the house. I asked her to make the leg holes a little big for my chubby thighed baby, which she did. But they ended up being a little big and the diaper would show through. They are very inexpensive and very quick to dry which is great. If you don't have a lot of money to spend then these are a great alternative to a high priced hand knit soaker.

I am fortunite enough to be able to afford a few of the pricier soakers so I won't be ordering any more, but you really can't beat the price. She was also very quick, I think I waited a week or so.

I have had 2 years of experience working with the wahm who owns earthybaby and she is always determined to see her customers happy, but it does seem to be true that she has vanished from the face of the earth. I have had no luck contacting her in the past 2+ months I have tried.

I hope her family is well.

Me too. I have worked with her, too. It seems like she's fallen off the planet.

earthy baby soakers

Well, I'm very angry about WoolieBaby soakers. I ordered 2 custom ones from her at her Earthybaby site 6 MONTHS AGO and she refuses to return any emails, I have never received my soakers, and I am now out $40 ! GRRR!

I really love my soaker pants from Earthy Baby! They are perfect for night time.

Well, I placed two more orders about two months ago and I had contact with Amy for about a week and then nothing! She was always super friendly and responsive! I really hope she and her family is ok!

I had a very similar problem to many of the previous posters. I ordered a soaker from her site and I e-mailed her 4 times ... after not returning my e-mail for a few weeks I filed a complaint with pay-pal. She finally refunded my money.

I thought Amy was a good business mama and maybe she still is but have had a problem with her recently. I placed a wholesale order for soakers for my store back in April 2004 and was told it would be a few weeks, it is now almost August and I have not heard a word from this mama. I spent $213 on product and have not seen it or received a refund. I have phoned her home to no avail, only to be told she would phone me back but never has. I am hoping she will send the product or a refund. I might be in dream land. I am very dissappointed as I had great Kool-Aid plans for those and I am now out money that I cannot afford to be out. Wah.
