The only "home" test I know of is to pull off a fiber and burn it. If it smells like burnt hair, it's wool. If it melts & smells like burnt plastic, it's acrylic.

You may need to "season" your...

Wool will work as long as you use a good absorbent layer. You may try using a soaker over the top of a BG for extra insurance.

I have to agree with the pp. Stains are something you will learn to accept. They do tend to fade with use so don't stress too much. It is hard at first though, you have paid a lot of $$ for them,...

Go for it!

I would also recommend looking at Ruskovilla longies. They are great for newborns because they are soft and trim and have a ton of stretch so they will grow with your baby.
