I'm not a doula, but if I were to hire one, I'd want one who has been through childbirth herself, and I wouldn't care if she was "too young". Not that I'd never hire one who hasn't had a baby...

How about a wool cover? We use disana, but my kiddos are younger, so I'm not sure how that would fit him. The nice thing about wool is that you can always have someone custom knit them.
