How often should I need to lanolize my wool? I have several WIO's and a pair of pickle pants and was wondering how often I need to lanolize them? Some times my WIO's leak, but I think it is more compresion wicking from his super soaking and then sitting on the ground than that they really need lanolized, but I am new to all of this and not certain. Also what is the best way to lanolize. I started out using lansinoh disolved in hot water, mixed with cold and then soaked the wool in it for over half an hour. But then I bought some nice mini lanolizers from MDF and they are so much easier to use, but I am not sure if my wool is getting as well lanolized now, or maybe my wool was just over lanolized before? Thank you ladies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I love the wool buddies from MDF, I think they work just as well as lansinoh and are much easier. I'm not really sure you can over-lanolize? The wool will eventually soak up the extra.<br>
I lanolize every month or so, I usually let the wool tell me when it needs it. I can tell when it's just not working to its fullest. I also bought some spray lanolin from <a href="http://www.naturalsimplicity.net" target="_blank">www.naturalsimplicity.net</a> and while I don't think it's going to be great for major lanolizing I think it's a great pick-me-up for wool. Just a spray in the right areas every week or so and it's good to go.
