So I guess I'm officially giving up on daytime wool!<br><br>
I tried for a year to use fulltime wool but i just can't stand yucky sweaty wool and all that bulk under dd's clothing.<br><br>
It was a fun ride trying all sorts of diapers and cover combos but I realized that I was really making diapering more work than it neede to be, now I'm back to being practical.

How odd, I'm so sorry! We never have any sweaty wool.. clothes or otherwise. I can totally understand why you'd be frustrated!<br><br>
And I hear those airflows last like 100 years! Ok.. not quite that long but they really hold up! Enjoy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I'm sorry you had to give up on daytime wool~sweaty wool?<br><br>
But I'm glad you found a better option that works for you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br>
We originally went wool b/c of my DS chubby thighs were too big for the airflows :LOL

I hear ya mama! I love some of my wool covers, but many of them, even the hyena ones, do let evaporation through. It's what makes them breathable! How can they not evaporate and be breathable? It's very subtle, but I feel it, too, and don't really care for it under clothes.<br>
We have some cute wool covers for around the house or for showing off and wearing without clothes, but most of the time we are bigtime air flow users. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

<div style="font-style:italic;">Report back on how you like the airflows! I need a few covers and was thinking I might try one.</div>

I love Airflows, these are all I will use on future kiddos because none of the other PUL covers I've used work as well and fit for so long!<br><br>
When my dd first started fitting L diapers (about 6 mo) I bought 1 of these and 8 Litewraps. After about 6 mo the litewraps were kinda beat up and really didn't fit my dd but AF still looked like new and fit just fine. If I I'd bought only AirFlows I probably would have never even bothered to try anything else.<br><br>
Then for some silly reason I decided to sell all my PUL including the AF, I wanted wool to work that bad!<br><br>
I'm happy that I decided to branch out and try lots of different wool covers and fitteds. It was really fun and I learned tons about diapersewing, but all that trial and error made diapering far more expensive and difficult than it had to be. I never really found the "perfect" fitted diaper-cover combo for my super soaker, skinny waisted, chubby thighed toddler.

Airflows are my all-time favorite cover too. I love my wool, but its a great balance to have a couple airflows and a couple wool covers imo.<br><br>
Airflows really make me happy everytime I put them on my ds! I love the classic white and the poofy little butt.<br><br>
Do you have whites or prints? Maybe I'll branch out and get some prints for ds #2....

I agree with the sweaty through the clothes, I love wool at night because I can definately feel the difference inside his diaper it is cool. but for under clothes I go withe the airflow, nothing has worked as well and we have never had a leak they are dependable!. As for the prints I bought a used airflow in the whale print and the print is quite faded and the inside yellowish, I don't know if this is because it is a print or if it is because it is old? But the whales are cute. I agree about the size range My ds is still fitting the mediums on the largest setting, he has been wearing them for 6 months he is 23 pounds and he can wear med, ml, and large

I bought their pkg with 2 of each, it really is a bummer that they don't have more prints but I guess that's how they keep price reasonable and quality uniform.<br><br>
I know motherease stuff is boring compared to some of the incredibly beaitiful WAHM items out there but I love knowing exactly what to expect when I place an order.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I got a ML when dd was about 6 mo (chubby 18 lbs) and this size still fits great at 2 yo and 31 lbs. Do ya'll think that for the next baby I could skip Med and go straight from small to ML? (How silly, DH and I just decided to start TTC #2 and I'm already mentally diapering it.)

Oh great. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I've just started acquiring wool for the summer since I'm worried PUL will be too hot. I LOVE my airflows, but I was hoping wool would be cooler and just as effective. Oh well, I sent my wool to daycare for the first time today, so we'll see how she copes. She always listens to my instructions carefully, says yes yes, and then does her own thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I'll probably have wool mixed up with poopy dipes in the bag. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross"><br><br>
I think I'll have the eyeroll smilie tatoo on my butt. I use it at least once in every post. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

You'll probably be fine, I think it's just supersoaker kids who can't do wool on the go. It seems that ton's of mdc mamas use wool 24/7 w/o any problem.

I love my AirFlows, too! I just have the white ones, but I agree that they're great under clothes. BUT, my new wool covers are so cute, too, especially with no pants! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I would give it a try. My ds just turned 2 and I have been using larges since he was 6 months old. Yes, they were a little big but not terrible....
