Do you change soakers/longies at every diaper change?<br><br>
I know they can go 2-3 weeks without washing, but do you just rotate them during the day?<br><br>
We've only used wool at night so far, but I learned to knit and would like to branch out!

No I don't usually rotate them. Sometimes if I don't change immediatly, like DS is taking a nap, then I will grab another because the one will be damp. Otherwise I use the same one. If it feels cool or damp to the touch then switch and let that one air dry.

Glad you asked this question. We've just started using longies (oh, I am sooo in love) and I was curious about that too!

I mostly rotate too. It depends on when you catch the need for a change, but we have a small wall-mounted drying rack next to the changing pad, so we just let a couple of pairs air out as needed between wearings. HTH!

No, I don't but my babe is usually without a cover while at home. If they're really wet (occasionally overnight) I'll let 'em dry but otherwise no, I change often so they don't get too damp.

I rotate, unless we are out of the house. I usually use two for a week (alternating at each change), and then wash these and use the other two for a week. I need to wash at least every week because they get dirty from crawling thru dirt and stuff <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I do the same with wool wraps in the summer.
