i have made ds 2 wool jersey covers and love them...but i only use them at home. at home i put one on him and then at the next change i will use the other so they can dry between uses...how do you do that when you are out and about...just leave in the diaper bag wet/moist till you get home? i have more wool to make more covers but just haven't yet.<br><br>
so, how do you use wool when out and about?

I usually just lay mine on the passenger seat to air out....sometimes even over the head rest :LOL I use soakers though.<br><br>
I check my DS every hour at most when we're out & about....we're pretty much all wool so that's what we do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> (in the process of selling my two PUL's then will "officially" be all wool)

well I am usually not out long enough that it needs to air out. Most of the time I change him before it has leaked to the other side. But at home when I am switching them, I fold it inside out so it will dry.<br><br>
we are all wool because DS's butt overheats in anything even remotely like PUL, and it makes his skin sweat and then rub and then split, well it just isnt pretty. I have 2 HHs but use the same wool cover over and over and go coverless a lot.)

I usually hang mine over the passenger seat too. But I usually change him before the cover or soaker is even moist. My DS has only wool and my DD has a few PUL covers but they are rarely used.

I usually just set it on top of the diaper bag, or if it is really wet I put it in the wet bag and wash it as soon as I get home.

I have a problem with compression wicking when I use wool or fleece on the go (if they are to be in a carseat or grocery seat for too long) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

Aherne, I have terrible problems with compression wicking too. When it's 120 degrees in the car there is very little I can do to keep the kids cool and dry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. I use pockets dipes when we're out and about <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
