Pull-Up Wool Covers
Babee Greens Pull-Up Woolies are great for overnight and potty training as they pull up just like shorts. They are a wonderful option when struggling to find a cover with a nice high rise.

Made from two layers of Oeko-Tex 100 certified Merino Wool. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for all stages of textile production. This certification ensures that products are free from harmful substances. There is no finer certification than the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It goes beyond the organic label!
Benefits of Wool:
- Highly absorbent. It will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and is slow to feel damp.
- Remains breathable, allowing maximum circulation around your baby’s bum.
- Contains natural lanolin, which creates a waterproof barrier.
- Easy to care for. It doesn’t need to be washed as often as other covers.
- Naturally anti-bacterial.
- Elasticity means the cover fits well, yet moves with your baby.
Hand wash and lay flat to dry. Periodic lanolizing is needed for optimum absorbency.
I got the size small for my 2 month old and there was no way it was going to fit him with a fitted cotton diaper under. I exchanged for a medium, and it works well. It has some give that makes it not too hard to pull on and off, but isn't as easy or quick as my BabeeGreens cashmere shorties that I use as diaper covers. The legs and waist on the wool pull-up are cuffed, which I imagine makes it more leak-proof than the cashmere shorties, but even so, I prefer the cashmere shorties, and that is what I will be buying as my primary cover when I need to size up (and the size small in the shorties fits great for my baby, even now at 3 months). I also got a side-snap wool cover to compare. The side snap is faster to take on and off and seems to be just as comfortable, plus it offers adjustability. So, to summarize, my main reason for trying the wool pull-up covers was comfort, especially in the waist. They ARE comfortable if you size up, but the cashmere shorties and wool side snap styles are equally or more comfortable, are easier to take on and off, and provide great protection as well, so I prefer those styles.
