Wool diaper covers prevent nighttime leaks

Amazon: Kissa's Wool Lover Diaper Cover More soft, wooly advice from Tiffany:

Another nighttime leaky diaper tip: Diapers do not fit all kids all the time, add the nighttime shuffling and leg bending and, well... even the best fitting diapers can leak. A wool diaper cover (sometimes called a soaker) could be the answer! Imagine a soft sweater combined with a pull-up, the waist and legs ribbed to fit close. Plus, wool is breathable and anti-bacterial. If you're handy with the knitting needles, you could check out this free pattern. Otherwise, Aristocrat makes a great one.

we heartily agree. we never have any leaks with our homemade soakers. those are the ones we make! very easy to knit, and easy to pull up and down for elimination communication/diaperfree.
