In the old days, when there were no disposable diapers, moms used wool diaper covers, which were warm, soft and gentle on the baby's skin.

The wool diaper cover was worn over a cloth diaper to keep the baby's clothes dry.

The concept of wool diaper covers is old and well-known in various cultures all over the world.

Wool diaper covers are still a perfectly feasible option in this day and age!

Wool is a wonderful natural option for a cover because it is highly breathable yet extremely absorbent without feeling wet on the outside.

Wool covers are great for all seasons and make the perfect cover for newborns, toddlers, even potty trainers.

Also you can join a Wool Soaker Yahoo group and ask any soaker related questions. There are many experienced knitters. This talkative group loves to discuss wool soakers for use as diaper covers in all forms; knit, crochet, fabric, recycling other materials, etc... Wool is a wonderful, natural option compared to other synthetic fibers.

Thanks to Shelly and Olga for these Frugal Baby Tips!
