Aubrey's Undies #3 - Imse Vimse Trainers and Aristocrats Wool Soakers


Aubrey is now 3 and has been day trained for some time, but with her kidney problems having an easy to use night time solution was hard to find.  It was important that we use something that would breathe well, but still help keep her sheets and bed dry at night.  Most important for her was that she was able to use it by herself!  So when she needed to get to the bathroom quickly she could easily pull them down and make it on time.

Aubrey will tell you that she loves her big girl undies!  She loves the fun designs and that they pull on just like her big sisters undies do.  I love how trim they are, fitting easily under her clothes.  ImseVimse Training Pants are functional and stylish and are made with organic cotton.


What are they made of?
Organic cotton knit outside with two layers of absorbent organic cotton terry on the inside, and one inner layer of PUL. ImseVimse training pants absorb just enough to protect clothes from getting wet when small accidents happen.

Although they are recommended for day-time use only, we add an aristocrats wool cover for the perfect nap time and overnight combo.


Aristocrats pure wool pull on diaper cover is made of stretchy, double layered knit wool.  Designed for extra absorbency and protection.

Why wool?
Wool is breathable, helping to maintain normal body temperature.  Wool can actually absorb a third of its weight in liquid before it feels wet.   

It's that time again!  Moms and Bums will once again be sponsoring the upcoming Mom to Mom Charity Sale being held on Mother's Day Weekend, Saturday May 7th from 9am to 1pm at Judith Nyman Secondary School (formerly North Peel).  Come on out and support Peel Children's Safety Village!

Sustainablebabyish Knit Underwoolies REVIEW and GIVEAWAY (closed)!

Hello! Noreen from Merrimack Valley Diapers here. I have a confession to make...

I am addicted to wool!


Now, I don't own any wool for myself to wear... all of the wool that I own is for my son, Wesley, who recently turned two years old. As a cloth-diapered baby, he has had the great luck to have a godmother who can knit custom longies and soakers like nobody's business! We have a pretty good selection of hand-knit wool, as well as some fabulous interlock wool soakers that I have bought from my favorite WAHM on Etsy.com.

But, up until now, we didn't have any wool that was trim enough to fit under my son's regular pants. So I was very excited when Sustainablebabyish | Sloomb introduce their newest item - Knit Underwoolies!

These little underpants are just the perfect cover to a prefold diaper with a snappi (my husband's favorite diaper!) or a fitted diaper (like the Sbish snapless-multi, my favorite fitted!).

From the manufacturer:
sustainablebabyish knit underwoolies are made from √∂ko-tex certified wool yarns and are double-layer knit in the wetzone, making them trim, breathable, soft, and comfortable–perfect for cloth diapered children from newborns to toddlers.

They come in two sizes (size 1 for 0-12 months, and size 2 for 12 months+) and currently only come in natural wool, but I am thinking seriously about getting another pair and hand-dying them. (I'll probably let Wesley decide what color he wants his new underwoolies to be!) Hmmm... now that I think about it, I like this cover so much that maybe I'll get two more! In the meantime, you can win your own pair of underwoolies...
