I love fleece on a night time (I haven't tried wool yet) but during the day and under clothes I stick to PUL because I'm always worried Dawn will wick

We only use wool - whether longies/shorties/skirties/crops or soakers. We've only ever had compression wicking issues when Iris wears a soaker and normal clothes when she's been in the sling for a very long period (a couple of hours). I like both knitted wool and interlock; I like that wool is such a breathable, natural material and very easy to care for.

So wool would last in a buggy for a couple of hours maybe? Do you have to REALLY pad the nappy out, like you would at night?

I find a soaker lasts longer in a buggy than in a sling. I think it's because Iris has a little more movement when she's in the buggy; she's much more restricted in a sling. And DD is a heavy wetter at the best of times, but tends to drink a lot when she's in the sling, I think because she gets warmer from being held close, so is even heavier wetting than normal. I don't tend to really pad a nappy out. Though I might add an EP hemp booster if I think I'm going to be a long while. And I've discovered that you can add a booster between nappy and soaker, like you would between nappy and wrap. :)
