And the thought that it's got pee in it doesn't bother you?
Hun , when your LO arrives you will be covered head to toe in all sorts a tiny bit of wee isn't going to bother you.
Yes, I know. I do have two children already. I don't mind dealing with pee, it was just the thought of reusing a cover for weeks with pee sitting in it. And I know it's sterile, but it doesn't stay like that for long.
Anyway, I've thought about it and wonder whether this is actually the way it's meant to work: When the wool is properly lanolised it's meant to be waterproof, isn't it? And when you air the wool out, you're just allowing the pee on the surface to evaporate. So the fact that wool can absorb 30% of its own weight in fluid isn't really what you want it to do in this case, right? Because if it's absorbing the liquid on one side it's also going to let it out again the other side, and that's not what you want to happen, right? (Sorry, scientist overanalysing the mechanisms involved... )
So I'm coming round to the idea of using wool. Could you just enlighten me as to what wool interlock is, as opposed to wool knit? Is one better than the other?
