If you use wool covers then what about a knitted soaker? Lots of the WAHMs here make them.
Our fav PUL wraps (way back when we used them) were WeeNotions.

The very best wraps I have found are Thirsties Duo, you can get them from Peachy Tots or Kittykins, they have rise poppers so are totally adjustable and come in poppers or velcro/applix, they have leg gussets to keep even the worst poo-explosions in - they do some really nice colours and a couple of cute prints too (I have 6!)

Pockets - try a Tots Bots Easyfit V2 again some fab prints, I love ours and want more!

Night Nappies, I LOVE my LLS Nights, but they will be shut for customs now as Amber (one of the WAHM's) is having her baby soon, so it will be next year before you can get an instock. Other than that I like my WNNN's

HTH!

Thanks for advice guys, was thinking about knitting a soaker myself, will definitely do that, do you just use a heavily boosted nappy underneath for night?

Loving the totsbots patterns, very cute, hoping to sell on two nappies I bought that didn't work out and buy some more :D

Just use you normal nappy under wool, no extra boosting needed unless that is what you have to do any way, the wool does need to be lanolised though.

Out of the nappies you have tried is there any you prefer and what inserts are you using? xx

Hi Kirsty, thanks for that, hopefully I'll get round to knitting it soon, have a long list of things I've been meaning to do lol
my favourites have to be my little comforts bamboo ones, I use the original boosters (fleece lined bamboo) but think my favourite pocket has been a toss up between the ecobubs (original insert, not sure what it is?) or one of the wnss with a hemp or bamboo insert, I've found that everything else leaks pretty badly for us :(

Yes i would either use a heavily bosted nappy or a dedicated night nappy (weenotions night notions/puddlekins night nappy/Holdens landing bedbug etc) under the wool for it to last all night...wool is magic but the nappy does need to be absorbant enough to last your LO all night :)

Well I tried out an itti tutto today and it worked really well,k had heard they were quite bulky but was much less so than my little comforts.
Miranda I did see someone selling naturebabies wraps and they looked cute, do you find them leakproof?
