The Summertime Challenge

The warm weather is finally making it’s way to frosty Ithaca, NY. The sun is shining, and babies all over town are stretching out their legs, finally free of snow pants. It is time to put forth my summertime challenge.

Most cloth diapering parents can get on board with wool covers. Natural fibers, breathable, recycled… what’s not to love? But when the warm weather comes rolling in, most bail on their woolies. Those sweet little sweater butts lose their appeal when it is 75 and sunny.

I understand, really I do. I mean who would want to wear a wool sweater on a sunny day? Not me. But I’d choose that wool sweater over a trash bag in a heartbeat.

That is the part that is so easy to forget. It is not wool versus cotton. It is wool versus vinyl. So give your woollies a shot. Your baby will thank you. Since wool is so breathable, your baby will not overheat. And look how cute they are!

About Gently Made

Gently Made specializes in recycled wool diaper covers and longies for babies and toddlers. All of our covers and longies are made from recycled wool, making them the environmentally friendly choice for your little one.

Though they were originally designed to fit over a pinned prefold or fitted diaper, our covers are also great over a disposable diaper for heavy nighttime wetters, and make cute “bloomers” under little dresses. The toddler size covers are perfect for a potty trainer. Just slip them on over big kid undies and they keep any accidents discreet.

Gently Made also offers a line of hand knit hats for babies and toddlers in a variety of sizes and colors. If you see a style you like but it is not the right size, let us know! Custom orders are welcome.
