Have you caught the fitted and wool love yet? Fitted diapers and wool are almost their own sub-culture in the cloth diapering world. They seem a little more intimidating than they are, so it can take a while for most people to venture into the world of wool and fitted diapers, but once you do, you will see that there are so many amazing options that make diapering easy! Night time diapering with fitteds and wool is especially awesome, as these are typically your most absorbent options! And speaking of options, there are so many to choose from.
One brand we love is EcoPosh. Made by the fabulous people that also bring you Rumparooz, EcoPosh diapers are actually made of organic cotton, bamboo, and recycled water bottles! This is a really green choice for people that are worried about their impact on the environment, as you are using recycled material with every diaper change! It also has a lot of the features you love about Rumparooz, including their patented double gusset, which will contain the messiest of messes.
EcoPosh Recycled Organic One Size Fitted Pocket Diapers is equipped with a pocket, and comes with a bamboo 6R soaker so you can customize the diaper's absorbency to fit your baby's needs. When you have the 6R soaker in the diaper, it has 11 layers of absorbent material! Now keep in mind, as with all fitteds, this diaper will need a cover. EcoPosh fitteds will fit babies from 6 lbs all the way up to around 30-35 lbs.
If you want to start using these fantastically absorbent diapers from birth on, EcoPosh Recycled Organic Newborn Fitted Diapers are made to fit smaller newborns from 4-14 lbs. Made out of the same thirsty materials as the one sized EcoPosh fitted, this sweet newborn diaper has a 4 layer snap in soaker that makes the diaper have 7 layers of squishy goodness. It also has a snap down tummy for that first week or two while your baby's umbilical cord stump heals. It will allow the stump to breathe and heal correctly. Plus, just imagine how adorable your brand new baby will look in these fashionable fitteds!
Now, you might be wondering how you are going to cover these sweet, eco-friendly fitteds? Well, look no further than EcoPosh Wool Covers. Made in two sizes, these 100% knit wool covers will fit babies from 8-20 lbs and 15-35 lbs. These soft and stretchy covers add an extra level of absorption, they are breathable, and are anti-microbial. You will care for these in the same way that you care for all of your wool covers (and if you're new to wool, check out our post here to learn all about how to care wash and lanolize it).
You can even use EcoPosh when your little one starts to potty train! EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants can help contain accidents with two layers of bamboo and cotton and a layer of waterproof TPU. They come in three sizes- 1T/2T, 2T/3T, and 3T+. Keep in mind that these are not diapers, they will not contain everything, but they do help you feel confident when you go out while you are potty training.
One thing to keep in mind with all of these EcoPosh products (with the exception of the wool covers) is that these natural fiber diapers will need to be washed and dried about ten times before they are fully absorbent. So if you get super excited when your fluffy mail arrives, wash it once then put it on your baby, it's not really going to do it's job. I know it's hard to wait ten washes to try out gorgeous fluff like these EcoPosh lovelies, but it is so worth the wait! These are fantastic diapers, and they will quickly become favorites.
