Product Details

The original Baby Beehinds Wool Cover is back! Being a natural fibre, wool is the most breathable type of cover you will find. It can hold up to 3 times its weight without feeling wet (seriously wool is amazing!) AND on those hot summer nights your little one will stay super cool.

Why are wool covers so amazing for night?
    • 97% Australian Merino Wool / 3% Spandex using 100% Australian Merino Wool
    • Wool can hold 3-4 times it weight in liquid without feeling wet so it absorbs any excess moisture from the nappy
    • Wool is more breathable than PUL Covers, so keeps your baby fresh all night 

Please note: You will need to wash & lanolise your new wool covers prior to using them as they are not lanolised when you receive them.

Baby Beehinds covers come in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large‚ and are a stretchy‚ generous fit to ensure that the whole night nappy is covered. This is a pull-up style cover.

Small 2-4kg
Medium 4-8kg
Large 8-13kg
X-Large 13+kg

*Caring for your Wool Covers
Wool covers require some extra care‚ but don't worry‚ it's not difficult!
Baby BeeHinds wool covers only need washing every few weeks! (Providing they are not soiled and have been lanolised well enough).
When you change your baby's nappy‚ hang the wool cover to air dry until you next need to use it again (it is best to alternate between covers when using wool). The lanolin in the wool neutralizes the urine‚ meaning your cover self-cleaning.
You only need to wash your cover if it becomes soiled‚ stinky or dirty‚ or when it requires re-lanolising. If your baby is a heavy wetter with very strong urine‚ you will probably need to lanolise more regularly. We'd recommend lanolising about once per fortnight.
Baby BeeHinds wool covers can be machine washed‚ on the gentle cycle‚ inside a laundry or delicates bag.
Make sure you only wash in cold water using a gentle wool wash.
If you prefer‚ you may choose to wash by hand in cool water using soap flakes or wool wash (ideal). These are nice and gentle on the natural fibers of the wool.
Once clean‚ rinse well under cool water‚ lanolise‚ and then hang in the shade to dry.
Do not soak your wool covers in whitening or soaking solutions
Do not tumble dry

In order for your wool cover to perform its best‚ it needs to be 'lanolised'. Lanolin is the natural oil found in wool that helps to keep sheep dry in the rain. The wool needs to have this lanolin replenished every couple of weeks to maintain its leak proof abilities. Don't stress‚ lanolising is pretty simple and only needs to be done every 2-4 weeks!

Simply fill a bucket or sink with about 5cm of very hot water‚ than add a pea-sized amount of pure lanolin and mix to melt and disperse.
Once the lanolin is melted and evenly dispersed throughout the hot water‚ add enough cold water to make it cool
Submerge your cover into the solution and squeeze the cover to distribute the lanolin into the fibres‚ then leave to soak for a couple of hours or overnight.
When you are ready to remove the cover‚ do not rinse it‚ just squeeze out the excess water by hand.
Roll your cover up in a towel to remove as much moisture as possible‚ and then lay flat in the shade to dry.
Re-lanolise every 2-4 weeks‚ or when the cover starts to get a bit stinky!
