Today I’m reviewing a small company called HumBird, made by a mom in the Bavarian Alps, she’s been creating cloth diapers for 6 years now. I had the opportunity to try the Wool Diaper Cover which is an AI2 wool wrap.
This cover is super soft to the touch and stretchy. It actually fits both my 5 month old and my 2 year old. She states that it should fit 10 to 45 lb. and can be used as a cover or an AI2. This means you can put it over any fitted diaper or a prefold or flat. Or use inserts which is sold seperatly.
Wool covers are often priced quite high which can change our mind about purchasing them, since we are looking to save money when using cloth diapers. However these wool covers are super affordable, at only 34.99 US dollars.
Fun Fact: About wool, is that you can lanolize it and you can reuse a cover many times before you have to wash it. All you have to do is let it air out between uses and its natural antimicrobial properties act as a natural cleanser. This cover has great absorbency for daytime, I found that with the insert it lasted a good 4 hours. As for nighttime I had to use a fitted. The cover itself is rather thin even with one of the inserts, when used with fitted or both inserts its a little bulky but that is expected since fitteds are on the bulky side.
Overall: I would recommend Humbird wool wrap, its perfect for daytime and great for kids with allergies. I love how you can wash it in the wash and not only by hand.
