My son wears cloth diapers simply because I prefer them. It creates an issue with fitting baby pants though, most current baby clothing lines are not made for bubble butts. Here steps in the timeless baby leg warmers! He can wear a shirt and diaper, and keep his legs warm.

Unlike the big name cotton leg warmers from the store, when wetness occasionally leaks out wool doesn’t freak out. The natural lanolin neutralizes any odor for quite a few uses meaning they won’t need to be washed unless actually soiled. (That’s one of the reasons wool is the traditional fiber in diaper soakers.)

They grow fast at this age, it’s quick to just make more when the next size is needed - or a pair for every outfit!
