I have made a comprehensive pad care video that you can view on my YouTube page:
First, I wash the wool on hot. I then line dry it. I hand cut it to size, and professionally finish the seams with a 4 thread overlock stitch. I add a rebourne tag for identification. Lastly, I wash and lanolize this pad and let it air dry. It will arrive ready to use. It will feel tacky or sticky. This is the lanolin which serves as the waterproofing agent. Lanolin is essentially sheep oil.
I wait to lanolize this until it is ordered. If you prefer it to be lanolin free, please note that in your 'notes to seller' at checkout.
**Please allow 5 days for me to lanolize and dry your pad before shipment!
18x25". If you're planning to use this at night, it will most likely do well in a Moses basket or small bassinet. Possibly a co-sleeper if your baby is tiny and not rolling yet. (less than 3 months old)
This pad would also make a great elimination communication, or EC, pad for daytime use. When your baby is diaper free during the day, and playing on the floor, this would make a comfortable and natural play mat. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in liquids!
For urine or water spills, simply hang to dry. When dry, use again. If the pad is soiled with anything else, or it is retaining a urine odor, follow these instructions:
hand wash in your bathtub with a gentle lanolin-enriched wool wash. Spin excess water out in your washing machine. Lay to dry or hang to dry. See this video for further instructions:
Lanolizing and washing instructions will be included with you order, and will be emailed to you upon shipment.
