Responsible Mother Wool Cover Review & Giveaway

October 14, 2013

Covers/Wool, Giveaways, Reviews


I love wool.

I love dry sheets in the morning.

Many of you would also love to have dry sheets in the morning but are intimidated by wool.

Don’t be!

responsiblemotherI have the perfect recommendation for you.  A wool cover that is super easy to care for, snaps on like your other covers, trim and bulletproof.

Responsible Mother is a company out of Lithuania.  You know, that country in eastern Europe north of Belarus and Poland.  Capital is Vilnius.  Yep, that one.

I’ve been blessed to discover many great European companies over the last several months, primarily thanks to my love of woven wraps.

Let me introduce you to the sweet Justina before I tell you more about her fabulous wool covers.


We are a family growing two small children (3 year-old Dominykas and 1  year-old Matas). Over the first pregnancy we already knew and believed that we will bring up our children healthily. Ecology idea is very close to our way of living and we also think the person‘s lifestyle should not harm not only him but the environment as well.

While incubating the ideas into what we are going to diaper, how we will feed our baby, we decided to use cloth diapers, to dress in natural fibre clothes (wool, silk, cotton), to use only environmentally-friendly  household, washing, cosmetic items, also wooden toys or sewn on mother‘s own. This is how “responsible mother“ was born.

Cloth diapers for modern parents who think different! That was our slogan while in search for textile, modelling, and sewing products. In the beginning there were just small orders for acquaintance mothers, who wanted to grow their children healthily, but after receiving positive feedback and recommendations we started working at full length. We offer you cloth diapers  handmade with love and warmth in Lithuania.

Every product is made by ourselves, from cutting to sewing. We search for interesting, colorful and of course high quality fabrics in fabric shops and boutiques so we have a colorful collection of cloth diapers to offer.

Shipping time to USA is about 10 days. One shipment was done in 6 another in 12 days.

Our products prices are very competitive, it ranges from 10USD for cotton cloth diaper and 15USD for bamboo or hemp cloth diaper. We have prepared practical and inexpensive cloth diaper sets sewn from cotton cloth (5pieces cloth diapers with inserts and moisture repelling panties as a present) such set price is 60USD. Also we have very popular wool covers with snaps for 18USD, customers are happy with this product very much.

Responsible Mother was gracious to send me a wool cover with snaps to try and is going to give one away to one of you!


A snapping wool cover has a couple of benefits over a pull up wool cover.

  1. Can easily be worn under regular clothing.
  2. No poop down the leg if diaper is compromised.
  3. More adjustable/wider size range

Lanolizing does not have to be a difficult process.  I suggest buying a spray lanolin (Scarlet’s Naturals Lanolin Spray is an excellent choice) and spraying it on the inside of the cover.  Easy peasy.

I’d only make one tiny change to the cover, add an 1″ to the crotch width.  I can use the Responsible Mother cover over big hybrid fitteds but it doesn’t fully encompass the diaper and making contact with the thigh.

That said I still never had any leaks.

I also highly recommend the Merino Wool blanket.  It is so soft and works great as a mattress protector! I wish I wouldn’t have left ours in Texas because Camden has leaks all the time! (obviously I haven’t been using my Responsible Mother wool cover *sigh*)

I have thoroughly enjoyed my interaction with Justina and I know you will be pleased with any purchases made from Responsible Mother.
