Cloth Diapers in Summer

Fact or fiction? Are cloth diapers too hot to use in the summer? This is a question you may be asking yourself. I have wondered if that adorable, fluffy diaper on my son's tush is too hot when we're playing outside. The answer is...

FICTION! 

Cloth diapers are a great option for summer (or any weather). Here are some tips for keeping your little one's hiney from being too hot or sweaty!

Use natural fibers
Natural fibers allow for air circulation which will prevent the heat and moisture from being trapped inside the diaper area.

Try wool covers
When you think of wool, you probably think of winter sweaters, but the truth is, wool is great all year round! Wool is breathable and allows air to flow. Your baby will stay cooler in a wool cover. Wool is also more breathable than a PUL cover.

Go coverless!
Use a flat, prefold or fitted diaper and let your baby go completely coverless at home! Of course, you'll want to keep an eye on things. The first time your child pees, it will not soak through the diaper and drip all over the floor. When you notice dampness on the outside of the diaper, you'll want to change.
