If you have a Ross anywhere near you, check them out. The one by my house had several of the lighter weight blankets, plus the little flannel receiving blankets.
My daughter was born in July, in Oregon, and we didn't have A/C so that wasn't an issue for me. However, being that we were up in the mountains, a 95 degree day would turn into a 50 degree night so I needed to have warm fuzzy sleepers, even in the middle of a hot summer. Now that we're in Texas, where the temps don't really drop, I'll have more of the lightweight sleeper stuff for this little guy. We do have central air, but we keep it set to around 77 as the lowest temp. That's cooler than 95, but still not cool enough for fuzzy jammies. Plus we'll be cosleeping so he'll be all nice and toasty warm.
