We always used wool covers at night. I was wondering if baby gets "hot" in that non-breathable way from a Happy Heiny or Fuzzi Bunz?

What is your experience?

I know my kids got hotter in PUL covers than wool- so I guess they'd be hotter in pocket dipes, too. Wool seemed to be the coolest in my non-scientific test of sticking my hand inside the cover in the morning.

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right

Okay, this was of concern for me with Kenny a while back b/c in his size Small FBs his scrotum seemed to be low when I changed him and there was a lot of heat. I have since learned that when relaxed a boy's scrotum will drop anyway . . . so that was a relief to know. There is a difference in heat though.

When Kenny goes to bed in cpfs and a wooly wonder or a fuzbomb I find that his skin is cooler, but clammier b/c of the moisture that touches him on the cpfs.

When Kenny goes to bed in a HH or an FB, his skin is not clammy, but is a bit more hot.

So, there is a give and take there, but I wouldn't think that there is a huge difference, though there IS a slight difference.

It hasn't been a problem and we use Happy Heiny's at night. I think because of the microfleece, dd's bottom seems so dry and cool in the am. It's usually cool here at night anyway, except this week! Cpfs under PUL seem to get much hotter. Haven't tried wool at night yet so I can't compare.

I've gotta say for us that the PUL pocket diapers make ds too hot for my taste. I've since switched him to only all-fleece pocket diapers or the beloved .

It's just my personal preference though.

and that is why I use wool at night, well I use wool all the time now but I did use pul sometimes. Just now wool comes in every size, style and with all kinds of cuteness on the bum of them so I use wool. He never has a hot bottom with wool but with a fuzibunz or a pul diaper he does. Do not use them much but he does get hot!

I haven't tried wool at night, but when dd wears her wool during the day when I change her she is usually soaked in her FB's and HH's she is usually dry (and I keep her in the HH/FB for usually 4 - 5 hours). She only wears pocket diapers to sleep and she never wakes up sweaty or too hot IMO (and I live in a HOT climate).

I'm thinking they have to be hotter. My son had a rash for months until I stopped putting him in anything with PUL.

Henry wears only pocket dipes & NEVER EVER has a rash or anything. I guess on a hot day his bum may be warm, but with wool, I had to have triple the bulk so I imagine that was hot also.
For me, the rash free, leak free system has become the priority so it's whatever is important to you.
