I have some ME airflows right now and am thinking about just getting some more of them but wanted to see if there are any better ones for summer nights.

I was JUST about to post this same question! I got a Stacinator fleece cover today and suddenly wondered if it would be too hot for summer. Good think I checked before posting!

We had great luck last summer with wool covers. We used our Aristocrats soakers all summer with no rashes, and DS is a very warm/sweaty sleeper. He usually just wore that and nothing on top. Wool is great, because it is breathable and wicks moisture to keep you cool.

Another vote for wool here. Wool is great for the summer because it allows air to flow through the fibers which cuts down on heat/moisture rashes. Wool is great for overnight because it both repells & absorbs moisture - no more wet sheets!

Wool is the best for all weather. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Much better breathability than pul. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Have you tried organic merino wool? Does the wool make the eczema worse? Or does it casue a rash(like a wool allergy?)

I really like wool for nighttime as well. We usually do a wool interlock cover because they are thicker. I have one from Bijoubabygear that I love. The Firefly easy wool covers also work great at night. Or the pull on cover from Tiny Birds Organic. I also like crocheted wool for nighttime. The Pickle Pants from The Cucumber Seed are impenetrable.
