I am wondering how many of us use fleece liners or pocket diapers lined in fleece at night. Sometimes I think I don't want to use fleece at night for the hotness factor and also for the artificial fabric factor, but I don't like the thought of him having a wet dipe next to his bum all night, kwim?

I do. If I didn't my baby would have a raw bum.<br>
I also don't like the thought of him sitting in wet diaper all night.

No fleece- if I did use it he'd have a red bum.

I did with great success-- except that dd ended up being allergic. Started using sposies so she wouldn't wake up.<br><br>

We use fleece at night because DS would wake up at the slightest hint of wetness if we didn't! Since he already wakes up 2-3 times a night as it is, anything we can do to limit that is a good thing!

Yep!<br>
I used to use Chumbas Fleece sandwiches exclusively for overnite for over a year, but got bored and switched to Honeyboys with a fleece liner.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

NOPE no fleece liner, I don't mind changing his diaper in middle of the night if necessary.

I'm struggling with this question also. This a.m. ds and I went to Jo-Ann's to get some micro-fleece. We got a nice sage green solid which I'm going to cut up and use as liners in his ubcpfs along with a hemp insert or infant pf and a wool cover. The fleece keeps him dry but I don't like the idea of a synthetic being right next to his skin. I figure it's better than sposies but if I had my druthers I'd prefer to use all natural fibers on him. We've tried various combos but I still have to change him at least once in the night tho last night even tho his dipe was soaked the fleece was totally dry and it wasn't even micro so I'm hoping the micro will be even better.

Yes, we use a fleece topped hemp doubler every night.

Yes, we always use them. While the concept of only using natural fibers appeals to me, the thought of my child steeping in his own urine does not. Urine is natural -- doesn't mean I want it next to my child's skin all night.

I sometimes use a Firefly Sleeptight with the included doubler (and no fleece) and othertimes use the ST with a hemp fleece-topped doubler. I'm not convinced that fleece liners actually keep baby "dry" and urine away from their skin. I think that babies have the same amount of urine on their skin with and without fleece, as that's simply from peeing, until the diaper absorbs the excess. When I rub him down in the morning, he smells faintly of pee with or without fleece.<br><br>
What I notice with the ST is that, like many good hemp diapers, the wetness is not on the surface of the inside of the diaper. The diaper is definately wet, but the inside is not soggy and feels dry to the touch unless you press on it. This is because (I think) the hemp fibers are absorbing into the core, not just on the surface. So it feels dry, at least as dry as fleece feels to me.<br><br>
I do use a fleece topped doubler if he has had any rash during the day at all (he's very prone to mystery rashes) because it seems to result in less diaper rash cream being washed off the skin. I don't know why that is.<br><br>

Yes, I always use a Fuzzi Bunz or Happy Heinys at night (with Joeybunz inserts). I also use fleece lined AIOs from Angel Wraps for much of the day. I think the advent of polyester fleece in dipes makes CD'ing accessible to many not-so-natural living moms like me who are not nearly as bothered by the prospect of polyester next to baby's skin as a wet, cold diaper, be it made from the most organic cotton or hemp in the world!<br><br>
