Using cloth nappies in hot weather

Parents are often concerned about using cloth nappies in hot weather, or in the summer.  They worry that babies will become too hot in bulky nappies, and become uncomfortable. How can you ensure that your baby does not over heat? What kind of nappies are best when it is hot?

Why are cloth nappies good when it’s hot?

Although cloth nappies look thick and bulky, in actual fact they are a cooler option than disposable nappies.  Disposable nappies contain a plastic layer, which actually increases the baby’s temperature.  Cloth nappies are usually made from natural fabrics that are breathable, helping your little one stay cool when it is hot.  Even though PUL has a waterproof coating, it is still more breathable than the plastic in disposable nappies.

Another alternative to ensure that the nappy is even more breathable is to use a cotton nappy with a woollen cover.  The wool actually helps your baby to maintain their body temperature and not become too hot.  If hot at night a woollen cover can be ideal to help keep them cool in summer and warm in winter.
