Summer wool for a summer baby?

I am soon expecting my second LO. We started cloth diapering our first after she was several months old and it took longer than that for us to realize just how much we LOVE the wool diaper covers (we had some Disana pull ons and some Babee Greens wraps).

With the new one we would like to use wool again but not sure what is best for a LO born in the summer. I know wool breathes but what style covers have you guys used on newborns in the summer? I still can't get the idea of wool + winter out of my head.

Thanks for your thoughts mamas!

Also, what do you guys like to do for night time covers / sleep sacks? I've seen the Lanacare and Disana sleep sacks and think they look so soft... but then again, I'm afraid they are too warm for summer.

Temps reach well over 100 here in the summer. Asher is more comfortable in his knit wool than anything else, I was very pleasantly surprised. I stick with knit wool, rather than interlock, when it is hot. The Disana sleep sack is definitely airy enough for warmer weather.

I agree with the knit wool. My DD had soakers and skirties and sleep sacks for her summer newbie wardrobe. She was born at the end of July, so it was plenty hot here in KY.

Re: Summer wool for a summer baby?

Awesome, thanks mamas. I'll stay away from the interlock then and stick with the kniits. Glad to hear the sleepsack worked well for you because I really was excited to get one.

I'm working with a $200 budget for diapers, covers, and extras which seems to go so fast. Now I just have to decide what to get =) Any suggestions?

Re: Summer wool for a summer baby?

We live in NM and the kiddos wear wool year round.

My son was born in July but I didn't get into wool until he was 5 months so if I had wool for him as a newb I would have gotten a lot of use out of:

knit soakers, shorties, & maybe a shortall or two and all in a dk, light worsted or worsted weight yarn. If your house is chilly at night with air conditioning then maybe some sleepsacks or sleepgowns .

Congrats and GL!

I used knit soakers and sleep sacks when dd2 was born in May in Florida. Loved it. Here's a nb pic for inspiration.
