Need cradle cooling suggestions...

DD sleeps in her cradle for most naps, and the first part of every night. I've noticed that when I pick her up she's really warm. Not clammy, but the part of her that was in contact with the mattress is really warm. What kind of material can I put between the sheet and the mattress to safely keep her cool?

I don't know, but what kind of sheets do you have in there? I remember with my oldest (only one in a cradle) that she was more comfortable on the jersey knit sheets than the regular sheets. I had a hard time finding them, though. If I remember correctly, we got them at Babies R Us, but I'm not positive.

They are jersey knit. But, there is nothing between the sheet and the mattress. DD doesn't seem uncomfortable, but I worry a little bit that it's too warm in there. Maybe I should just get one of those small clip on fans and clip it to the back of the cradle circulate the air in there.
