Afraid of Cotton!

I have been putting my DD to sleep in fleece jammies lately and haven't had a problem with leaking at all. I have cotton jammies too, but I am afraid if I put her in them they might be wet in the morning?

What kind of jammies does everyone use? She can't sleep in fleece in the summer! Should the cotton be okay if the diapers are working well?

She sleeps in a HH stuffed with one MF insert and one hemp oval. She is only 7 weeks old, but so far so good.

Is there a big difference between wearing fleece vs. cotton?

Thanks!

I use wool under cotton jammies and have had no issues

Thanks! I have been pretty happy with my pockets so far so I don't think I'm ready to try wool just yet. I will keep it in mind though if I have a lot of trouble with leaking!

Re: Afraid of Cotton!

We use both fleece and cotton and as long as the diapers are not repelling/leaking you shouldn't have any issues. The jammies themselves should not cause the diapers to leak or anything.

DD at almost 9 months sleeps 12 hours straight at night plus 2hrs straight for naps without any issues no matter what jammies she's sleeping in.

Thanks Kara! What kind of diapers do you use? Your DD does well in it for 12 hours? That is amazing! My LO isn't sleeping that long yet, but she is starting to go 6 hours at a time. Like I said, no problems yet, but I have yet to try the cotton jammies.

I only ever use cotton PJs because I don't want the flame retardant chemicals on DS' skin.

We sometimes have leaks, but that's usually my own fault for not changing him right when he gets up in the morning so his big morning pee wicks right out.

Re: Afraid of Cotton!

We use wool covers. There may be some dampness feeling to the cotton in the morning due to the evaporation and breathing that wool allows, but no leaks if the diaper is heafty enough. What about just a wool soaker with a long sleeve cotton jammie top for summer?
