Help! Need breathable dipes!

Until recently, we've mostly used FB and SB pockets - and they've worked great for us, but now that the weather is hot, they arent' working. They're getting to warm, and they just don't let DD's bum breath enough. She's teething, which is giving her a bit of a rash, and in the PUL dipes, the rash just doesnt' get better. When I put her in wool, the rash clears up quickly.

So I need to find something better for night-time diapering. I'm not worried about the day, because when it's warm I let her go nakey-butt, or with fitted and no cover. But at night we need something. I want to get away from PUL. I only have one wool cover that's good for night, but no good night-time fitteds. I did just get a couple of Liz's Cloth AIO for night - and they are great, but her store is closed and I can't get more.

What do you experts suggest for a good breathable night-time solution?

Re: Help! Need breathable dipes!

I really like my lullaby diapers fitteds
and Valor Kids fitted with bkt
I usually throw a microfiber towel under the doubler, and that works pretty well.
I also use fitted premium prefolds I made into pockets, stuffed with a microfiber towel.
It's really easy to make recycled wool pull up covers. That is what we use at night. Thriftstore sweater, felted, then lanolize it after you make it. Works great and really cheap. There are instructions in the craft forum.
