Reusable Nappies: What are Some Top Tips For Using Modern Cloth Nappies In Summer, Or In The Tropics?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

In very hot weather, some people worry that having a bulky cloth nappy, might make a baby too hot.  On the whole though, cloth nappies tend to be cooler, than a plastic wrapped disposable nappy.  Where possible, using natural fibres helps to regulate temperatures, while some of the very thin, modern, synthetic fabrics that are available are great for ensuring that there isn’t lots of hot, bulky material in the area.  A really hot day is a great chance for some nappy off time though, letting a bit of air get to a part of your babies body that’s usually covered.

Fiona from Darlings Downunder:

We asked our customers this question, as we’d had queries from mums concerned with sweaty bottoms as well as drying nappies in areas of high rainfall & humidity. We got a great variety of responses from parents with tropical experience which we posted on our blog here.

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

Summer is the perfect season for cloth nappying! Nappies are at times dry in a matter of hours in the summer sun, and there is no need to hide those delicious prints under clothes. If you are using a fitted nappy, summer is the time to leave the cover off and change when the outside is damp to increase airflow and allow those little butts time to breath.

Misty from FluffyBuns:

Go with breathable fibres, such as bamboo. These nappies are not waterproof but during the warmer months you won’t be covering up bub with clothes so you will feel when bub is damp. These nappies will allow bubs skin to breathe. Don’t forget that wool covers are the best covers to use all year round as they allow your babies skin to breathe and they help moisture to evaporate.

Jane from Little Bear Bums:

Use cotton or natural fibres as much as you can to allow your baby’s skin to breath. And have naked time too!!
