    Default Sweaty baby

    Further to my post asking about using sheepskins in the baby's bed there seem to be as many no problems as no ways. Obviously I'm not willing to put my baby at risk no matter how small the odds, so now I'm looking for alternatives.

    My original thought to using the sheepskins is because it was a natural fibre and more comfortable during the night when she's sweaty. So now if its best not to use a sheepskin, what bedding can I use that will either absorb the sweat, or not make her so hot in the first place???

    She's quite tiny so she sleeps in a Safe Sleeper pod or across the width part of the regular cot.

    My DD is sweaty as well but really don't have much advice other than using cotton clothing and sheets, I also have a fan in her room which helps reduce how sweaty she gets.
