|here is the deal. my dh and i are going to the new harry potter theme park and of coarse we are bringing our ds along. my mother is coming as well. my dh thinks that plastic diapers will keep my ds cooler than the cloth. he says this because the plastic diapers are thinner. what am i going to do? my dh really wants to put him in plastic that day because he says that will keep him cooler. i know different, however. last summer before we switched to cloth, we had him in ugh... luvs because they were the cheapest that we could find. luvs is made out of some kind of plasticy clothlike material that makes a horrible diaper russeling sound of the past and as soon as i put my ds in one, he starts screaming. i check him literally 5 minutes later and his diaper area was extremely hot to the touch and very very sweaty. this summer, however, his diaper area still sweats, but it is not hot to the touch at all. and he seems generally happier in nice soft cool cloth. i told dh that ds would be miserable in plastic, especially on an extremely hot day, but dh emphatically disagrees with me on that one simply because the plastic diapers are much thinner.
