fleece collects static, and can shock them in winter. that's the complaint.

it's used for the insides of diapers, though, so I don't know that it' s uncomfortable, particularly.

fleece for snuggies, blankets, robes, hats, mittens, booties, moccasins, ponchos, dog beds, linings for jackets, jackets all by themselves, pants for daytime,....

I make the GK's PJ's from soft knits at Girl Charlee or Fabric.com.
Their mom likes them because they live in the south like you so they're cool, stretchy, and dry fast. One cute floral gown she was going to save for a dress instead, tied with ribbon waist.
Use kid-print flannels for around-the-house pants, they are warm for winters without being heavy or too hot like fleece. You can also re-purpose kids' sizes from adult XL knit items--I find men's on clearance at places like Kohl's, good stripes/colors for boys. Pants patterns without side seams go really fast.

I usually use cotton knits, sometimes lightweight cotton wovens for summer. My dd gets hot at night, even in winter, so I avoid fleece. The thickest I will go is a knit velour. Fleece and thicker knits make good robes, though!

I use cotton knit or inexpensive flannel. I used polar fleece once just for the bottom of my daughter's pj"s and she might have worn them twice they were to hot for her even in the winter.

I have a cousin who was badly burned as a young child so keep in mind that I've had extra, maybe overboard, concerns on this topic.

After being startled by some of the 'burn' tests of fabric samples over thirty years ago, I did some more 'burn' tests. (something you do to check fabric content)

I determined to use sleeping fabrics that did not melt. Maybe faulty reasoning, I don't know. I also strove to make sleeping garments that did not have excessive material and that would be easy to pull or rip off a young child.

I've taken the same approach with children's costumes, even using longer stitches to make the clothing easier to tear apart. But, still being careful that nothing comes apart on its own to create other hazards.

I'm not enthusiastic about chemically treated clothing or bed sheets.
