Hi everybody:) I was wondering what everyone's favorite natural fiber fitted and why? My LO has very sensitive skin and cannot tolerate synthetics touching her little bottom. Micro fleece and suede cloth=instant rash at our house:/. Affordability is also a big concern.

Also what else could I try for a stay dry liner that might now bother my little girls sensitive bum?

Thank you!

For fitteds, I love mother-ease sandy's. I prefer bamboo because it is stretchy but the cotton ones are just as nice. They come in organic cotton which would probably be nice for a sensitive bum.
They also have sandy's stay dry liners that have athletic wicking material as the top layer. It is a polyester fabric but I think it would work. If it didn't work, you could flip it to the other side & have an all cotton booster :)

I love Sandy's and MEOS too :) And you could try silk or wool liners.

I've read about a million good things about GMD workhorses. They are on my list to get so I don't have personal experience yet :)

I have a few workhorses and they are nice and really easy to wash. I currently use viva paper towels as liners because they are cheap and easy, but not stay dry obviously.

Love ours! Great day worthy diapers.they are not mighty worthy for our heavy wetter. We use bamboo fitteds at night.

I really love poppy fields! They are more expensive than some but they fit great and wash so well.

Pre-fitteds (like workhorse and tinkle traps) and Motherease were never absorbent enough for us to use except in a PUL cover, and I found that fleece or wool helped keep the rash at bay too ... I like Kiwi Pie (have 2 I put on FSOT today!) and some of the WAHM fitteds, and tot bots bamboozled fitteds, but I'm sad they don't come in snaps anymore.

I wish I could love Thirsties, but they have microfiber in them, just a heads up if you are looking for natural fibers, though most fitteds are natural fibers, the thirsties are not.

I'm interested in the Sandys. I don't have any bamboo either so I could try both at once. Do you have any experience with the kissaluvs fitted or contour diapers with hemp. My LO tends to be a super soaker.
