3. FB medium stuffed with econobum prefold and hemp insert

We've been putting her in disposables (with fleece liners) to keep the leaks down, but we hate doing that. I understand that some people might suggest fitteds, but I'm worried about the amount of wetness touching her skin - she's sensitive and even a tiny bit of wetness gives her blistering and bleeding diaper rash. In the leaking diapers she gets redness and blisters on her tummy and thighs shen it leaks onto her clothes. Are there fitteds that are all-over staydry?

Please help. My LO is turning red all over from the wet diapers. In the disposable it's a bit better, but the fleece liners shift around in there and she still gets patches of nasty redness if the diaper touches her skin.

Thanks for your help.
When your LO wakes up, are the inserts sopping wet? I've found that if I stuff too much into a pocket, then DS will leak. If I stuff less, he won't. It's like wringing out a washcloth - all the extra pressure forces out the liquid, if that makes sense. It's worth thinking about, anyway.

There are fitteds with stay-dry inners. We have used GAD pocket fitteds at night with DS for the last 8ish months, and have never had a leak with them. We stuff with a Thirsties hemp prefold, Flip Organic, or Babykicks hemp prefold, then use Thirsties, GAD, or Bummis covers.
