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'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.

We really like our organic cotton sandies, steer clear of the bamboo though, my sensitive lo breaks out in them the organic cotton are great though! And we like the standard cotton colors, so far no issue with those either also the small sandies last a long time, my 2 year old just outgrew them at 23 lbs.

Yeah I think I'm going to steer clear of the bamboo then. That's good to know about the sizing. My LO is 16 lbs now, but her weight gain has started to slow down now so the small would probably last us a while. If I got the large then her woolies wouldn't fit and that would be a big problem. I still use pul covers when I run out of clean covers or I need her to be 100% dry like in the car, but I know when I change her shell have a rash. I was thinking if I could find a better fitted then I could avoid using pul as my backup since its a guaranteed problem.

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.
