Are microfiber inserts against baby skin bad?

I'm trying out my new snugglebottoms fitted diapers and want to add an insert for night time, but almost all of mine are microfiber, like the ones that come with bumgenius diapers. I also have some loopy-do's, but I don't know if that's okay. I thought I had read on some previous threads that it wasn't good for it to be against the baby's skin down there. Does anyone know?

Thanks,
Sheree

Yes, microfiber can be very drying and abrasive against a baby's skin. It is NOT recommended to use it in that fashion. I think the loopy-do's would be ok, provided that the hemp is closest to babies skin. That said, I'm not sure that they would work as well as you would hope. If you have the room in the diaper, you could always fold up a small receiving blanket and use that - the flannel is a great moisture-grabber!

If your looking for a doubler that you might have around the house, you could use just about anything. My mom used to use wash cloths with my brother she would just fold it in half and lay it in.

I think the answer is....it depends.

Fuzzibunz makes trainers that have microfiber against the skin. I think that for some kids it is fine, others maybe not. We've never had a problem with it.

I have used a microfiber towel tri folded inside a prefold before. It's not an everyday solution and I don't do it at night when there is prolonged exposure. Neither of my kids seem to be bothered by it. It really does depend on the kid.

You could also simply grab a soft hand towel or old recieving blanket, cut it into rectangles and lay that around the microfiber. (The wrap around keeps them in place). It's thin and does the job.
