Microfiber - Why not on baby's skin?

Hi,

I've been cloth diapering with a diaper service & am just starting to buy diapers. I bought a fuzzi bunz & a bum genius & my mom (grandma) started using them with the inserts just laid into the diaper instead of in the pocket & said they worked great that way. Most of the time just the insert got dirty. But I've read online that microfiber isn't good on the baby's skin. What is the issue?
Thanks!

i heard that microfiber is soo absorbent it can actually draw the moisture right from your skin
my poor dd got an awful rash a few times from this before i knew i was causing it
i usually use fuzzibunz and put the microfiber inside the pocket but i also have some gdiapers and had been using the same inserts up against her skin
a day or so after using the gdiaper this way she would have an awful rash!

Thank you. Kookabear sells inserts with fleece covers so you can just lay them in the diaper or a diaper cover. I'll have mom test those out, she liked just laying the insert on the diaper & the idea of not having to wash them all the time / just the inserts.

There was a post from a mama on here who tried to use microfiber as mama cloth and said that it caused pelvic pain. Here is the link

I can't STAND the way Microfiber feels on MY skin. I couldn't imagine putting next to my baby's delicate skin.

YUCK!

This is the reason I have ordered AI2s. I hope they work better for my family who keeps voicing this issue.

The MF on Kookabear diapers feels different, it is much softer and it doesn’t do that grabby thing on skin.
