Diapering > Solution for super sensitive skin + skinny legs!?

Ds2 has super, super sensitive skin. From what we've tried (cotton PF, fitteds in all sorts of materials, fleece & suedecloth pockets) it seems he needs to have hemp against his skin. The problem I'm having is the only hemp I have need covers, and they all seem to irritate his legs. I mean his poor legs are all chafed, red, etc. (the same way his butt is when he wears anything other than hemp)

So is there a cover with gentle leg openings that fits a long, skinny babe well? Or, does anyone make a pocket dipe with a hemp inner & waterproof outers? Maybe I need a hemp AIO? (But I hate the drying time involved in that) Please help...suggestions? Thank!

I just saw a hemp AIO on Ebay...made by Baby-U-Wraps, I think.

We use nylon covers here My DD is way to sensitive to fleece and wool and pull irritates her. I LOVE my cloth ez side snap covers there good for her slend er legs non binding and wash up great.

Good ideas, thank you. Those EZ covers look nice. Anyone else have a suggestion? I don't want to invest in a bunch of different things to try. I feel so bad for ds with his irritated little legs.

Maybe a combination of a hemp fitted with a Stacinator So Simple cover would work?
