I would like to try a AIO or fleece diaper for ease of use. I'm now using motherease with wool cover, which are pain to put on a squirmy baby!<br>
I need something easier to use like disposables like Fuzzybuns or Bum genius. But can these plastic covers and inner fleece layers touching baby skin cause diaper rash? I can guess these diapers will be less breathable than cotton fitted with wool cover. Thanks!

They did for us. I love the concept of pockets and we hope to beable to utalize them partically with #2 but our first broke out with any polly fabrics.

It depends upon the type of fabric and the individual baby's reaction to it. Some of the more pilly fleeces might cause a rash, while others complain that suedecloth (not pilly at all) causes rash. I think you might want to try one to see how it works for you. Everybody is different.

Waterproof fabrics won't breathe like wool. And the lack of breathing could cause more rashes.<br>
Alos, FWIU, poly fabrics that touch the skin are more prone to detergent build up, which could cause rashes.<br><br>
We have some fleece lined diapers, and I am super careful to use a small amount of detergent, a little more soak time, and an occasionsla wash/strip with dawn to avoid build up.<br><br>

Hi,<br><br>
I've found that dipes lined inside w/polyester or that have fleece topped doublers give my kids major rashes...esp. my son who has eczema BUT my dipe system right now consists of fleece AIO's (fleece only on the outside) and fleece pull on training pants (again fleece only on the outside) and I've had no problem.<br><br>
In other words as long as the inner is a natural fabric...hemp, cotton etc...we don't get rashes!<br><br>
The fleece has been mainly waterproof and breathable and it's so much easier to care for than wool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">!

For me, one of the biggest causes of rash is leaving a diaper on too long - which can happen with polyester diapers because of that stay dry feeling. My dd isn't allergic to polyester, so we don't have problems there, but lots of times I have a hard time figuring out if she is wet in a pocket or an aio without sticking my hand in the diaper.<br><br>
I love the breathability of fitteds/prefolds and wool, which is why I use that system almost exclusively. We have absolutely no rash. I occasionally put dd in a pocket for an outing to the park, but it comes off as soon as we are home.
