Just wondering how much a (POLY) fleece liner really helps or doesnt help as far as in preventing diaper rash. I always used Fuzzi Bunz at night but tonight all my fuzzi bunz were dirty so I put a hemp diaper on my son instead and now I'm all worried. :LOL

Hmmm, I only sometimes use fleece, maybe 1/2 of the time. The only time ds has a rash is when he is getting a UTI or on antibiotics for one.

What about sometimes use fleece? LOL<br><br>
Actually I use less and less fleece now, when we did I would get rashes sometimes, due to build up, fleece holds the build up against the skin, so it is great if it is well rinsed however can be big problems if not rinsed good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Anyway we hardly ever use fleece anymore and we hardly ever have rashes, if we do it is due to teething/acid poop. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Ok well we almost always use fleece....but NOT the fleece you are talking about. We never use poly fleece. But all my diapers/doublers have hemp/cotton blend fleece and/or organic cotton fleece <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Sortof a little pet peeve of mine that it's become common thought that "fleece" means poly fleece.<br><br>
Anyway...we had lots of rashes in the early days when the baby poops every five minutes, but that cleared when we switched to wool.<br><br>
So in my experience it was more about the type of covers and the breathability.

I can understand that peeve, but I think that talking about it in that way sounds kind of snobby. I'm sure you didn't mean for it to sound that way- it just took me off guard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Anyway, we use poly fleece occasionally, but mostly cotton or hemp and dd never ever ever gets a rash.<br>

Wow .....no Lauren I didn't mean for it to sound snobby at all!<br><br>
So sorry you took it that way.<br><br>
We don't use poly fleece because it irritates us. But we do use other fleece so I wanted to answer the poll honestly and explain.<br><br>
And my comment about it being a pet peeve that it's become common place to think of "fleece" as polyester...is just that. I think that many people don't realize that there many different fleece out there (I think this because I'm on sewing lists and it comes up often that there is confusion about this)

Oh, I totally understand what you mean, it comes up for me a lot too. When dealing with business I tend to label all fleeces myself, I just meant in light of the first part of your post, the second came off worng. That's all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
