Alright the durn computer isn't letting me search, so I will post my questions to you experts:<br><br>
Has anyone tried and liked using silk liners as opposed to fleece liners for their babies' bums? I tried fleece when ds was small and he seemed to be allergic. So I bought some raw silk ones to try for this little one.<br><br>
Also, what is your favorite wool cover for a NB? My last child was a slender 7 lbs., this baby looks to be measuring between 7-8 lbs.<br><br>
Thanks everyone!

I would never use silk on my baby. Silk is made by boiling silkworms alive. I plan on teaching dd to respect living creatures.<br><br>
We also care about the people who make silk. The silk industry is based on the backs of poor, underpaid labor in third world countries.<br><br><br><a href="http://216.92.20.151/discussions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=83488&highlight=silk" target="_blank">http://216.92.20.151/discussions/sho...highlight=silk</a><br><br><br>
These are the reasons amongst others, that silk will never touch our dd's bottom.<br>

I'm not sure who, but I remember someone using silk liners on their baby when baby gets rash and it goes away quite fast. I think she posts here, but not sure.

<a href="http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com" target="_blank">www.greenmountaindiapers.com</a> sells them and I think has a paragraph of the benefits to baby.

I purchased a pack of these silk liners (I think from smartiepants), as my son has pretty consistent rash problems and I was curious to see if the statements about them clearing up rashes were true. I used one overnight and it seemed to function much like a fleece liner, but I can't say that it assisted his rash.<br><br>
