  • Anything but microfiber is okay. Microfleece or suedecloth is usually used as a "stay dry" layer on pockets or some inserts, with something absorbent underneath (MF, cotton, bamboo, hemp).

    Natural fibers can all go on the skin, but they stay wet. Some babies care, some don't.

  • Why can't microfiber though baby's skin? I thought a lot of moms used mf as the top layer to wick moisture away?

    MicroFLEECE is for wicking.

    MicroFIBER is very drying and irritating on the skin.

  • ahh, thank you.  That would be a very unfortunate thing to learn the hard way.
