You might want to take a lot of care if you're looking into bamboo. It's a rayon that is heavily processed. Oeko-tex certification might suggest it has less chemical residue. But for super sensitivity I'd suggest plain-o cotton.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't realize. I thought bamboo would be natural. I'm planning on having some GMD wide baby's converted into tinkle traps, but I'm looking for some other options that might be more absorbent without causing rash issues. I've been unsuccessful in CDing overnight or while in the car for multiple reasons and while at home I change very frequently.

I believe kissaluvs have hidden layers of microfiber too, or certainly once did, so you might want to look carefully at those as well

Why are they doing this too me:/ I'll check more carefully. Right now I'm leaning towards an organic Sandys to give a go. I really liked the idea of the contour kissaluvs being one size though. I don't need the smaller size right now though because my LO is 16 lbs.

We really like our organic cotton sandies, steer clear of the bamboo though, my sensitive lo breaks out in them the organic cotton are great though! And we like the standard cotton colors, so far no issue with those either also the small sandies last a long time, my 2 year old just outgrew them at 23 lbs.

Yeah I think I'm going to steer clear of the bamboo then. That's good to know about the sizing. My LO is 16 lbs now, but her weight gain has started to slow down now so the small would probably last us a while. If I got the large then her woolies wouldn't fit and that would be a big problem. I still use pul covers when I run out of clean covers or I need her to be 100% dry like in the car, but I know when I change her shell have a rash. I was thinking if I could find a better fitted then I could avoid using pul as my backup since its a guaranteed problem.
