Bear with me I'm a newb! I am going to be making some pocket diapers. I was thinking of putting my layers as follows

Flannel (outer most layer)
PUL (second layer)
And
Mircofleece / Minky (fabric against babies skin)

Inserts: would be made from a combination of microfiber and flannel
Sewn together with Polyester thread

Do you think this will work? Has anyone have any experience with the flannel and PUL fabric together? Do you thijk there will be to much wicking?

What if you were to only use the flannel on the tabs?

It's where cotton meets wetness that the wetness wicks to the cotton on the outside. So, if baby wets to the edge of the diaper, and that wetness has a chance to touch the edge where the cotton is, it will leak.

Doing just the tabs in cotton may or may not be okay - depends on the diaper pattern and how it fits your LO. If any wetness can get to it, it has a chance of leaking.

HTH!!
