Fleece liners will definetly help with rashes for babies with very sensitive skin. They work by wicking moisture down to the diaper underneath while they stay almost completly dry. You can make your own very easily by cutting a piece of fleece to the size you need. No sewing needed as fleece doesn't unravel.
That said, I would not recomend using fleece to extend the time between diaper changes beyong 2-3 hours at most. The reason you're supposed to change the diaper every 2-3 hours is because that is what's sanitary. It's even what you're supposed to do with disposable diapers. Disposable diapers may not cause rashes if left longer than that, but there is still a bacteria build-up in the diaper. I've always changed my babies about every 2 hours when they were under 12-18 months and then about every 2.5-3 hours when they were toddlers. I never thought it too troublesome personally.....
