Hmm, im not sure where you live, or if you have access to different kinds of bedding, but you could try news paper. Its not very absorbent, but it is much different then shavings, and may help with the itchys.
There is also pellet bedding that you can get. Its a little more expensive, but if you'd only use it in the babys stall, it wouldnt be that much of a differece.
There is also some kind of a, corn husk type bedding that I've seen. Its pretty cheep, and works well as far as being absorbant, and what not. But im not sure if its avalible everywhere.
Im sorry if I wasnt much of a help. Just some suggestions you may want to try until the vet comes out.
