Instead of thin solid layers, I would recommend thick shell (*ELEMENT_TSHELL) elements. Tshells have the 8-node connectivity of solid elements (but care must be taken so the element normal points in the through-thickness direction), but allow the number of through-thickness integration points to be specified using the variable NIP (like a shell).
