Hi everyone!



I am new to cloth diapering and fighting a rash in my LO wondering what I can do for it. I don't want to ruin the diapers with cream. I have some that I am more willing to ruin. I made all the diapers myself and the early ones aren't as good as the later ones, but they all do the trick, so I am hoping to find a solution that preserves my diapers. So far I've just left him n**e for as long as he'll tolerate on a daily basis. Today I put cream on him, left hiim n**e for a while, and then put one of his first diapers on without wiping the cream off. I don't know what to do, I feel like it must really be bothering him. Should I change him more often? Would that help? I am tempted to use disposables, but they seem to just make it worse, and I swear they leak EVERY time he poops. Any suggestions would be amazing.

Have u used anything diff on him lately? you can sprinkle him with corn starch. You can try sposies with a good cream barrier I til it subsides some. How long have u used your dipes? Do they need stripped? You can invest in some cd safe cream. U can change him more often and do as much dipe free as possible. What are your dipes made of?

The diapers themselves have been gradually changing, as I've "perfected" my designs. The outer part is PUL, and the inner cotton, or a moisture wicking layer with cotton and/or bamboo inside. I think I have some corn starch, I'll try some of that tomorrow. The dipes are all fairly new, I make new ones every day. Some are up to about a month old, I don't think they need to be stripped, there is no smell and they are super absorbant still, I hardly ever get leaks. I don't change him overnight, could that be the issue? I like to breastfeed him and just put him back to sleep for both our sakes, but if that could be the issue I'll change him overnight. I do try to put him ind iapers with stay-dry linings overnight, but they're not always clean as I only really have enough for noe day at a time so I wash them every day. We'll keep going diaper free as much as possible, and I'll probably phase out the ones without the stay dry linings. I hate the thought of using the sposies as I am concerned that they are what caused the rash, as I had to use them interchangeably before I got enough cloths made, but I haven't used one in over a week and the rash is still there. Ugh, my poor boy. I need to get him a little potty and try to encourage him to go in there, and then leave him diaper free most of the day, whenever we're home.

I bought two of SOs Fave teams to try to excite him but he didn't seem thrilled. My feelings were kind of hurt :(

I would maybe get a couple alvas for overnight. They really seem to pull the witness away from them. My dd wakes up soaked but feel dry. It's weird. Or use the fabric they use on the inside and make a similar pocket dipe.

There are cloth-side rash creams you can buy. We've also had great success with the goldbond medicated baby powder.

Blueberry's hands down. Because I like AIOs that aren't fully sewn down so they dry much faster.

I agree with the blueberry/swaddlebees thing. I've only got one because I hate how long they take to dry, but with these you can turn em inside out and they dry much faster. And you can stuff extra absorbency in there if you need to. :)
