help

Postby Moo » Thu Apr 07, 2011 5:39 pm

Girls I need some help. DD gets rashes so easily and now has a "heat" rash all over her body. WE took her to the pedi today and he said we need to keep her in loose clothes.

Obviously, I need to find the most breathable diaper they make. I really want to continue using cloth. Right now my stash consisists of Fuzzibunz and BG pockets, GMD pre-folds, and the Flip system with stay dry inserts.

I'm not sure if this is why she keeps getting rashes in the cloth. My instinct says no b/c the heat rash has just come on since it has gotten warmer and the diaper rash we've been battling for over a month. Regardless, it sounds like I need a breathable diaper.

What should I try? Fitteds? I'm new to cloth and have no clue.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

I'd give fitteds a try, you can let her go coverless at home so that will be more breathable. Do you put fleece liners in her diaper? This will help wick away the wetness from her bottom.

I second fitteds, but I also wonder if she's got a persistent rash if it might be yeast??

Nope, no yeast here. I thought the same but we went to the pedi yesterday and they didn't think it was yeast. He looked in her mouth for thrush and looked in her diaper area. I'm guessing that was a good enough check???? They didn't swab anything though.

So...as far as the fitteds and wool covers go I need some ideas. What brands do you like?

What kind of fabric should I go with in the fitted? Are there some that are more breathable?

I thought about doing a fleece liner. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks so much girls! I really want to continue cloth so I hope this works.

I put my little guy in a bamboozle fitted around the house sometimes b/c he tends to be rashy & the heat and humidity here on the coast is unreal! It seems to work for us, since the bamboo is supposed to pull moisture away, but I've never used another kind of fitted, so I'm not much help when it comes to others!
I hope you find something that works! You may want to give wool a try since it is so breathable too.
