I am totally new to cloth diapering. I considered it when I was pregnant but I was so overwhelmed with all the choices and didn't know what to choose.

My lo at 5 months got a terrible diaper rash, I am convinced because I switched diaper brands. It made me question what is in the diapers, which made me want to switch to cloth.

I now have a small stash which I hope to add to. I have mostly grobabys and LOVE them so far!!! They are soo absorbant! Hopefully I will not have any rash problems with cloth.

The only thing that has ever worked with Tatum's diaper rashes was Northern Essence! That stuff is the bottom cream of the Gods! Tatum was battling the yeasties for a good month. She was put on prescription creams and antibiotics and it still wouldn't go away. Her pedi even said she thought it might be a little staph infection. I finally grew tired of it and started using the Northern Essence Better Butt(er) Cream and wouldn't you know, it cleared it up in 2 days! Now I use Northern Essence at every diaper change. If we're around the house we'll also spend some time in fitteds or even nakey (that's Tatum's favorite!)

Our baby has a very sensitive rear end, we've learned (the hard way) what works and what doesn't. Our doctor started him with aquaphor our day care provider suggested California Baby products (which have been nice) and we've used Northern Essence Diaper Salve (which we love in the push up top!)

We use a lot of natural essences products. My daughter has ery sensitive skin and it really seems to help her.

Kelly said...

My little one does occasionally suffer from diaper rash. I have found that frequent diaper changes (like immediately, if not sooner after a poop), naked bum time, and when all else fails either Target's Method Brand of California Babies diaper creams. Both are cloth diaper safe, leave no stains and work well. I have had no repelling issues using these diaper creams.

Ashley said...

I just started cloth diapering a week ago, and got his first rash yesterday. :( I am not yet prepared for cloth rashes, so we're back to disposables and A&D ointment until it clears up. I can honestly say I miss my cloth and get sad every time I walk past it! I really need to stock up on some cloth friendly diaper rash materials...

I haven't had to deal with any rashes yet since I just recently started with cloth, but when the time comes, I will probably try one of the cloth safe creams or make some fleece liners.

MeghanT said...

Since I have started using cloth diapers, we haven't had very many rashes. I still use disposables part time so if we do have a need to use the rash cream, I use disposable diapers until the rash is better.
In the future I plan to use the flushable liners and Magic Stick when we have a rash.

Since I've been cloth diapering my second child since his second week of life I have not had to deal with much diaper rash (my first child was rashed constantly in disposables).

He has had a few problems, though. I bought some more breathable diapers with less of waterproofing so his parts get some good breathing every few diapers.

I also purchased some Tea Tree Oil and have been making my own wipes solution with a few drops in it each time-which has cut out all the redness he had ever. (: I also make sure he's good and dry before putting his diaper on him-sometimes using a dry wipe to dry his fat creases. (:

I've tried putting a strip of microfleece in between the diaper and baby, and then using Boudreaux’s Butt Paste...hasn't helped much. We usually just let them 'air out' to help...

I'm willing to try anything that is safe on our diapers (and my boys' bums!) at this point!!!

I heard that mineral oil helps with diaper rashes but haven't had a chance to test this out since my first is on the way this summer.

I know olive oil is used on the perineum in natural child births to moisturize and soothe, my midwife also said it can be sued for baby's bum...

My son got sick and then deveolped a HORRIBLE diaper rash. It was so bad that we ended up havin gto go to the clinic. It turned out to be a yeast rash on top of regular diaper rase and blisters and swelling. OUCH. Got a topical perscription so we used throwaway diaper liners (bummis?) in the CDs. During the day when he did not have the persription stuff on we used the northern essence salve with the lemon smell. LOVE the smell of that! I have also used vaselene BUT I have to use sposees with that since it would REALLY mess up my diapers I am told. This is GREAT giveaway!

Since I switched my daughter to cloth diapers I have had very few rashes and those all went very rapidly! I usually switch to prefolds when she has a rash because she is quicker to tell me when she is wet.

So far, we've not had any terrible rashes, but when her bum gets a little red, a little of the TTO/Lavender free NE diaper rash salve seems to do the trick in 1-2 diaper changes...

So I went and bragged that we hadn't had any rashes and and got one. UGH!!! So, I got Desitin but of course that can't touch my diapers. So, I bought cheap reusable liners (as in 20 for $10) at Babies R Us and put those in between her and the diapers.

Another thing I use to keep rashes at bay is the Cheeky Clean Diaper Area Cleanser (by Gentle Care)...I spritz it directly on my DD's bottom after a smelly diaper to freshen her skin and leave it free of bacteria.

I used to use the creams with the ingredient zinc in it (Desitin, etc.) They never worked on my baby, which is good I guess since you can't use them with cloth diapers!

The only times I wondered if my little guy was possibly developing a diaper rash I would try to let him go naked as much as possible. If we couldn't do that then I would put in in a prefold or fitted without a cover (or with wool for naps) to maximize circulation to his bum!

have dealt with diaper rashes since you started cloth diapering your baby? What have you done? What creams have you used?

yes we have had rashes , we used NE better butter cream and TTO/Lav free bum stick , as well as gold bond baby powder. :)

We haven't had any diaper rashes yet, but my little guy is only 10wks old. In the past, with my other two, I used cornstarch and it almost always worked. I didn't cloth diaper them though, so I wonder if that's safe to do with CD's? We also used creams when needed. I have some fleece ready to use as liners though, if we do need to use any creams.

We truly have not had much trouble with diaper rash since we have started CD'ing (2 times I think) and he is 10 months. When we did, I just cut up some soft fleece strips of material to put in each diaper. That kept the wet away from his bum and the rash cream off his diapers. I use Burt's bee's.

We recentl battled a bad rash, but then we found out it was a yeast infection so we had to get a prescription cream. I think it was called Nystatin. I was paranoid about it ruining my diapers, so I switched to sposies during that time (it was a long two weeks!)

Diaper rash was one reason we switched to cloth diapers. My daughter has had a few since, but not nearly like they were with disposable dipes. I like the California Baby calming diaper rash cream. It works great, and smells good. We have recently started using cloth wipes, and have not had any rashes since!

Diaper rash is almost 100% better today. I was getting sick of the sposies after a few changes, so I put him in some prefolds without a cover to let him air out. He also had LOTS of nakey time. I'm so happy it's cleared up, I know it can't be comfortable!

The only thing that has ever worked on my baby is Aquaphor. When she was in disposables she would get bad diaper rashes and that would do the trick.

Since she's been on cloth diapers she hasn't gotten bad diaper rash again, accept for when she had a bout of diarrhea! I occasionally still use the aquaphor if I see her start to get red, but I'm not sure how well it works with cloth diapers.

Dani said...

We use Northern Essence products now - after trying dozens of other products and spending tons of $$$. They work perfectly.

We haven't really had any diaper rashes.. but we used to use disposables at night and sometimes for outings and switched brands. My babe developed a contact dermatitis (happened to have it at the dr). It was bad and the only thing that helped was Lansinoh. See disposables are icky!!! We never tried any of the great stuff at Kelly's closet, b/c we needed something right away that we could get at the store!

We haven't had much in the way of diaper rashes....the few times that I've used something I used Burt's Bees diaper cream and put my daughter in a pre-fold just in case the cream left residue....One time I let her run around in just a prefold or fitted and changed it the minute she was wet to prevent more irritation.

Ugh. Diaper rash - my 11 month old has almost no problems in cloth - nothing that doesn't clear up with a little air. My toddler, on the other hand, has a persistant, recurring diaper rash that I can NOT figure out. We've tried extra air, tea tree oil in his bath (that seems to help sometimes), Arbonne diaper cream, Desitin, Calmoseptine... I don't remember what else. When we use creams we either use a flushable liner to protect the diaper, or switch to disposables. I'm reading the comments here for more ideas!

I don't have a blog yet - my email is musicmoments@iw.net.

Amanda said...

I have been cloth diapering for a month and a half and my daughter has had less trouble with diaper rash since we began using cloth. With disposables, her skin seemed to be irritated with the perfumes and chemicals in the diapers. Since using cloth, I only have trouble if I don't realize she had a dirty diaper and she sits in it too long. Then I simply be sure to use a diaper with a fleece liner to keep her bottom dry and also change her a little more frequently. So, far I have not needed to use any creams!

Startng out with CD, we had a little problem with diaper rash. I had left the doubler out & used it as a liner. We had actually used regular diaper cream & back to disposables. Tried a sample of Northern Essence Lav Free and love the smell & works great. Thanks to all the help & fast response of the CD whisperers when we did have the rash! Now we are totally CDs. No more problems or disposable!

I have also laid baby naked in the sun for a little bit with a protective cloth underneath which helps with the rash.
Now I'm thinking Northern Essence will be a great cream to try with the cloth diapers!

For rashes, I use the usual drugstore variety rash cream. I just put a flannel liner (same things I use for wipes) on the diaper. Never had a problem, even in my pockets! MIL used to use a disposable with cream when she was watching the babe while I was at school and the rash never cleared as fast as it does when I have to occasionally use cream with the cloth. Score yet another for cloth!

Since I have started CDing my son has gotten a diaper rash, it happened the day I put a disposable on him when I was going to run errands (I don't have a wet bag for when I'm out and about). When I got home I put him in a PF and it was better by the next diaper change! I'm getting a wet bag so it won't happen again!
