    We have had a few BAD rashes….and we’ve used everything from Mylanta (yes you read that right..in original flavor, applied directly to the rash) to Northern Essence Diaper Rash Slave (which we love). Determining that our son had a very sensitive rear end was quite the adventure :)

    You know, I haven’t actually used any product on the VERY FEW diaper rashes we’ve had since cloth diapering. When they have occured, we just make sure to be extra diligent about keeping Sierra dry. That seems to have worked. They’ve all disappeared on their own within a day or do.

    We haven’t dealt with diaper rash since we starting CDing!! BUT…we did have an allergic reaction, which we treated with Vitamin E oil. We put a barrier layer of flannel between her and the diaper (which was recommended by our ped even with disposables).

  35. eidolons said...

    We deal with rashes in several ways: change more frequently, use bamboo exclusively (when the rashes are bad it seems to help), a bit of A&D, a wipes solution I bought from Etsy, and airing out frequently. Obviously we don't do all of these at once – that would be overkill. (:

    We go through bouts of diaper rash. I typically just lather my son up with Vaseline and put a fleece liner in his diapers in order to protect the lining.

    Almost 100% of the time, the rash is related to the inserts needing to be bleached. Once that’s taken care of, the rash goes away on its own.

    Thanks!

    So far, we haven’t had problems with diaper rash since switching to cloth diapers. We did have rashes occasionally when using disposables. We used Burt’s Bees products then.

    mjones_82 @yahoo.com

  42. Katie said...

    Sometimes we switch to a disposable and use diaper cream (Burt’s Bees) – and sometimes I just try to let her air out… also use a fleece barrier between her and the cloth diaper sometimes so we can still use a little diaper cream. I haven’t tried many other brands, but I’d love to!

    My baby had horrible rash issues in disposables! It was the primary reason I looked into cloth. Since switching, we have not had any problems with diaper rash! Of course, on Sundays we have to put her in disposables in the church nursery and even just a few hours brings the little red bumps!

    When I switched to cloth our rash nightmare ended….until teething came along. My DD has never been one to drool outwardly like many other babies so because of her constant swallowing of saliva she has gotten some pretty nasty rashes.

    The question is what cream haven’t I tried? LOL I went through about 6 different creams/ointments before finally landing on the Natural Baby Companies MAGIC STICK. (which is how I actually found Kelly’s Closet and this WONDERFUL blog).

    I have spoke raves about this stuff on here before and I will do it again. It really is like Magic. When I got it in the mail my DD had a really nasty rash that had been quite persistent. After only 2 diaper changes w/ the MAGIC STICK her rash was nearly gone and healed. I was amazed and relieved.

    I generally put it on at bed time to help protect her super sensitive skin from any overnight poo’s and if she gets rashy during the day I will apply it and then its usually gone by the next diaper change.

    (sorry this is long…I just love it SO much that I have allot to say about it…lol)

    The bonus on top of all of that is that you don’t even have to touch the ointment or touch their bottoms. You just rub it on like deodorant and your done. It also has a really pleasant aroma, kind of sweet and fruity.

    I have 2, one for the changing table and one for the diaper bag. They last a really long time, I bought mine back at the end of Dec. (I think) and I still have plenty left in both sticks.

    Oh and they say it’s safe for Cloth Diapers! What more can you ask for?

  77. I have dealt with a couple of rashes since we started using cloth diapers. California baby is now one of my FAVORITE and I have had no problems using it with my diapers. Unfortunately right now one of my boys has a yeast issue down there and I am having to use paper diapers to keep from ruining my cloth.

    We have been extremely lucky in the diaper rash department. C has only ever had one, and it was before we switched to cloth. Then, we were using Bodreaux’s Butt Paste, which worked great.

    I’m really interested in the Gro Baby system. I always hesitate with OS dipes. C is so big, they just don’t fit him for that long. he’s only 5 months, and we already have to use the BGOS fully unsnapped!

    I have seen a huge drop in diaper rash since I started cloth diapering my daughter. On the rare occassions that her fanny gets irritated, I simply let her wander around bare-bottomed for a while. The fresh air always clears up the irritation within 30 minutes! If I am worried about accidents, I put her in a BumGenius bamboo fitted diaper with no cover as that lets her fanny breath. I haven’t had to use any rash creams since I switched to cloth.

    I deal with rashes from time to time. Kind of a bummer because I thought I wouldn’t have diaper rashes if I used cloth, but my daughter has really sensitive skin so they were/are probably inevitable. Her rashes, I think, tend to be food related. Always after a bowel movement. She can be in a diaper 14 hours overnight that is absolutely saturated, and not even a little red. If I don’t get a poopy diaper changed right away, she will probably be red, and sometimes a rash. I use either Target’s Method diaper cream or California Babies diaper cream. I have read on other cloth diapering blogs that they are safe for cloth diapers, and I have had no staining or absorbency issues since using them. But I try to head off any rashes with frequent diaper changes and a little naked bum time so her tush can air out. I can always tell if she is going to have a rash if she starts crying when I put her on the changing table, and it just breaks my heart.

    We never dealt with one diaper rash while my son was a baby in cloth diapers- they were just totally gone! It wasn’t until he was a toddler and started having VERY acidic pee that we began to get ammonia build-up in our dipes. I tried everything and my only solution that mostly worked was boiling my dipes about once a month.

    Since we started cloth diapering for the most part we just use olive oil. I’m lucky that the baby hasn’t had any really bad rashes yet. We’ve also used Weleda’s diaper rash cream but I haven’t noticed that it really worked any better than the olive oil.

    Luckily, we haven’t had a diaper rash problem since we switched to cloth diapers. When we used disposables for the first 2 weeks, we used Method Diaper Cream. No complaints! Cleared up the rash and prevented any from coming back. We stopped using it when we started the cloth.

    Rashes…. oh man. My son is very prone to rashes. I think that cloth does help them, but if we don’t know he pooped or something and poop stays on his bum longer than a couple of minutes, his little tush turns bright red :( He has even had peeling skin, bleeding, and a huge open wound due to rashes. I fought using a zinc oxide cream for so long because I was scared to ruin the diapers but I finally did it. Usually, about once per week he’ll have a rash that requires some barrier/zinc oxide cream. We just put one of his flannel wipes that I made inside the diaper and lather him up with cream (butt paste or desitin). I haven’t had a problem yet with this method! And it keeps his bum happier :)

    Since we switched to cloth diapers for our 2 older daughters, the only time we’ve had any issues with diaper rash is 1. when they are at their grandparents, who sneak sposies on them and 2. when I use terry-lined diapers on my oldest (like the motherease trainers we have). In our first order from Kelly Closet, we received a trial sample of Northern Essence Better Butter Cream, and that is what I’ve used… it works wonders! I usually line the diaper with a cloth liner to keep the cream off the inside- and prevent buildup that would interfere with the absorption. Our favorite cream when we used sposies was Boudreau’s Butt Paste (I just think the name is funny!), but there really hasn’t been any need for any cream since the switch!

    My son does not get Diaper rashes. He has sensory issues and can be very wet down there so he has built up a pretty good tolerance to irritations. I do not cloth diaper yet I am hoping to start really soon. I cant afford the start up so I keep entering these contests.

    A good point that one of the nurses at the pediatricians office made was that before you put any creams or anything on you need to make sure the diaper area is completely dry, otherwise you will trap in the moisture!

    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!)

    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.

    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.

  196. 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. (:

    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!

    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.

  280. 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!)

    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.

    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!

  324. 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!

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.

    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!

Score yet another for cloth!

    Andy’s diaper rash cleared up when we switched to cloth. Before cloth it was a nightmare, constant rash. We found Welleda Baby worked the best for us. (That was 9 months ago) Just recently he got a fungal rash that for the life of us we could not get rid of. He went to the doctor 3 times for it and had bleeding ulcers because of it. He spent most of his time out of his diaper (my poor carpet) and used ever cream on the planet, both prescription and otc. The best thing we found for easing the symptoms were oatmeal baths. I blended normal instant oats and tossed about 1/2 cup in the tub. He was better so much quicker!!

    My daughter started getting mild diaper rash every time she pooped when she was 2 months old. I first used the typical zinc oxide creams until I discovered the Magic Stick. I now us the Magic Stick everyday and no longer have a problem with diaper rash! I was planning to try Northern Essence salve next time we run out of Magic Stick because of all the good reviews.

  383. Sara in Seattle said...

    Rashes are one of the reasons I think everyone should own at least a few prefolds. The minute my baby’s bottom starts to turn red, I find I can clear it quickly by diapering her just in a prefold (no cover) and letting her play like that in the house. The prefolds allow a bit more air to circulate, and they also let me know the minute she’s wet so that I can change her promptly. Plus if I am forced to use a cream, I’d rather have it be on my hearty (and cheap!) prefolds than on my expensive diapers.

    I use regular drugstore creams when the baby has a rash. I’ve tried a few more “natural” things but they haven’t worked. I need to try the Northern Essence stuff, I think! I’m not surprised he has so many rashes… must have inherited his sensitive skin from me!

I’m still trying to figure out what to do for those rashes, not to mention the eczema that seems to plague my children’s bodies). All I know is that I’m not supposed to use anything I used to.

    I haven’t officially started cloth diapering my baby yet as he’s not due for another 38 days (yes, I’m counting down already!). I have, ironically, gotten a sample of Northern Essence’s Better Butt Cream to try for him if/when he gets his first rash.

    My daughter was only cloth diapered at the very end of her diaper days and never needed any diaper rash treatments.

    I am relatively new to cloth diapering, about two months into it. I love it so far. I have not had any problems with rashes. When I used disposables I would notice rashes when my kids diet had something off in it or acidic. Tomatoes were the worst culprit for my daughter. She still has a little bit of food sensitivity with them. I think diet can really affect the skin so not a suggestion on how to cure diaper rash, but maybe how to prevent it. Frequent changing is also a great diaper rash prevention treatment.

    One of the things I do, that my husband actually started, is pat my baby dry with a dry wash towel. Sometimes I use the end of the cover I have laid on top of the changing pad as well. My baby tosses and turns so much it is kind of hard to let her air dry without pee getting everywhere! So I try to pat her dry real quick before putting on another diaper.

    I recently ordered a Magic Stick for the recurring diaper rash that my daughter has (she’s been teething!). What an amazing product! It’s in tube form, like a giant chapstick, so you don’t get it all over your fingers. If I notice a little bit of redness, I rub some on and by the next diaper change it’s gone.

    My son still has occasional rashes since we switched to cloth, mainly when he wakes up with a dirty diaper that he’s been in for awhile.

    We recently had a very bad rash which became infected and required anti-biotics from the doctor. I tried everything from yogurt to store creams before going to the doctor.

I stripped the fleece with blue liquid Dawn multiple times and can still use those liners.

At least cloth is nice and soft on the bum, even when there is a rash :)

    When baby starts to get a little red down there, it seems to coincide with the time of the month that the dipes are in need of stripping/disinfecting. I do the oxi-clean stripping and then use a tiny amount of bleach on just the inserts then several hot rinses…

  540. We haven’t had much diaper rash with our son. That said, we convinced our daycare provider to use cloth and asked her not to use rash cream, but she did anyway and it wrecked a diaper :( We had been told Burt’s Bees skin cream was diaper-safe, so we gave that to her to use if she really felt the need, but the info we got was evidently wrong, so now we’re down 2 diapers. So now she’s going to let any redness go and let us air him out at home. We need to try the Better Butter Cream!

  561. After fighting diaper rash since my son was in the NICU (for 52 days) as soon as we switched to cloth at home the diaper rash went away!

  562. I also follow you on Twitter

    I tried today putting a bit of shea butter on my son’s rash and letting it soak in before I put his diaper on. I don’t know if it works, but I’m crossing my fingers.

    using wool, especially overnight, really helps clear up rashes.

    I use a little extra warm water on my cloth wipes to rinse off poo and then dab gently with a clean prefold to completely dry the area before I put another diaper on. I find if I am too vigorous in trying to clean the area, it makes the redness worse (and it must not feel very good for baby!)…

  575. I now want to try the magic stick since its for stuff other than rashed also. This is such a great pack!

    Fortunately cloth diapering has been great with no massive rashes. If there is a little red I’ll use some Naturally Luxe Organic Healing Balm. It’s made with organic lanolin, a list of other benefitial oils and some lavender and rosemary EOs. It also works great on winter heels :-)

    We only get rashes when we use disposables– then we use Burt’s Bees, which works great!

    Love this package!!! Since I’m still fairly new in my CDing, I don’t have any tricks up my sleeve! I still have a few of my ‘sposies left, and so I switch back over night with my favorite “budreaux’s butt paste.” Usually by morning it’s clear, and we go back to cloth. I’d love to find/use some CD friendly products!

    I have bought something from Farmsteadorganics called Benji’s balm that is great at preventing diaper rash. Just put it on after every change and no diaper rash.

    I have also used Burt’s Bees. Does anyone know if this is safe for cloth diapers? (I have bought it because it is easily in stock at the grocery store)
