I've admitted defeat against diapers and against toddler butts andn against moisture and against diaper rash. They have won and I give up. We are now a disposable diaper family. I still absolutely love my cloth diapers and would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to try them.
We have been battling diaper rash since about the day he was born. We have tried every single combination of diapers, wipes, creams and powders known to the world. We have tried changing his diaper immediately after becoming wet or dirty. We have tried baths and "no diaper" time. I"ve stripped the cloth diapers every which way. Offer up any suggestion, we have probably tried it.
I'm not just talking a little diaper rash. I'm talking broken skin and bleeding diaper rush. I'm talking screaming from the pain when he sits or even held. I'm talking horrible bouts of diaper rash. And nearly constant, at least mild, diaper rash for the past fifteen months.
We finally found a bit of a combination that seems to be working and we are going to stick with it for now and it includes disposibles. Huggies diapers, Huggies sensitive wipes and California Baby Cream - basically slathering it on at every diaper change.
I absolutely see where CDs would be great for babies with sensitive skin - without the added chemicals. But with William's case, he just can't have a drop of moisture before all baby butt hell breaks loose.
I don't know who is more frustrated, him or me. I'm just looking forward to potty training.....for real....
