Re: how do you know when stay dry is the best?

A little bit of a barrier does help, like Melanie said!

ETA- wet cotton certainly irritates my daughter more than wet bamboo or fleece. OBF is my fave diaper material.
Hmmmm...interesting. Good to know. I rarely use PUL. I *do* have some AIOs..but those are mostly for DH and the like. I find it interesting that you're DD had a reaction to disposables..even when before she didn't!

ds has a bad crack rash. something in my bm was irritating him causing the rash when he poo'd.
hmm..maybe? I haven't really changed my diet. But then..I know sometimes reactions don't happen until later on...
