Possible to actually *ruin* diapers??

I think I have. : (

We have Bummis prefolds and BG AIO's. My son was mostly fine for a whole year when washing at home. I only had to strip them once. But then we moved and no washer so to the laundromat we went. Maybe 4 mos. washing at the laundromat and he kept getting really red on the end of his penis and butt sometimes. Once we were out of town and it got so bad it was blistered. Put him in sposies and 24 hrs later it was totally gone!

Since then we have done every kind of soak/strip imaginable. And now using a diaper service and they have done various soaks/strips as well. 3:1 vinegar soak numerous times, banking soda rinses, bleach, boiling water, sunning....etc. Diapers are definitely better than they were but several changes in cloth and he starts to get red weiner again. : (

I'm so so frustrated. We currently use sposies half the time but I don't want to. Is it possible that those months at the laundromat actually ruined the diapers?? I really don't want to buy all over again...took us a while to accumulate our working stash. He is soooo much better in sposies but I don't like it for all the reasons you're familiar with. Cloth is supposed to be better but it's not!!

I fon't think
It's the diapers, but
More your sons sensitivity has changed. Why not use liners and rash cream?

Maybe he needs the stay dry that sposies provide? TrY fleece liners over the pf.

But doesn't the fleece in the pocket diapers do essentially the same thing as a fleece liner??

I don't use pockets or fleece liners. However I would think they would work the same. Is it possible baby is reacting to the fleece? Can you try using just cotton prefolds and see how he reacts to that.

I would try a prefold (or handtowel if you don't have any) and lay it in the pocket diaper on top and see how that does. It could be a sensitvity to the fleece/suedecloth. Also, this may be tmi but it could be from his penis rubbing against the diaper when erect.

I'm thinking it could be a material sensitivity or needing stay dry as well. If you're using fleece, try suedecloth liners. If you're not using either, try adding one.

I have heard of some LO having a suedecloth sensitivity so maybe try cutting out the BG and adding a fleece liner to the prefolds.
