Rash

DD is 3 years old and only wears diapers while sleeping. She PTed at 2 because she was getting horrible, blistering rashes in reaction to her poop that required oral antibiotics. We started using pull ups at night because I didn't want to wash such a small load of diapers. Now we have a new one, so we're washing diapers again. We are doing Bumgenious with hemp and microfiber inserts for nights. She's a heavy wetter and only pees while sleeping. It's been almost a month. She woke up this morning with blisters on her bottom this morning. Any suggestions before we go back to pull ups? I really would prefer cloth, but blisters are not okay. We also have prefolds and covers that would fit her, but she doesn't like the bulk between her legs.

Re: Rash

Are you putting the microfiber farthest from her skin? Maybe she's super sensitive to it?

I don't use those dipes so I'm not sure what kind they are but maybe a fitted-type with a fleece or wool cover would work better for her so the moisture wicks out of the diaper?

Re: Rash

why kind of blisters? I really love Grapefruit seed Extract to help with rashes. I used just GSE with distilled water in wipes solution. You also use used it in a oil (coconut oil, sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil) and use it on the bum before bed everynight.

10-20 drops of GSE per oz.
