Athletic wicking material

We recently ordered 2 VBSN with AWM. After 2 nights my son has a rash. Do you think this is simple a diaper rash or do you think he is sensitive to AWM? Does anyone know if AWM lends itself to cause skin irritations?

Re: Athletic wicking material

You know, I've just started seeing a lot of AWM diapers showing up. I have actually ordred some Powerdry to try.


It could be a rash from the material. I would try leaving it off him for a few days and see what happens. If it goes away try them again. If it comes back, you have a pretty good idea.

Re: Athletic wicking material

Is this the same material that shirts like underarmor are made from. If so and I don't mean to cause a panic but they are not allowed to be worn by military personel anymore because they melt in a fire, which means they melt to the skin. Now obviously hopefully you will never be in a situation where your DC is on fire, but definately something to be concerned about. Again I don't know if we are talking about the same material or not, but I just want to put that warning out. Please check into this more.

It's the same material, but keep in mind that any polyester will melt in a fire, even fleece.

I haven't had rash trouble with ours here, but every kid is different. Do you usually use saty dry liners? The wicking fabric works great, but it does feel wet to the touch. Maybe the wetness is a problem?

Most nonflamable fabrics like most PJs do this That's why I don't buy those Cotton might catch fire, but at least it won't melt to my babies skin!

I've been readying lots of wonderful raves about this material for the inside of pockets!
