Diaper rash woes

What do you do to prevent diaper rash other than changing more often/changing detergent? Fleece liners? If so, what kind of fleece specifically?

Re: Diaper rash woes

I don't use PUL and I use diapers w/stay-dry inners of microfleece or suedecloth. DS almost never gets a rash now and I've had NO problems w/rashes from teething or eating solid foods. I actually dislike PUL now, b/c I feel it's over-hyped and caused me a lot of anguish when DS had a perpetual rash from it.

Re: Diaper rash woes

We use natural fabrics for diapers and covers (cotton, hemp, bamboo and wool) for breathability. At night time I will put in a microfleece liner as my baby sleeps through the night. I also use baby powder.

Re: Diaper rash woes

Once I switched to non PUL covers DD didn't have ant more diaper rash. I used the Niji cotton diaper covers. I only bought 5 and found that was enough with out running out of covers. All natural diapers and letting baby have some naked time will help too. You can use a fleece liner and cream for naps and night time to help keep baby dry. I love the GroVia magic stick diaper rash cream. It's cd safe and really nice to use. It looks like a huge thing of chapstick, you turn it up and apply.

Re: Diaper rash woes

If you want to use a fleece liner, it should be microfleece (the really thin stuff). We actually tried fleece when we first started CDing and DS it gave him a rash (I guess he's sensitive to wet fleece). He's better off without any stay-dry layer, and just getting changed more often, and using breathable (wool) covers. Also, a little naked bum time after each diaper change helps a lot!
