Re: Help me with this rash please!!!

Cut up some old soft Tshirts to use as liners. Also, if you have an old flannel shirt, or receiving blanket, try that too.

Try cutting out the CJs for a few days. My DD reacted bad to it. Within two days she was fine.

Or try a free and clear detergent and use the full amount for your load size. No need to cut detergent. Just make sure they rinse clean (no bubbles).

Some babes have fleece or suedecloth allergies too so maybe try cotton prefolds for a few days as well or flannel liners.

Fwiw flannel doesn't wick moisture away. Ive used recieing blankets as flat before and the moisture just sits there. Other than keeping the diaper cream off the diapers I'm not sure how they would help.

Great advice! Thanks! We've got a lot of great tips to kick this rash now I will let you know how it goes. I bet I am another victim of the new and "improved" tide what a bummer, it used to work so well. Has anyone used the powdered arm and hammer detergent? Is it cd safe?

Cool, I'll give it a try. I was instilled with "the fear" when I was researching detergents lol

Re: Help me with this rash please!!!

I use Calmoseptine Ointment for bad rash http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20
And it usually heals within a day or two.. CJ's doesn't do anything for bad rash like that..
I can send you sample if you like, I don't know how long it take to ship to Alaska though. The last time DS had bad rash, I use this and my BGE without liners and no stain..
Just PM me if you interested

Try dropps from Target. They work well and are free and clear. Honestly, I'd just put a t shirt on him and air him out. I know it might be messy, but his bum needs to stay away from stuff right now. You might try a little cortaide as I'm sure that itches.
