Re: Yeast vs. Amonia

Honestly I finally switched DS to nature babycare disposables at night a few months ago (he is 3 yrs 4 months old) because his pee is so strong he was getting horribly irritated. My final straw was when one of his rashes resulted in open sores that ended up becoming a bacterial infection that required antibiotics. Sad because we never had night leaks in cloth but we sometimes get them in disposables. For me I know it wasn't a buildup issue or anything to do with the diapers because ds and ydd share diapers and she gets no irritation at night.

You're welcome! Yes coconut oil is 100% CD safe. I've used so many products with sensitive DS#1 and coconut oil worked quicker and better than everything for us. Plus it doesn't burn when you put it on them. My son calls it tickle cream :-)

Another thing you could try us oxy/vin. The thread was just bumped recently. I've never tried it but it sounds like it works really well!

Re: Yeast vs. Amonia

I just don't think they are getting fully clean and the night diapers are on longer so they are exposing the problem. I find that for a lot of people Charlie's just stops working after a while. Also it causes rashes for some children. I would pick up something at the store like Tide or Gain if you can. If not I would use more Charlie's and bleach every wash, covers included. In the meantime I would try a probiotic added to his diet, coconut oil and lots of air. A fleece liner at night would probably be good as well.

I agree with this. I used Charlie's and loved it for the first 6 months of DD's life. Then I battled recurring yeast for the next 6 months until my mom finally convinced me to switch to Tide when DD was about 13 months. The yeast rash went away that week and hasn't been back. I'd tried all kinds of bleach, using more Charlie's, less Charlie's, GSE, oxy, etc. Tide was cheaper and it worked SO much better for us.

Re: Yeast vs. Amonia

We were getting irritation at night and it has went away completely by using a stay dry inner. We had been using a flannel pocket at night stuffed with 1 hemp and 1 cotton insert and a fleece cover. I switched to a pocket with a micro-minky inner and 2 microfiber inserts with a fleece cover and now we have no irritation and while his pee still stinks in the morning, it does not smell like ammonia. I even tried putting the hemp in the minky dipe and while the irritation didn't come back, the ammonia smell did. Our hemp inserts do not stink during the day ever, just if he wears one overnight and they have been bleached so I think it's just because it doesn't absorb as quickly for us. All my dipes, covers, etc are made by me so no specific brand or anything, I just changed up the materials for night time.

Re: Yeast vs. Amonia

My plan is to get a couple of pockets made this weekend. Right now I'm using up some old disposable gdiaper inserts inside our covers and going to try to get the problem cleared up before I put him back in the cloth. I want to start fresh and I want to get him healed. I have some sun free and clear that I can try with the next wash cycle. I think that a stay dry liner or a pocket with a stay dry inner will help some (or I am really hoping) along with getting the bad out of the diapers. Also going to slather him in coconut oil when he wakes up from his nap! Here's hoping for a soon to be blister and irritation free little boy!

I just soaked them in Charlies and bleach for a few hours so I am hoping they come out nice and clean and all the germs are gone.

I appreciate all of you guys' help! I thought I had it figured out the first go around lol
