sbish OBF irritation from serging...how to prevent?

I have 5 sbish OBFs that I have been using for my son's nighttime diaper. He is a VERY heavy wetter and these work. However, I have discovered that my not-sensitive-to-anything son IS sensitive to the serging, and he more often than not gets red irritation on his inner thighs. It doesn't go away during the day.

I slather the area with CJ's before bedtime. Aside from selling them all and trying something else, are there any solutions anyone can think of? Covering the edges with fleece perhaps?????

I hate the stress of selling diapers, especially ones I JUST bought and have only used once...it's like pouring $$$ down the drain.

They will sell fast. I would sell them and get some bumstoppers drybums, which are more absorbent anyway. I had trouble with the sbish soakers curling where the stitching overlapped, which irritated my sons bum.

Fleece works well. Slather lanolin on the area he gets a rash and wrap the crotch area, the part that irritates him. with a fleece liner. We had this issue with our snapless and doing this kept his rash away.

I will try this first then sell them if this doesn't work. Thanks!

Sorry mama You may be able to trade them for some Sbish snapless since they don't have serged leg casings. I know they're not as absorbent, but if you put a third doubler in there, I bet it would be close. Hope you are able to get what you have to work!

Maybe you have already tried this...but wrapping a wide fleece liner around the crotch worked for us--turn the liner sideways and wrap around so that the ends meet on the outside of the diaper.

I dont care (or I should baby doesnt) for the serged edges either so I use snapless with the two included inserts and at night I add a GroVia stay dry booster. Add absorbency and I like having stay dry material at night since they are wet so long. That combo with wool works well for us for a long night with many nursing sessions.
