Re: Flats/prefolds aren't working out

I would definitely look into the detergent as being an issue. I think a lot of cd'ing rashes are caused by detergent residue mixing with urine / feces & sitting on the skin. I see that you've already stopped the prefolds. They are sized so you do have to move up in sizes to increase the absorbency or they can be really wet against the skin if they're too small. Adding hemp to them can help. By several months, I wouldn't think a prefold would work for night at all anymore.

Yeah I'm defiantly looking for a new detergent. I've been using tide free and clear liquid. I use gain powder on our regular clothes but I'm worried that might be too scented for LO. I don't like the liquid soap in my washer. I don't think it's rinsing clean even though I do a double rinse at the end. I'm thinking about buying something to clean the machine Itself. Before the gain we were just using cheapo detergent until I got fed up with our clothes smelling weird and sent my husband out for gain.
