Annie Marie Padorie. Applecheeks would work the same as well. They are both pockets with a fleece inside instead of microsuede.

I think AMP and AppleCheeks have the same design. The ruffled elastic legs are so soft!

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

My son always had a rash of some sort until we stopped using synthetic materials next to his skin. Now with natural fibres he's fine! We use bamboo or hemp boosters when we need extra absorbency. We had similar problems with our Flip covers too, so we just don't use them unless we run out of our Simplex dipes (no elastic casings around the legs to irritate his skin and the natural fibres have been wonderful - no repelling or build-up problems).

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

I'm dreading a switch from PFs and covers to pockets. Seems like a huge expense. Does anyone have suggestions for covers in which the PUL doesn't touch the skin? I know I've seen them somewhere but can't think of the names now....

Also, it seems like most of the pocket diapers (Fuzzibunz, BG, etc) have the inner fleece layer all the way out to the leg ruffles so the PUL doesn't directly touch the skin. Is that true? If so, what's special about Applecheeks and AMP?

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

We have a rash that comes and goes on my DD, almost 9 months now. It is on her inner thigh, and only on one side so I think somehow her skin got sensitized at some point. I'm playing around with different diapers to see what triggers it- just pulled out my bsww covers to try instead of flips which had been my go to diaper. We're all cotton (flats, prefolds, BG organics), and most of the time it works so I'm sticking with it. I just use a little triple paste when she starts to look red. Love that stuff!

eta I think stacinator so simple have nice fleecy leg openings.

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

Just to throw this out there, I was having major rash problems and turns out it was the Tide and the fact that my front loader wasn't rinsing the detergent all the way out. Stripped the diapers, changed to country save, and added more rinses to my wash routine and we are rash free.

I am in a similar situation. Have tried natural fibers and microfleece. Today my daughter went to the pediatrician and has a yeast rash which the doc said was due to moisture. I keep having to buy more sposies just to be able to apply creams. I'm thinking I should just stick to sposies. Sigh.

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

is the diaper detergent different than baby clothes? Could it be a sensitivity to that? Could be minor buildup in general.

Re: Please help me stay with cloth! (or, diaper rash woes)

Using Lanisoh as a barrier cream could help a ton, and it's cloth diaper safe (it dissolves in warm water).

You might need breathability ... fleece is a low-maintenance alternative to wool. PUL isn't really very breathable.

BG pockets, at least the older ones, don't have PUL against the skin the way the Flips do. It's the microsuede inner that mostly touches the skin. You might look for some of those on FSOT.

Doing 2 layers of microfleece might make the problem worse ... It takes time for moisture to penetrate fleece and other "stay dry" fabrics, so putting 2 layers might be subjecting your LO to a puddle while it soaks in. Better to add more absorbency, that's the only thing that keeps the moisture from soaking back through the fleece.

When we get rashy stuff around the legs it's usually a detergent issue, solved by switching to Country Save or Biokleen liquid. Soap-based detergents and Tide are our worst offenders.

Green Acre Designs makes pocket diapers that keep fleece against the skin around the legs, too. They have PUL or fleece outers, with fleece inners.
