This, I had the same problem with hemp inserts I use at night. About to switch to tide F&G powder to see if that helps.

You might want to try extra lenses at the end of your washing cycles, even after you finished off the cycles, because maybe all of the detergent is not coming out. That could also cause rashes on a little ones bum. Oatmeal baths really help, you can add some milk to the bath as well to help calm skin irritation.

I have read that making your own detergent, for most of the recipes that I have seen anyway, are not appropriate for cloth diapers because they they break down the fibers or they coat the diapers and make them leak or affect the absorbency.

Thanks again for all the advice! I did an oatmeal bath tonight so I hope that helps

In the end, I think I was too quick to assume it was the diaper, I got incredibly sick the day after I wrote this post and it wasn't until talking to another mom that I started processing all the changes recently, ESP that of more bowl movements... I'm pretty certain the rash is a result of the cold.

It hasn't gotten any better yet, today I changed the diaper cream and brand of disposables as well as did an oatmeal bath and naked tummy time (lol). He's still having several bm a day so I know I'm fighting an uphill battle. Despite all this, he is completely unphased, he's happy, acting normal, lots of energy, and doesn't complain about diaper changes.

All that said, I'm going to add more rinses to the inserts AND add a third for night.
Thanks again!! I am beyond thankful for all the helpful mamas. This is such a great supportive community
