Poor you and DS
Yup I'm really hoping he grows out of it.

You are SO right polyester is in EVERYTHING. UGH.

I'm really hoping that once we see the Allergist in Nov that we'll have some answers.

He's only 6 months so they won't do the testing on him yet, which is why we have to wait till Nov he will be 1.

His skin is still that silverish thin looking and marks VERY easily when you touch him.

So I'm hoping it could just be that he's young still and so his skin is super sensitive.


After a night of rest and felting my FF cover it works. I wore him and we didn't have ANY wicking.

So I'm feeling a little better now.

I'd see a pediatric dermatologist as well. The silvery skin that marks very easily would be a big concern for me.

I LOVE the idea of the disposable over the cloth. That is BRILLIANT! Sure cannot hurt to try. Otherwise, I would leave him in cloth as much as possible for the breathability factor. Ask the pediatrician as well for tips.

There is no failure in not cloth diapering, it is just a matter of finding what works for you. I hope you see little improvements every day!

And to add one more idea....could it be that certain diaperes/fabrics hold onto the detergent you are using more? I'm new to cloth, so I'm just guessing here. Maybe a run through the dishwasher for stripping would yield some faster success?

One other thought for around the house is a tie nappy over a prefold. Isaac's been mostly wearing that during the day. The tie nappy adds the absorbancy of an infant prefold. Then you could put a cover on him when you head out of the house

Oh now that's an idea.

Hmmm I've been wanting to try one of those anyway.

I'm going to give that one a try definitely.

Re: Seriously thinking of just giving up!

what a tie nappy?

Sorry for what you're going through momma. My DD had some very very bad rash issues for awhile and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was causing it. (it ended up being apple juice for me, which she had for no problem at all for months and suddenly couldn't tolerate anymore)

I just want to second the idea of a PUL pocket/aio or cover with an acceptable kind of cloth on the inside and outside. That would give you the waterproofness of PUL w/out the skin irritation.

Are gerber pull ons nylon? Because if they were an acceptable material, that would be an extremely cheap way to test out that fabric and see if that gives a rash. I only get a rash with gerber pants if I don't change my DD soon after they get wet (because they don't breath etc).

Bummis are polyester.

The swim ones and the whisper pants though are nylon.

So are Dappi Nylon Pullon Pants. I like them better than Bummi whisper pants, and they cost less. Alexis snap pants often have too big leg openings for my children. We prefer the Dappis.
