Help!!! Sore bum!

Hey everyone, we are new to CD, only three weeks in! My DD has had such a sore bum for about a week now, I am considering switching back to disposables. Does anyone have any advice?

Re: Help!!! Sore bum!

my DD did it too when we switched at 3wks, and my BFs LO did too- what we found was b/c the cloth is less absorbant than sposies. You need to change them way more frequently, and use some petrollium jelly over the reddened area to protect from more moisture. Eventually your LO will grow accustomed to being more moist, but you need to remember that CD are not as absorbant as sposies, and like after they eat, they should be changed. Hope this helps
