At night, I will use a sposie with TONS of Desitin. I have to put a diaper cover or wool over the sposie because it will leak EVERYTIME.

During the day, I stick to prefolds and put either baby goo bum (by baby carrot) or California Baby diaper cream on her. When she is at the sitters, she will wear a pocket but with an extra fleece liner - as not to get cream on the pocket.

The only rash issues we have had were due to food sensitivity.

I don't keep sposies on hand usually although I do have some right now. If I have them in the house and she has a bad rash I'll cover her in Boudreaux's Butt Paste and put a sposie on her. If we don't have any, it's one of the Northern Essence rash creams and her normal night dipe.

ETA: Ok, so that's my night routine. I wasn't thinking about during the day. She's usually in fitteds coverless when we're at home or with wool so she gets plenty of air on a regular basis. I stay on top of changing her as soon as she's wet/poopy and usually only use cream overnight for protection, not during the day.

Ditto. And dealing with this right now. I rinse, rinse, rinse, with plain water and give lots of air time (naking, running around the room and mopping pee off the floor time, LOL!). I avoid all creams and paste if possible, although at night I will use some if he's really red. We only ever use prefolds and fitteds, so we just continue with that- and a wool cover or none at all if he's wearing fleece pants.

Fitteds or pfs coverless or with wool if it is just the "too much time in a hot dipe" kind of rash. For the horrid unexplained thing dd3 had for the last 2 days, add in a Sunday spent stripping and bleaching all dipes and inserts.

For use on the bum, I like Burts Bees, London Frogg's frogg jelly an dNaturally Luxe's stick. All work great. I've even used Burt's Bees' Res-Q ointment on some spots and it also works wonders. I also put a velour wipe in as a liner and to be more soft on the bum.

that's what i use too. and no, i don't use cloth with it, i am way to scared of it ruining my diapers. i ruined a bunch of shirts when the boys were new. so its sposies for rashes for us. sometimes if the rash isn't too bad i use pf with no cover during the day plus lots of nakey time.

Re: what is your strategy when babe gets a little rashy?

I give him a bath and dry him well. Next time I wash diapers, I make sure to run an extra clear hot wash. Once it was bad and his skin was open (from letting him gorge himself on tangerines ) and I put breastmilk all over it every hour. It cleared up by the next day. I have never used desitin or anything like that.
