Bacteria issues- I think I give up! - Page 2

post #21 of 22

I just wanted to second the recommendation for Green Mountain Diaper prefolds, we use them and they are awesome.  And indestructible (we have to handwash our diapers most of the time--no washing machine--so they get scrubbed with a hard-bristle brush every day), which might be good in your situation if you end up boiling them a lot!

 

I know you hate prefolds but did you try using a Snappi fastener?  My DH was really dubious about prefolds because of the diaper pins, and the Snappi made all the difference to him.

 

So sorry you're having dipe troubles!  What a drag.

Boiling was the only thing that got rid of our stink issue.  My dd was also getting the open sore type of rash.   

 

After I boil them for a couple of minutes, I put them in the washer with hot water, and rinse, rinse, rinse.  I was amazed at the suds I got.  My problem seems to be detergent residue because I just stripped out the stink within the month and I still had lots of suds. 

 

My girls both react to it more once they're older and not even in diapers as much.  At first I blamed it on stronger urine, but she's been fine as long as I can keep them stripped.
