Hi y'all! My 15 month old, baby girl developed a severe blistering rash that turned brown and peeled about a month ago. I believe it to be because she has begun sleeping through the night again (with a wet diaper). What's throwing me for a loop, though, is that she slept through the night from the time she was 6 wks old up until 10 1/2 months and has been wearing cloth diapers since she was a newborn. Why did she never develop a rash during that long span of time??
I breastfed her exclusively for a year, and she has just recently started eating three solid meals a day, with breast milk in the morning and right before bedtime. Could it also have to do with the fact that my boobs are still getting used to the lack of nursing and therefore she is getting a lot more milk right before bed, resulting in a more soaked diaper during the night??
I switched her to disposables at bedtime and have been applying the ointment our holistic doctor prescribed at every diaper change, and it has been improving a lot, but I don't want to continue spending money on them, as well as contributing to the growing landfill issues, and most importantly, I don't want all those chemicals on her little bum! I mean, after all, isn’t that why we all switched to cloth?! ;-) I'm so glad to hear that I can go back to cloth diapers!! I had no idea that I could use a fleece liner to keep the moisture away from her skin while she sleeps AND create a shield between her diaper and the rash ointment!
Can someone please give me some advice on the technical side of this? Why the rash all of a sudden? And also if y'all could please recommend the brand of fleece liners you love and use!! I've heard good things about Bummis, but I would really love an ORGANIC material! Thanks so much!
