So like so many here have posted, my dd woke up with a rash. Not to bad I caught it right way and she has been diaper free since(We practice EC, too) . I am stripping her Kawaii's as we speak. Just hot water as the company suggests. Then some sun and another wash or two at least. I guess I will be picking up some disposables? Because I read that diaper creams and cloth diapers don't mix, right? Which leads me to my first thought. A couple of my children had eczema as babies so I am a very soap wary mama. I usually bath twice a week (and I use a very modest amount of "98% naturally derived" baby wash). For those of you who don't suspect your laundry soap (which I still do), what are you using in the bath? Maybe I need to get over my fear of bath soap caused rashes? Do you think mostly water baths are suspect for a babe in cloth? BTW I am ashamed to admit that my dd is the first of my children to be exclusively cloth diapered hence my need for more input on this. Disposables are an abomination :(

TIA

Solution! Cloth diaper liners. So the cream stays off the diapers, or in any event is considerably less of an issue.

alot of folks swear by coconut oil. It's ok to get on the diapers. It's just the zinc oxide you have to worry about.

We use Earth Mama Angel Baby shampoo and body wash and we love it. They also make a Bottom Balm for rashes which works really well.
