Hoping someone out there has had some experience with this, my son's pretty irritated and I really want to help him feel better ASAP!
We use a combination of CD and disposables. He's a super heavy wetter at night, usualy leaks through 1 dipe a night. We pretty much can't find a CD that he won't leak through several times a night so he's in a disposable. Anyway, I digress a bit.
Our dryer's been broken and our apartment's too damp to use a drying rack or anything of that nature, so this past 2 weeks he's been mostly in disposables unless we can scrape together $$ for the laundromat. He's also learned to walk in this time frame, and as a result he's go some nasty chafing going on on the insides of his legs. I can tell it's sore because he's been grouchy the past 2 nights and he cries when I wipe him down (I'm using warm water & a cloth now but it still stings him, poor babe
) I'm also appling Lunar Eclipse diaper rash ointment. Should I be using this or keeping it dry? I'm trying cornstarch right now to see if that works a bit better.
I'm thinking of having him go diaper-free for a couple of nights but I'm not sure how practical this is since he's such a heavy wetter. We cosleep and I don't mind the bed getting a bit wet (it usually is at some point because he leaks) but knowing my child we'll wake up in a puddle and this makes him so mad! Also, he's super wriggly at night and ends up all over the bed, so I'm not sure how to comfortably waterproof it all...Anyone have any experience/suggestions for this?
|He's had little rashes before that have cleared up in a day or two of being diaperless during the day, but this rash really sucks. It's so persistent. I think part of that is because both kinds of diapers rub on the same spots and irritate him. I'm at a loss!
