I feel sooo bad. my ds who is 4 still pees at night so i have him in motherease overnight dipes. seems like i'm always having issues w/ buildup on his. but this morning was the worst! his whole diapered area is bright burning red
and when i picked up the diaper to go rinse it, it was so strong smelling, it burned my nose and eyes
. i just feel terrible and frustrated. i switched back over to cloth for him cuz i couldn't find and sposies that wouldn't leak (i cded him during the day til he potty learned). but now this is worse.
i've stripped them a ton but we have a front loader and i really think that is the problem (and i think his pee is very strong)

sorry this is such a rant....i just don't know what to do

When my dd started sleeping through the night, we'd get a bright red bum & strong smelling dipe in the a.m. and the only thing that really helped (no cream or whatever that I tried did anything) was a morning bath with some baking soda. Could be worth a shot too?

i'm pretty anti bleach but have been seriously considering it. i'm just worried about the pul that covers the dipe (it's all one thing). will that ruin the pul?

We have this problem too. It only seems to happen with our prefolds. Stripping didn't help us either. It is ammonia burn. I have switched to primarily fuzzi bunz at night, but when I use prefolds I have started using fleece liners, which keep the urine off their skin, and then bathing them in the morning.
