Hello all! DD has always had sensitive skin...on and off diaper rash....every time we try a new food.....she gets like major red hiney!! We switched to cloth to give it a try. We tried fuzzi bunz first...sort of as a trial with cloth. We liked them a lot so we decided to stay with cloth.. Her skin seemed better. We have gotten some other dipes --- kissaluvs, sammys, and snug to fit. Now her skin looks AWESOME when she's in any of the fitted diapers with covers. But, now whenever we put her in a fuzzi bunz, her butt looks terrible....like worse than it did with pampers...she even has a couple of blisters. This happens within one diaper changing. The only thing I can think of is that fuzzi bunz are a synthetic fiber fleece and the others are all cotton fibers. I don't know if maybe the fleece on the fuzzi bunz are retaining something from the detergent or something. Any thoughts????<br>
Thanks!<br>
Amy

It could be that the detergent is building up on the synthetic material, or it is the material itself. Both my kids were sensitive to synthetic diapering materails- and some natural ones- regardless of detergent. My son is the most sensitive and can't wear clothes with a lot of polyester in them.

ITA with Monica. My DS has issues with the fleece inners and so we use them only at night or not even then much anymore. e does okay with clothes as long as they are less than 50% poly. DD on the other hand gets hives if she even touches any synthetics.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'm going to try to keep her out of synthetics. It seems it would be healthier for her to be in cotton anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
