We just switched back to mostly pocket diapers (Fuzzi Bunz and Bumgenius, mainly) for ds, and I wanted to double-check and make sure the rash cream I'm using is okay. It's a homemade salve using mango butter and other oils. Is this probably okay on the fleece? Ds doesn't have a full-blown rash but does have a couple of places where he scratched and made himself bleed (I think he got some dirt in his diaper when playing outside and got irritated and then made it worse).<br><br>
He's waking up crying at night when he pees so I'm thinking maybe we need a thicker cream for nighttime. Any particular brands that are okay with FB and other pockets? I've used Butt Paste in the past and liked that. Is it okay? (I don't care about stains but don't want to cause the fleece to repell).<br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I always put in a fleece liner (just cut a strip of fleece) when I had to use diaper cream with our fuzzi bunz. Not worth the risk of future repelling (or any other issues) to me since the liner solution was so easy.<br><br>

I agree... the better way to go is get what you need for diaper cream, then just use a liner to protect the diaper from repelling issues. Personally, I've found that Triple Paste rocks! It's the only thing that will stay on her tush no matter what.<br><br>
HTH!

my fave cream is the burt's bees, but i don't know if it is ok with cloth/fleece... since we have been in cloth, we have used a sample from full circle baby, it works well, but burt's bees was better...<br>
what exactly are the ingredients that will build up an repel?? what do i need to avoid??

I've used Burt's Bees and Wedela and both have been fine for my FB - no repelling and no staining. I like the Burt's Bees because it is nice and thick.

I use palmer's bum butter (I think that's what it's called) and it doesn't stain or cause repelling as far as I can tell.

I've used both Weleda and Burt's Bees on fleece lined diapers with no trouble. I like the Weleda the best.

I used burt's bees with a BunGenius the other day, and I can't seem to get it out. I am brand new to cd, so I don't really know what I am doing...but I can still see a little of the ointment on the lining. I don't know if it will make a difference in the performance of the diaper, but I just wanted to let you know.

Do you have hard water? Zinc tends to stain in hard water.

I use BumGenius and have always used regular old Desitin on my son. Nothing else works on his rashes. It stays on DS's skin, but washes out of the diapers and any other fabric without a problem.

so why does the moe website say to use no diaper creams? if they stain, i can handle that... but if they cause buildup and repell water, that is not so good...

I went ahead and got some Burt's Bees and I really like how it stays on ds's skin overnight. So far there doesn't seem to be a problem with the diapers. But then again, I'm not having to use much cream and only once in a while.

hopefully, it's fine... BB's is my fave rash crm, as it stays where you put it, and works QUICKLY!! usually only one or two applics and the rash is gone.... but when i use it, I am afraid to ruin my cloth and end up using 'sposies... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br>
also don't have to use it often...<br><br>
so what is the trick for getting ZO buildup off dipes?? (just in case...)?? does stripping the dipes work for it??

We ALWAYS use a liner -- sometimes just extra fleece from the dipes (I made my own pockets) and sometimes those thin baby washcloths -- but we ALWAYS use a liner.<br><br>
And after trying a bunch of different creams (including Burt's Bees) we are VERY happy with Triple Paste. That stuff works so much better than any of the others!

I may be the world's biggest idiot, but I need help! My son is just finishing a course of antibiotics, which means 10 days of diarrhea and horrific diaper rash. We've been using Triple Paste with baby washcloths as a liner, and right now I've got terrible repelling issues with my HH pockets. As I was reading this thread, I suddenly got the sinking feeling that I probably should've been washing the liners separately from the diapers, and that's why I'm having problems. I'm currently stripping my diapers for the second night in a row -- any suggestions, or ideas about how long stripping is going to take?

After a bad experience with Baby Aveeno diaper rash cream and my BGs, I'm never combining cloth & cream again without a liner. We had nearly instant major leakage problems. Luckily stripping with Dawn took care of the problem, although the stains are still apparent.<br><br>
I've read that Desitin will make your diapers smell fishy.
