I have 2 in diapers. I just recently (as of last weekend) starting CDing. My 5 month old developed a rash around his waist starting on Monday. He scratches it when I change him but otherwise it doesn't seem to bother him. It's small red or pink dots. We did not have this problem before. We use the Bummis SWW and proraps with prefolds (UBCPF and UBIPF).<br><br>
Could this be a sensitivity to the PUL in the wraps? Could it be something else? I just made a fleece soaker and a wool soaker. Should I alternate those instead of the wraps to see if it clears up? Should I just put him back in disposables to see if it clears up?<br><br>
Thanks!

It could be mine reacted to pull when combined with the wetness of the diaper. Especially with proraps. You can try fleece wool or Nylon covers and see if that helps. That and changing as soon as possible.

Thanks! I tried wool last night and wow, wool is awesome. But I wonder how long before the rash should resolve or if it remains, how long before I can rule out the covers being the reason for the rash?

Have you been out in the heat? It sounds like heat rash to me. It probably is just because the PUL doesn't allow for much breathability. That's why a lot of people like wool all summer.

Yes I live in the deep south, so it is HOT.

It could be a PUL sensitivity. I would use wool exclusively for a while and see if it clears up.
