Re: Are thse diapers causing rashes?

Sensitivities to chemicals and products can happen over time. I'm not saying that that is what you are dealing with - you'll have to determine that - but, it is possible for it to develop after repeated use. In fact, if a person is going to develop a sensitivity, repeated use is more likely to hurry it along. However, if you are sure it isn't the diapers, then yes - he is probably having a reaction to one of the products you are using. Sorry, mama. That may be a more complicated puzzle.

Re: Are thse diapers causing rashes?

I will keep that in mind while I am trying to figure this out. I bought a bunch of prefolds today in anticipation of another issue. What a pain that will be if it is a sensitivity to pockets or PUL. Ugh!

Thanks for all the support!!

I know it isn't a sensitivity to pockets because he has been wearing them since he was about 3 months old with no issue. It's all of a sudden and the only change is adding bacout to my prewash, changing my detergent, and adding calgon.

We shall see.
It probably is some change in your routine and Im not trying to complicate the issue for you, but when my dd2 was young I used pockets on her with no problem until she got older and suddenly stay dry started giving her a rash. I dont' know if it was her pee got stronger and harder to rinse out or a time thing or what but I had to use prefolds and flats for her. Eventually I was able to switch off like one diaper change pfs one diaper change pockets. But too many stay dry changes in row and she would get a bad rash. Anyway, I hope you figure it out! I know how frustrating that is. We are just getting over a bad make the baby cry on the changing table rash ourselves only ours was yeast caused by acidic teething poo rash.

Re: Are thse diapers causing rashes?

It honestly just sounds like neither one of your detergents are working if you are getting any ammonia or rash. I think they need to be disinfected. For the rash I think lots of air time will help.
