Bad reaction to suedecloth liners?

I made liners from Alova suedecloth and have been using them on my daughter with every diaper since Monday. They do an awesome job at keeping her dry, but now it looks like she is totally dried out down there. Her skin was scale-y and shiny last night so I put some natural petroleum jelly alternative on it. Anyone else experience this? This never happened when we used flip stay-dry inserts.

What side of the fabric is against her skin?

Is it possible she developed a yeast infection?

It is possible she is having a reaction to the suedecloth, though if she was fine for 3 days with it, it seems less likely. What is the suedecloth being placed over? What was the reason you decided to add the liners?

Do you have hard water, could after a washing or 2 they have mineral deposits from hard water?

Re: Bad reaction to suedecloth liners?

No, it doesn't look like yeast--she's just dried out. We're putting the fuzzy side against her skin. I made the liners to see if it helps prevent the redness she gets from time to time and also for when we need to use a diaper rash ointment, but was really banking on being able to use them when she starts solids at 6 months to make clean up a little easier. And yes, we have hard water but I've only washed the liners once (prewashed the fabric). I noticed the scale-y appearance the first day but thought maybe it was just the texture of the suedecloth imprinted on her skin, but her skin only felt dried out last night. We use them over a variety of fitteds & flats, all cotton or bamboo/cotton.

Re: Bad reaction to suedecloth liners?

Does she have any reaction to synthetic materials in general? She may just not react well to synthetic in the sensitive area. You might want to try fleece once it heals though, my LO did better in suedecloth than fleece, I'm sure it can go the other way too. You also might want to look into wool/fleece covers, breathibilty goes a long way to help with redness in my exp with my more sensitive dd. We were only able to continue to cloth diaper with suedecloth and wool parttime - otherwise rash city and yeast city in her case.

Re: Bad reaction to suedecloth liners?

Thank you! We used synthetics briefly but got compression leaks so did away with them pretty quickly--not sure if she's sensitive across the board. Are there any natural fiber stay-dry options?

You can try raw silk liners like these:

A little pricier, but could be a good investment!
