My daughter is 15 months old and has been cloth diapered since birth. She has gotten a diaper rash from the cloth diapers from the get go. These are BAD rashes with raw skin and bleeding/oozing. We put her in a disposable and the rash immediately gets better, even without diaper cream. I am not sure what I could be doing wrong.
I change her every 1.5 - 2 hours
I have switched detergent three times (all from the 'safe' list)
I've stripped the diapers
I've used tea tree oil in the rinse
I've changed the detergent amount from as little as 1 tsp to 2 tablespoons
I check the rinse cycle for bubbles
I give her naked time
I put fleece liners in to wick away the moisture
I am at my wits end! I want to CD so badly, but can't keep doing it unless I can find a cure for the rash. It is not a yeast infection since it goes away without any treatment in a disposable. Any help you can give me would be GREATLY appreciated.
