My son started having mild diaper rash when I use cloth. I've been using them for about 4 months and everything's been great until recently. I put him in disposables while he has a rash and use creams, then once it's gone I put him back into cloth and after a day or so the rash is back. Why? I wash them 1 cold cycle w/o detergent, 1 hot/warm cycle w/soap nuts and baking soda, 1 hot/warm w/o detergent then an extra rinse. I've stripped them and still problems. I usually change him every 2 hours or so. When I do use cloth I put coconut oil on him and still rash. What am I doing wrong? It doesn't look like yeast. It clears up in a day or so w/sposies and cream. I make sure he's dry before putting on a new diaper. I don't want to give up w/cloth but am so frustrated!
