I have been using Fuzzi bunz since my son was born hes now 4 months old. Starting about a month he got a diaper rash I used disposables so I could use a cream it cleared right up I went back to using my cloth diapers and it came back after 1 day so i rinsed them all thinking maybe theres soap residue. It got really bad when we drove from San Diego Ca. to Reno Nv. so I got disposables and once again cleared right up so I thought ok we have a issue with the soap I have changed soaps and after 1 day the rash is back and looking as mean as ever. I am at a loss of what to do I was using arm and hammer one that Fuzzi bunz suggests to use and moved to trader joes cleanliness is next to godliness. His rash is little red spots above his penis the edges around his legs are red the head of his penis sometimes looks a little inflamed. On the trip he ended up with a couple of open sores I really dont want that to happen again. So any ideas on what I can do or should I just give up the cloth?

ok, I may be way off...but we use Fuzz and my daughter just got back from the Dr. because she has a yeast infection. The yeast STAYS in the cloth wipes and Diapers you use, your diapers may need treated for yeast, look up- there are MANY ways to do this. The diaper rash may not be a true diaper rash and instead a type of yeast infection that he keeps being re-exposed to. Cloth diapers tend to really harbor this if not treated.

Careful with the creams though, the FBs are really prone to waterproofing with creams. I let my son air dry for a min or two with each change and it seems to clear up his rash. I agree with the other poster, the only rash he got was when we were out and about for the better part of the weekend and he sat in wet for too long. That's tough with a long car ride though. Maybe try going diaperless for an extended period once you reach your destination?

It sounds as if it might not be the soap, but the absorbancy of the diaper. Cloth diapers are not as absorbant, so the urine stays in contact with the skin until the diaper is changed. Disposable diapers are made of a material that wicks the moisture away from the lining so that they are not as irritating. With cloth diapers, you must be more diligent in changing as soon as your baby wets and also keep a moisture barrier on his skin. Creams like zinc oxide (desitin), Aquaphor, Butt Paste, etc are helpful.
