My daughter has the most sensitive skin! We have been using pampers diapers since she was born. Ever since we changed fromm a sz 2 to a 3 she has had a rash that looks like a burn. Im positive its from the diapers because we have borrowed a couple of my friends other brand diapers and the rash went away...Anyone else have a baby like that and whats a good diaper to use for really sensitive skin?

If you're willing to put in a little extra work, almost no babies have reactions with cloth diapers. My son has had two rashes in 21 months, both from surprise poops we didn't notice before he went to sleep for the night. A lot of the newer cloth diapers are nearly as easy to use as sposies, and they come in *adorable* prints. I thought they'd be a lot of work, but they're actually really not bad. I do about 2 extra loads of laundry a week, and have to use the Method diaper cream, but that's it. :) If you are interested, let me know and I'd be happy to talk about it with you.

I use the honest company diapers and wipes. My son is 9 weeks and we have used them since he was born. He has very sensitive skin and they work wonders for him. A bit more in cost but well worth it!

I found that White Cloud, which is the Walmart brand was excellent. My son's skin was so sensitive that his rear would bleed. As soon as I switched it was great!

Hi my DS has really sensitive skin, I found Huggies to be the best. I also know some wipes made the rash worse!! I now only use J&J unscented wipes, they dont cause any problems. I also found that reducing the amount fibre in his diet worked well as well. It goes against all advice but simple things like swapping from brown or high fibre bread to white made a big difference, and sudocream to help keep the moisture away at night. Good luck

Would also like to mention that Triple Paste was really affective at alleviating my daughter's rashes when they came up. The other butt creams just didn't do the job like this stuff does.

If the Huggies start to bother you little one then try cloth I ended up having to go to them also but in the long run they are cheaper and especially if you have another one

I ran into this problem with my third son. We tried everything from the cheap brands to the expensive ones and finally someone suggested Seventh Generation Organic Diapers. I rolled my eyes at it at first, but tried them and have used them for the past year or so. My local grocery store sells them but they are in the 'organic' aisle by the pharmacy. They really aren't anymore expensive than Pampers or Huggies. I love them. If your local store doesn't carry them (which you can request them and they will usually get them in for you) you can try Target or Whole Foods (if you have one by you).

HUGGIES !! My daughter 1yr old has sensitive skin, but i have used Huggies Dry Comfort range since birth and she has never had a rash, I just apply some vaseline on every nappy change.

Pampers recently changed the formula in their diapers and MANY people have had this exact problem (it's even discussed on their website). We use cloth diapers partly because of our daughter's sensitive skin but when we occasionally use disposables I like the Huggies pure and natural organic diapers or Seventh Generation. Good luck with your babe, hope the rash clears up. I'd DEFINITELY stay away from the Pampers!

I always used to use pampers, i believe they have slightly different sorts in the UK as we don't have pampers max over here(not that i've seen anyway) i switched to huggies for a while and then tried pampers again and got the same problem as you with one child but not the other, so yes it does also depend on the individual,but i know for sure that pampers have changed their nappies over here as i filled in a questionnaire on line and told them how crap i thought they were. having said all that what i've found that actually works better than anything is good old fashioned vaseline(petroleum jelly) as it creates a waterproof barrier between your babies skin and the nappy i use at every nappy change the only reason my one child got a rash was because some-one else had changed him and not put the vaseline on him and yes quite often the shops own brand products are pretty good.

Good luck:)

i find that the major brands are all awful, they have sent in them that can cause reactions and most of them leak when barely soiled. i use a store brand, i tried several kinds until i found the ones i liked. i used a different brand for each of my girls. my middle daughter had a constant rash, it turned out to be from the diaper cream. my youngest has contacted dermatitis (spelling?) and gets rashes all over her body and we haven't been able to find the cause. until her current rash is gone you should have her out of her diaper in the open air as much as possible. you mentioned her rash went away when you barrowed diapers from a friend, i would ask them what brand they use, changer her bum often and try to leaver her diaper off for a bit after every change to air dry. good luck!

We had a burn like rash with every disposable diaper we tried. So we use cloth and love it. I recommend it to everyone. They aren't the gerber prefolds and rubber pants anymore like most people think. We use the flip system from cottonbabies.com. Good luck!

I face this problem with my son and it really painful. I can tell you if you don't take care of it, it can turn into a swelling like when your skin was expose to fire. That what happen to my son. The doctor order me by totally never use any kind of soap during bath time and by changing my son diapers to the breathable one.

Most diapers have baby powder in them now and that can cause an allergic reaction. That sounds like there is something in the diapers causing that reaction, change no no name or teddy's choice

The same thing happened to my daughter who is almost 8 months old. I always used Pampers until size 3 when i could no longer get them in Swaddlers. I tried Pampers Cruisers and hated them! We now used Huggies little movers supreme. I love them no complaints yet!! Also, around the same time I noticed my daughters rashes is shortly after I switched wipes. I was using Pamper's Sensitive to their Baby Fresh, unfortunately she not only started rashes but baby acne had begun too. We are back to the sensitive, with rashes and the acne seems to be clearing up!! Goodluck!!

My daughter is the exact same way! Just recently she has been getting a rash from her diapers I have always used. I don't know what to do either. I have been putting cortizone cream on her & then a light coat of baby powder. That seems to be keeping the rash from getting any worse, so far. If I do find one, I will post it right away! Good luck!

My little girl was very sensitive and kept rashes from the chemicals in major brand name diapers. I heard pampers currently changed their formula and a lot of people are complaining of the sudden chemical burns on the baby bums. Huggies and Luvs worked better for my girl (she had a lot fewer rashes but still got some until potty training), but for my new baby I have been using new age cloth diapers. He has only had a rash when using disposables. I like them way better than any disposable I ever used and wish I would have known about the nice new styles with my daughter. She probably would not have had so many rashes.
