    Default Cloth nappies and nappy rash.

    DD is 6 weeks and seems to be prone to nappy rash. Every time we start using cloth nappies it comes back within a day.

    It clears up reasonably quick when using disposables and zinc+caster oil cream for a few days.

    but as soon as we switch back to MCN's she gets a sore red butt


    any tips other than being religious with frequent changes?

    Could she be allergic to the material?

    Could be the laundry liquid you are using?

    If you want a cream you can use with cloth nappies I can personally recommend this http://www.karritreelane.com/index.p...&productId=246 works a treat

    Could it be the laundry powder, perhaps?

    You can use nappy rash cream with mcns as long as you use a liner

    I've been using bepanthen with microfleece liners. I bought the material from spotlight and just cut them up.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll get some liners avd look at getting a gentle washing powder.
    Ive just been using a 1/4 amount of our usual powder but maybe it's too harsh. Any reccomendations?

    I use to use the eco wash. Can I ask, are you running them through a cold rinse cycle than washing them in hot water?

    I use earth's choice and find it really good. I also found using a high water level helps. Some people like soap nuts or rocking green.
