    Default Mcns causing rash?

    My DS is 12 months old, for the first 8 months he was in cloth during the day with a sposie overnight with no issues.
    After a few months of predominantly sposie use (I'm pregnant again, exhausted and don't want to do any washing) we are getting back into the swing of cloth but every time he is in one he comes out with a sore red bum :-/
    I don't understand why as nothing has changed, I still use the same gentle washing powder, had a strip wash a couple of months ago.
    He is never in one long enough to get soaked, usually change it after a few hours regardless if its yet or not.
    Anyone had this happen and resolved it? Due to budget issues we have to go back to cloth during the day but I can't do this while every time I put him in a Mcn he ends up sore
    Please help!

    Default Mcns causing rash?

    Subbing as I'm having the same problem with my DS and cloth nappies.

    I change him every 2hrs and have done strip washes, left everything in full sun for 2 days... To no avail.

    Back in disposables and the rash is gone within a day :/

    Default Mcns causing rash?

    Yes I had major problems. There is a thread of mine under MCN's. I no longer use any detergent, I do a rinse cycle then drain it and do a hot cycle with NO soap or anything, and hang them in the sun to dry and get rid of stains/germs

    It's bizarre as we previously had no issues, what an irritating mystery!

    My DS1 kept having an allergic reaction every time I had him in a mcn, it got so bad that we couldn't use them anymore.

    Is he teething? Could his wee be a bit more acidic than normal and tags causing the rash? Maybe it's clearing up in a sposie cos it draws more of the moisture away from his skin than a mcn?

    I only use soap nuts to wash mine. Before that I made handmade washing powder (natural ingredients)....

    Thanks peanutmonkey - I think in my case it could be all three of those things! Most probably the wetness of the mcn against his skin.

    Could be a fungal thing. Do you ever use canestan in your rinse cycle? It could be worth a try

    Default Mcns causing rash?

    We had nappies that were super smelly as soon as a little bit of wee hit them and were causing redness. Realised we weren't using enough soap and not washing out all of the urine, so there was a bit of an ammonia build up. Increased detergent, used fleece liners until the redness cleared up and we were ok again. I think DS was teething at the time too which didn't help.

    We use a tiny bit of earths choice detergent and dry in the sun. I also use a little Gaia cream on DDs bottom with a flushable liner, we've had no probes so far
