I knew when we started with cloth diapers that it wouldn’t be without its bumps in the road, and we’ve had a couple now. Our biggest dilemma up to now was repelling.
Now baby girl Brookland has had a sore bum on and off for just about two months, 2 months! This Momma has felt horrible, it started after we switched to formula, so naturally we thought she was having a reaction to it, and tried a different kind. Her little bum got better, then worse.
Friday morning, at 9:15 I was able to get through to the pediatrician’s office, at 10am. I guess I should add that we got about 6 inches of snow Thursday night and early Friday morning. We all had to get dressed and out of the house. We ended up being 15 minutes late, but thankfully in this case, these doctor is usually running behind.
He diagnosed her bum as a yeast infection rash. Some cream was prescribed and we were sent home. From reading other CD blogs I know that my diapers need to be cleaned really well to make sure that once her rash is gone it doesn’t come back.
All diapers have been washed in very hot water with baking soda and detergent, the first rinse with vinegar followed by two more rinses. I also dried them in the dryer only, something I never do.
Have you had this problem? What did you do?
