>So my daughter never really got a “diaper rash” to speak of. A handful of times, she got a tiny bit red, we put some butt paste (which my Mom got as a joke but turned out to be awesome) on it & she was good as new. So, arrogant first time mother that I was, I assumed that if a baby had diaper rash issues, it must be (diaper) operator error (i.e. the parents).
Well, I sure got my comeuppance with my son. His pediatrician has commented that he is “rashy,” and it’s true. He has had baby acne, bumps and redness galore, and his bottom is no exception. That combined with a rasp he’s had since birth makes him suspect eczema.
That gave me a renewed determination to make cloth work for us. I found another detergent chart that had other detergents listed, and we were able to find two of them at a local organic market.
Satisfied that I’d be able to safely wash them, I ordered three Bumgenius 3.0 one size pocket diapers and eagerly awaited their arrival.
