- diaper rash
Cloth diapering and his diaper rash wouldn't go away with any creams or balms. These worked nearly instantly and now we just use them at night or during longer stretches (outings, naps). We throw them right in the wash with our diapers despite recommended instructions due to poops, but others stated its fine and they are! They shrink and pill a bit and feel less "silky" but work the same and don't keep bacteria like handwriting may. Love them, will buy more in a second if needed!
not magic but definitely helps!
Use this at night to help prevent amonia burn on my sensitive kids bum. It helps. I wouldn't call it magic, and we definitely still have flare ups, but it really does help nighttime skin health. I have also been machine washing it since he gets poop on it sometimes and any trace of yuck and he breaks out. I will definitely be getting another pack at some point so I have enough when he does have a rash because 5 doesn't quite do it.
Does take a bit to dry after they pee, so sometimes my baby is content with it and goes back to sleep and other times she is not. I don't personally believe that diaper rash is caused by wetness, at least not in my experience, so that is not why I purchased this. I purchased this to help my baby sleep longer & be more comfortable on errands when I may not be able to change her immediately. Also, babies tend to pee when they wake, so it makes sense that the liner might be soaking wet in the morning. I do think though, that if your baby goes #2 in it, it could cause a diaper rash the next time you use it if cold washing according to their instructions. I know that it will not last as long hot washing, but I'd rather know that it was clean for my baby. I just hand wash with hot water when she goes #2. She is also sensitive to diaper rash but for me what helps is using soap & frequent changes. I keep a little glass spray bottle of water with about a tsp of Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild.
didn't work, area possibly worse
the liner is supposed to help with rash. i had high hopes and used it overnight within a disposable diaper. our baby's entire area, however, turned red/pink. the liners would be soaking with pee when i changed him and so the wetness would just be sitting on his skin at night. very disappointed. these were not cheap. what did help me was the trukid eczema cream. paired with diaper cream, it healed the skin, and in addition to changing to a different diaper brand (bambo), has healed a very, very bad, stubborn rash.
My little one wets right through the nappy with liner. I am really disappointed.
