|2 pad-folded flats in Flip covers & a wet bag, ready for our trip to the doctors|
His 6 month appt went well, but the rash that he's had for about 5 days turned out to be a yeast rash. The doctor said that a combination of bad teething and the El Paso heat is what caused it. She gave me some special cream to use to help it clear up, but it's definitely not a cloth diaper safe cream.
I don't have any disposable liners to protect my diapers from the cream; and I don't have a local cloth diaper store to buy liners from. I'm not against using a disposable twice a day when I have to put his cream on, but that means screwing up my flats challenge!
So I guess I will just go ahead and use a disposable twice a day, but continue to use flats (and handwash them) for the rest of the day. The pad fold seems to let his butt breath a little better, so I will continue to do that. I will also let him have some naked time every day.
I'm glad that our doctor is "cloth diaper friendly" and I'm grateful for her help and the diaper cream. But I would like to know what advice you guys (my cloth diaper guru friends) may have for me about yeast rashes! What have you done to care for & prevent them? I'm still pretty new to cloth diapers and would appreciate any help at all!
