Ever so often Ethan will have a little flare up of a diaper rash. I usually think it is because he may a few sposies back to back. However, he is currently having a little flare up again and I'm trying to figure out what it may be.
From sposies? He has not worn a sposie in weeks- more than 2 months now.
From cloth diaper detergent? The last load I used up my cloth diaper detergent. I have been alternating back and forth between my cloth diaper detergent and my regular detergent I use. I'm wondering if the cloth diaper detergent is leaving some type of residue that is bothering him? I am currently washing his diapers with my normal detergent as I type this.
From air drying? Ok, this might be far fetched, but the last couple of loads I have sunned them. It has been a few months since I have sunned my diapers. However, with grass and pollen counts high I wonder if sunning them could cause an irritant if they are allergic to these pollens?
From teething? Are rashes just from teething? He has been teething constantly for a couple months now.
From diet changes? A couple months ago I switched our diet to a whole food minimally processed diet. Everything is organic and no sugar other than a little honey and what fruit provides naturally. He has become very regular in his bowels 3 to 4 times a day consistantly (sorry TMI). Although I change him quickly after he does these (sometimes if he is playing I might not know how long it has been since he did the job!) I wonder if he may be allergic to something he's eating? I really have not introduced any new foods.
From wipe solution? He has not appeared to have any trouble with the wipe solution that I make from scratch. However, I did run out of cloth wipes just the other day and my husband has been using sposies and I just use water on cloth wipes until I remember to make a new batch :-)
He's been rashy for about 3 days now. I've been using Desitin and the Hylands diaper creams on him at changes. It just looks like it is getting worse, but it's not horrible. Any type of diaper rash always concerns me. I wanted to run this by you all to see if you have ever noticed a pattern to your baby's diaper rashes and figured out what may be causing yours.
