Kacie's been getting these from a medium Minki pocket nappy. I have 2 and only one seems to do it to her. I wondered if it was what ever the person who sold it me had washed it in :-? It doesn't seem to bother her either, but looks sore to me and I've been putting Bepanthen cream on it.

It could be detergent build-up in the bindings. I'd strip them and see if that helps.

Could be detergent buildup or your dd could be allergic to the elastic bindings.

Ds got marks like that when I used minky wraps on him but it hurt him :( . Have had no problems with other wraps I use apart from when I did one up too tight :oops: .
