Is it ok to use creams?

Postby NicolaM » Tue Sep 15, 2009 9:01 am

Hi

I'm new to cloth nappies (have been using itti's for about 3 weeks now!) and my son has a patch of redness which I would normally put sudocrem on. Can you do this with cloth nappies or does the cream affect the absorbancy?

Hope this isn't a really stupid question :giggle:

You need to be careful with greasy creams, but I find if you just use a small amount and rub it in well, it doesn't affect the nappies. Alternatively you could use some paper or fleece liners temporarily that you don't mind throwing out if they get clogged up.

Thanks for that I will check out the cream. Hubby won't be too pleased about me spending more money!

WSS, we have loads of fleece liners, so we usually just use one of those :)

Was just about to buy some fleece liners as we use paper at the moment but they had a warning that you can't use greasy creams! Can someone confirm it is ok to use nappy creams with fleece liners? Sorry for the silly questions.

Also which fleece liner would be best size to use with a large itti?

Thanks
Nic

I just make my own fleece liners! Fleece doesn't need hemmed, as it doesn't unravel, so you can just cut around a booster or something that you have and you get a nice cheap liner :) Or you can just cut rectangles. I could do with making some more actually...
