very sore legs

Postby sammijayne » Fri Nov 06, 2009 3:46 pm

hiya, any one have any tips or tricks to help?

my poor lo has extreamly bad sore legs they are completely rashey and sort of spotty. she hates having her nappy changed now as i think it hurts even when i use the fleece part of wipe really gently, im just sort of dabbing untill clean then dabbibg dry with a clean dry wipe. her actual bottom is fine its just the bit at top of legs where the nappy is. im changing every 2 hours and its not really helping.

she has only been in cloth for a month and is 18 months old. is it because she is not used to having fabric there? i have several nappy types but cant afford to buy any different without selling first, and that would mean going back to sposies. and i would not know where to start. the ones i have seem to fit prefectly. :(

any help would be greatfully recieved.

Beware - metanium is a nightmare for staining I found. I don't know if others have?

I'd say lots of nappy off time too to let some air get to the areas.

metanium really stains so be sure to use a liner. Also be sure to rinse the nappies really well, I do an extra 2 or 3 cold rinses after a wash. x
