Rash on inner thigh AGAIN!

Postby masheater » Thu Sep 22, 2011 3:59 pm

I don't know what triggers this but usually a few days with nappy free time and no terries works. This time it hasn't. It's like a chafing and even pullup pants (bright boys) anger it.
I think the big night nappy might have started it off (booster bedbug).
He is going through a super wet phase again where his night nappy is wet through sometimes less than an hour after putting it on.
I'm not really sure what to do tonight. Do I wake him and change his nappy in the middle of the night?
I do use barrier cream and moisturising and keep him nappy free for as much of the afternoon as I can.

I've been sitting here thinking. Maybe I should put him to bed with no nappy and put some terries under his sheet. Would that be really weird?

Well I've done it. Three cot sheets with layers of terry / towel in between. The mattress has a padded cover and waterproofing under too. Then put a fleece blanket over the top sort of like a nappy liner LOL.
I feel weird about this but will let you know outcome in the morning!

Hm. Well. Dry as a bone all night! Who'd have thought when some nights he has got through three bedbugs or equivalent!
Which means I may do the same tonight just for the hell of it.
Thigh looking a bit better. Will go nappy free as much as poss today and see if that does it. I don't really understand why he doesn't get this soreness all the time just once every few months.....

glad it went well! could teething be a factor? More acidic wee + rubbing nappies makes the rash? Could explain the every few months thing? We only get this when he's in a nappy with PUL for too long, so nights have been ok as we use wool.
