Bamboo cloths? (and sore bum 'again')

Postby Mummyto4 » Mon Oct 13, 2008 6:26 pm

Our Tescos was selling bamboo cloths (10 pack) today. I picked some up to see if they would work as a booster?

They say:

10 Bamboo Anti-bacterial cloths
Can be used for all household cleaning tasks: washing, cleaning and polishing
Bamboo fibre has natural anti bacterial properties
Highly absorbent
Reusable
Anti--bacterial
Eco friendly


Do these sound ok to use?

Oh and Luke has really really sore bum again :( ..........He has the runs so I think thats why (poorly baby :( ) Apart form changing his bum even more frequently, soaking his fleece liners in chamomile tea, is there anything else can I do?

I would certainly give them a try, nothing to lose!!

Ouch to the sore bum, Evie has sores on her legs from the elastic in her night nappies so for 2nd night running she's in a disp to let those heal :roll: :oops:

Sore bum - definately get cream on and if he's got the runs use something thick as a barrier - and if he has just wee'd then don't wipe him (only for poos while sore) - something as simple as vaseline will help... (Or a lot of ppl use sudocrem)

Give him a bath with a bit of salt in the water too might help...

I have heard that those cloths can disintegrate in the wash but as long as they don't then they sound great!

My DD1 used to get AWFUL sore bum skin (usually from runny poos at nursery when they didn't change her as quickly as I would've :roll: )

I used Metanium (yellow cream which stains so only use with nappies+liners) which seemed to heal everything really well - almost overnight usually :D

Would be interested in how you get on with the bamboo cloths.

Thanks ladies, cloths are in the nappy wash as I type, will let you know how they go. Anything is worth a try to boost them up a bit.

I just put him in his bedtime nappy (Sposie...cos of his wet wraps etc) and put a load of bepthanen (Sp?) on until I can get anything else
