Have you tried a babyshape Mutt? Archie gets terrible leg sores too and these dont touch them at all.

Yeah had to sell mine on, rise was way to low and no room for boosting.

we have a small wnnl which is still a lovely fit, might be worth a shot, also I have a couple of sweetiebums you can borrow (for as long as you need) and an FF you could have it's about dead but would do the job

I had a massive problem with leg sores and awful nappy rash once teething wee started.

We've finally settled on huge fleece squares which flap out of the side of the nappy and hold the wee away from her leg meaning that nothing rubs where she is wet. I'm using large sandies with the leg poppers on the loosest setting - and the waist on the smallest as she's also skinny :roll:

The best cream I've found for us is the boot sensitive baby one - it's lanolin based and seems to be a a good combination of moisturising and barrier.

Then we use wool over the top, as no tight seams - although I have had a problem with a pair of dragon flair shorties - the rib on the leg irritates her, so we've had to stop using them atm.

You might find you're no better with sposies - we thought we'd try them and the leg elastic irritates her after about 12 hours.

The fleece isn't pretty but it does seem to do the job for us. Is your DD allergic to fleece? I did consider fastening the fleece like a terry, which could be your best option with your DDs exploding poo.

Good luck :hug: - I know how awful it can be - I was beginning to despair of ever managing to get her skin healed up :(

I might look out for a small WNNL then!! good plan!!
Wouldn't like to borrow anything Hanna because with her problems her poo is truly awful and has been known to turn some nappies very strange colours. But thankyou!!
The about dead FF sounds fab though, im sure she would love to see if she can kill it with her toxic poo!! We have 2 prized fluffy FF and im almost scared to use them sometimes incase she poo's :oops:
Thankyou :hug:

I'll bring round my med bamboo wnnl and some others that might work for miss sophie tomorrow. I think my HL tricolour is in the nappy bucket, but you can borrow that when it's been washed.
