I never get this with at all with his pockets though, which are all fleece lined so for me, I think it's the wetness from being a fitted which irritates him (& me :giggle: ). :hug: :hug:


Same here, but i always used fleece liners with the fitteds too :babyrolleyes:

I would give it time, the skin is probably just getting used to it. If there are no sores and baby doesn't seem uncomfortable then I wouldn't worry about any pinkness. We found, after a long run of using cloth that the same happened when switching to disposables for a holiday. It was in no way irritating to our son, but the pinkness was there.

I always line my nappies with either fleece or minkee liners, also make sure that his little bottom is completly dry after wiping him...if they are a bit wet in their creases from washable wipes then it can make them sore...disp wipes have something in them to dry the skin out afterwards but obv washable wipes dont...so always make sure he is nice and dry!

Hope you get it sorted soon! :hug:

Absolutely fine with Itti Bitti, Blueberry and WN- no redness at all. Especially like the Blueberry, will have to hunt some down. Thanks ladies. :D
