hi,
my LO has sore rub marks on the inside of his thighs now that he's walking
seems to happen with all kinds of nappies
dunno what to do, its quite sore looking :(
has this happened to anyone else and did it improve over time?

I guess it depends which nappies you're using...

If you are using fitted nappies try using an extra large fleece liner (cut them yourself from an old fleece blanket) and that should stop the chafing...

If it's pocket nappies I'm not sure what to advise.

I use pocket nappies. coolababys and ittis both rubbing. Even fleece coolababys rubbing. WNs seem okay as they're soft all round but cant afford a whole batch of WNs (I wish!)

try something cut so the edges sit in the natural inny bit of the groin (at the top of the legs) rather than coming part way down the thighs. We use tinyeco wraps as they tuck round neatly and the rubbing doesn't happen but with the lower down the thigh fit of the motherease there was slight rubbing. Hope that makes some sort of sense. :-?

I've got this exact problem just now actually although she's been walking for ages :roll: I think dh left her in a nappy too long yesterday and now she's got really sore inner thighs. Today i'm just going to give her plenty of nappy free and when she's in a nappy i stick a fleece liner across ways so that it stops the nappy coming into contact with her skin :wink: :D
