Before bed he has milk. He has his tea about 5pm and itsa combination of the stuff listed above. I make everything from scratch.
The only time i can see food in it is if he has eaten sweetcorn. Smells normal. No red ring around his bottom.
I havnt tried cutting out food, might try that.
he has a bath every 3 days or so. Nothing goes in the bath...occasionally oilatum as he has that on prescription but only probably once every couple of weeks.
He sleeps in his cot, Mattress was replaced when he was born. All bedding/towels are washed at 60c in fairy non bio...same as always...nappies are washed in the same. Line dried. tumble if im desperate but very rarely.
We have tried green baby nappy balm, sudocrem, metainium, zinc and castor oil. We have also tried with/without fleece/minkee liners too..
I feel like such an awkward so and so really
Eleanor, hubby is of the same thinking realy and would prefer i just put him into disps at night, its coming close, i just feel like sorting out his night nappies is becoming a full time occupation atm.

More likely to be the length of time wee is in contact with the skin i would think.cutting out acidic things might help.i think if it was me i'd stick to disps for now and try again in a few months as i know poor tory has tried loads of things.cutting out soya isn't really an option for her i don't think.

I'd rather get a full night's sleep and a peachy bum in the morning with a disposable tbh than wake him up to change him.

ETA, really sorry Tory, I'll butt out now
