are fitteds better for nappy rash?

Postby fleur08 » Wed Aug 19, 2009 11:12 am

i mainly use pockets at the moment,mainly because thats what ive got the most of and they dry super quick.

em's keeps getting nappy rash, possibly from what i was using to wash nappys in, plus shes teething & im getting fed up with it!
so, should i change to fitteds ?( already got some wool,but not enough :wink: )
if so , please feel free to recomend some pretty fitteds :D that last a reasonable time, i like the look of mutts & bububebe -but are they very absorbant? any others?
thanks in advance .

I would say generally fitteds and wool are the best thing for nappy rash as it's the most breathable option, lots of nappy free time and fitteds with no covers will help at home too!

TBH I don't find fitteds any better for rashes but saying that apart from teething Gracie doesn't really get a rash.
Our fav fitteds are Flutterbyfluff, think Hanna is putting up some custom slots this week
Hollow Oak
Mutts
WN NL
Jimmy Riddles
We have a bububebe but it isn't the most absorbant nappy we have tried, I always add extra boosting to it.
Like Hanna said as much nappy free time as poss is great. xx

I'm not sure much will help with teething rash, apart from nappy free time as Hanna suggests. I have found that fitteds and wool have helped keep her bottom in peachy condition. It would sometimes be a little red (not sore though) coming out of a pocket, but not much difference.

We use:
Hollow Oak
Jimmy Riddles
Dunk n Fluff
Guerillafluff

Would love a Flutterby Fluff day nappy, but it depends if I remember on Friday and am quick enough to get a custom slot!
