Washed with a tiny amount (about 1/4 of normal) of Persil non bio liquid.

I ordered some fleece liners - hope that'll fix it. :)

It hasn't gotten worse so far so that's good I suppose :crossbaby:

It sounds to me like the skin just getting used to something different. We didn't bother with liners, in fact we can't use anything synthetic due to rashes now.

I would switch to powder if you can, it dissolves and rinses better and is less damaging to machines ;)

Quick thought too...I use a normal dose of powder on my nappies and then double rinse at the end...otherwise i dont find they get completly clean...and like Shadow said powder might be better :)

Ah interesting thanks. Didn't know that about the liquid. Will buy powder once the liquid runs out. Non bio though, yes?

Thanks for all the advice! Loving the whole cloth nappy thing but boy is it a steep learning curve!!

I can't remember why non-bio is recommended. I use bio, but use an "eco" brand, Simply.

Simply sensitive or simply pure is fantastic! It leaves no stains at 40 degrees on my nappies. I think when we switched to cloth it cured a rash in the crease in ds' thigh and none since but he does occasionally look a bit pinky down there, think it might be pressure x

another vote for changing to powder and using fleece liners.

oh and if you have an old blanket made of fleece, you can cut it up into squares to use as liners, it wont need hemming or anything, and will work just as well as ones you buy! :wink: even if you buy a yard of fleece from a shop its cheaper then buying individual liners :wink: :wink:

you can buy the powder for the nappies and use it just for them until the liquid runs out on other washing. my ds is allergic to bold so we use it for our bedding and clothes, and wash his clothes and nappies separately for now until it runs out. (its a HUGE box.. :giggle: )
