Hi, we use itti bittis during the day for the child minder and since Arianwen has started crawling she has had really bad nappy rash around her thighs where the elastic is. She's in disposables at the moment (from today) while I systematically strip all of her nappies but it seems to be from the elastic chafing when she's crawling, so I'm not convinced this will help. Has anyone else had this? What did you do? Any suggestions?

Hmm I would check that they are not too tight too. Of all my nappies ittis seem to be the least likely IME of causing rubbing :-? Could it be that she is moving and therefor the wee on the insert is coming into into contact with her thighs more. Lucas gets rash worse on his inner thighs due to contact with wee than he does on his bum.

I was going to ask how the fit was. I found that my son didn't get on with Ittis very well because I couldn't get a good fit on him. I never had a problem with his thighs but he'd have a red mark on his back sometimes.
