Hi, I have 2 boys an almost 2 year old and a 9 month old, I decided to start using reusable nappies about a month ago and got some through the local council as part of a scheme thing. I have tried using them with those flushable inserts and was really looking forward to it. BUT (and this is a big but) they always, always leak with my oldest son and my youngest has started getting a really bad rash where the insert is, I had to stop using them but I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and managed to get it sorted? I really really want to use reusables but don't want my son to keep having rashes, is it possible a different brand would make the difference?

I've recently started using fleece liners which have helped keep the bottom dry. I have found the nappy lady good for advice. Www.thenappylady.co.uk

What nappies are you using and are you boosting?

I was just going to ask exactly the same CK!
Waitrose Bottom Butter is brilliant for clearing up nappy rash without clogging cloth nappies up. I use it on E at the first sign of redness and it usually stops it developing.

With M we use pocket nappies with 2 bamboo inserts during the day and get about 4 hours out of a nappy (sometimes more) and he is a heavy wetter. Fleece liners are much better for us than the flushable ones. Weleda Nappy Cream is great for rashes, we use it daily on M as he really suffers.

Could be the brand of nappy as well - I've heard some are better for long, slim babies and some for short, chubby babies - again The Nappy Lady will advise!

yeah I use the bamboo booster that came with the nappy, dotty bots

Im not familiar with those. Are they pocket nappies and you just have one booster in them?

White arkles here do you get Weleda nappy cream might give I a try?

Just looked them up. You might want to boost your bigger sons more. We need at least 2 bamboo for pockets for my 2yr old. Toddler wees are a challenge for cloth
