Thanks a lot - I will try the disposable liner on top of the fleece. I still hope that from time to time just the diaper will be fine. I already wash on x-large load and tried a smaller quantity of a different detergent. I also switched from wipe solution to plain warm water to wash the bottom and air it a bit as reccommended.
The coconut butter is a food and is available at the grocery or natural product store. It is the fat from the coconut, not the milk and it is solid at room temperature but melts on contact with the skin. It is also very good for massages. I think it helped the skin that was red and dry from being ''hydrated'' i.e. filled with water as mentionned on the health section.
: Well my baby is also three months and we seemed to go through the same thing. The fleece seemed to work okay but didn't completely take care of the problem. Now I use a disposable liner (Gerber's EZ Liner)and the fleece and that seems to have taken care of the problem. Another thing that I did was to start washing the diapers (even if I was just washing a few) in a full sized, x-large load size on my washing machine. I think the extra water helped get more of the soap out of the diapers and that can be another reason for rashes.
: Just wondering where do you buy coconut butter? I'd like to try it.
: Hope that helps or gives you some ideas of things to try.
