I just started cloth diapering my 5-month old son and so far it is easier than I thought. The only problem I've encountered is that after being in cloth diapers overnight, he wakes up with a mild rash on the front area, above his penis. I don't even know if diaper rash is the appropriate term. What he has are these red bumps, like very small pimples, on his front. I imagine this comes from laying on wet urine-soaked diaper all night. He always flips over to sleep on his tummy, so in the mornings the front of his diaper is very wet. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this and had found a solution to this problem. I thought about putting diaper rash cream as a barrier, but then I got nervous after I read that diaper rash cream can ruin the absorbency of the diaper. Anyone have any suggestions?
BTW, he sleeps with a Sandy diaper and two Mother Ease liners. So far this has worked well in preventing any leaking but the red bumps have me concerned.
