okay so I've have a cloth diaper issue. Audrey developed a rash after we switched to cloth. As you know, or don't know, part of the reason I switched to cloth was to avoid rashes. Audrey has never had an issue with rashes but after the reports of chemical burns with Pampers, I decided I wasn't going to take any chances. "Isn't it ironic, don't you think? A little too ironic!" Sorry, had a 90's moment.
But yes I do think it is ironic that I switched to cloth and got a rash when I was switching to cloth to avoid rashes. So we got a rash from the detergent we were using. Thanks to the wonderful people at Pinstripes and Polkadots, I was able to figure it out. So I'm including the link to their cloth diaper basics. It was a wonderful resource. I would also suggest joining diaperswappers.com and/or thebabywearer.com for forums about cloth diapering and buying cloth diapers. My entire stash is made up of used CDs. Mostly Goodmamas because they fit Audrey so wonderfully. I was lucky I was able to ask the mama's at Triad Tot Toters for recommendations and they let me try them on Audrey.
So anyways, I didn't do quite enough research before switching. Detergents do matter. You live you learn.
