How did u do it? I was thinking it might strip all the buildup out of my hair. But I wasn't sure. Then if it wasn't good I could always wash it again.

It's not that bad now that it's dry but it was hard to detangle when it was wet.

You mamas struggling with rashes..



Have you heard of raw silk liners?



They're meant to be really good for sore bottoms.

No, I have not. What do they do?

It promotes the healing of nappy rash, it has a protein sericin from the silk worm & it helps clear up bottoms.



Im not sure if they're stay dry, and i think they can only be used a certain amount of times before the sericin washes off.



You need to hand wash gently to keep the healing properties in the liner. -



Maybe look into it?



I've heard mamas raving about them.

I'll have to look into it. At this point, I think we might have to switch to sposies. What other choice do we have?

Do whatever clears your LO's bottom up :)



Personally, if it were me & id tried a few things with no luck i'd go to sposies.



Thats the reason we are doing CD, ive tried every sposies brand (no kidding) and all we end up with are chemical rashes.

Rashes are why we made the switch too, dd got an awful painful rash from luvs over the summer. Live and learn and then get cloth!

Have you tried using bamboo liners? I have some from alva, I can put a couple in an envelope and send them to you if you want to try them,.they're like $5 something for 100 from alva. Might be just enough to keep her from touching the actual diaper itself.

Sabrina, those sleepers you sent me a couple years ago made it through two babies and are soon to be off to a new home. They still fit my son but he's an early crawler and no longer approves. They were hands down my favorite outfits for both my kiddos.



I'm finally getting to really fill out my stash in the next few weeks. BG freetimes are amazing for ds's skinny butt and I'm pumped to be getting more. Inserts and covers are working well too but he's getting very difficult to handle during changes and I caaaaan't switch to Velcro so aio's are looking like the way to go.
