Probably not the best place for this but over the past week DS has been having severe sposie leaks. That's not the problem though, just part of it. I have noticed that since this started that the skin around the head of his p***s is a bit red. I clean him thoroughly every change but I've noticed no difference. He's circ-ed, what do I do?

Oh ok!



Can i wash our Squishies in hot also?

Are you pulling the skin back on the tip to clean it? If so, stop :) That can irritate it a lot. And if it's leaking it's probably because there's so much pee sitting in his diaper it's irritating the skin as well. If you do sposies at night you can use vaseline or something like that as a barrier so when he pees it doesn't soak into the skin.

Go up a diaper size. His p***s is probably getting irritated from the moisture

Thank you ladies! I figured it was the size. I was just trying to use up the last of our sposies while waiting on all of my stash to arrive. Awh... my used-to-be-teeny baby is going into a size 2 :D

Ok. so my dh loves pockets and will use them. lol. Fantastic. But I would like more diapers in my stash and it seems like covers and flats/prefolds are a little less expensive than pockets (or a lot... lol)



1. Flats or prefolds? What do you like best? I'm intrigued by the flats because I feel like they would dry quick outside in the summer.



2. Ds does well with pockets because of the microfleece... Too much wettness gives him rashes. Is there a way that I could just pop some fleece in there between his bum and the prefold/flat?



3. Are snappis as good as they seem? Lol. Dh refuses pins. :)
