Quoting FaithLovesPussyCats:" What material are your diapers made up? Suedecloth? He might just be allergic to that. "


I'm not sure, they're Alvas?

Alvas are suede cloth. Do you have any prefolds or flats or anything? You could try putting him in those when his redness clears up and see if he has the same reaction.

I don't know what I could really improve.. I rinse well before washing, then rinse through a full wash, then hot was with 2 tablespoons of detergent, rinse 3x with hot, and add vinegar to at least 1 rinse. Then dry.

Nah we don't. We have prefolds from my aunt's old service but they're rags. I'm getting some viscose liners though, when they come would that help?

So I'm getting knocked down a bit from my soap box...



when it was just Aubrey in cloth, my dipes were very clean and stain free...



Beckhams turds are turding up my diapers... I have some green inserts... I can't wait for spring...

I have some custom Alvas coming from a coop that I don't think I'm going to like... They're Velcro double gussets... Now that I've used the Velcro newborn, I don't think I want Velcro on a OS...



I preferred Velcro for the newborn diapers because it's harder to get the right fit with snaps and we were often between snaps... But I have a feeling I'm not going to like them... I originally got them for DH, but I think I'll probably just try to sell and get my money back...

Would you be opposed to borrowing some fleece lined diapers and testing out if it's maybe a material sensitivity? I could send you about 10 to borrow and you could just send them back when you've found they help or not.

If you don't want to keep them, let me know. I like the DG velcro ones. You may too, they aren't like the regular velcro on the newborns

I seriously do not mind at all. My diapers are literally sitting unused.

Send me your address. You don't need inserts, right?

Awesome. I just dug through an open box and pulled out the most manly 10 diapers I could find lol. THere are a few bamboo ones in there but the rest are fleece inners. Maybe it's just a material issue. Adrien couldn't use suedecloth for the longest time. Jennifer's son was the same way.

Lol I think what may irritate me the most is that they are all stuck together coming out of the washer... That and the "female" side of the Velcro material drives me bonkers... It's a texture thing, sometimes just the feeling of certain fabrics makes me cringe... I only have four coming at some point I may try one out and see how I like them... Otherwise I'll let you know!
