    Yay free nappy!

    I've been loving bicarb in the bath for rashly bum. Cleared up the antibiotic rash quick smart. We're good as new now.

    I've been using bicarb in the bath too, with teatree to clean up a nasty rash. DD2's poos have been horrendous and it seems she might be lactose intolerant. She's always avoided cheese when it's offered and only recently have we been offering her cows milk with the bigger kids. We went from one regular poo per day to 5 wet ones.
    Her little bottom just wasn't getting a rest no matter how quick I was so I've been doing 2 baths a day and we've had the best improvement yet (oh and cutting out the cow stuff).

    Might try the bi-carb too, Kim. I have used Nappy Balm (MooGoo) for the last few days, with BBH hemp and bamboo fitteds and a wool cover. Seems to have made a big difference and it isn't hurting her now. Just a bit more healing to go.

    WOHB: BBH bamboo with Disana wool cover (at a guess, the nanny would have changed her!)

    I have used zinc and castor oil cream and natural baby powder to help napping rash.

    I use exactly 1/3 cup bicarb. I know ths because DD1 likes to tip it in, so I giver a measuring cup What I can't tell you, though, is how big my bath is! It's about 15cm deep, and 120cm long.

    This is not great for the nappies, unfortunately. It clogs them up and hinders their absorbency. I use a microfleece liner if I need to use a zinc cream.

    In other news, I just sent my 10th nappy to landfill. 7 sposies, two worn-to-the-bone MCNs, and now one DFM which I left n the swimming bag for two weeks (school holidays! Ouch!) then washed. It was already on its last legs, but the acid wee just ate right through any last hope it had at life. I'm struggling with that a lot, now that we're only washing every 3 days instead of every 2. I think I'm going to have to start wet pailing or something.
