She is sensitive to wipes, so we use cloth and water.

My son has a problem with the fleece too. Gets all red. I had to order bamboo inserts but I like them much better anyway.

I love my bamboo inserts, but I think she's allergic to the microfleece, so it doesn't matter what's inserted into it. I might have to buy some pockets that are made out of bamboo instead.

No allergies *fingers crossed* but she has eczema courtesy of DH. So now I've started to slather on Lansinoh on her as soon as I'm done BF'ing.

Works with all the drool and all - the skin gets clearer, but still rough to the touch

Cameron seems to get bumps on his face from sweat/slobber and his bed sheet.

Arthur has very sensitive skin. He has eczema, and we are constanly battling diaper rash. It's here a week, gone a few days, back a week - very frustrating. His pee is REALLY potent, so we think that is the issue. we have to change him constantly. he can't be in a wet diaper or else he will break out in a horrible rash. We experimented with only using cloth wipes and that didn't help, so we go back and forth since we were gifted with a case of wipes.

No thank god!! Kaylin seems to be ok with just about anything. My son on the other hand had insanely sensitive skin. He was 5 before we could quit using baby detergent on his clothes. He still has to use baby sensitive aveeno wash or he breaks out in these horrible welts. It's horrible.

Sofia has somewhat sensitive skin, we use the Aveeno oatmeal baby wash on her

Angie, you can try Lansinoh on Cameron - I had the same issue with Sofia and she cleared up in 2 days.

I figure if its safe for them to ingest - what's the worst that can happen if its on their skin right?

I'm using calendula cream and it seems to be working. I'll definitely try lansinoh if it stops working.

Amelia has bad reactions to A&D ointment. I made my own diaper rash ointment, aquaphor and milk of magnesia, she is sensitive to the acid in her stool. I had to cut tomato from my diet. Also we discovered last weekend that if she is in disposable's full time she gets a rash but after a day of being home and back in her cloth diapers, her butt was no longer red.
