Has anyone had an issue with water blisters? My 11 month old has now had 3 seperate incidents where he has gotten water blisters on the head of his business (if you know what I mean). They have happened in the last 2+ months. I haven't changed the way I wash or strip (wash every 2-3 days with Rockin Green and strip once a month). I use a combination of GroVia Hybrids and a few pocket diapers. The first two times I got them to heal up pretty good but this last round I have had to put him is disposibles to get to healing. I think part of the healing issue is that he is finally sleeping longer at night but has a wet diaper against him so thing don't want to heal. I'm afraid once I get it healed and back in cloth we might have more blisters appear!! I'm thinking it might be a friction issue since he has gotten so much more active in the last few months. Any advice would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

my middle son has this same problem, they dont seem to bug him but they look awful when he gets them when he has them i use penaten/desitin (sorry i probably spelled those wrong) anyways i use that and a liner, the cream keeps moisture away from the sores and the liner keeps my cloth safe (though if you use sposies during rashes obviously the liner isnt needed) clears them up in a day or two usually

Do you have a stay dry liner on any of your diapers? That might help keep moisture away from his skin during the night. They are also more soft and gentle on the skin so friction should also no longer be an issue.

I use a booster in a Gro-Via hybrid at night, seems soft. I don't think the blisters are happening at night just once they occur they don't want to heal now that he is finally sleeping longer at night and in a wet diaper longer.
