    Default Strange type of rash

    I have been having a hard time with this strange rash that DS gets. Its not in his potty area but instead is across his belly (just under his belly button but still inside the diaper) and on the inside of his thighs. I am having the hardest time figuring it out. Has anyone else dealt with this? I'm thinking that it has to do with how tight or loose the diaper is. I think we figure out that the thighs is due to it being too tight and the belly is too loose. The rash is like red welts that are rough... So I'm trying to make sure the leg are is loose enough but the belly area is tight enough.

    Thoughts? Any ever heard of this before? We have a pretty slender little guy so I'm wondering if this has anything to do with it?? I just have no idea. Yesterday we let him go diaper free while we were outside for an hour or so... that seemed to help a lot. Just not sure how to get rid of it!

    What kind of diapers are you using? Is it only where the cover itself is coming into contact with his skin? Perhaps he is allergic to the cover fabric?

    That sounds like what Teagan got when we were using one brand (WAHM) of pocket diaper as a cover. She only got it where the cover came in contact with her skin. I stopped using those covers and she stopped getting it. Perhaps you could post a pic?

    We use all kinds. Prefolds, pockets, fitteds, AIOs. Mostly BG and a couple FB, little fancy pants, dolce baby, little boppers. His tummy area is inside the diaper... It's not always... Sometimes apparently we are getting the diaper on right and he doesn't have a problem...

    Interesting! I'll see if I can get a pic at some point. Today I've been using PFs and a cover so it doesn't seem to be a problem... But I'll see how it looks when he wakes up.
