I had talked to a lady once while I was inside target and she said she had the same problem with her babygirl breaking out to huggies and pampers because of the gel that forms when the child wets the diaper, she said she used Target brand and they worked very well for her no rashes, nothing
Have you tried Seventh Generation free & clear brand diapers? They have no fragrances, latex, petroleum-based lotions or chlorine processing. Worth a try to see if your daughter is ok with those.
My daughter had that same problem. I think its because we kept switching brands. When she was born she wore pampers for 2 months. Then we ran out and used huggies they were given to us as a baby shower gift. Then we bought pampers again because i loved the scent. She had a terrible rash. We got her a prescribed diaper ointment. Didnt work. tried the CVS store brand, didnt work. My husband insisted on sticking to huggies since its scent free. i also use the A+D diaper cream the one in the blue and yellow letters and after a couple of days the diaper rash was gone. I also rinse the baby wipes before i wipe her to rinse off the chemicals on the wipes. Now she rarely gets a rash but when she does we put starch powder(caldezene its in a blue bottle) overnight and in the morning diaper rash is gone. Hope it helps.
Our son has pretty sensitive skin and we have always used the Target brand, Up&Up, with no issues. I have a good friend who has a little boy with really sensitive skin too. She started using Seventh Generation brand diapers and his break outs have ceased! Another option might be cloth diapers? Instead of wipees, maybe cloth wipes with just water on them? And one other product that we love is Bordreaux's Butt Paste...provides a great, soothing barrier for little tushies.
I had the same problem with my 21 months daughter when she was younger. Poor girl had three times of yeast infection because of the rashes. Do not use the Pampers Sensitive ones, I think those causes even more rashes. Try to open the diaper and let her little butt breath in the air few times a day. Use vaseline or some kind of barrier each diaper change (I use Grovia magic stick.) Don't use wipes when she has rashes, the alcohol makes the rashes worse. Instead, try use wash cloth with some warm water to clean it each time. It takes 3 to 5 days to clear all the rashes, but as long as you use some barrier each time you should not have any problem. You can also try Desitin soothing bath powder + Desitin Maximum Strength Paste (purple one) which helps a lot.
Have you considered cloth diapering?
Are you sure it's even caused by the diapers? My son has eczema and he gets a rash on his bottom and we use jock itch cream (or any other antifungal) and it clears it right up. Have you spoken to your pediatrician about it? My sister had a similar issue with her oldest child, no matter what brand of diapers they used she seemed to ALWAYS have a diaper rash. Her pediatrician told her to use a little tube of eucerin cream, a little tube of aquaphor and Maalox. Mix the two tubes and a capful of the Maalox together and use that. Hope you find something that helps!
You might need to go the route of cloth diapering because she might be very sensitive to the chemicals in the diapers. It looks like you have a redhead as do I. They tend to have very sensitive skin. Definitely use cloth wipes when she has a rash since disposable wipes have chemicals in them that will burn. There is a lot of information on cloth diapering and lots of different choices. It's not as scary as it might sound. We have been doing it for over a year and love it. Plus it saves you money too!
I find that my cloth diapers do much better at not leaking than a disposable. I think you just need to find the right combination to avoid leaks. I use Ragababe diapers at night and he can go 11-12 hours and wake up with no leaks. He would always leak in a disposable overnite dipe. And I couldn't tell you the last time he leaked during the day. I would also classify him as a heavy wetter.
I used Nature Babycare diapers and they worked for my baby.. .. I stopped using any wipes on her...wet coth for pee and washing with water for poops did the trick...Oh and make sure the you dab the strong toilet paper over the skin to completely make it dry before putting on a new diaper...
parent's choice is pretty good.
