      We use cloth diapers and still got chemical burn from synthetics in the fleece. As soon as we switched to natural fiber CLOTH diapers and prefolds his rash cleared right up. I think some babies just have super sensitive skin. In that case cloth natural fiber diapers I think are the way to go. Sad because I had a ton of pockets before I realized the fleece was the problem.

      that is terrible. i did a lot of research before buying diapers for my new baby and found that most diapers have chemicals in them that can not only cause a chemical burn but also toxic shock syndrome, asthma and hormonal disturbances. that is why we went with cloth diapers. better for baby and the environment!

      It very well could be the same thing. I know some baby's do have allergic reactions sometimes to diapers, but I think there's far to many in this case to chalk it up to an allergic reaction.

      Way back in the 70's, my son had this problem and I needed to use another brand of disposables. I thought he was allergic to them, but maybe this was the problem.
