Disposable nappies & chemicals


Which disposable nappies have the least chemicals in them?

My baby has severe nappy rash and nothing is working, so I thought it might be the nappies

thanks!

Have you tried metanium nappy ointment?

Sorry if you have

Perhaps try some organic nappies? I think huggies do some?

ETA Do you BF? It may be something your eating that's causing it. I don't BF myself, but i've started weaning LO and for a few days she had far too much fruit and the nappy rash was horrific

Yes, I've tried metanium and watching my diet. In fact, I've tried everything (except swapping nappies) and nothing is working! His bum is making me v sad

I'm thinking of going onto washable nappies unless someone can recommend some good low chemical ones x

Huggies do organic nappies.

not neccisarily to do with nappies, as we use cloth nappies. But we make our own solution to clean her with. Its just camomile tea and baby wash. It really helped get rid of Amara's nappy rash (although we switched to cloth at the same time)

Maybe you could buy some dispoable liners:

And make up some solution and soak the liners in, and ring them out so they arent dripping wet IYSWIM, and lay it inside the nappies. Hopefully having the camomile tea next to his skin, it should soothe it.

If you can find anything, then maybe consider switching to cloth nappies. Amara has never had it since we switched.

I find Sainsburys Eco nappies are quite good when I need to use disposables.
Failing that - try cloth. It isn't as difficult or gross as most people think.

Also - post this in the Natural Parenting section - you may get some good suggestions in there

I can't help with the brands but mine had this while we were in diposables, poor little mite was so sore looking. We used tescos, pampers and huggies, all made him sore.

I soothed it it by washing him down gently with warm water and cotton wool, patting dry with a soft towel and applying sudocrem before putting the nappy on each time.

Since switching to washable nappies it's completey gone tho! xx

When my son was first born we used Pampers Dry Max - NEVER AGAIN! My poor baby developed chemical burns and blisters on his bottom and would scream in agony every time he did a poo - it was horrific. We switched to Huggies organic and it cleared up within a few days. He has very sensitive skin and has never had a problem with these so I would def recommend! x
