LO STILL has thrush in his nappy area, though the rash comes and goes (gone in the morning, but back after a couple of hours in the first nappy, then comes and goes throughout the day). I've heard of people switching to sposies for a bit while getting rid of it, but how does that work? Surely as soon as I put him back in the cloth it'll just re-infect him? So grouchy. I've not been using my nicest nappies this whole time to avoid wrecking them by washing them on 60 and I'm fed up of my cheapies. I want to use my new WN when it arrives too. Why won't this darn thrush just GO!?
I think the idea of sposies is that you get LO clear of it while also clearing it from the nappies - strip washing and washing on 60 degrees, maybe with vinegar or sanitiser I think.
Unless you have ebay cheapies, I think any nappy will be absolutely fine being washed on 60 degrees all of the time so I wouldn't worry about that - use the pretties if you stick with cloth! Check individual labels to make sure but I doubt you'll find any that would be damaged at 60 degrees.
I think it was maybe one 60 wash that faded my Hahtuvahullus, my absolute fave nappies. Though it might have just been a co-incidence that I noticed it then. But that's what's worried me. What can I do with the cloth to make sure there's no thrush left in it, as well as 60 degree washes?
Definitely vinegar on everything, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, bottle parts & nipples if I use them, spit rags burp cloths, your bras & anything else that might have touched LOs mouth or been exposed to the yeast. Bleach doesn't kill it & heat will kill some, vinegar is an anti fungal & will get rid of it. Tea tree oil in the wash is a good idea too & add it to some water and use it as a spray for LOs bottom for a few weeks!
