Back to Cloth
We are back to cloth diapers. A diapering dilemma after Cheeck to Cheek Diaper Service went out of business a few months ago lead us to gdiapers. They are a biodegradable version of disposable diapers. We loved them. Unfortunately, Frank developed a nasty diaper rash. After a full tube of prescription ointment, I decided to try some time off of gdiapers to see what happened. The rash improved when we used regular disposables, and then worsened again when we went back to gdiapers. We knew gdiapers, for whatever reason, contributed to the problem. Regular disposables were better, but they didn't solve the problem.
Shortly after we committed to gdiapers we learned about a new cloth diaper service in town. We made the decision to go back to cloth this week. After all, it had always been our first preference. Several days later we had our first pack of soft cloths, and Frank's rash was completely gone within 24 hours.
