I was highly allergic to all but one type of diapers and wipes that isnt made anymore and people have bought me huggies and luvs and i break out with them now just handling them. I do have wipes from huggies that are hypoallerginic that i dont break out from but i do from the regular. My allergies are 100times worse than it was before i was pregnant. Does this mean my baby has a chance of the allergy after he is born and do they make hypoallerginic diapers?Answer Question

The only way you will find out if the baby is allergic to the diapers is when you use the diapers on the baby.

I'm allergic to propylene glycol, a preservative. If you look it's in the wipes. It's in a lot of things and it may be what you are allergic to. It's something you can be tested for.
I have a 20 mo grandson and we have never used wipes. When he was little I would put folded paper towels in a zip lock bag with water, a drop or two of castile soap, and olive oil for the diaper bag. Now we just use water and paper towels. He has been ok with disposable diapers. Two of my kids had problems and I used cloth with all three.
You can find a lot of info about cloth diapers in Mothering Magazine, on their web site, and on their discussion boards.
