Mine did that too. What I had to do was strip them. Now, when a wash is coming up, I soak them overnight in the machine, put them through without soap until the first spin. Then I restart the wash with soap on a full wash. The stripping helped tons. I think they went through 3 full washes before I got all the buildup out. Now that I soak them overnight, they don't rash up anymore.

Quoting bowribbonmama:

Cloth makes my youngest break out in AWFUL rashes, even when she would get changed every hour. I still don't know what was causing it but ever since I switched to disposables the rashes have stopped.

It sucks because I LOVE cloth.

I clothed for the first 14 months but with up coming vacations and a move I sold my stash. I also have an HE washer and it took all day washing. I know excuses excuses but I was just done. At least I did it for as long as I did...

I tried stripping them a bunch of different ways, nothing seemed to help. It also seemed to be worse at night when she started sleeping through the night.
The rash would bubble and then split open causing her to bleed and be in pain :(

ah bummer!
Maybe the type of material against her skin, or the detergent, or not getting rinsed thoroughly, maybe hourly wasn't enough?

We cloth and I love it! Though I liked it a lot better before DS started solids.

They are the bamboo type.

Quoting MaryJarrett:

What fibers were you using? Some kids only do well with breathable natural fabrics so wool instead of PUL, cotton/hemp/bamboo instead of microfiber/poly, stuff like that.

I don't know anything about cloth diapering other than the fact I think it's completely disgusting. But I'm always open to new things.

Why do you cloth diaper?

I tried stripping them, did it numerous times actually. I also soaked them over night. Nothing seemed to help :(
