yeast in cloth diapers

I thought DS had heat rash but now I'm thinking it's yeast. Our other DS hasn't gotten it even though I wash their cloth diapers together so do you think I need to do treat the diapers anyway? Is vinegar in the wash enough or should I put them all out in the sun?

Or could I wash them with some ACV instead of sunning them?

Since its summer, try and go diaperless as much as possible. I believe the normal diaper washing and sun drying.should do it, but adding distalled vinegar will help too :)

Also, you can put probiotics on baby's bottom too

You can add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to the wash to kill yeast. Grapefruit seed oil too, I think.

My son just kicked yeast a couple weeks ago. I vinegared them a few washes and he hasn't gotten it again so I assume I kicked it

We used coconut oil on his but every.single.change. And generously. I stripped all my diapers and have been putting them through a 2nd hot wash with white vinegar ever since. No more flare ups. Want to keep that nasty yeast rash at bay! Probably overkill but... It's working.

I stop cloth completely when ds has yeast, this is his second, and I strip them before I use them again because if I don't, it comes back.

I would strip the diapers and sun them. I can be over-cautious with things though, lol.

I would treat them if it's yeast.

I personally would do a diluted bleach soak and then sun them.

Grapefruit Seed Extract. (GSE)

It kills spores. It is better than chlorine bleach.

Go to the vitamin section of your health food store. :)




You're welcome.

I have a big bottle :) I love this stuff!

How much do you put in the laundry?
