(Please read Failure and Oh, Diapers before pursuing this post.)
I've been washing my cloth diapers differently, again, and using the remains of my Allen's detergent. At night, I put on the Huggie's Naturals disposable diapers and that seems to be working just fine. The other day, I decided to put another set of disposables on them after I took their nighttime diapers off just for kicks. When I took those diapers off to prepare them for their naps, I noticed that Piper had peed only once or twice and Heidi hadn't peed at all (in about a 3 hour span) yet she was RED. WHAT?! Granted, this was no where near the caliber of what we've been experiencing, but it was certainly redness that didn't need to be there. Remember, this was a disposable diaper that wasn't even wet! How does this happen??
On the bright side, the coconut oil has just about cleared both of them up completely. What is left of the rashes they had is hardly noticeable at all, which makes me very happy.
Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions too quickly or I just need to vent about how seeing that redness made me feel. Honestly, though, what else is there? Will I have to potty train both of them right now? Should I follow Heidi around with a bucket? Hook her up to a catheter (yeah right, can you imagine that? Ha.)? Yes, I'm feeling punchy, please don't hold it against me. :)
