one of the softest cloth diapers i have found is Happy Heiney (sp) Super Soft. I had the hardest time with my son when he was in diapers-cloth and store bought. I just discovered these when I was pregnant with my daughter. I hope you find something that works well for you.. I know how irritating it can me to spend money on diapers that your babies cant wear.

Hi Lizzy - sounds like you did your own form of EC! I was keen to do that, but the reality of twins and EHK and sleep deprivation threw that out the window!
Melanie - Keeping in touch as a group of EHK mums is a great idea - i've joined your facebook page - have you others found it too?

That seemed to cause more blisters. But honestly, the best thing for her during the first many months was to go without a diaper. (she was actually bare bummed for most of her first 2 years!) we don't have carpet in our home so it wasn't a big deal, and she potty trained extremely easily!
Have you ever heard of elimination communication? I don't have the time or patience to do it, but it would have saved Ivy's skin a few bum blisters.
She still gets blisters on her bum, it seems like that is the most blistery area, despite the fact that she wears big girl undies now.
