Diaper Changing Question from a Newbie

I have never changed a diaper in my life and I am weeks away from our first baby. I have a couple questions. Can I use baby wipes from the start? I read online that you should use a warm washcloth for the first couple months because of sensitvity etc. That sounds crazy. Can't I just use sensitive skin wipes? Second, do I use baby powder and/or desitine type cream with every change? How do I know when to just change it vs. using a cream or powder? Any helpful tips would be great! Thanks in advance for your help, S.

Baby's Poo Burned Her Bottom :(

My 15month old daughter had a poo that burned her bottom so badly there are even 2 small spots where the skin is a little broken from blistering.

It happened late yesterday afternoon at daycare, and when I got her home to bathe her she couldn't even sit in the water and cried from pain, it was awful.

Diaper Rash with Cloth Diapers

Hi all! I am new to cloth diapers (I started using them when my two week old daughter came home from the hospital) and was wondering what to do for diaper rash. I am using prefolds and a few pockets for overnight, but I have heard that the traditional diaper creams like balmex and such will coat the diapers and make them pretty useless. My little girl has a TERRIBLE rash on her bottom (very red and bumpy!) and I was wondering what I should do for her...I've been letting her air it out for most of the day but was wondering what I can use ...
