whenever i put huggies nappies on my DD for a few days or more she gets nappy rash. i change them regularly but it always happens! babylove nappies seem to not cause this problem. has anyone else found this?

Nope!
I have used huggies since birth and my DS rarely gets nappy rash (only when teething).
Like everything every baby is different so perhaps huggies just don't agree with your child.

she is teething but i think the common element is the nappy. not happy about it, i like them because of the wetness indicator (although it's not on all sizes). oh well, back to babyloves!

How old is your bub? When my DD was a newborn we were given some of those Huggies with the wetness indicator crappy thing. I took the nappy off her and it looked like she had burns!! We went on to use cloth, but then started on disposables a little while ago and while DD can handle Huggies now, she gets nappy rash from the Baby Love. Recently we did a nappy trial and it had some Babylove in there and we had to stop using them as the nappy rash got very bad, very quickly. So definitely possible!

Yes, huggies would send DS's bum red raw within 8 hours of using them from 10days old. Issue cleared up with cloth nappies. Tried huggies again at 5 weeks and 11. 5 was a disaster and 10 was just fine.

When DD was a baby, she got nappy rash when I ate certain food.

Not here. I've used huggies from birth and in over 2 years of wearing nappies, DS has not once had nappy rash.

I had the opposite problem, other brands would give DD nappy rash.

DS always reacted badly to Huggies.  He would be red and sore within a few changes but Baby Love and Aldi brand were fine.

It really does depend on the child and whether they are going to react to the chemicals/ingredients in the nappies.

My dd is fine in huggies, but if we use comfy bots or aldi ones she ends up with eczema.
Does anyone know if the use chemicals in nappys that's why some children react to different brands?

Yep, DD got super bad rash from huggies, didn't react at all to the ones that came in a nappy cake (plain white- no idea which brand) and has been fine with comfy bots for over night use. We use cloth during the day but if we have to use the comfy bots during the day as well she'll get a rash.
