Re: Pumping every 6hours/Baby getting diaper rash
My son pooped constant little poops for the first few months of his life and his pediatrician said it was totally fine. Yes, it is annoying to have to clean up dirty diapers every hour, but he probably doesn't have a lot of blowouts, right?
We found that he could only tolerate Pampers disposables (he was in daycare 9-10 hours a day and they only did disposables, so cloth wasn't an option for most of the day). The cheap diapers, even though they changed them every 1-2 hours throughout the day, would cause rashes immediately. My SIL also had diaper rash issues with her son (formula fed, BTW) and swore Huggies were the best. So maybe try another brand of diapers.
Another huge help is to give his butt some air every day. We would do diaper free time for about 30 minutes or more every day on an old blanket that could quickly get thrown in the wash. My MIL used to spread out cloth diapers and let her kids roll around on those for diaper free time. The more time we could be out of diapers the better his skin was.
