It’s virtually inevitable that you – and, unfortunately, your baby – will deal with diaper rash. Hot weather, cold weather, newborn or toddler, diaper rash is one of those things that is tough to prevent and no fun for anybody. But with vigilance and preparation you can help to prevent it, or at least to nip it in the bud.
Since I know I am not the only mom with this concern, I have a few tricks to keep your baby’s bottom clean, clear and dry.
Here are my tips for parents when dealing with diaper rash on their babies –
- Keep your child clean and dry by changing his or her diaper frequently.
- Use an ointment that forms a barrier on the skin to protect your child’s skin from stool and urine. My personal recommendation is DESITIN® Rapid Relief Zinc Oxide Diaper Rash Cream, which forms the much needed protective layer on your baby’s skin to soothe and relieve rash discomfort. When using DESITIN® products use as directed – “Do not get into eyes. Stop use and ask a doctor if: condition worsens, symptoms last for more than 7 days or clear up and occur again within a few days. Keep out of reach of children.”
- Put your child’s diaper on loosely.
- Diaper-free time! – can we maybe expand on this tip a little bit? Give it more of a narrative.
