My baby keeps getting nappy rash

March 10, 2017

Repeated cases of nappy rash can be upsetting for babies and parents. Follow this checklist to make sure you're doing all the right things to stave off a flare up:

  1. Switch to using pure water dipped in cotton wool to wipe your bubba's bottom clean. Some nappy wipes contain alcohol and other ingredients that irritate delicate skin, making it feel sore to the touch. Stop using them and opt for good old H20 instead.
  2. Always apply a nappy rash balm over the affected area after every nappy change. Baby's Everything Body Balm is perfect for the job because it's a blend of natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin. The mild formulation soothes discomfort and forms a waterproof barrier on the skin to those irritants that can exacerbate diaper rash.
  3. Allow your baby to play freely without a nappy on for a few minutes each day. The fresh air will encourage the healing process. Just lay a towel under them to catch any accidents!
  4. If things are still not getting any better try switching to towelling nappies. Disposable nappies are extremely absorbent, which means parents don't always feel the need to change them immediately. Nappies made of a towel material are not as absorbent and are made of natural fibres like cotton that don't irritate the skin. Frequently changing your little one out of dirty nappies will reduce the skin's contact with irritants and prevent inflammation.
