Diaper Rash Secrets

“Diaper Rash Secrets”

This post is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®, the effective diaper rash cream that treats and prevents diaper rash with every change. Let’s kick some rash!

The American Academy of Pediatrics defines diaper rash as “any rash or irritation in the area covered by the diaper.” Diaper rash doesn’t always look the same. But if your baby’s diaper area looks irritated and red, chances are your baby has it. Their skin may also be a little puffy and warm when you touch it.

Diaper rash may be very mild — a few prickly red spots in a small area — or quite extensive, with tender red bumps that spread to your baby’s tummy and thighs. There’s no need to panic, though: Dealing with diaper rash is part and parcel of baby care, especially in the first year or so of your baby’s life.

Common causes include: too much moisture, chafing or rubbing, yeast infection, bacterial infection, allergic reaction, anti-biotics, and staying in a wet or poopy diaper for too long.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret…. whenever my daughter had diaper rash problems, I made a mix of Lanolin mixed with Butt Paste and her rash was never around long. Also, CAKE IT ON. Don’t be shy.

We are huge fans of Butt Paste in this house. Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® is specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care.

Do you have any diaper rash secrets? How did you keep it away? There are so many “tried and true” methods out there, we would love to hear what yours was!

    I use a little chamomile bath or an aveeno oatmeal bath and let dry out 3-4 times a day for an hour without a diaper. If it does not get better in a day or so. i switch to cloth diapers instead of disposable to get ti cleared up while using regualar ointment.

    I like Boudreaux on Facebook with my username Mary Happymommy.

    Use unscented wipes and expose baby’s bottom to the air by allowing them time to play without their diaper on.

    i’m due in november, so nothing yet, but i’ve heard great things about BBP and natural coconut oil! thanks for the chance!

    Always use vaseline or rash cream to protect from humidity.

    My first is due in a few weeks so i don’t have any mom experience yet, but I do remember that my little brother who was always taking his diapers off never seemed to have diaper rash. Maybe he knew something we didn’t?

    I liked them as June Lisle.

    I am not a mom yet but I have dealt with a lot of diaper rash working at a day care. Poor babies were not happy.

  • Elena on August 2, 2012

    I like Boudreaux on Facebook as Elena Istomina. I used baby powder and baby wipes for sensitive skin

    I buy pampers swaddlers so that I know to change him as soon as I see the blue line. Sarah at realtorsd.com

    I always let baby air out after a change, and then either put on cream or powder them up with baby powder!

  • Anne Lehnick on August 4, 2012

    I soothe a diaper rash by getting my daughter’s bottom clean (gently!) then patting it dry. We let it air out as much as possible before putting on a diaper. But when it’s time for a diaper, we use a moisture barrier cream to protect her rash from what she might do in that diaper. When she has a really bad rash, she seems to like to sit in a warm bath for a bit.

    I like Boudreaux’s on Facebook, too. Thanks!

    I have worked in several day cares and had the opportunity to see many diaper rash products in action. When parents ask for a recommendation, I recommend Butt Paste because it is by far the most effective product I have seen! A thick coating once or twice and it’s licked!

  • Scott on August 5, 2012

    I have no clue what my wife did to prevent diaper rash, but whatever it was must have worked! Our kids seldom had it!

  • Kathleen Conner on August 7, 2012

    use a zinc cream at the first sign of rash, and a baking soda bath to soothe irritation

  • Michelle Spayde on August 7, 2012

    We’ve always used Baking soda baths, and diaper cream.

  • cw on August 7, 2012

    My daughter gets diaper rash a lot….I find that it helps to let her walk around the house naked to air everything out. I should try boudreaux’s.

  • CQ on August 7, 2012

    My mom uses Zinc Cream frequently and mixes it with ointment. It really helps. I really like the Butt Paste and it’s really the only thing that works on me.

  • Jenny on August 7, 2012

    I let my daughter keep her diaper off as much as possible and use cream if needed. We also change her diaper often.
