It is nothing new to hear for the parents – the diaper area can be troublesome. As the baby grows, they become naturally more curious and active, same for their range of movements which broadens daily. While it is solely good news for the little human’s development, every kick and other newly – discovered maneuver only adds to the skin irritation under the nappy.
Irritation in the nappy area leads to diaper rashes when your baby:
- Sleeps in with damp, wet, or poopy diapers.
- Has sensitive skin that rubs off too much against the diaper surface.
- The baby gets older, and diapers turn tighter.
- Has a runny day (diarrhoea).
Furthermore, the problem might get worse if the diaper is already soaked to a deeper degree – then it serves as a perfectly warm and damp environment for bacteria and yeasts to barge in.
Here are a few most common ways to hold off diaper rash in the nappy area:
Change diapers frequently
Feel and check your baby’s diaper as often as you can, and change as soon as it dampens or gets wet.
Pat, not rub
While cleaning the nappy area during diaper changes, make sure that you pat the area clean and dry, rather than rubbing. A baby’s skin is highly sensitive, and rubbing could result in further irritation in the nappy area.
Opt for wipes
It is recommended to use organic, mild wipes that do not contain any fragrances or alcohol during cleansing. This helps in the prevention of diaper rash that may otherwise arise due to skin’s reaction to synthetic fragrances.
Use a mild cleanser
Whether it is to wipe off poop, or refresh the baby bum after every diaper change, use mild cleansers that contain only natural ingredients and plain water. The one thing that is needed in such a scenario is an effective, multi – tasking yet gentle solution which we are happy to introduce. Our Soothe & Refresh Baby Bottom Wash provides soothing relief for the baby’s delicate skin while keeping it clean and fresh at the same time during every diaper change.
