Moms, do your babies get diaper rash?I wrote this post last year, but I've been reading a lot about some the new diapers causing severe rashes. I even had a woman come in the shop the other day saying her daughter got such bad rashes they have given up putting her in diapers! So, I thought I'd update it and re-post :)
We use Pampers (see HERE for my diaper debate) and have never had any problems; with rashes or with leaks! With that being said...
Lucy & Penny have never had diaper rash (knock on wood!) I wanted to share my little secret with you all... When I was a baby, I would get terrible diaper rash. My mom used Desitin but I still kept getting it. :( Then my aunt told my mom that she used something different and her babies didn't have the same problem. She used Vaseline! So my mom started using it as well. Voila! No more diaper rash!
So, what do I use on my little midgets? Vaseline, of course! Specifically, I use Vaseline Nursery Jelly. Its just the same as regular petroleum jelly but with a fresh powder scent. I put a generous amount of Vaseline on the girls tushies every time I change their diapers. From front to back, making sure to cover all the skin that is under the diaper. Easy as that! If I start to see a little bit of redness I cover it with Desitin Overnight Cream and then put Vaseline on top of that. Stops the red immediately!
I hope you all have not had diaper rash issues with your babies, but if you do, I hope you try my little trick! And the Vaseline is really cheap :)
NOTE: These are my opinions and I have not been compensated in anyway for them. I realize everyone has their own opinions... And I'd love to hear them :)
