Diaper rash seems to be the enemy when it comes to changing your little one’s diaper. We’ve had our rough days of dealing with the terrible pain that comes from down below, and I’m sharing our secrets for how to treat a diaper rash.
This post is sponsored by Boogie Bottoms No-Rub Diaper Rash Spray but all thoughts and opinions are my own. My family loves this product and we hope to spread the word with other families!
Our house (knock on wood) has been lucky enough to avoid the inevitable ear infections and Hand Foot Mouth, but when it comes to diaper rash, we just can’t seem to avoid it. Oliver is nowhere near interested in potty training yet, so we are stuck with diaper duty until then.
These are a few of my secrets to treating severe diaper rash:
Oatmeal Bath – This one is pretty easy, but if I start to notice Oliver is getting diaper rash, I grab a few packets of our favorite oatmeal bath. He doesn’t notice the difference in the bath water, but it seems to sooth the rash and usually within a few hours the inflammation is gone.
Change Often – Imagine yourself as a baby. It would not be ideal to sit in a dirty diaper for more than 5 minutes. So change that booty often and you’ll be able to avoid any acids irritating their bottoms.
Bare Booty – Warning, this can get messy. But essentially what causes the diaper rash is from irritation of the diaper and the acids from bowel movements. Like I mentioned above, change diapers often, but when worse comes to worse just let them run around saying “naked body, naked body”! Free entertainment right?!
Diaper Cream – We hit the jackpot when we discovered that Boogie Wipes now just released Boogie Bottoms No-Rub Diaper Rash Spray. This product is AMAZING. Boogie Bottoms is a diaper ointment in a spray bottle. This means you don’t get your hands dirty! I have tried all the tricks to avoid the paste getting all over my fingers and this new product is legit the best invention. What took so long?! Check it out on Amazon and grab yourself the 3-pack!
I am by no means a professional. I’m just a Mama looking for products and ideas to make our days go easier.
