What to do when your child has nappy rash

Friday, 11 November 2011  |  Admin

Poor little Aerin has a red, sore bum. She's teething and as a result has been having lots of vicious, watery poos, which has resulted in a sore bottom for her. (Mainly because I missed a poo and she had sat in it for a little while, ouch!)
Nappy Rash is one of those things that I think most children will get at one stage or another, either when they're teething, or maybe have an upset tummy. It's caused by stale wee and poo being in contact with their delicate skin and can happen whether you're using cloth OR disposable nappies. (Aerin is in a combination of both at the mo.)
So if you find your LO has a sore bottom, what can you do?
1. STOP using disposable wipes if the skin is irritated as you'll just make the irritation worse by applying a load of chemicals on top!
2. Swap to either cotton wool and water, or lovely washable Cheeky Wipes which will gently cleanse without increasing soreness
3. Give as much nappy off time as possible. I know this isn't always easy, but even 20 mins really seems to help and the air really helps the rash dry out. If this isn't possible we have used the hairdryer on low heat setting after nappy change helps (also really good for cracked nipples when you start breastfeeding!)
4. Change nappies more frequently than normal as your LO might have done a sneaky 'no-smell' poo and be sitting in it....
5. Use a barrier cream to protect their bottom. I like Sudocream, or a medicated one like Metanium, but if anyone has recommendations for good 'green' creams, I'd love to try them?
