Diaper Rash Solutions

So my poor little baby has some issues with diaper rash. In my struggles, we have tried every brand of diaper, wipes, ointment, etc. We have had major success with Boudreaux’s Butt-Paste, all brands of sensitive wipes, home made wipes, and Huggies brand and cloth diapers. He also went through a whole tube of anti-yeast cream for his bottom. Cortisone cream helps with the pain.

We have also changed foods, such as cutting out citrus and apple juice, etc. However, the struggle still goes on and at least twice a month he breaks out with another flare-up. Thanks to my RN mother-in-law, however, we use this trick to ease the redness, swelling, and pain.

BAKING SODA BATH! We throw him (ok, so we don’t actually THROW the child) in a warm bath with 1/2 cup baking soda. It softens the water and neutralizes the skin. It is fantastic! He feels so much more comfortable after a particularly bad poopy-diaper-on-rash incident.

Other things that are supposed to help that we don’t really notice a difference with are letting him go bare butt for a few hours and changing diapers frequently.

For a free sample of fore mentioned Boudreaux’s go here.

What have you tried? Do you have anything that works fairly well? Please share!

  1. I have a cheap and easy cure for diaper rash and I swear it works. I have 4 children and didn’t discover this until the last one. It works better than anything I ever tried.

    Put a cup of white flour in a nonstick frying pan. On medium heat, cook the flour, constantly stirring, until it turns brown. It will smell burned. Let it cool . Put in baby’s diaper just like you would powder but use LOTS it the diaper will be on overnight. It doesn’t exactly have that sweet clean baby smell but I swear it works. All moisture and acid is absorbed and kept away from baby’s skin.
