How to deal with diaper rash
This means changing the tot as soon as possible--even if the diapers are only wet.
Be gentle--use wipes that are alcohol and fragrance-free. If the rash is severe, use a quirt bottle of water. Allow the area to air dry.
Apply a zinc oxide diaper cream if the skin is always red. Layer it on like frosting a cake. Remove it only at the end of the day.
If you see blisters or pus, or the baby is screaming and hard to console, consult a doctor.
Babies wear diapers for three years or so--you need to develop a routine to keep the little rugrats comfy.
I figured I changed 5,000 diapers...You have to be in it for the distance.
