Babies bottom....

I am babysitting a one year old. She has had a bad stomach yesterday and today. Her bottom is so bad she is starting to bleed on parts. Any home remedies that I could try?

  • I do have vaseline. The mother had some type of cream, but it's not helping.

  • cream sucks. make sure the baby's bottom is dry then apply the vaseline, it will repel moisture and help her bottom heal

  • wash her bum with plain water and cotton the wipes can be scratchy and often contain alcohol
    when her stomach calms down- if you can leave her bum naked it'll help

  • Balmex always worked for me. I put it on thickly and the next diaper change noticed a huge improvement.
