  • Have you ever heard of California baby?? If you have a mother's near you get the little jar-- its yellow and its an all natural cream---

    It works wonders!!!! And is so good for the baby's skin....

  • I would put some petroleum jelly on it, if nothing it will keep it protected against wetness or rubbing in his diaper.

  • I would NOT use the neosporin. Try jelly if anything.
