  • go to the huggies website and they wills end you 3 dollar off coupons for those diapers. i prefer huggies because they send coupons all the time and pampers can be stingy.

  • are you sure it's the diaper? what kind of diaper cream do you use? most contain zinc oxide, i'm allergic to it as well as my daughter. try one without zinc oxide and see if that helps.

  • Instead of using the cream...use powder...if your baby is sweating to much there without you knowing will do that.that could be why its breaking out and then going away when the diapers off.

  • she is 6 months old, we have tried the corn starch and powder, in light of my grandmother and mother in law so since the ped suggested it, you guys wouldnt suggest it???

  • Poor little baby bootie! Hope she gets better soon. I have always used generic diapers (Target) and desitin overnight for my lil ones. That desitin has 40% zink, change diaper often and bath everynight. Airing out as long/much as poss.

  • You could try seventh generation natural chlorine free diapers and all natural diaper rash creme and/or all natural baby powder.

  • I have always used walmart brand (parents choice) and have never had a problem. I hope you can get to the bottom of this all soon i think you should bring her back in to the doctors and see what they have to say if nothing is working then something out there has to work. Right??!! Good Luck.
