Anyone have good home remedy ideas for diaper rash? My daughter has one that is on it's 2nd day and even stronger than yesterday. It's wearing both of us down with her screaming, crying, and discomfort.
I've tried the butt paste which seemed to work wonders for my 1st daughter but has had no effect on my 2nd daughter!
By the way, she is almost 1 year old.

GIve her a bath and let her go without a diaper on for a while, put some vaseline on, good luck.

No vaseline! Petroleum is very bad for the skin and does not let the area breathe at all. The BEST thing for diaper rash is AIR. Make sure she is cleaned well with a wash cloth and plain water (maybe a tad of soap) but NO WIPES. They burn horribly and can make the diaper rash worse or often cause an allergic reaction in the first place.
Let her bottom air out as much as possible. When you do put on a diaper, make sure she is completely dry (fan her bottom with a peice of fabric or the diaper) before putting it on. Changer her immediately. You can also look into diapers that are scente and dye free, additives are notorious for diaper rash.Pure Aloe gel is excellent! For oils us something natural like shea butter, coconut oil, or cocoa butter.
