  • Put Balmex on it. The thick one in the tub. That always worked for me.

  • apply diaper rash cream regularly, but also try feeding her something with fiber in it. Bananas help. Also apple sauce (not juice or regular apples..but the sauce has pectin in it which helps bind.) GL!

  • Have her play in the bathtub of warm water. It will sooth and get it real clean.

  • Also, try warming the wipes, and using wipes without any perfumes or additives in them...the sensitive skin type. GL!

  • Yep, lather on some Balmex. Applesauce, pasta, bananas may slow the dirty diapers - and stick to water if you can rather than juice for the time being! Warm baths will help as well. Keep an eye on it; if it starts to look "raw" it may be infected; the pediatrician may prescribe some Nystatin for it. Good luck!

  • Give a bath with oatmeal. You can buy the oatmeal packs made by Aveeno (or the generic brand) in the bath section at your local store. Or you can just buy regular oatmeal and grind it up. This helps a lot. Instead of using wipes, switch to soft paper towels with water or a warm rag.

  • Have you tried using a rash cream or maybe switching to sensitive baby wipes?

  • Does she drink anything red? sometimes the red dye in those drinks can cause that. My daughter has that problem. find whatever is the best cream for their rear and use it. and jut keep changing them as soon as you know they pooped
