PLEASE, what is the best way to treat chapped balls and butt of my precious 1 year old! adult content

It looks and I can tell by him how painful it is! I work weekends, and a few times when i pick him up from the sitter I notice the next day he has a lil butt rash but this time it's on his cute lil balls and its a lot worse. What are the best pain relieving remedies for this? my poor baby =(

  • You should make sure your sitter is changing him enough and properly wiping.

  • Let him air out between changes... seriously - this helps better than anything... then apply the butt paste or baby powder before putting his diaper back on.

  • Dr. Smiths Diaper ointment. It is about 7 bucks a jar..but it goes a very long way. If his diapers have elastic on the sides cut them in 3 or 4 places so his bottom gets more air. Next, I'd be finding a new sitter.

  • Bag Balm if it is available in your area, works wonders. It was originally used for cows udders and is natural and does a great job!

  • Corn starch works really well. It's better than most baby powders

  • Maybe your wipes are too astringent. Check the list of ingredients. Also could be the type of wipe material. Do you use any specific brand or have you changed brands. I know with pampers brand my children got hives.

    For the dryer feel to heal first put on zinc oxide powder, it's pink.
