  • Add yogurt into their diet. If you are giving cereal, use plain yogurt to mix it with. it will help balance the ph which can cause rash. Also take the plain yogurt and put directly ont he rash.
    You can also ask the pedi to perscribe an ointment.
    Leave diaper off as much as you can and start cleaning with a wet washcloth and not wipes as the chemicals can irritate it further.

  • Leave her diaper off for a while. Put her in a cloth one for a bit. Put breastmilk on it and let it air dry. Olive oil. Resinol diaper cream (it's all that worked on my son).
