Doctor recommends nakedness

it's for a diaper rash. What's a good way to do this that doesn't result in pee( or worse part of the issue is that he's had diarrhea) on everything?

  • Idk about that. When I let my kids run naked, they don't pee. But if he has diahrea, that would be a different story.... how old?

  • can you put him on a towel on the floor, maybe put a trash bag on it if you're afraid he'll poop all over

  • How's the weather where you are? You could take him outside and let him play while he's naked.

  • First, how old is your son, second instead of naked use cloth training pants and make sure to check him every 30 min to see if he needs changed. If he is old enough put hiim on a potty chair or seat and help him learn to go potty there.

  • Big thick not-special blanket or towel on the floor & a close watch! I did it frequently and you really just have to keep a close eye on them. For me it was easiest to get a longer period of nakey time after giving them a bath.

  • It's summer, so put him outside. I allways used the play-pen for this cause I can hose that down.

  • Outside fresh air is really great for rashes. We would be very good about slathering on the creme and head for the outside. At least it is summer. You can lay down some towels, place a bedroom sheet over them, lay blocks or other toys of interest and let your child play. Some times switching diaper brands is a hood idea to try as well if you have been with the same brand for some time. Cutting down on juices if your child has any juice is a good idea too.
