Okay, my 11 month old has a rash. Its all over her vaginal area and then extending towards the back. Just swollen and red, not dots, so I am thinking not a yeast infection. She has pooped A LOT more lately since eating more solids and introducing newer foods. I hope this is a good method to deal with this, as it is her first real diaper rash and first one I have ever dealt with...1. Don't wipe her. 2. Rinse her in bathtub every few hours and change often 3. Let air dry 4. Put loose fitting diaper on
Is this a good plan or do I need to buy one of those creams? My mom used to put Vaseline on me when I was younger and I'd get heat rash, but I am thinking that wouldn't be too good of an idea with her, because it keeps her wet down there.

My doc told me A & D original is the way to go and I have found it works wonders on my son. I would ask her doc first to make sure though.
