  • have you tried anything already? if you have already tried diaper rash ointment but the redness persists then you should check with baby's doctor, it could be yeast.

  • Have you tried anything? Different creams and powders may help, but the best thing I've found is AIR. Put a blanket down, cover the "hose" with something, and let him lay around naked! My guy LOVES it!

  • Whenever Lila's butt is red I use Boudreaux's Butt Paste or Desitin. Clears it right up. If regular diaper rash cream doesn't work I'd call the pediatrician.
