  • Just try a different brand. Most kids who don't do well with Huggies, do fine with Pampers. And that's true for the other way around too. My daughter couldn't stand Pampers but did fine with Huggies.

  • If your daughter is getting a rash from Huggies diapers then try switching to another brand named diaper such as Pampers.

  • Sometime it's the sents they use in the diapers. I would try sensitive diapers or the natural ones... otherwise you might need to go to cloth if it continues to be a problem.

  • I actually just went on a trip with my daughter and used Huggies while I was away...the first time my 8 mo. old has ever had a diaper rash. I'm blaming the diapers. I regularly use the Kirkland Brand (Costco's generic brand) and have never had an issue. If you have a Costco membership...get their diapers...they're great. If not...pampers is probably the closest.

    *Make sure you let her air out after the bath and at diaper changes. The best thing for a diaper rash is air.

    Good luck.

  • I use Luvs and my baby's bottom hardly ever gets diaper rash. They leak less than other brands and are less expensive.

  • My mother had the same problem with me. She ended up having to use cloth diapers due to all the rashes I got from several brands.

  • I had my baby on Huggies and Pampers til he was almost 5 months, just last week. They made him red and everything but I stayed with Pampers because it was such a popular brand so I thought it must be the best for his little butt lol but then my hubby and I were at walmart and decided to just try some of their White Cloud diapers.. and the weirdest thing is that his butt is not red as it was with the Name Brands! LOL we're pretty happy too because my baby poops at 4-6 times a day. maybe just get a small bag and try?

  • The ONLY diapers that didn't give my dd a major heiny rash where Costco store brand and BJ's store brand. Also I used triple paste cream on her- its really thick- recommended to me by the pediatric dermatologist for her- its expensive but it works amazing!
