Diaper rashes?? It's so frustrating...he just got over a yeast rash right before thanksgiving and now he has another rash..urgh! Before I was using a wet cloth to clean his bum and now I use sensitive huggies/ pampers wipes....is anyone in the same boat? Why can't we go a few months without a diaper rash????

Try squirting breastmilk on his butt at night. It should help clear up almost over night.

If its a yeast rash, won't it do more harm than good? I've been putting yeast cream and buttpaste but I guess it takes awhile

We haven't had much issue with rash. My middle guy started getting them & I switched to Lansinoh wipes, never another rash. If he's getting them often, look at switching diaper brands (or detergent for cloth) & wipes.

when ds was a baby until about 14 months we dealt with rashes and yest infections all.the.time! it was never ending. i use triple paste by dr.sears  my dr, gave the prescription for it and the pharmacy filled it. instead on one large tube, i paid for them to make 3 small ones. so if by chance it got contaminated only one small tube had it and i had the other 2. i paid 10.00 for target to do that.

  • Mix your own - if you can't get a prescription, try mixing these together in the palm of your hand, then apply to baby's bottom:
    • Zinc oxide
    • White petroleum ointment
    • Acid mantle
    • Aluminum acetate (Burrow's solution)
    • If you cant find Acid Mantle, then use Lansinoh (a lanolin ointment). It is available in the diaper cream section of drug stores.


found on dr.sears site. under diaper rash.

i also, used an anti-fungal with balmex clear diaper cream. and grape seed extract diluted in a spray bottle to spray a little spray in ds diaper. all this helped keep it at bay.
