The skin of a newborn baby is so delicate that even small care errors can cause diaper rash. To prevent this from happening, in the first months of life, the crumbs should be especially attentive to the performance of hygiene procedures and the use of cosmetics.
Change disposable diapers and diapers regularly. If you use gauze diapers, they should be removed immediately after getting wet. Change disposable diapers every 2-3 hours. After the baby comes off "in a big way", do not limit yourself to wiping the bottom with wet wipes. Be sure to wash the crumb under warm water and gently blot all the wrinkles with a soft towel. Give your baby a bath with a decoction of herbs that promote skin healing, such as chamomile and string.
Arrange air baths for your baby as often as possible. Constant presence in disposable diapers leads to diaper rash. And the best assistant in their prevention is fresh air. With each diaper change, leave the baby naked for a few minutes, provided that the room is warm and the baby is not under the open window.
Use only special detergents for washing baby clothes. Rinse your undershirts and diapers thoroughly in water to remove any remaining powder. In the first weeks, iron baby clothes that have direct contact with the baby's skin with a hot iron on both sides.
Do not overuse baby cosmetics. It is not necessary to smear folds with cream and oil very often, this can lead to a decrease in the natural protective function of the body. Zinc cream is best used after consulting a doctor. Pay attention to wet wipes. The impregnation in their composition can cause irritation and an allergic reaction. Try to use wet wipes only when there is no access to warm water.
Diaper rash can occur due to skin irritation on the impregnation or material of the disposable diaper. In this case, try a different diaper brand.
