Quoting Mrs.Dani:" I think I am just a little tired, so if I took this the wrong way correct me. My son isn't a newborn anymore? He is almost 11 months now. "


No I know he isn't newborn, I was telling you to try the cloth and water, as it helped my youngest, well I should say, both of my kids, wipes are NO good.



Meh, sorry if you don't know what I mean, good luck,

Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely need to be switching my wipes.

I think it was this sentence that confused me "BUT she was a newborn and I hear that's *pretty* normal" I thought you were saying that him having a diaper rash was normal because he was a newborn. :oops: It's 4 a.m. and I need to get some sleep. Sorry.

If the destin doesn't work it's probably yeast and my pedi said the OTC meds you would get for yourself work just as well as what they would prescribe if you did want to save a trip to the dr. DDs rashes are just red but if she has a yeast issue it gets bumpy. The pedi said this time of year is when the most babies get yeast issues.

Try coconut oil. Extra virgin and unrefined. Pastes never helped my son because I'd have to wipe him more and that would make it worse so I switched to coconut oil. It helped a lot

this might sound crazy...but crisco works. dr said it helps pee and poop just kinda run off so it doesnt stick and irritate the skin

Quoting Mrs.Dani:" Would it really last 4-5 days if it is an allergy or something acidic? "

if hes eaten the same food that caused it over those days... or at least the 1st 2 days...
an allergy would last a few days... depending on how bad the rash is itll take longer to heal and therefore will stick around longer
