This post is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®, the effective diaper rash cream that treats and prevents diaper rash with every change. Let’s kick some rash!
My littlest is now a little over nine months old, and we kind of skimmed over baby food and started introducing more table foods to her. It’s fun to see her reaction to new foods, whether she likes it or pretty much tells us in her own way, no thank you.
Along with trying new foods, we’re also finding out what her body may not react great to. In terms of what comes out the other end. New foods equals diaper rash.
Diaper rash from starting solids and teething
We have been using the same brand of diapers for months now, so I know for a fact her diaper rash is not from the diapers. However, sometimes when you switch to a new brand, it can happen. I know you have a better chance of no diaper rashes using cloth diapers, but I’m too lazy about washing them, so disposables diapers it is.
The “experts” say that you are supposed to introduce a new food to baby and wait a few days, to see if they have any kind of reaction to it. With our first daughter, I did this. Now that we’re on our third, she just pretty much eats whatever I give her, whenever.
On top of trying new foods, she has also been teething for about a month and a half now. Her bottom two are in, and the top two are coming in now. Teething also plays a huge part in diaper rashes.
How to get rid of diaper rashes
There are a few things I do to help with her diaper rashes. One, is letting them go without a diaper sometimes. This is harder to do when they are mobile, and you don’t really want pee and poop all over your house - I mean who does? Instead, I will stick her in her crib, butt naked, and let the rash get some air.
Giving her a bath often helps clean the area. Plus, it’s a great to add into our night time routine before bed.
Lastly, I use diaper rash cream. This is usually my last resort, after airing and bathing the rash. I rub just a little cream, like Boudreaux Butt Paste on her bum, before I put a clean diaper on her. By the next diaper change, I can already see a difference.
Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care. Skin protectant with 16% Zinc Oxide and Peruvian Balsam. Treats diaper rash and soothes irritated skin.
If you’re not a fan of diaper rash creams that have a smell, this is probably not the right product for you. I don’t mind it at all, and it even kind of smells like a baby to me. Plus, buying Bourdreaux’s Butt Paste in their travel sizes, makes it easy to throw into your diaper bag or take with you when traveling with baby.
