Irritation between baby's butt cheeks


Hi,

My 3 week old has developed irritation between his buttocks. He has had a couple of instances of this now and we use Bordeaux's Butt Paste and it does go away but then comes back again. Part of me thinks it might be due to the wipes so I am going to try a different brand. He is exclusively breast fed and is still at the stage where his poos are like watery yellow slime - we make sure to change him straight away.

I am going to give him some naked butt time (not looking forward to that little fountain!) but was thiniking what else we could use instead of the wipes. I tried cotton wool and water but it was so time consuming and not v practical. We use disposable diapers.

It is not too bad just now but I really want to combat it before it gets worse. Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

I dont know if this helps at all, but in the first few weeks, my baby had a lot of diaper rashes in the beginning. I don't know if it was related or not, but my baby has a milk protein allergy.

Either way, I just kept on it with changing and butt paste. If it gets too bad though, be sure to call your doc.

Some squares of cotton fabric maybe? I just bought a bunch of facecloths to use for wipes. Not sure what facecloths gets called in other countries, they are squares of towel fabric.

I found coconut oil to help my LO when she had irritated skin, and diaper rashes, its great for lots of things, so if it doesn't work for you it isn't a waste of money.

Poor babies have such sensitive skin, it is so hard!

Oops I forgot one thing.. I also use this for homemade baby wipes, its just with paper towel so you throw it away after you use it.

I really like it, and I find its easier on her skin.

I used olive oil and cotton wool when LO had a sore bum, really gentle but effective at cleaning nappy free time is also great, just put some towels down.

My LO has gotten rash because of the wipes. Sometimes if it's particularly bad I put coconut oil on a cotton ball and wipe her with that instead. Coconut oil is great for diaper rash! Also I use Bag Balm...sounds weird but it works miracles. We went from an open-sore bright red rash to totally normal overnight!

Ours got a bad rash from yeast infection. The doctor gave us prescription cream to use with the regular. They've been fine for awhile now so we just use the regular to prevent.

We used Water Wipes when he was a newborn as they have no chemicals

http://www.amazon.co.uk/WaterWipes-S.../dp/B007L3JHEO

I loved them, but shop around for the best prices.

After he was a bit older we used a non-fragrance nappy wipe. When we used a strong wipe (borrowed it when we were out) he got a bit of nappy rash, I used some nappy rash cream and it got worse!

Now if he is ever a little sore I use Sudacrem which works well - but that is rare.
