Tips for helping baby with sore bottom *Update - egg whites work!!*


My DD is almost 3 weeks old and has started getting a wee sore bottom. Its not bleeding (yet) but looks like its gonna start. We put sudacrem on her bottom at each nappy change but it doesnt seem to be doing much. Anyone got suggestions on how to heal her bottom and prevent it hapening again? (never had this with my 2 boys).

UPDATE:
I have stopped the wipe, and am only using water and cotton wool now. i was told by a friend to use egg white (crack an egg and put just the white in a dish with a lid in the fridge) and use cotton wool to put it on babies bottom. The coolnes soothes and the egg white dries in forming a barrier (natural product too) and it has worked a treat! Just dont double dip the cotton wool and use a fresh egg every day.

I use this great cream called bum balm its lavender and really nice but not sure you can get it over there. Otherwise sudocream is good and give the LO some time wriggling around with no diaper on. Thats all I can suggest because its all i have done. Hope it gets better soon.

Just before a bath I usually leave aidan with his nappy off for half an hour. To let the air get to it. He has has a few accidents but nothing that wont wipe up.

Also Jhonson baby wipes with aloe vera in them have cream already inthem and they really help

Weleda does wonderful baby products - we've always used their calendula nappy change cream and I can't recommend it highly enough! Try their website, or places like Waitrose or Holland & Barrett if you fancy giving it a go. Nature Baby products are very good too - also very natural, no nasty chemicals.

Strongly agree - great products. I use the candula (sp) nappy cream

Leave the nappy off as much as you can and change nappys frequently and use a good cream as suggested above.If her bottom is to sore,and the cream slips off put the cream on the nappy just remember you might need to change it a bit more as the absorbancy may be affected.x

I have always used a nappy rash cream called Metanium, and i swear by it, i've used other creams but nothing matches up to this stuff, you can buy it from all chemists and has been on the go for years. its a yellw cream and smells very strong so be careul not to get it on any fabrics. After applying this once, my babys bottom is nearly cleared up.

I'd also recommend Metanium and leaving nappy off as much as possible.

Remember that when using sudocrem, you should only use a tiny amount otherwise it can actually stop the nappy absorbing x
