this article offers a good explanation but little advice by way of a cure. i found readers comments more helpful in solving the problem. essentially i jut found out that my child has an acute allergy to ammonia which is a component of urine.

i think first of all a baby should be worn diapers only after completing three months. till then cloth nappies are good and safe for the child.baby should be kept clean and should be cleaned immediately after passing stools. it should not be left like that in order to avoid rashes.

use creams with zinc oxide to prevent rash. after rash has subsided use vaseline petroleum jelly during all diaper changes.

i am the mother of 2 baby boys and i use cloth diapers, safety pins, and rubber pants. even when they develope a diaper rash, i continue to diaper them in rubber pants. just be sure to change their diapers frequently and check their diapers every hour or so to make sure they aren't wet or poopy. contrary to all beliefs, rubber pants do not make a diaper rash worse.

for those of you who babysit children who wear regular cloth diapers with rubber pants, you can pull the baby's rubber pants down at the front waistband area of the diapers if the baby has a diaper rash. this allows air to enter and evaporate out of the baby's diapers helping to prevent further irritation.

diaper liners are great and are extra handy for those mothers using regular cloth diapers. over the years i have found that by using diaper liners, staining in the baby's rubber pants and diapers is greatly cut down and there is very little rinsing to contend with.

there is no need to purchase extra "nappy" or diaper pads if you use cloth diapers. if your looking for added absorbency fold another ordinary flat fold cotton diaper into a long pad and use that to line the inside of your baby's diaper. this frugal double diapering method works absolutely great! i use it all the time with my kids.

another great nursery staple is snap-on rubber pants. i keep several pairs of these neatly tucked away inside the baby's dresser drawer for those times when my baby's are battling a bout of diarrhea. no matter how messy their diapers are, i can easily and quickly un-snap their rubber pants to get at their diapers, preventing any smearing that can often occur with old-fashioned pull-on rubber pants. plus, snap-on rubber pants permit added air circulation which helps prevent diaper rash.

it seems that my children get more of a "heat rash" rather than diaper rash.

although i do not use disposable diapers a great helpful tip when refastening disposable diapers is by pinning them with regular cloth diaper safety pins. this will save mothers the added expense of diaper tape.

i have to agree with seema. cloth diapering is best and here is a suggested list of items any cloth diapering mother will need to start. 3-4 dozen flat fold or prefold cotton flannelette diapers. 6 diaper pins. 6-8 pairs of rubber pants. 10 gallon diaper pail with deodorant lid. diaper liners (optional). i use all the above in my home and wouldn't even consider doing it any other way.

i never wake my children throughout the night for a diaper change. usually i can gently pull their rubber pants down to their knees, un-pin and quickly change their diapers, and rustle up their rubber pants again without them even stirring. it's something i have done from the early beginings.

tidemark dermatitis is usually the result of alternate wetting and drying, and is most often confined to the elastic areas of rubber pants. keeping the baby or child dry and clean throughout this time is very important. some baby books recommend that rubber pants not be used during such a time but i tend to disagree. if you choose to continue with rubber pants which i personally would, change diapers immediately after a wetting or soiling and use two diapers whenever possible to help sop up additional wetness.

when dealing with an inflamed type of diaper rash were the baby's skin is beet red and slightly raised or swollen, do not use a zinc oxide ointment! this will only make things worse. with this type of diaper rash simply keep the baby's bottom clean and dry, and use absolutely nothing. using an ordinary hair dryer on low and warm will work wonders for this specific type of diaper rash. i suggest a couple of minutes with the blow dryer at each diaper change. you will be absolutely amazed at how quickly the baby's skin will begin to heal.

sometimes i talk with mothers and they will ask me how do i know when to change my baby's diaper? simple, check. so many incidents of diaper rash is the direct result of mothers and even babysitters not changing diapers regularly. if cloth diapers are being used make a point of checking the baby every 45 minutes to an hour. the most simple way of doing this is to either pull back the front waistband of the rubber pants and look inside, or to lift the baby or child up by one leg much the same as you would when changing diapers, and pull one of the elastic leg holes of the rubber pants out far enough to peer inside the diapers. with disposable diapers simply unfasten one of the tabs to open the diaper up. diaper checking is important so don't forget to incorporate it into your daily baby care routine in your home.

when it comes to diaper rash, laundry detergent can often be one of the culprits. cloth diapers not properly rinsed will often still have a soap residue attached to the cotton fibres, which in itself can cause diaper rash. double rinsing or even better, a half cup of regular white vinegar added to the rinse cycle of your washing machine when laundering cloth diapers will help neutralize and eliminate any left over soap residue left behind. and do note, it may take a couple of washings to remove a build up of detergent in your baby's cloth diapers if you haven't used vinegar before.

rubber pants are also culprit to diaper rash, and hear is one way to disinfect rubber pants from diaper rash causing bacteria. keep a separate diaper pail for rubber pants only. when it's time to wash a load of rubber pants, add (one) table spoon of regular chlorine bleach to the wash water. this will help sterilize diaper rash causing bacteria and eliminate all those germs hiding out within the soft stretchy elasticized openings of the rubber pants. i also recommend "cycling" rubber pants in your home. this is done by using two or three pairs of rubber pants throughout the day, but never using the same pair of rubber pants consecutively. example: when you change your baby rinse out the rubber pants you removed from their diapers and hang them up on the clothesline. while those rubber pants are airing out and drying, you will begin using the second pair of rubber pants. keep alternating between the two or three pairs of rubber pants throughout the day and you will find that the occurance of tidemark diaper dermatitis will be less likely in your home.

i have been using dd ( disposable diaper) since day one for my baby. the only thing is in the night i use dd and in the day i use cd ( cloth diapers). i ahve found that no one type of diapering is really good for mom or baby both. in the night dd soaks more so baby sleeps better and mom too. in the day mom could change the cd as many time baby soils. also if baby takes longer naps in day then use dd as the baby will sleep better and not disturbed by wetness. also a pooped dd should be changed immediately as soon as we see it so keep checking. gerber cloth diapers are best as they do not soil the baby's bed. important to remember is that do not keep using one thing as only using dd is sure to cause rash. also only using cloth diaper is a lot of hassel and baby will get irritated and will feel wet in the night. i think alternate use is best. as it keeps baby dry in night and airy in day. honestly this way i have almost never used a diaper rash cream. and never had a diaper rash to my baby boy. though he had some redness during first few weeks beacuse i was using wipes..... but i think the best is to use wipes to remove soiling and then use cotton balls or soaked wash cloth. one idea i would like to share with all the mom is keep a bottle of water sprayer that is used in saloon. every time your baby soils spray and simply wipe.

when using rubber pants over bulky cloth diapers you have to be very gentle as the rubber in thin gauges tears very easily. i use baby powder to improve the slickness of the rubber. gently work the the leg bands up the leg. do not pull rubber pants on from the waist band as you are accustomed to doing with plastic pants. the gentler you are with rubber pants the longer they will last

i must admit, i was quite rough when it came to pulling on our kids rubber pants after a diaper change. i would either lift the baby up by both ankles, and tug the rubber pants under their little butt with swift tugging movements, or, simply rustle rubber pants back on again over the diaper or diapers by pulling the rubber pants by the elastic waistband, front to back, front to back, with an alternating hand motion, till the rubber pants eventually covered the diaper.

help!! i am going mad trying to figure out nappy rash. my 6m/o has been getting just a few single red spots that look like pimples without the pustular head on them, that just come and go. they appear around the genitls. there is no other reddening, scaling etc, just look like isolated pimples that re appear in same spots. does anyone have any idea what it could be, or if you have experienced same with your child, any advice would really help. dr says candida, but comes back even with using the cream w all nappy changes?
