Calendula oil is believed to have antifungal,anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that might make it useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and relieving diaper rash.
Start with a clean bottom
First, it’s important to keep your baby’s skin as clean and dry as possible. That means changing wet or soiled diapers right away. A dry diaper will be one of the best ways to prevent your baby from developing a rash. Make sure to check the diaper at least every two hours. In newborns or babies with diarrhea, you will need to check even more frequently.
If you use wipes during diaper changes, make sure you choose ones that are mild, gentle, and designed for baby’s special needs. We love Parasol wipes because they are crafted to be gentle for cleaning frequently.
You may prefer to use a soft, wet washcloth to gently clean the diaper area. Warm water should do the job; use a mild baby cleanser only if the stool does not come off easily.
Whether you use wipes or a washcloth, it’s important to avoid irritating skin. Use your wipe or washcloth to gently pat skin, being careful not to rub.
If you have already applied a diaper rash treatment at the previous diaper change, don’t worry about removing the ointment. Clean the soiled, outer layer and leave the ointment on the skin to avoid damaging the skin as it heals.
washie TIP: Expose Baby's bare bottom to air for some naked time whenever you can. When you are at home, allow your baby to go without a diaper for a little while to let her bottom air-dry and then apply a thick barrier of protection when you do re-diaper.
Allow diaper area to dry
Diaper rash is caused by wetness and irritation, and can affect areas such as around your baby's bum, thighs and genitals. Babies may feel discomfort and pain from diaper rash, as their diapers can rub these sensitive areas. One key step to healing diaper rash is keeping the area clean and dry. Once you have finished cleaning your baby’s bottom, pat it dry (no rubbing!) before applying a thick barrier of protection.
Apply Diaper Cream during every diaper change
Applying a protective barrier protects the skin from further injury while creating an optimal environment to allow the skin to heal. It will also help prevent friction from the diaper. Born from the best organic botanicals on earth, protect your little one's diaper area with nature's most effective barrier cream.
Just apply a thin coat pf Diaper Protection Cream to the diaper area after each change and bath.
washie TIP: Make sure that diapers aren't fastened too tightly.
