Every Mum Dreads Nappy Rash
Woe is the baby with the red bum! Their delicate skin is pure agony and every wee adds to the dreaded burn. They’ll let you know just how much they’re suffering with endless tears and desperate, pain-filled sobs. Quite frankly, we don’t blame them. It’s a rough time for both mum and bubs alike.
What Causes Nappy Rash?
According to the Royal Children’s Hospital; ‘the most common cause of nappy rash (sometimes called diaper dermatitis) is irritation. Constant moisture and rubbing can cause damage to the skin. This is further irritated by bacteria, yeasts (e.g. candida or thrush), detergents, urine and faeces. Nappy rash is worsened by diarrhoea, some acidic foods, not changing the nappy often enough and plastic pants.
Help! Tips to Prevent Nappy Rash!
- Use good quality disposable nappies
- Nappies should be changed often (about 5 to 7 times a day in babies under 12 months of age), reducing the amount of time that urine and faeces are in contact with the skin.
- At each nappy change your baby’s bottom should be gently cleaned with cotton wool or Chux-type cloths, dampened with lukewarm water.
- A barrier cream should be thickly applied at each nappy change.
- Try to let your child have as much nappy free time as possible.
- Talcum powder should not be used on nappy rash.
