As baby urine n poop will have some toxcins.. so initially they may get rashes.. Apply coconut oil after cleaning... this will help to keep baby skin hydrated and nothing sticks. During summers... rashes are due to sweat..Wipe every now and then. And wipe gently...not with pressure.

only way to avoid all these problems is by using coconut oil. whatever the weather conditions maybe please use coconut oil generously and when you change the nappy must apply a layer of oil. coconut oil has healing power and works wonders.

Use a good rash cream like Sebamed rash cream to deal with the rashes first. Keep the baby diaper free for as much time possible. Once the rashes are cured follow proper diaper hygiene. Use a wet wipe/cloth to clean the baby and then apply coconut oil or Vaseline petroleum jelly everytime you change the diaper. Also try to keep baby diaper free 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening each day.

dear fkm, use wet wipes to clean after pee and poop, very gently. use a thin layer of vaseline on the rashes. if it looks very bad, consult with paediatrician...

fkm give him nappy free time after or before bath at least 2hours...clean him with antibacterial baby wipes (pigeon, Mee Mee, Himalayan etc) after every nappy change...dry his genital and bum properly before putting nappy as lil wet bum or nappy can also cause rash... massage ur baby with coconut oil twice a day...wash his nappy and clothes in Dettol disinfectant.... always put fresh nappy or clothes on baby...asha chaudhry thanks for the tag


ohh dear. use baby rash cream.every time. u change. and i think ur prob. is u may be not checking if baby had poop or pee.   it could be d reason if tht remains like dat for a longer time.it causes rash. so immediately change by checking if he had done anythng or not.

i m also using nappy pads.. give your baby some diaper free tym whenever you change diaper.. make sure to change them after 3-4 hours or whenever soiled.. you can use wipes and clean gently every time you change and apply coconut oil or Vaseline or diaper rash cream..

i agree with sheeba..  i have also used vaseline fr my daughter when recently she got rashes.  it cured in three days..  wipe the area with wet wipes properly, pat dry and thn apply thin layer of vaseline.
