Mix together Aquaphor, Triple Antibiotic Ointment (any brand like neosporin), and Triple Paste (diaper cream). Mix these together into their own container.
Ask your pediatrician for Nystatin yeast cream or you can use over the counter Lotrimin AF (the foot fungus ointment).
Alternate diaper changes with the two creams. First change you use the concoction in step 1, next diaper change you use the yeast cream only.
Make sure baby gets daily baths to keep those booties super clean.
Use ONLY sensitive baby wipes or a warm washcloth for diaper changes. I ONLY use Pampers Sensitive wipes because his skin is so temperamental.
- Making sure baby has good "flora" in their diet, add in some yogurt for those good cultures
- Letting the butt have open air time as often as you can, which is a challenge with a baby but a few minutes a few times a day can really help.
- Frequent diaper changes until cleared up, I go 2-3 hours maximum
- If you aren't noticing any changes after all of this consider switching diaper brands and/or wipe brands.
Momma Notes:The Triple Paste is a pricey one, especially when you have to buy the giant tub for frequent rashes, but it also offers a GUARANTEE for satisfaction, so if it doesn't work you can get your money back. I'm all for products that guarantee they work! You can find it at most big box stores like Target and Walmart, some grocery stores, and Walgreens carry it.
Baby #2 EDITS
Baby D did not have nearly the butt troubles as his older brother, only a handful of nasty diaper rashes before he was potty trained. However, for those bouts we went back to our tried and true method and it worked wonders.
Our second choice for a cheaper all around cream to use for irritated skin prior to it breaking out in a rash is Bag Balm. Comes in that little green tin and lasts quite a while, about $5-$10, a great second choice.
