Health Tip: Prevent Diaper Rash

By on December 14, 2009

Diaper rash is an outbreak of a sore rash beneath a baby’s diaper. Although quite common, parents can take steps to protect those sensitive bottoms.

The Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions:

  • Don’t let baby linger in a wet or dirty diaper.
  • Give baby’s bottom a good cleaning between diaper changes.
  • Make sure baby’s skin is clean and completely dry before putting on a new diaper.
  • Don’t rub baby’s bottom to dry it. Using a soft cloth, pat it gently.
  • Make sure baby’s diaper isn’t too tight.
