Bonnie babies are a sight to watch with their burpings, toothless smiles and moving their hands in the air. But what makes this sight go yuck is when they do pee and poopie. Which is why, diapers become the most important asset while bringing up babies in order to avoid the stink and keeping their bumps covered and protected.
Constant diaper changing makes toddlers prone to developing nappy rash. Not only it gets painful, it becomes a perfect place for growth of germs in the baby bump area. Poor washing of diapers, skin allergies and humid weather all contribute to development of rash in the nappy area.
Why give the little souls harsh medication for diaper rash when the poor little souls can be made more happy and peaceful with time-tested home remedies. Here are some tips to fight diaper rash and keep their skin protected:
Breast Milk: This best form of food, nutrition and immunity for your new born can become the saving grace when it comes to wiping away diaper rash. Just apply few drops of your breast milk to your baby’s diaper rash and allow it to dry before you make your baby wear a fresh diaper.
Yogurt: Get some sugar-free organic yogurt and apply a thick layer to the diaper rash area on the baby skin. Wipe it each time you are changing the diaper and reapply the yogurt mixture.
Shea Butter: Shea Butter is known to have anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties that combat diaper rash. First wash the baby’s bottom with mild soap and lukewarm water and let it dry. Now take some shea butter and rub it gently on to the baby’s affected and irritated nappy area. Leave it on for a few minutes and then change the diaper to a fresh new one.
Organic Coconut Oil: If you thought coconut oil is reserved for the ladies when it comes to hair and skin massage, think again. Massage a few drops of this oil on your baby’s bumps to shoo away the diaper rashes and you will be happily relieved.
Oatmeal: Oatmeal scores high on skin nourishment and moisture. Put some oatmeal in a blender and start the blending till the time it gets reduced into a powder. Now transfer the powder in a water tub till you get the silky feel. Put your child in the water bath and watch the oat residue nourish your baby’s bumps.
French Green Clay: French Green Clay is known for its yeast fighting properties owing to its mineral base. Just sprinkle some French Green Clay over the affected baby bottoms and watch the skin healing happening quickly.
Now wish off the fears of diaper rash and let your toddler get on the trip of soft, glowing and healthy baby bottoms.
