Sally says: One more thing on rashes...

My daughter had a rash all the time when she was in disposable diapers.

I would let her sit in a tub of nice warm plain water between every change, and that helped too.

As well as the airing out (which most of you are probably already doing!!)

Carla adds: Pop him in an Aveno bath between removing and replacing the diaper.

It seems excess stomach acid was the culprit, and he needed to have it both removed and soothed each diaper change.

Also her doctor recommended mixing creamy Desitin with Maalox or Mylanta (original), and using it as an acid neutralizer when she had to be out and about, and couldn't do the bath each time.

Seemed to help.

Thanks to Sally and Carla for this Frugal Baby Tip!
