A Small Change You Can Make to Avoid Diaper Rash

When my first baby was born, to say I was overwhelmed was an understatement! There were so many things to learn and decide on…like whether or not to breastfeed (and then learning HOW to breastfeed), how to give her a bath, and what kind of detergent to use on her delicate little shirts and blankets, just to name a few.

The one thing I thought was a no-brainer was diaper changing…we just needed any old diapers and wipes from the store.

This one tip to avoid diaper rash will save your baby from needing diaper rash relief. It will cut down on irritation and you'll never need to learn how to get rid of diaper rash!

I had decided against cloth diapering early on in my pregnancy, because I didn’t want to go through the task of washing dirty diapers (changing them was bad enough!). I knew that disposable diapers were a good option, and because of how advanced technology had become, she would never have the bad diaper rash that plagued other generations of babies.

So you can imagine my surprise when, in the hospital, I was told to never use baby wipes on my baby. The nurse had come in to our room not long after the baby was born to help me learn to change a diaper and to bathe her, and one of the first things she said was, “Don’t ever use regular baby wipes on her skin.”

She wanted me to use a clean cloth or towel, which had been dampened with plain water, to wipe my baby’s skin while changing her diaper.

Of course, in my infinite wisdom as a mother of 2 hours experience, I immediately dismissed her suggestion, because in my mind, I wasn’t going to be able to go to the trouble of wetting a cloth each time when I could just use baby wipes from the store.

Little did I know that we would battle terrible diaper rash for years until she was almost potty trained. It seemed like as soon as I could get the diaper rash under control, it would be back again. It never dawned on me that the wipes could have been the cause of it, until I discovered a new type of baby wipes.

If you are concerned about introducing chemicals to your baby, you can rest easy with WaterWipes, because they do not contain any chemicals whatsoever…not even any preservatives.

Even though they contain no chemicals or detergents, WaterWipes are still just as effective at cleansing your baby’s delicate skin. They are strong and durable too, so that you don’t have to worry about a wipe tearing while you’re trying to get your baby cleaned up.

Available at many stores across the country, including my local GIANT store, one package of WaterWipes will keep for up to 15 months before it is opened. Once the package is opened, however, it is recommended that you use the pack within 1 month to avoid the wipes drying out. Of course, we never had a package of wipes that long, since we used so many of them each day ๐Ÿ˜‰

If I had listened to that wise nurse on that day so long ago, maybe we wouldn’t have had the kind of trouble with diaper rash that we did. WaterWipes weren’t available when my babies were in diapers…But I’m happy that they are available now, so that babies can possibly go through the diaper years never knowing the pain of diaper rash.

You can find stores that carry WaterWipes in your area by checking the store locator at the WaterWipes website. For more information on WaterWipes themselves, check out their Facebook or Twitter pages.

Does your baby struggle often with diaper rash?

  1. With my kids we had to use cloth diapers, they were both sensitive to some chemical that was in the disposable diapers. There was one brand of disposable diapers we could use that was filled with cotton that wouldn’t cause a reaction. But they were so expensive I went with cloth and only used them when we would be out.

    We also had to use a washcloth that was just damp with water to keep the rash away. I’m so glad we are past the diaper stage. It would have been nice to have a baby wipe that was gentle enough fro their skin.

  2. I don’t think Water Wipes were sold in stores when my kids were younger, but they seem like a fantastic product and one I would definitely buy. ๐Ÿ™‚
