Having a new baby in the house means running the gamut with all things diaper related… Especially since we’ve recently started Beau on solid foods. Full disclosure: As it turns out I’m even more uncomfortable writing about diapering issues than I am about talking about them, so this should be a treat for everyone.

I haven’t had too many issues with Beau (yet), but with Zoe there were times that her diaper rash got SO bad that we had to put her in a bath with baking soda and let her run naked for as long as possible. Dare I say it was more painful for me to try to treat her than it was for her to endure such a horrid circumstance. I felt absolutely awful… As though it was through some fault of my own that she was in that situation at all.
After a few serious episodes, I finally got smart and started using a strong ointment (A&D Zinc Oxide) to treat-which it did quickly, and one (A&D Original) to prevent as well. I’m not sure what the triggers were for her rashes-too much fruit or an antibiotic irritating her system, but I was definitely relieved when she cleared up fairly quickly. Neither of the ointments are overly pungent in smell, and they are both substantial enough (thick) that they will still work through the obvious variables, yet they also wash off without leaving any kind of gunky residue. It’s nice to know there’s something that will surely fix a very uncomfortable situation-which makes it worth it’s weight in gold in my book.
