If you have an infant right now that is starting solid foods, you know how rashes (on the face and in the diaper area) can begin to occur. I want to protect my little one by treating any future rashes- and that’s why I compiled all of my diapering essentials in one place!
By having all of my “rash guards” in one spot, I never miss keeping him dry and clean. Let’s start with the absolute essential: diaper cream. Balmex Complete Protection Diaper Rash Cream (which is recommended by pediatricians) contains zinc oxide, the #1 doctor recommended ingredient for fighting diaper rash. As a parent to a child who has suffered from severe diaper rash, I can attest that it helped her recover very fast when applied as directed.
Why trust Balmex? Balmex Complete Protection Diaper Rash Cream contains Vitamins B5 and E, plus a natural ingredient, Evening Primrose, which is shown to help neutralize digestive enzymes that can irritate baby’s skin. It’s very important that you prevent enzymes from aggravating any existing rash further. Balmex helps soothe already irritated skin, and that’s why I trust it for my baby’s diaper rash.
The next item in my basket is clean bibs. With the constant drooling and new foods that my baby is eating, I want to make sure that his face stays dry. I try to replace his bib multiple times a day- preferably after he eats anything- so that his face doesn’t get irritated.
If his skin is dry or chapped, I dab on some Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment. It contains 7 healing moisturizers plus Vitamin A and D to protect and soothe. This ointment works great to seal out wetness and prevent skin chafing.
A proper diaper basket should always be stocked with fresh diapers and wipes. For a baby that is being introduced to solids, you can probably expect a few more diapers a day, as his system gets used to these new foods.
Applying Balmex Complete Protection Diaper Rash Cream with every diaper change will help prevent chafing and provide a wetness barrier against his skin and the soiled diaper. The cream starts working after one application, which is a win-win for both parent and infant.
