When nappy rash strikes it leaves your baby sore and stressed, and whilst easily treated, it's no picnic in the park whilst the symptoms are dissipating. A baby's peachy bum is often covered with a sore rash and if left untreated, this can quickly lead to an infection. As with many things in life, prevention is easier than the cure and will leave your baby happier and content. Here are a few steps to try to avoid nappy rash.

1) Change your baby's nappy often. Nappy rash is typically an issue associated with a baby's bum getting sore after too much contact with the typical contents of a nappy. As babies wee and poo with ridiculous frequency, clean nappies throughout the day are a must, to avoid the skin getting irritated. Sometimes nappy rash can just be a case of bad luck too, perhaps following teething, an upset stomach or from certain allergic reactions.

2) When you change your baby's nappy, make sure you clean their bottom ideally with a fragrance and alcohol free wipes to avoid further irritation. Mild soap and water can also work well.

3) Consider using a preventative cream such as GAIA's Skin Soothing Lotion which you can apply to a baby's bottom after every nappy cream.

Organic and pure; perfect for little bottoms


This cream was formulated for sensitive skins and provides an effective barrier to protect your baby's bottom when they have a nappy on. Not only that but it smells absolutely divine, and makes a handy addition to your nappy bag with it's other useful purposes such as mozzie bites, sore lips, as a moisturiser and also as an all over barrier cream that guarantees not to leave a thick white residue everywhere.

Top Tip: Pop this skin soothing lotion into the fridge, and when your little one has extremely sore skin, they'll love the kind relief that this cream brings when cooler.

4) In cases of painful nappy rash, a great treatment is simply to allow nappy free time. Try to increase the amount of time your baby is without their nappy on, to allow for greater healing time. Yes, they'll be accidents, and it's worth having a few towels to hand, but the fresh air will work wonders.

5) Ensure that you are using a high absorbency nappy. If you've been using cheaper nappies to save money, you might want to switch up to a better absorbency at night times when a baby typically spends a longer period of time in a wet nappy.
