5 Common Mistakes Parents Make When Dealing with Baby Diaper Rashes
Dealing with baby diaper rashes can be challenging for parents, but avoiding certain common mistakes can help ensure your baby's comfort and quick recovery.
- Using Tight-Fitting Diapers: Diapers that are too tight can create friction and trap moisture against your baby's skin, making diaper rash more likely.
- Not Changing Diapers every day: change the diaper every day because keeping a wet or soiled diaper on for too long can contribute to diaper rashes. Change the baby's diaper promptly whenever it becomes wet or soiled.
- Using fragranced: baby wipes containing alcohol or other harsh chemicals can exacerbate diaper rashes and cause further irritation. Parents can use a soft cloth and warm water to clean their baby's diaper area during a rash.
- Overlooking Proper Drying: After cleaning your baby's diaper area, make sure it's thoroughly dry before putting on a new diaper.
- Not Having a Fixed Place for Changing Diapers: One common mistake that many of us make is not having a designated place to carry out the changing process.
