How Can I Prevent Diaper Rash?

How to Prevent Diaper Rash

You may find comfort in knowing that diaper rash is very common. Even the most vigilant parents may still face diaper rash no matter how hard they try to prevent it. But, there are a few ways to help prevent diaper rash from cropping up:

  1. Keep it dry. Diaper rash comes around when skin gets too much moisture for too long. So, the best defense is a good offense.
  2. Change diapers often. And make sure they’re absorbent enough to do a good job.
  3. Air it out. When changing your baby’s diaper, take a few extra moments to be sure baby’s skin is clean and dry before putting on a new diaper.
  4. Use a treatment like Dr. Smith’s® Diaper Rash Ointment every day for preventative purposes. Even if you don’t see any signs of diaper rash, applying a barrier like this can help protect baby’s skin and keep moisture out.
