Diaper Rash Cream

Diaper rash is a nasty and very common infection that causes your baby's skin to become sore, red, scaly, and tender. It usually occurs in infants and children who are 2 years old and below.

The best way to prevent diaper rash is by using diaper rash cream. It contains soothing and healing ingredients. It also acts as a “barrier” between your baby’s very sensitive skin and the diaper.

Diaper rash cream will help soothe, heal and prevent diaper rash.

I have tried 3 kinds of Diaper rash cream, Drapolene, NoRash, and Baby Bottom's Cream. Drapolene is very effective specially if your baby is already suffering from diaper rash, however this cream is the most expensive among the three. NoRash and Baby Bottom's Cream are more of a prevention cream.

Our baby had a diaper rash for a few weeks his pedia recommends Drapolene and it worked after 4 to 5 days the rash cleared up.

Babies love to be the cuddled and it also keeps them warm. Swaddling makes the baby feel snug, comfortable, warm, secure and cozy. It helps them sleep longer. It also calm and soothe babies who are fussy or crying.

Newborn babies don't have the ability to regulate their body temperature like an adult, to keep them warm babies needs to be swaddled. However, check the baby from time to time to make sure that the baby is not too hot. It also helps the baby to sleep longer since it prevents them from startling or sudden movements that wakes them up in the middle of the sleep.

Swaddling can also help a baby focus on breastfeeding, it keeps their arms and legs out of the way. It also prevents a newborn baby from scratching themselves with their nails.

Another benefit of Swaddle Blanket is that unlike loose blankets in the crib that can cover your baby's face and interfere the baby's breathing.

I really love this product since it worked out so perfectly. It has an adjustable wrap with fastener strip for easy and secure swaddling. It also washes very well and holds up to repeated use.
