During the time I was battling chronic rashes, I did quite a bit of research on how to minimize diaper rashes in a child that is prone to them! The first piece of advice was "have lots of air time" aka .... naked bum with no dipe! (Just follow them around with carpet cleaner! HA!) The second piece of advice was to make sure their bum was completely dry before putting on the new diaper! During quick diaper changes, this step can be overlooked b/c you take off their wet diaper, use a baby wipe, then immediately put on the new diaper! Their precious skin is still moist/damp! The moisture increases the risk of another rash!!
I had the awesome chance to review a product that can help you follow through with this step, Bummas!
|The Tropical Color Pack|
-To dry the babies bottom after the use of a regular wipe
-To block "surprise squirts" if you have a little boy
-Add a bit of water and they can replace a regular wipe
-Also make great wash clothes in the bathtub!
Bummas are Eco-friendly, frugal and best of all amazing for your babies bottom! They can eliminate many diaper rashes!!
I really enjoyed my pack and have had a great time using cloth wipes with my cloth dipes!! It is a great addition to my stash! I have actually considered purchasing some of these for my friends that are PG right now!
I know it sounds crazy and gross, but what a way to save $$ and the earth!! (And Sophia's precious bum!) Cloth wipes are a lot easier than they sound ... also, if you use a homemade wipe solution, you are sure to protect their bum!
