Nappy Rash Triggers –
From Teething to Weaning
Teething is one of the reasons as to why your baby might suffer from a nasty nappy rash. A bad nappy rash can cause extreme pain, and with their teeth coming through, it can also cause other reactions such as awful nappy contents.
When a baby's bottom comes into contact with wee and poo, their skin becomes sore, and a nappy rash can develop. So, although it’s technically not the teething itself causing the rash, that nasty runny poo will. For some babies, their teeth can appear without their parents even noticing, but others seem to struggle for months with the pain! It seems a bit unfair when this translates into sore bums too. Fortunately, an ointment for nappy rash can help.
1. SENSITIVE SKIN
Because babies’ skin is a lot thinner than adults, it’s not surprising that it can react so easily. Anything that touches their skin can be a potential irritant, from wet wipes to nappies.
It doesn’t matter whether you use only disposable nappies and wipes occasionally or all the time, any can pose a threat. Do try different brands until you find the one that works for your baby, and don’t forget cloth nappies too, they really aren’t scary at all!
