How to protect your baby against nappy rash

Step 1: Clean baby’s skin

Firstly, make sure you change wet or soiled nappies straight away. Gently but thoroughly clean baby’s skin with mild and gentle wipes, or if you prefer, cotton wool and water.

 

Step 2: Allow nappy area to dry

After you’ve finished cleaning baby’s bottom, pat it dry, or allow your baby to go nappy-free for a little while to air-dry.

 

Step 3: Apply nappy cream

When baby’s bottom is dry, apply a barrier nappy cream, to help protect your baby’s skin from contact with urine and faeces. It can also help protect against friction from the nappy on their delicate skin.
