Best Deal in GTA for 100 Premium Baby Diapers
You start to change your baby’s diaper, and there it is a patchwork of bright red skin on your baby’s bottom. Don’t panic. What you’re seeing is most likely diaper rash, a common form of inflamed skin (dermatitis).
Most infants develop a diaper rash at some time or another; some even arrive home from the hospital with a slight rash. Diaper rash may be more common after solid foods are added to your baby’s diet or when your baby is taking antibiotics. Other factors that can lead to diaper rash include continuously wet or infrequently changed diapers, diarrhea and the use of plastic pants to cover a diaper. Diaper rashes can occur intermittently, anytime while your child wears diapers, but they’re more common in babies during their first 15 months, especially between 8 and 10 months of age.
Diaper rash can alarm parents and annoy babies, but fortunately most cases disappear after a few days with simple home treatments.
Diaper rash is characterized by red, puffy and perhaps slightly warmer skin in the diaper region � buttocks, thighs and genitals. You may notice your baby seems more uncomfortable than usual, especially during diaper changes. A baby with a diaper rash often fusses or cries when the diaper area is washed or touched.
Diaper rash can be traced to a number of causes, including:
A few simple strategies can help decrease the likelihood of diaper rash developing on your baby’s skin:
Many parents worry about what kind of diapers to use. When it comes to preventing diaper rash, there’s no compelling evidence that cloth diapers are better than disposable diapers or vice versa, though disposables may keep baby’s skin slightly drier. Since there’s no one best diaper use whatever works best for you and your baby. If one brand of disposable diaper irritates your baby’s skin, try another.
Whether you use cloth diapers, disposables or both kinds, always change your baby as soon as possible after he or she soils the diaper to keep the bottom as clean and dry as possible.
There are many misconceptions about a baby’s bottom:
Having a diaper rash is a normal part of being a baby. There are many ways you can limit the amount of rash, but from time to time it will flare up again.
Start with ultra sensitive skin, add the chemicals and moisture of urine and stools, cover the area with a diaper that rubs back and forth, and you have diaper rash. This damaged skin is susceptible to the invasion of bacteria and yeast, which can make the rash worse.
Some babies only experience it once in a while, whereas others experience it time and again. No one knows the reason for these differences in the skin, but some babies just seem more sensitive than others.
The best way to treat an ordinary diaper rash, or diaper rash caused by a fungal infection, is to let it get some air. It is a good idea to leave the baby’s nappy off for about an hour a few times a day.
It also helps to change the baby’s nappy often. When the rash is at its worst, it may be necessary to change the nappy up to 12 times a day. Dry the baby’s bottom carefully after each change.
It is important to wash the baby’s bottom every time you change the nappy. If your baby has only wet their nappy, use warm water. If the baby has dirtied their nappy, use a little soap, but remember to always rinse in warm water to make sure there is no soap left on the baby’s skin.
Fixed faeces can be removed by using ordinary cooking oil on a wad of cotton wool. Do not use baby wipes, as they can sting and dry the skin out and the chemicals in them can make the rash worse.
If your baby has diaper rash or very sensitive skin it is a good idea to protect it with a thick barrier cream after every wash. To protect the red skin, you can use a zinc paste or barrier cream, which is available at the chemist: zinc forms a protective surface over the skin. Weak hydrocortisone creams (eg Dermacort) can be used for severe cases, but these should not be used without consulting your doctor first.
If using cloth nappies, try changing to disposable nappies as they absorb more fluid from the baby’s skin.
Try dressing the baby in woolen underwear on top of the nappy instead of plastic pants.
If using disposable nappies, try switching to cloth nappies. Sometimes changing to another type of nappy will help.
If the diaper rash does not get better in a few days, or gets worse, talk to your doctor or health visitor. If the baby’s skin turns even more red, warm and swollen, and the baby gets a temperature, you should also contact a doctor immediately as the diaper rash may be caused by a bacterial infection that requires medical treatment.
How to tell the differences between diaper rashes
The cause of diaper rash is the skin being kept wet along with the chemical irritation of ammonia, produced by stale urine. This has the effect of breaking down the protective barrier normally formed by the skin, causing redness and rawness (inflammation) and allowing germs of various types to attack.
The most common infection to complicate the ammonia-like irritation is thrush (candida). In this event, the rash often has clusters or red spots around the margins of the main red area. Other germs (bacteria) can also infect the area.
It follows that the longer wet or soiled nappies are left in contact with the baby’s skin, the more likely diaper rash is to develop. Some babies’ skin is, however, much more sensitive than others. The problem is probably worse with old fashioned terry towelling nappies, especially if worn with waterproof pants. Modern disposable nappies, which are better at keeping the fluid away from the skin, are better in some respects.
If your baby does not have a problem with diaper rash, then you don’t need to be too strict with these preventative measures. However, if you are constantly battling rash, here are some helpful hints to minimize it:
No matter how diligent you are with the above measures, your baby will still have a rash from time to time. Here are some tips to treating those rough spots:
Diapers have breathable cover which lets air in for added drying. Inside layers are highly absorbent to keep babies comfortable and dry. Leak guards and elastic waistband help prevent leakage. The adjustable Velcro tape makes for a comfortable custom fit.

For successful cloth diapering it is essential to have a diaper absorbent enough to hold the amount of urine your baby puts out. In this regard not all babies are created equally. The key is to provide enough fabric to absorb baby’s output without creating too much bulk for comfort. This is where absorbent liners and doublers come in handy at night for most babies and anytime for “heavy-wetters.”
Allowing air to circulate inside the diaper keeps your baby’s bottom cooler. This is more comfortable and helps prevent the growth of undesirable bacteria which can cause diaper rash. Cotton diapers are breathable!
To keep clothing and bedding dry, a waterproof covering is necessary. Our All-in-One styles include the waterproof covering sewn into the diaper. Fitted and prefold diapers require a separate cover.
There are two basic types of covers.
Pull-on Coverpants: Waterproof pant-style covers that pull on over pinned or fitted diapers; commonly referred to as “pull-ons.”
Wrap-Covers: Wrap-style covers that can wrap around a prefold or fitted diaper and fasten at the waist with either hook-&-loop closures or snaps. These are commonly referred to as “wraps” or “covers.”
Liners can be very useful in messy clean-ups. There are two types generally available–washable or disposable. These are laid inside, and cover a large portion of the diaper, which means less rinsing of the actual diaper is needed.
Cloth diapering has changed in the past 30 years–MORE OPTIONS! No longer is there just one option of flat white diapers folded, pinned, then covered with plastic or rubber pants. With today’s options, you can get as basic or creative as your budget and imagination allow. Print fabrics and colors can make diapering a little more fun. If your choice is more traditional, we also offer white.
Cloth diapers are available in five basic types.
Flat–Square or rectangular pieces of fabric which must be custom folded and secured with diaper pins or clips.
Prefolds–Rectangular-shaped diapers which have multiple layers of absorbent material in the center. Many diaper services use this type of diaper; commonly referred to as “prefolds.” Prefolds can be secured with pins or clips, or wrap-style covers which hold the diapers in place secured by hook-&-loop (velcro-like) fasteners or snaps.
Contour–Hour-glass or T-shaped diapers fit compactly into wrap-covers. Sometimes referred to as “shaped diapers,” contour diapers usually have a center layer of absorbent material.
Fitted– “Baby shaped” diapers include a center layer of absorbent material, securely fasten at the waist, and have elastic at the legs. Fitted diapers are sometimes referred to as “velcro diapers” or “snap diapers,” depending on which type of fasteners are used.
All-in-Ones– “All-in-Ones” are diapers which contain the diaper fabric, an absorbent center layer, and waterproof covering all in one piece. They are much like disposables yet are washable and reusable. These fasten most commonly with hook-&-loop closures (sometimes snaps) and have elastic at the legs.
