Taking Care Of Sensitive Areas Of Your Baby's Body
You need to take extra care of the sensitive skin around your baby’s diaper area. Diapered skin is often wet, exposed to a lot of friction from rubbing, and is in frequent contact with urine and stools. All this can irritate a baby’s skin. Change your baby’s diaper often. Cleanse the area gently with disposable wipes that are alcohol and fragrance-free, or use a damp washcloth. Let your baby air dry naturally when possible, and use a cream or petroleum jelly before putting on a new diaper.
