I know of many moms who do not use nappy rash creams or they use nappy rash creams only when the baby gets a rash.
But from the begining I have been very aware of the nappy rash issues and made up my mind to work towards protecting my baby from these horrible rashes.
I change diapers every 3 hours if its wet or no. And 2 times a day I apply a nappy rash cream to prevent the baby from developing a rash. A rash cream is a must even if your baby does not have a rash.
Diapers abosrb all the moisture in your baby’s skin so be sure to use a diaper rash cream. Though Himalaya diaper rash cream is very good for daily use, I found a nice nappy rash cream made by curatiohealthcare.
Im sure your surprised how people here are big fans of curatio products, because its so effective.
The B4 Nappi cream is a chalky thick cream which has to be applied before nappy changes. I use it twice mornings after bath and once in the evening after diaper change.
The cream sticks to the skin hence it does not wash off easily or even with wet wipes. So very little goes a long way.
I find this effective in protecting my baby, but I dont have experience if this cures rashes fast and effectively.
Update: Though this product was effective it tanned my babys nappy area, it darkens the skin.
