As I was doing a quick wet rag wash on Julia I noticed that her skin is raw and oozing a little in the leg creases that are closest to her abdomen. I only noticed when I pulled her chubby rolls apart to clean in there. Anyone else have this problem? What is the cause and how do I prevent it from happening again? We do lots of open air time during the day. Thanks!
Raw skin in leg creases! Help!
We had the exact same problem with our wonderfully fat EBF baby. We used cornstarch, which worked really well. At the beginning, when it was really bad, I would dry the skin well after his bath with a hair drier (this may've been overkill, but it made me feel better & he seemed to like the warm air). Important to watch neck creases/folds for accumulated spit-up and to gentle wash it out with a rag and warm water. Good luck!
