Red little bottom on baby

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

DD has had a red bottom for about a week now. I think that it started when my milk came in. Not saying that there is any correlation but I suppose that there could be. We use sposies and the redness is located around her little pooper and up a bit towards her girly bits. It's not the whole entire diaper area.

 

I thought that it might be the one cup of coffee that I drink per day but I'm not sure. She has been spitting up but I'm still trying to figure out if she just needs to burp more.

 

Any ideas?

Sounds like normal diaper rash to me. Pee + poo + sensitive skin = diaper rash.

A little diaper free time with aloe and sunshine should clear it up

That's what I was thinking and hoping for. I will get her some air time pronto.

 

Jess - can I use aloe straight from the plant? I've never heard about using aloe before!

I would also be on the lookout for any signs of yeast - we thought DD just had diaper rash and a few days later we discovered we both had yeast. Watch for bright red bumps instead of the all over redness. I sincerely hope it's just diaper rash!

Yes, you can use aloe straight from the plant or the stuff in a bottle if it's the pure kind. It is pretty much the only topical treatment I ever use on my babes.

Coconut oil!
