My poor sweetpea (6 weeks tomorrow) has diaper rash. I thought I might escape a diaper rash-free 3 months with her...But he has come upon us. ANd I feel HORRIBLE about it. I changed her constantly. I didn't use any lotions on her bottom out of fear of sensitivity. However, when the diaper rash appeared 2 days ago, my sister said to use Aquafor and Butt butter. Any natural remedies out there?

What causes it besides just frequent wipes?

I welcome your feedback.:flipped

diaper rash can be caused by a number of things. Not being changed frequently and diapers that are too small are the biggest ones in my experience. Try going up a diaper size, it matters more than people realize. 
Penaten cream is the best for diaper rash in my experience. Not 100% natural, but it works magic. Also lots of open air time. It will be messy, but your baby's bottom will thank you for it

What kind of diapers you've used?

Either cloth diaper or normal diaper?

Using Poor quality of diapers can cause rashes to baby. I would suggest you to go with branded cloth diapers(Not normal diapers)
in the market to avoid rashes further.

Organic olive oil or organic coconut oil. It works best when there is no rash, meaning its best at preventing a rash. I'm usually lazy and don't rub it on every diaper change so we get an occasional rash. I use Burt's bees diaper cream. Rash usually clears by the next change or two.

I used cloth diapers with my 2 kids and they very rarely had rashes. When they did, I put on diaper rash cream (burts bees brand) and tried to let them air dry, diaper free for as much as possible, til the rash was better. Rashes seemed to be caused by us not changing the diaper often enough, or it getting too damp in there...cloth diapers are a lot more breathable than the plastic ones. I used GreenMountain.com diapers. By the way, we used wool diaper covers (also very breathable) that we either bought on Etsy or that were hand-crocheted by their grandma.
