My dd has a diaper rash, but looks more like a burn...it's not on her but at all, but beet red on her girly parts. She is a very very heavy wetter at night, my mom said it looks like she's got a urine burn so......
what could cause this? She's changed frequently, no new soaps etc..
For nighttime should I just have her sleep nakey bare, and if so...How? she's a very very heavy wetter. Maybe just put a bunch of CD's down covering anywhere she may wonder to on the bed
thanks so much!!
Mommy to my amazing 6 yr old dd, we , and 27 weeks and have been sick the whole time so far, grrrrr!!!!!!!
1. Changing her diaper a couple of times during the night, which is totally not practical, so I don't do it.
2. Using a barrier cream preemptively EVERY NIGHT. I find that Vaseline or Aquaphor work the best as barriers. They're inexpensive and clean up easily, too, unlike thicker titanium dioxide-type diaper creams.
3. If I don't use a barrier cream, using a microfleece doubler/liner. This actually works really well, although I tend to alternate nights between barrier cream and microfleece so that her skin doesn't get too dried out.
Also... hate to say it, but if it looks like she's getting a bit red (for whatever reason... she reacts to poop sitting for more than a couple of minutes - it shouldn't of course, but at daycare it can happen, for example) then I tend to put her in a sposie. I don't like it, but it does work.
Also - when her rash is really bad, I go with a mild hydrocortisone cream rather than a zinc cream to clear her up. It seems to work best on her. Sparingly... but it works.

Don't know if that is the case for you, but perhaps that train of thought will help lead you to a solution.
