What you really need to know about diaper rash…

As mums, our main priorities are keeping our babies clean, safe and healthy.

Diaper rash is a common topic amongst all mums with little ones and trying to combat the same stubborn problem.

What is diaper rash?

Diaper rash grows in warm and moist places on your baby’s bottom and appears in patches of inflamed red skin. A baby’s skin is extra sensitive and can overreact to exposure to certain environmental factors and chemicals. Naturally, some babies have more sensitive skin than others and tolerate products differently.

Common causes of nappy rash:

  1. Diaper is not changed frequently enough
  2. Skin sensitivity to harmful chemicals found in unnatural diapers
  3. Change in diet/introduction to new foods

Steps to limit the likelihood of nappy rash:

  1. Changing your baby’s diaper more frequently
  2. Using natural products free from harsh chemicals

Many commercial disposable diapers contain harsh chemicals which can have negative effects on your baby’s skin and overall health. Due to the sensitivity of a baby’s skin, it’s important to know exactly what’s in the products you’re using and what to steer clear from when shopping.

Harsh chemicals commonly used in disposable diapers:

  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Perfumes, Fragrances and dyes
  • Adhesive chemicals
  • Chlorine
  • Latex
  • Phthalates
  • Parabens
  • Silicone
  • Triclosan
  • Sulfates
  • Lead

Using products that contain these harsh chemicals aren’t only bad for your baby’s bottom but also have negative environmental impacts.
