Every mother knows how important diaper rash cream is for preventing dry and chapped skin from developing on her baby's bottom. But surprisingly, many baby diaper creams sold in stores contain alcohol as one of their primary ingredients, and this can actually promote diaper rash.
At Babo Botanicals, we make our diaper rash cream only from the finest ingredients so your baby's skin gets all of the moisturizing and anti-inflammatory protection he or she needs. With our botanical Nutri-Soothe™ Blend, our pure diaper rash cream has active ingredients designed by nature to keep your baby calm, comfortable, and rash-free. Our diaper cream creates a soothing barrier between the diaper and your baby's bottom for optimal protection and it's compatible with cloth diapers too.

Our Oatmilk Calendula Soothing Diaper Rash Cream is so effective that it provides exceptional treatment for any and all dry-skin conditions, including eczema. This means that anyone in the home can benefit from our natural blend of anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing extracts.

Plus, our Oatmilk Calendula cream contains no synthetic fragrances or dyes, no nut oils, no paraben or phthalate, and no man-made chemicals, so it is naturally allergy-free and safe for those with even the most sensitive skin.

Almost every baby will get diaper rash at least once during the first 3 years of life, with the majority of these babies 9-12 months old. This is the time when the baby is still sitting most of the time and is also eating solid foods, which may change the acidity of the bowel movements. Diaper rashes are generally harmless but become very painful and can lead to harmful sores if not addressed.
What Causes Diaper Rashes:
- Friction: Most diaper rash is caused by friction that develops when sensitive baby skin is rubbed by wet diapers. This results in a red, shiny rash on exposed areas.
- Irritation: The skin under the diaper gets red from irritants such as feces, urine, or cleaning agents. Irritation can be caused by the diaper or by the acid in urine and bowel movements. This rash appears red in the area where the diaper has rubbed and is normally not seen in the folds of the skin.
- Candidal infection: The rash of a candidal infection, also known as fungal or yeast infection, usually has a bright, beefy red appearance and is very common after the use of antibiotics. Candida is a fungal microorganism that is typically found in warm, moist places.
- Allergic reaction: The rash may be a reaction to diaper wipes, diapers, laundry detergent, soap, lotion, or the elastic in plastic pants. Even reactions to solid foods or an episode of diarrhea or other medication can cause a diaper rash
- Heat: This is part of frictions.
How To Treat Diaper Rash
- Put a natural layer of zinc-oxide based protective cream which is the most effective barrier
- Avoid using products with mineral or petrolatum
- Change your baby's diaper very often and as soon as possible after he or she urinates or has a bowel movement.
- Clean the area as often as you can with a sulfate free product
- Leave skin to air diaper-free as often as possible.
- Talk to your doctor if your baby's diaper rash begins oozing or does not get better after 3 days.
