My sweet baby has a diaper rash! It is seriously only the second time he has had one in his entire life. Our AC was broken for a few days and I think the humidity attributed to it not healing. I did my usual coat of Butt Paste with each necessary diaper change, and let him run around naked when possible. But this diaper rash was just not budging. It got to a point where Lucas was asking for Butt Paste . Poor guy, I felt so bad!
I bought some Baking Soda for his bath andit helped so much. He is now pretty much healed and should be 100% tomorrow. The baking soda helps balance your PH balance and drys out your baby’s rash helping to heal it.
