Re: Newborn diaper rash...

All 3 of my kids had newborn rash. Most of my friend's kiddos had newborn rash. I think it is normal, though annoying.

We used Triple Paste and it cleared up super fast. A and D also works great (though not quite as fast), but it is not cloth diaper safe. At that point, I didn't care. Baby's skin was more important than cloth diapers to me, and we switched to sposies with ointment...rash gone in about 2 days.

There is also a great prescription called Riley Butt Cream that is amazing. However, it is expensive and has to be compounded. It is the one and only thing Medicaid has ever denied for my special needs son. They will pay $5,000 a month for his Peptamin Jr no question, but denied the $80 for the Butt Cream. He had C diff, and he was raw. DCS picked up the script cost for us.
