heat rash

ok I'm pretty sure this is heat rash cause it's on her belly too, but it's all over her diaper area

any ideas to get rid of it??

I have her in just a prefold today no cover (yikes what a mess!!....she is breastfeed and pood)

and seriously this girl pees a lot I think she's starting to be a heavy wetter also


THANKS!!

Re: heat rash

I think that's all you can really do. Keep her cool. The pf w/ no cover is a good idea. Ethan gets it in the summer and it takes about 3 days to go away, maybe more. My friend's friend (nurse) said that to keep them cool and just in a diaper at home. that's about it! do you use any fitteds? that might help w/ poo leakage.

Re: heat rash

This is the EXACT reason I invested in a dozen motherease sandys. They are amazing for poo containment, with a doubler are pretty absorbant, but they are cheap and perfect for going coverless at home.

During the summer DD HAS to be in something breathable or she gets an AWFUL rash too. We do fitteds and wool while out.

no we only have BG's and prefolds we've never even tried fitteds before

Re: heat rash

I bought a few Dream-Eze fitteds in the seconds sale specifically for going coverless during the summer. Love them! They really contain the poo. I haven't tried going coverless with a prefold yet. The only other thing you could try is more naked time. HTH.
