Re: My Baby Has Bed Sores- HELP

At work we reposition everyone who cannot do it themselves every 1-2 hours. Also keeping her in a dry diaper will help the sores heal. Maybe you should seek the advice and care from a home visiting nurse. Don't put cream on it, but you can try a duoderm. It is a thin layer that will form and stick to the skin to help healing and protect the skin. But I would also be contacting a wound care nurse for an assessment that it doesn't need more care and to prevent infection
you read my mind. this is right on
