3 Tips for Preventing Diaper Rashes

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Balmex Diaper Rash Cream. All opinions are 100% mine.


When Ava was a couple of months old, she was getting diaper rash after diaper rash after diaper rash. And just when it would start to go away, it would just come right back with full force! I’d change her diapers within seconds of her soiling her diaper and nothing seemed to help. 

I did some research on it and of course turned to all of you and found some of the best tips for preventing (and treating) diaper rashes and now that I follow these four things with Franky, he’s yet to get one. Let’s hope I didn’t speak too soon!

Here they are… 3 tips for preventing diaper rashes.

1. Balmex Diaper Rash Cream

You’re probably thinking, “Well duh, diaper rash cream is going to help with diaper rash” but I’m not just talking about the best way to get rid of a diaper rash. I’m talking about preventing diaper rash and Balmex not only treats it but prevents it from even starting. 

Recommended by pediatricians and trusted by parents for 65 years, Balmex contains contains zinc oxide, Vitamins B5 and E, Evening Primrose and using it helps prevent diaper rash from forming before it even happens by neutralizing digestive enzymes that are known to irritate your baby’s skin. 

So yes, put the cream on with each diaper change and prevent those flare ups on that precious baby bum!

2. Keep it Dry

This may sound a little silly but after I wipe, I let Franky’s little bum (and thigh rolls) get some fresh air. Sometimes I even blow some air on him to ensure he’s fully dry before putting that diaper back on. 

3. Water Wipes

There are lots of brands out there that make water-based wipes and I swear, switching over to these types of wipes made a world of a difference with Ava. And so with Franky, we started out that way from Day 1 and we’re never going back. 

In the coming months, Franky will be introduced to solids and the likelihood of diaper rashes will increase. So I, personally, am doing everything I can to prevent it before it even starts.
