For the seasoned mommy, this may seem a bit silly but as a first time mom I had no clue whatsoever about diaper rashes. And apparently, Ava's got some sensitive skin because within a week of being born she already had diaper rash. And it was BAD. Okay, I have nothing to compare it to but it seemed bad to me.

I know that we needed cream to get rid of it (we used Desitin) but what would prevent her from getting a rash in the future? We would change her diaper less than a minute after she relieved herself and still, the rash would come back.

And then I finally discovered that some wipes are just water. Who knew? Admittedly, the idea of wiping her with only water grossed me out. And then I realized that adults wipe with less than that so it wasn't gross at all!

We tried Huggies Natural Care wipes and they worked like a charm. Yes, she's gotten a slight red bottom here and there but nothing even close to a diaper rash since we switched. Voila!
