4 Tips to Soothe Babies With Diaper Rash
Trying to keep a baby with diaper rash calm during diaper changes can take some serious work. And who can blame a kid for being cranky when she’s in so much pain? Sadly, once the rash occurs, it takes some time to heal.
Thankfully, you can help make an unpleasant time more bearable for your little one. Here are our 4 Tips to soothe your Baby when she has a Diaper Rash:
- A good distraction can work wonders for a child in pain. Grab her most mesmerizing toy – you know, the one you’ve been tempted to remove the batteries from – and fire up the lights and sound effects. Make funny faces. Talk in silly voices. Channel your inner clown to make a painful diaper change go by quickly.
- Speak with a relaxed and calm voice, giving your baby a play-by-play of what you are doing as you change her diaper. The first impression your baby had of you was through your voice. Your voice has been the thing soothing your baby from the very beginning, and you can use that to your advantage when your little one needs some extra comfort. The words you choose aren’t what’s important – it’s about showing your baby that you are calm, and everything will be all right.
- Turn on some relaxing music as music can be a soothing distraction as well. The sounds and rhythms may capture their attention and help them relax.
- Apply Aquaphor Baby Diaper Rash Cream to soothe the irritated skin and provide a protective layer to help prevent further chafing and discomfort.
