What it is: A rash around your baby’s bottom. It is very common, so don’t panic.
What causes it: Largely caused by moisture, little air and irritants from soaps, wipes and nappies.
What to do: Keep nappies clean and dry, changing them regularly. Use a fragrance-free nappy rash cream to prevent the issue occurring. If a rash does appear, give your baby 10 minutes of bare bottom time to let the skin dry out before putting on nappy barrier cream, and then a new dry nappy. Also use a fragrance-free wash at bath time to avoid any further irritation.
