Most of you know little Monroe has been teething like crazy! I pretty much loath teething, knowing she’s in pain, the drool every where, and the runny diapers! I’m not sure about your babies but every time my kids have teethed they get the runs. I remember asking my doctor about it and he just explained that there is a lot more saliva when the kids teeth and it can cause them to have messy diapers. With my babies having such sensitive skin this can me hard on their bums. I am no expert at all but I am figuring out what works for us and a couple tricks I’ve learned to keep that pesky diaper rash at bay! I will list my easy tips below. Johnson

I have really been enjoying the Desitin Multi-Purpose OintmentI like it for a couple reasons but most of all because the minute I can see her little bum is getting irritated or is about to get irritated I put some on. It’s that “peace of mind” for us mommas. It is petrolatum enriched with vitamins A&D so it creates a protective barrier that starts to sooth the skin. I use this product the most! During every diaper change I will put some on to help prevent any rash from occurring. I have yet to use Desitin maximum strength original paste  or Destine rapid relief diaper rash cream but I have some close friends that swear by them! I always have them on hand because I’m that momma who is like a stocked store just incase something might occur I have to be prepared!  Desitin maximum strength original paste is contains the maximum level of zinc oxide, immediately forming a protective barrier to help heal and soothe diaper rash discomfort. Destine rapid relief diaper rash cream forms a protective layer on your baby’s skin to soothe and relieve diaper rash discomfort, providing relief from the very first use. It is gentle enough to use after each diaper rash. 

I truly feel lucky that I haven’t had to deal with crazy diaper rash but more so for the babies. I HATE to see them in pain so I strictly follow these couple tips to help prevent it in the first place.


  1. Change diaper frequently
  2. If it is just urine use a damp wash clothe with just water and gently pat to clean – the wipes & wiping motion can often cause more irritation (many doctors say this too)
  3. Let the area fully dry before apply any product
  4. Focus on their diet when rashes occur. I will start to add bananas when i notice Monroe has been pooping a lot and if it’s runny.
  5. If you have time let your little one be without any diaper for a little bit. Sometimes I will put Monroe on a towel and let her roll around buck naked to air out. It helps! You can do this too after you apply product of choice.
