BEAT THE BURN

Your baby’s skin is extremely sensitive. Plus, it’s moist in the nappy, which contains your little one’s wee and poo and all kinds of chemicals that can irritate her skin. The chafing of the nappy itself can also become irritating. No wonder this area is prone to skin problems from time to time.

PREVENTION

• Change nappies regularly, especially after she’s had a dirty one.

• Wipe her skin properly to remove all residue. Clean water is fine, or use fragrance- and alcohol-free wipes. Dry the area well before putting on a clean nappy.

• Make sure the nappy fits snugly and comfortably, so it doesn’t gape, pinch or chafe.
