Hi All!  This is more of a informational post rather than a question! And then of course, you all can add your opinions!

Our baby had THE WORST diaper rash...I felt so bad...her butt had open, bleeding sores ALL the time...it didn't matter what we used, changed, or didn't use...

The doctor basically told us she needed to be naked on her butt...

We invested in a box of puppy pee pads! It WORKED!!! I was floored! We let her lay on that for as long as she would and wouldn't you know it!? No mess and the sores healed.

Has anyone had this experience?

No, but I remember my mom telling me we had to go "bare booty" when we were little and had diaper rash. LOL! Never heard of the puppy pads though. I'll have to share that.

Oh, next time try Boudreaux Butt Paste if it's just a little red. My friend swears by it!

I've never heard of this treatment but I'm very glad she is better now! I know that was scary.

Wow, thanks for sharing your experience. A friend's son had a bad case, and he was bare for a while before it all dried up.

Oh wow! That is scary! My mom always told me bare bottom too, the babes love it! I’ve always used desitin in diaper rash instances. Honestly after wiping I put baby powder in the butt crack and it stays dry, no issues!

Emma posted this 28 August 2018

Thanks for the advice. I haven’t ran into that issue. Always used baby powder when changing the diaper.

LOL wow puppy pee pads .. hey whatever works.  When I read your post I immidiately thought of my friend because he gets puppy pee pad.  And I visualized a baby on a puppy pee pads.  LOL

Baby powder all the way! I live and swear by it lol Both my mom and sister have done it so I followed in their footsteps and it’s been a success. I’m glad because a lot of baby products are trial and error so it was nice not to have to purchase 20 different things before I found one that worked.

Ashley posted this 29 August 2018

Yes, Danielle!!! That was us! A million different things to figure it out! It's interesting to me to see that so many still use baby powder! I use it on myself in certain areas....I'm sweaty...lol...but I was hearing from so many how it's "soooo bad" for the baby to breathe in....it reminds me of the old stories we here of our parents....like...riding in the back of a pick up with no seat belt...hahahaha...somehow...they are all still alive! LOL All these babies who have endured baby powder....they are still alive! I never even tried baby powder on my baby because of this! Goodness.....and to think maybe that could have worked!

Yes, my son had a rash but we figured it out that is was from the laundry detergent I was using on his cloth diapers. As soon as we resolved that it all worked out but we would let him go naked. Even today at 3 he likes to run around naked!

I have never heard of that but suffered from the severe diaper rash. It is so sad for them when there isn't much to do. I learned that airing it out is the best. Though I just her down on a towel never would have thought of puppy pads. Makes sense though, they are soft, soak it up - genius! I never used baby powder because of all the horror stories I read. So many of those articles or books are full of scary and unnecessary things.

wow this is really neat! never heard of this before, but if my child ever gets a really bad rash, I might try this

 Baby powder sounds good to. The only time my son has a really bad diaper rash to where he need a prescribed cream was when he had diarrhea for a month. We switch to almond milk after he turned 1 and it didn't fit well in his stomach

I used pure cornstarch with my LO rash and if I had to put his diaper on I used desitin.

I have never heard of puppee pad. I wonder if we have it here in our area.

Brenda posted this 10 September 2018

Thanks for sharing! I haven't experienced it that bad, poor baby. The puppy pads sound like a great idea though, I will have to keep them in mind! I do know baby powder works great for a lot of things, but some baby skin just isn't good for it. Does anyone know if theres baby powder for sensitive skin?

Emilia posted this 12 September 2018

 I believe she is referring to the pads that puppies use to pee on.  They go on the floor for the puppies.  I believe in her case she would put it down for the baby to use it and at the same time the baby's butt is naked.  That's what I understand from it.

With my first child at 10 months she caught the bacteria salmonela and after being hospitilized and having diarreah for almost a week she had the worst rash. We would shower her and leave her butt naked for a while and apply a prescribe butt cream that zinc oxide and it worked wonders for her. it was a very difficult time for us.

Boudreaux Butt Paste and Desitin was mt freind LOL! Plus for those into ingredients, it has no Paraben, preservative and is phthalate-free.

Butt Paste is the BEST!

Kim posted this 22 October 2018

That's so great that it worked out! And I've heard others swear by that Boudreaux's butt paste before, I've seen it at Whole Foods. I will say that I hope she doesn't have to deal with any scarring. I unfortunately did and still have them - not exactly the reminder you want from childhood 😒 

RHONDA posted this 24 October 2018

I am going to keep puppy pads on hand!! that is a great idea. I swear by zinc oxide for any rash butt the puppy pads for naked butt time is a good idea!

Nicole posted this 13 November 2018

I have not heard of this , the best I have ever used for diaper rash is breast milk and if I didn't have that it was for sure always hands down the clear winner was BAG BALM, it is a game changer and I always put it on my daughter for every change no diaper rash issues at all. 

Kristine posted this 13 November 2018

Butt Paste is the best and I've got mine on hand.  Letting it air out also helps and then make sure your water temps at bathtime are soothing temps because that can hurt if they have the rash really bad. 

Claire posted this 13 November 2018

When the weather is warmer it's also great to let them be outside naked and get a teeny bit of sun on their bums.  Totally helps clear things up.

Gen posted this 13 November 2018

Yes- being naked fixes it! Take them outside, too, it's easier to clean up and a little sun shine will do wonders to their bums *obvi only a few minutes so the dont burn

Sydni posted this 15 January 2019

I tell every new mom this!


let me run around naked for 5 min after diaper changes! that changed my life!

ROSE posted this 15 January 2019

Aw poor baby no I have never had that experience.Read some good reviews on  Boudreaux Butt Paste

Erin posted this 17 May 2019

YES!  Air is good for the bottom! Cloth diapers also breathe a little bit better. There was a time I feared I'd have to go that route.

Carla posted this 17 May 2019

Yes! My pediatrician called it "air time"! He suggested doing it outside to avoid a mess, but I guess puppy pads work too!

Jess posted this 17 May 2019

Boudreaux Butt Paste is the best! A thick layer with every change, a bath every day, and some naked time to dry out.

Brianna posted this 17 May 2019

Ok this is weird but my dr said that when a baby is teething, the extra saliva they swallow can cause a bad diaper rash. For that he said to mix cornstarch with plain liquid antacid to make a paste and use that until the rash clears up
