I love the Target brand Up&Up. I try to buy as much as I can that brand, it's almost 1/2 cheaper than name brand a lot, and the quality is right up there, in my opinion. We have used their wipes since day 1. We use the sensitive kind. I use their formula, razors for myself, pretty much anything! But we have always used Pampers diapers.
So, I thought I'd give the target diapers another try. I had used them once, and didn't think I liked them, but they may have just been too big. They do run a tad larger than Pampers. So I bought a medium sized box. Loved them. Loved the price.
So I bought the biggest box (96). And now she seriously has the worst diaper rash ever. It began about a week ago. I have a prescription for it that is not doing a darn thing. Nothing I've tried works. So I think she may be allergic to target diapers. Is that even possible? We bought a box of Pampers tonight. I guess I'll do the process of elimination, but if the rash isn't gone in a couple days, we'll have to return to the dr. It's raised red bumps, and just generally red. And she cries during changes. I've started using a warm wet rag instead of wipes when its rashy, and even that doesn't help. She's fine as soon as I get the new diaper on her. I change her every 2 hours, plus as needed, so I know I'm not letting her sit wet too long.
Any other suggestions? It's not up her back, or down her legs, or on her privates. Just her crack and cheeks.
Jacob got really bad diaper rash when he was about 2 months old. His dr told me the best stuff on the market is boudreaux's butt paste, so I bought the extra strength boudreaux's butt paste and the rash was gone in 2 days. that stuff is seriously a miracle worker. So I would definitely try some of that. I've never heard of babies being allergic to diapers but anything is possible. I would definitely try to change her really often which you are probably already doing. I hope it clears up soon. it is so painful for these little guys and so hard on mommies.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
I know, it just hurts my heart when she yells and cries in pain when I'm changing her. I put her in Pampers last night for bed, and mixed some desetin creamy with aquaphor, and this morning, it's 110% better! I'm so glad. Poor baby butt.
Yes, the Aquaphor is now a favorite of mine...thank goodness. Ryan's sister recommended it to us, and boy was she right! The redness is almost all gone, there are only a few bumps remaining but they have gone from bright angry red to just pinkish. Yay!
