Ykaie is growing up fast and she’s growing up a bright, healthy and a smart kid. I’m so proud of her and my heart jumps when my husband who works overseas, a relative or a friend tells me that I’m doing such a good job in taking care of her.
As a mom, I would do anything to protect Ykaie from anything that could hurt her and if I could do it until she’s all grown up, I would.
When she was still a baby, I remember a few sleepless nights with her. Some because she was sick with fever and I had to be her nurse and doctor. But there was one sleepless night because of a diaper rash that was left untreated for a day. I was a new mom at the time so I didn’t notice the rash until it was too late. Ykaie was uncomfortable, she couldn’t sleep and she cried all the time no matter how much cooing and cuddling and hele I did. I was heartbroken.
So I did my research and asked a well-experienced person about it –my mom. She told me to put a diaper rash cream for the rash to heal and advised me that I shouldn’t let it get to that point.
She also told me that diaper rash could be avoided by knowing what causes it in the first place and not letting it happen.
Diaper rash are caused by the following things:
- Moisture in Diapers – no matter how absorbent your diaper of choice is, there’s a tendency for it to leave some moisture on your baby’s skin, making it harder to act as barrier against infection.
- Friction – the constant contact of a soiled/ unsoiled diaper with your baby’s skin can also be a cause of irritation.
- Trapped Wetness in Diapers – forgetting to change the diaper longer than 3-4 hours may cause irritation on your baby’s skin.
- Illness that cause to change your baby to change her diet and make her wetter than normal can cause diaper rash.
