What changes can lead to fewer diaper rashes?

ANSWER

Some parents find these changes lead to fewer diaper rashes:

  • Change the type of diaper. If you use cloth, try disposables. You could also try a different brand of disposable diaper.
  • If you wash your own cloth diapers, change your detergent. Choose a mild, hypoallergenic detergent, or add a half-cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle.
