Will my baby get nappy rash?

Most babies get nappy rash at one time or another and if your baby succumbs it doesn’t mean you’re a bad parent.

Nappy rash is a catch-all phrase that encompasses a multitude of skin conditions. The two major causes are either the body’s naturally occurring flora thriving in warm damp conditions or the chemical reaction between wee and poo.

Ammonia is created when wee and poo mix for any length of time and attacks the baby’s delicate skin. In both there cases it’s recommended by the NHS that you change baby frequently, washing with warm water and pat drying thoroughly.
