To protect baby's skin, certain steps are essential
Gentle skin cleansing
Select skin cleansing and care products adapted to baby's fragile skin: hypoallergenic formulas, guaranteed tolerance on babies.
The art of drying
Delicately wash the skin and dry it without rubbing, dabbing it with a clean towel.
Beware of dirty nappies
Frequently change nappies to avoid maceration that could occur when in contact with stools and urine.
A dry bottom
Choose absorbent nappies that insulate the skin as much as possible against humidity.
Avoid excessively tight nappies, synthetic pants that prevent good evacuation of humidity.
After each change, apply repair cream, enriched with anti-bacterial agents all over the bottom area.
Wash your hands
Wash hands thoroughly after each nappy change.
The right temperature
It is recommended to launder washable nappies at 90° minimum in order to eliminate commensal bacteria.
Washing detergent: an important factor
Use gentle detergents, hypoallergenic, with low surfactant content to wash nappies and textiles in contact with baby's skin.
Consult a pediatrician
See your pediatrician if the nappy rash starts to ooze or breaks out into pimples.
