Hi, this is liz hood with aiden hood here and i am going to be talking about different rash prone areas to make sure that you pay special attention to while giving a baby a bath. Now, Aiden here is seven and a half months now so he’s really filled out nicely with some baby fat, but back when he was about one month old, back when he first stared getting real baths, his little armpits were really deep and I had to make sure to take extra care of them. To soap them up all the way down in there and rinse out really good and.
Make absolute sure that i got that area dry. now, another rash prone area for babies is just like this, there is a crease underneath the chin all along the neck and that area can get pretty gross as well if you don’t pay special attention to it. You know spit up and formula or breast milk kind of dribbles down in there and gets stuck and it can get real nasty if you don’t make sure to keep that area clean and dry. Also, there is a lot of creases right in here that can fill up with bacteria from being inside of this.
Diaper all day and during a bath you need to take extra care with that area as well. Make sure that you soap it up really good, down in to the crease, hold open the crease while you rinse out and take extra care to pat dry inside the crease as well when you are done. If you do all that you will keep your baby rash free. Another thing that I do when I am done giving him a bath, especially the little armpit areas, back when they were almost always kind of red and irritated, is I would put a little bit of Aqua Four or just.
