My little man is just over a week old and his little bottom is raw. Never had my others have sore bottoms so little. What do you recommend. I've been putting Vaseline on him after he was dry and using some medicated ointment but nothing seems to help. I changed my wipes back to the ones from hospital to see if that helped too.

That happened with my most recent baby. 
Used the hospital wipes, used Butt Paste (the extra strength), and let his butt air out. I put a rag over his p***s so he didn't pee everywhere.

I got him nursing and no diaper just towel covering him. I usually don't have a problem with brand of diapers til they are older. I usually try to do the natural stuff so probably will try coconut oil or breastmilk. Hopefully something works soon I feel so bad

I was going to say breast milk if you're nursing! 

Two days ago A had diaper rash, not super bad but cream wasn't working. My friend told me to put breast milk on it... I expressed some into a little bowl and put it on him within two diaper changes it was gone

Mine was allergic/sensitive to one particular brand of nappy as a newborn. He's never had a nappy rash any other time so he's not particularly sensitive. Something about that one just made his poor bum bright red.

Buttpaste!!! It worked miracles on my sons bottom. Desitin and others would eat his skin raw and make him bleed.

All my newbies got bad rashes from constant pooping. I couldnt use wipes, i had to sink rinse their butts and pat dry until the rash cleared up. I would put coconut oil on after they were dry

Coconut oil is good

let him go diaperless for a bit to air out.


If the rash is peristant or has little bumps in it it may be yeast (which wont clear up with normal diaper creams) you would need lotrimin cream for that (they sell big tubes of it in the athletes foot cream section)
