Yeast Diaper Rash Treatment

home remedy for diaper rash
I’ve been cleaning up this blog, going through old posts and categories. I was excited when I came across an old post of a recipe for wipes solution.

When I had Bram almost 7 years ago, I ventured into the world of cloth diapers.  I L-O-V-E cloth diapers. During that time, I learned so much about cloth, essential oils, home remedies and (who would have guessed) yeast.

Yeast can be a problem for babies, whether they cloth diaper or not.  In fact, knowing what I know now,  I realize family members whose children battled constant diaper rashes, were probably battling yeast.  I wish I could have helped them then.

Yeast can also be an issue for nursing moms. Yeast (thrush) can be passed from mom (burning, red, sore nipples) to baby (mouth and diaper yeast/rash) and back again.  On and on until everyone is miserable.

Let’s see what we can do about that, shall we?

In addition to using cloth diapers, I also made my own wipes solution.  I would soak wash cloths or paper towels in the solution to clean up messy diapers.  Over time, I found my children never got yeast (or diaper rash of any sort) whenever I used my own wipes solution.  So this more of a yeast diaper rash treatment, than a simple wipes solution recipe.  The combination of ingredients really nourishes the skin and keep the yuckies at bay.

If your baby has been battling with yeast – or any diaper rash.  Give this recipe a try.  It worked wonders for us!
