Nurturing Baby's Skin: Natural Diaper Rash Remedies

Parenthood comes with its share of joys and challenges, and for many parents, diaper rash is an all-too-common concern. If you're seeking gentle, natural solutions for your little one's delicate skin, consider turning to the goodness of nature with these effective remedies, topped off with a DIY natural diaper cream recipe featuring our Pure Covey Rise Farms Beef Tallow.

### Understanding Diaper Rash

Before delving into remedies, it's essential to understand what causes diaper rash. Factors such as moisture, friction, and the sensitive nature of baby skin can contribute to irritation. Instead of reaching for commercially produced creams filled with synthetic ingredients, why not explore the soothing benefits of nature?

### Natural Diaper Rash Remedies:

#### 1. **Frequent Diaper Changes:**
The simplest remedy is often the most effective, the type of diapers you use makes the biggest difference. Some diapers are better than others and wicking it away. I also recommend sizing up to a bigger size to help allow better air flow.

#### 2. **Air Time:**
Allow your little one some diaper-free time to let their skin breathe. Lay down a waterproof mat and let them kick and play without the confinement of diapers.

#### 3. **Gentle Cleansing:**
Opt for fragrance-free, natural baby wipes or a warm washcloth during diaper changes. Harsh chemicals can exacerbate irritation. I started just rinsing baby off when she has loose stool and this helped a ton!

#### 4. **Natural Diaper Cream: DIY Recipe**

- 3/4 Cup Pure Covey Rise Farms Beef Tallow
- 4tsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp teaspoon Jojoba Oil
- 1/2 tsp teaspoon Corn Starch
- 20 drops Lavender Essential Oil

1. In a heat-safe bowl, gently melt the beef tallow and coconut oil.
2. Add jojoba oil, corn starch, and lavender essential oil. Mix well until the let them solidify. 
3. Allow the mixture to cooled, and solidified using a mixer to mix it, creating a whipped texture.
4. Apply a thin layer to your baby's clean, dry skin during each diaper change, until it is gone.

This DIY diaper cream harnesses the moisturizing properties of Covey Rise Farms Beef Tallow, the antimicrobial benefits of coconut oil, and the soothing effects of lavender essential oil. Jojoba oil and corn starch add extra nourishment and a silky texture to the cream.

By incorporating these natural remedies and our DIY diaper cream into your baby care routine, you're not only addressing diaper rash but also providing your little one's skin with the love and care it deserves. Embrace the power of nature, and let your baby thrive in comfort and happiness.

While these natural remedies and DIY diaper cream can work wonders for many diaper rash cases, it's essential to be mindful that this method may not be the best choice if your baby is experiencing a yeast diaper rash. Yeast infections require specific antifungal treatments, and using certain oils or starches might exacerbate the condition. If you suspect a yeast diaper rash, it's advisable to consult with your pediatrician for appropriate guidance and treatment options tailored to your baby's needs. Always prioritize your baby's health, and remember that I am not a doctor; this is simply a recipe that worked for my infant. It's crucial to seek professional advice when in doubt.
