Fact: every baby will get some kind of nappy rash at some time during their nappy-wearing life.
Sometimes it will just be a mild rash and your baby won’t even be aware of it – but sometimes (in fact, often) it can be so inflamed that your baby will wince every she wees.
The best thing is there are some very good lotions and potions out there which can ease your baby’s discomfort almost overnight. These are our faves.
