My now 3 wk and 5 day old son has a constant diaper rash! Since at least a wk old. I have gone through 1/2 a tube of A&D which doesn't work at all and my tube of Desitin has enough left for a diaper or two. The diaper rash is only on his butt (the inside of the butt cheeks I guess you could say). I never let him go more than 1.5 to 2 hrs in the same diaper. I also change him as soon as I know he has a soiled diaper. Could this diaper rash be from what I am eating seeing as how I am breastfeeding? Or could this be sensitive skin? What diaper rash creams could I use to help this? It got to the point of bleeding when I was using the A&D ointment. I know people have recommended Triple Paste, but it is like $25 for a little container! I am on the verge of caving in and getting the Triple Paste, wanted to get other suggestions first though. Thank you all in advanced!!
