when he is eating tuck a burp cloth around his cheek and then if it runs down it hits the burp cloth and soaks in, i always tuck a cloth under my boob when feeding because donna likes to leak out the side of her mouth on the underside so i get soaked and she gets it stuck in her neck rolls and her ear. its cute at first to clean it up but after a while it gets tedious, then ointment should clear it up

Karly used to get a terrible rash on her neck (more like her neck rolls). I used to put a small amount of diaper rash ointment (A&D works, but i like Desitin Creamy), and tried to keep the area dry, especially after feeding. If it gets worse, talk to your pediatritian!

Actually, the rash is probably from heat & sweat; a dab of breastmilk can help it heal.

keep the neck dry and make sure you clean it REALLy well if milk gets in there it starts to smell really bad too..so just keep it dry and clean with a burppy rag or bip and clean it after feedings just incase some get there with the rag

I just keep the burp rag or a bib under my daughters chin so anything that runs down gets absorbed.

After i feed my son and through out the day I will just take a nice warm cloth or a wipe and clean his all around his neck... It really helps, he hasnt had any rashes or anything of that sort...

I had a chunky monkey baby and she would always get a rash under her neck so I would put some of the clear desitin which seemed to work but it was messy so somone told be to use cornstarch which I also used for her butt rash and it worked great. Knock on wood but its been several month and she hasn't had a rash bck since and I ue the corn starch at every diaper change.

I work with a company that makes a difference in our world. The products are so much safer, better, and healthier because they use all natural ingredients in their products compared to the products from the grocery store. You would be surprised to learn how many toxic ingredients you can find in home and personal care products. We have a children's line of shampoos, lotions, vitamin, and soaps. We also have sunscreen that I am confident enough to put on my 8 month old. She has never broken out or gotten a rash with any of the products I use for my children. In fact, their allergies and asthma attack have reduced dramatically since I started using the products. This is someone I am proud of and enjoy working with from home. We have a team to help, train and guide you to success either as a preferred customer or as a business partner. We are the Team, the team that cares about you.

I used Lansinoh, its a lanolin based product i used it for cracked nipples with breastfeeding too and its waterproof so when milk hits it again it runs straight off :) oh and i used zinc and castor oil too, that worked wonders by the next feed a few hours later but you gotta try n dry the area first which is hard when they are in pain and wont lift their little chins.

I use hydrocotazone then a cream (not lotion) over it with my son, who is 6 months old. It will clear up within hours. Then just reaply as needed. This also works anywhere he is getting a skin irritation. I hope this helps you! Good luck!

I havent had to yet, but Ive read a lot of info saying cornstartch or petroleum jelly will protect the area. My son is drooling pretty bad from teething, so we are gonna be in the same boat pretty soon

I use cornstartch in the folds of my daughter's neck to prevent rashes, it works great. Don't use talcum powder, because they can inhale it, but you can use any powder made with cornstartch. Johnson and Johnson's has a cornstartch baby powder with aloe, that's what I use. Good luck!
