My son is 9 months old, and teething. He is getting really bad poopy diapers. Like 6 a day! I have tried everything to help him. Like giving him bananas and oatmeal. But his butt hurts him so bad he screams every diaper change. Anyone have any ideas?

My little man got bad nappy rash for the first time due to teething. Their saliva is more acidic to help break down the gums, but this can irritate their bum as their poo is then also more acidic. I had to change him far more frequently, try to air his bum out (leaving him nude for a while here and there), and used a barrier cream with calendula to soothe. My pharmacist also recommended to put some egg white on his bum........actually works great as a barrier too! It has almost totally cleared up.......for now!

Poor bubba, my daughter can get a sore butt aswell so I find using a really good barrier type nappy cream as a base then a zinc base nappy cream on top of that seems to help alot I really slather it on too. Hope he feels better soon.
