If you are giving her babyfood, it could be that. Try feeding by colors to single out what may be giving the rash. My lil one had a rash and I put Aveeno on it and the next day it was super gone.

If you use disposable nappies it could be a reaction to them. I had to use cloth diapers for my daughter. Inconvenient, i know, and just as pricey as disposables if you use a service but it fixed the problem. It was easier to potty train her too! I don't think she liked having a dirty, wet bum. Cloth aren't as absorbent as disposables...

My daughter used to get bad rashs all the time and i tried everything this is what i found to help the best .Try washing bottom in warm water with cotton wool, pat dry, allow lots of free nappy time. Try a zinc cream for a few days and if you don't see any improvment it may be bacterial and need a cream from the doctors. Otherwise your bub may have sensitive skin in that case try bepanthen or something natural.

Yeah, teething causes littlle ones to swallow lots of saliva. Which in turn can cause a rash. Bare bum time, and finding a good cream are great ways to combat this.

Without a rash I like to use whats called "Udder Cream" found at the hardware store. Odd I know but its what farmers use on dairy cows and is completely chemical free. And when Ella has a rash I like to use Burt's Bees Baby Bee cream. It does the trick for Ella everytime.

Bepanthem cream is really good but i find the best thing is so let my daughter spend alot of the time without her nappy on. I just lay her on a towel over a waterproof mat and let her have a good kick around, I do this for about half an hour when she first wakes up and then when we're at home I let her for 5 or 10mins every nappy change. I also change ehr nappy as soon as she does a wee, yeah it costs alot in nappies but my daughter's bum hasn't been sore ince she was first born!

It could be a number of things depending on what color the rash is and so forth. It could be an allergic reaction to certain foods. Did you feed her anything new or taboo that she hasn't tried before? It also may be a certain type of formula, like soy or lactose based.

Or... It might be from you not changing her diaper often enough and her sitting in too much pee pee, which causes the skin to become irritated and to break down. I have heard that Bordeaux Butt Paste is good. I have a tube, but my son hasn't gotten anything yet. Its a barrier cream with Zinc Oxide that provides a protective barrier to babies sensitive bottoms. You can get it at Target.
