My bub has a rash from disposable nappy.

My 9 month old had a spotty rash in the shape of her nappy. Not a typical 'nappy rash', but like she's allergic to the nappy itself. I was wondering is anyone else ever experienced that before?

I have had friends whose babies are allergic to cirtain diapers. Try a different diaper brand and see if it helped. One of my friends has to only buy a cirtain brand of diaper while the others just had to use any diaper but the one that gave their babies a rash.

My son was allergice to Pampers (of all brands) and once we switched his diaper to Huggies, as well as his wipes he was fine. Make sure she is using the right size diaper and maybe switch to a hypo allergenic wipe once the rash clears up. In the meantime the quickest way to help her through it right now is with some type of diaper rash cream and clean her with a warm washcloth til its all cleared up.
