I keep trying my boys (13 months) on oranges, but they get a nasty diaper rash every time. Has anybody been able to give their little one oranges?

thanks for the info, Karen. I think I'll just avoid oranges and juice for the time being!

I do put cream on them, but they still seem to get quite bad diaper rash with oranges. It looks almost like acid burns. They get it when they have too much sour apple as well, but are fine with tomatoes.

I give cuties to my 12 month baby but I follow up with making her drink baking soda water its gross but neutralizes the pH.

Mine have oranges ok. They often poo out the teeny segments but generally they eat them with no problems

I just looked it up, and this is what I found...

1, A mother says her doctor told her to just dilute the orange juice and keep salve on their bottoms until they get used to it, because if they are not allergic, they eventually will get used to it.
2, "We use lactonix granules which you ask for at a pharmacy window. With this added to her drink once a day...no diaper rash and she can drink anything..."

how bad of a rash is it? can it be avoided if you put some vaseline or cream on him before you give him the oranges? i give my little girl naval orange slices and orange juice all the time.

My daughter loves oranges. I peal off most the clear skin they have after you peal off the hard skin. This allows her to eat it without chocking on it :)
I did some research on giving children oranges and about allergies as well food intolerance. Check out this page http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/allergy... . Hope it helps :)

My little girl LOVES oranges! She runs into the kitchen and points to the spot we keep them! Good luck!!

My daughter LOVES mandarin oranges. They are her favorite. Haven't tried regular oranges yet. But I would imagine she would just suck the juice out like she does with lemons!

sounds like he may either be sensitive to them, or even possibly allergic to them. The acidity of them may be changing the ph of his urine, and this could be very irritating to sensitive skin. Sounds like you need to make a call to the pediatrician!

My Son loves mandarin oranges. Regular ones he just sucks the juice out of them.
