Nappy rash advice video

A baby’s bottom is soft, smooth and very sensitive, making it vulnerable to irritation and infection – nappy rash.

It also has to put up with difficult conditions, spending most of the day and night wrapped tightly in a hot, damp nappy and in regular contact with what comes out of its bottom, so it’s not surprising that it often ends up red and sore.
