4. Pat the butt dry with a towel or wash cloth. Do not rub to avoid friction on baby’s delicate and soft skin.
5. Air out the butt for a minute.
6. Apply a generous amount of Diaper Rash Cream with zinc. Then apply another generous amount of Daily protective clear cream/ointment. The clear cream/ointment will help repel pee from irritating and absorbing into baby’s skin.
7. Put on the most natural brand of disposable diaper or cloth diaper.
8. Repeat these steps for every diaper change.
