First off its, kind of shitty of them to send you coupons for more of a prodcut that has seriously hurt your baby. I would research into what similar parents have done, since this is something that has happened before. Has anyone taken legal action?

Anyway you can cloth diaper in the meantime? I wouldn’t trust any type of typer after that! Yikes!

I absolutely would. Take picutes and send them, make a complaint in writing.

Awh! That’s so sad. I use LUVs and never had any problems. You may need to start waking up at night to give a nightly change.

And I would for sure look more into this with pampers, they are supposed to provide a service for our babies, not cause burns/scars.

Oh wow 🙁 not good for little one. I actually had been thinking about getting those. Pampers are the only diapers so far have found that haven’t leaked.  Little boy however by morning his diaper is sooo full not to the exploding part yet and looked at the night time ones. This makes me rethink buying those. 

I would pursue it further with Pampers.  (and I know what you mean about diaper rash.  My little one had a rash so bad because we tried mandrin oranges yea not a good idea. I cried so bad because it was my fault he got his really bad rash)

I have no advice on the pamper debaucle but try leaving him bare to air out as much as possible and smear some vitamin e oil on. Just break open a capsule and dab it on to prevent scarring.

I always used cloth diapers, the square ones you use with big safety pins. I never trusted commercial diapers. Hope the rash heals soon, and you find one that works for him!

I had this problems with Pampers as well. Now we use a natural diaper. She has to wear regular diapers at daycare, so no choice. 🙁

The night diapers have some sort of chemical in them to make them more absorbant and I have heard many babies getting rashes and blisters from them (I’m a pharmacist).  You will have to try another brand.  I personally used Costco’s brand (Kirkland) on my kids; my son got a rash from Huggies. And for some reason boys get worse diaper rash than girls.

In addition to the paste your doctor gave you, you can also try Boudreaux’s Butt Paste.  It’s thick but it really works.

At the hospital, we also make our own concoction of what we call “Magic Butt Paste” which is Desitin or Zinc Oxide cream and liquid antacid (Maalox, Mylanta).  The antacid neutralizes the acid from the urine (which is what is causing the burn/rash).  Dab the liquid antacid on the baby’s bottom using a cotton ball then apply a thick layer of the Desitin cream.  My son had rotavirus when he was 9 months old and his bottom was literally raw.  This is what helped him.  Make sure whatever cream you use has 40% zinc oxide as it’s active ingredient.

There’s also a product called Triple Paste.  It’s pricey but it also really works.

Oatmeal in the bath is good too.  You can also try baking soda.  It works like the liquid antacid.

I hope your little guy’s bottom is better soon!
