Hello Mummas 🙂 🙂
I think all you have faced a common problem for your baby i.e. diaper rash. Personally, I don’t like diaper concept and I have used cotton cloths for the first three months instead of a diaper. After 3 months I have used diaper during night time only. I am working so I think you can understand what my pain was!!
Now the question is why such rashes occur?
It is caused by a fungus called Candida. This yeast fungus grows best in moist places, such as wet diaper. It causes rashes on baby’s skin. Frequent bowel movement, skin sensitivity can cause diaper rash as well.
How can we treat diaper rash at home?
Need to wash the baby’s bottom with lukewarm water after each diaper change. Make it a habit.
When you are putting on a new diaper, check properly that the baby’s skin is dry
You can see in TV ads, that a baby loves to wear a diaper and can get a deep sleep. But the reality is different. So give them diaper free time as much as possible. Babies don’t want to wear a diaper.
Change your baby’s diaper frequently. Use a diaper cream after each change.

Another reason for the rash is baby wipes! We use such wipes to clean the baby after pee and poop. But do you know such wipes have chemical properties which can cause itching and rashes too? Continuous use can be dangerous for your baby’s skin. Doctors are also warning the parents to never use baby wipes. Baby wipes contain a chemical known as ‘methylisothiazolinone’ which may cause itchy red rashes.
Use water-based baby wipes always.
When I was searching for water-based baby wipes, I have come across with Mother Sparsh Water Wipes!
Why is this wipe better than other baby wipes?
- 98% Water Wipes
This wipe has 98% water and natural plant fabric. It is 100% natural wipes and good for baby’s skin.
- Environmental Friendly / Biodegradable Wipes
It is a biodegradable wipe.
Clinically proven for preventing Rashes
It is dermatologically tested and can prevent allergy, redness & rashes.
- Alcohol & Parabens Free
There are no harmful ingredients and the wipes are ‘methylisothiazolinone’ free. No plastic, no parabens, and no rashes.
It is awarded by IBB as a promising baby care brand.
In the case of baby wipes, it is safe to do a flame test before trusting a new brand.
Here I did a flame test to check Mothersparsh baby wipe contains polyester or not:
What do you need?
- baby wipes
- Light a candle
- Take a baby wipe, let it be dry for some time
- Hold one corner of the wipe near the flame.
Factors I have checked:
If the wipe smells bad like plastic after burning, then it proves that the wipe has a high percentage of polyester in it.
If the wipe fabric is burning without any smell then it has no plastic properties. It is made up of 100% natural fabric
My result: There was no bad smell like plastic.
The condition of the Fabric after burning:
If hard black lump occurs on the fabric then it has plastic properties.
If you notice ash like substances then the fabric is made up of water, natural plant and cotton.
My result: In my case, the fabric turns into ash.
As a mother, we should always check the product before applying it on the baby’s skin. Diaper to baby wipes all should be 100% organic and polyester free.
