Bowls for breastfed babies

Is it normal for a baby to have a little butt rash?  I read that breastfed babies are subject to having more diaper rashes because they have more poo than normal.

My little girl has sensative skin and gets rashes any time she has soft stools aka bm poop. I feel so bad for her, cause it takes time to get rid of it- good thing she loves baths!!

Hmm, never noticed any rashes until lately and it's more from certain foods I think he eats. Maybe the rashes show up from what you eat and passes on to them.

Try adding probiotics to her food. My son, who was exclusively breastfed, had terrible diaper rash all the time. The doc said it was because the flora in his stomach had a tad too much acidity. The amount of poo has nothing to do with it. You can buy culturetelle at target- it's a powder you can add to water or baby food that is full of probiotics. You could also try baby yogurt.

My daughter was EBF and often went 10-14 days without stools. She hardly ever had diaper rash, was rare with her. I guess every baby is different, sometimes it may have to do with what you have eaten which is passed onto the baby.

Well, diaper rash is definitely less likely and I am glad your baby’s rash cleared up, but if it happens again you might find it interesting that there are many other uses for mother’s milk than feeding. Some women have found that by squirting breastmilk on their baby’s bottom, it helps clear up the rash since breastmilk contains anti-parasites, antibodies, and anti-viruses…. It’s no wonder!
