The sooner you put the ointment on the better. You don't want to wait until your dd gets a really bad uncomfortable rash and then treat it. You may even prevent it from fully surfacing if you treat it now. Good Luck!!!

I will never forget my daughters first (and only so far) rash, it was at just 10 days old. The Dr said it was fine to put Balmex or A&D on her, I felt the A&D worked better. It is also a good idea to give her some air time. Just let her sit for awhile without her diaper on. If youhave dispposable diaper pads, place one underneath her and let her go bare for 20-30 miinutes. It definitely helps :-) Good luck.

My 7 week old daughter gets red as well. I have heard that girls get red mire often and it is normal. I put vasiline on her all the time. She has been that way since I had her. No matter how often you lub her up she still seems to get red. She has not had a rash of anything as of yet so I think it is ok. Just keep an eye on it.

A & D WORKS BEST.
