Baby S Stinky Butt

ry - February 7

I bathe my dd at least once a day, sometimes two (i know, i know, i shouldnt) but I noticed the last day or so that her butt area is kind of stinky. I know this sounds funny but I honestly dont know why. She is clean and I dont notice any unusual discharge or anything, it is just kind of stinky. She also has a very bad cold and fever so i dont know if this could have anything to do with it.....anyone know?

Do you use wipes when you change your babe? Even when its just a pee diaper? If not, I would do that. Also, do you use your hand or a washcloth when you bathe baby? Hey, it's just a stink area! HaHeeeh!

Try baby powder...

Please don't try baby powder - many of them are highly fragranced, which only covers the smell. Some still contain talc as well, which is a known carcinogen.

Cornstarch is a good alternative to baby powder!

Ahhhh, babies b___ts just smell. Sorry too much info here, but how do you smell when you have your af and you have to wear a "diaper" all day? We laugh that our girls smell like cheese, but they are nice smelling in the morning after a bath.

maybe she has more gas while she is sick and thats causing the stink?
