We all know that babies can get nappy rash and that it’s really common. So we wanted to put together some information for you, so you can save this away somewhere for when you need it.

As with anything baby related, there are loads of options for treating and preventing nappy rash and we know how overwhelming it can feel.
Many of us are given samples of different creams for baby’s bottoms while we’re pregnant and/or when baby is born. Some common and very popular brands are Sudocrem (Australian Mother & Baby Awards 2018 – Gold), Bepanthen and Curash Baby Care. The great thing if you are lucky enough to receive samples is that you can try a range of products to see which work best for your baby.
At The Nest Co, we cannot speak more highly of Weleda’s Rash Relief Cream. Not only does this cream smell divine, it actually works and it works fast on most nappy rashes. It contains lovely skin healing and calming ingredients such as Calendula Officinalis, Chamomile, Lavender Oil, Aloe Vera and Zinc Oxide. I found that when my two had nappy rash, I would apply Weleda Rash Relief Cream at every nappy change with a barrier cream such as EcoStore Baby Bottom Balm over the top and it would clear really quickly (often overnight with mild cases). I love the fact that it is a natural product with no nasties.
Other tried and true options are:
