Vaseline: Babies have "bull necks", and wetness and formula love to get into the creases and cause irritation. Yeast may even move in, making more fun for everyone. A good antifungal like lotrimin (clotrimazole) kills the yeast, an anti inflammatory such as Hydrocortisone helps the raw irritated skin, and a barrier cream such as vaseline protects the skin from future irritation and allows it to heal.
