Infant carrier: Usually at 4 months when the baby has enough head control. Ask your pediatrician at the 4 month check up if your baby is ready based on tone and strength.

What is the treatment for diaper rash?

Best: naked!: The best treatment is less time in a diaper-- and more time naked! dry your baby's bottom with a cold hair dryer or fan, and let him or her enjoy a bare bottom for a while. You can also use one of many diaper rash creams. Rarely, a visit to the doctor for a prescription is needed.

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
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.

Could be infection: Often time scales in this area could mean a fungal infection. There are prescription creams available from your pediatrician to treat this. You can try a barrier cream first- like aquaphor or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) and see if your baby's skin improves.
