Diapers: I have 2 kids and i found that they did better with pampers and huggies vs. The store brands, as far as diaper rash goes. It's better to spend a little extra money...Pampers and huggies are better for the baby's skin and they also hold more, so that you have to deal with fewer "blow outs." diaper wipes can also cause a diaper rash, so water and soft paper towels are a good alternative. Good luck!

Is there a brand or size of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

Yes: It is usually a function of the size of diaper. Too small of a diaper may invite more chemical irritation from the stool/urine due to contact with skin and retained heat/moisture.

Resistant rash: Rashes caused from irritation from wetness, fragranced baby wipes or diaper allergies usually improve with use of over the counter barrier creams such as Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream). If this rash is not improving, it may require a medicated cream to treat yeast.
