I still fondly remember the day I brought a new life into this world. The nurse put my baby in my hands, and the first time he wet my dress, I felt funny yet emotional. Later that day, the staff put a diaper on the baby and took care of him, giving him to me only to breastfeed and to put him to sleep.
I didn’t know anything about taking care of a baby, and I had no idea that babies pee and poo frequently. After I was discharged from the hospital, each day was a struggle. Firstly, I didn’t know how to put on a diaper. It always took a few trials before I succeeded.
Just about when I was feeling proud of my success, I saw a light, reddish blemish on my son’s diaper area. And then it got bigger and multiplied. I ran to the pediatrician, who told me about diaper rash and how it can be avoided.
That’s when I did some in-depth research to set up a diaper care regime for my baby:
- When he has a bath in the morning, I thoroughly cleanse the diaper area with water. And pat it dry with a soft towel before making my baby wear a diaper
- I change the diaper at least five times a day
- I also change it immediately after he soils the diaper. For this, I keep checking the diaper now and then to make sure that it is not soiled already
- Every time I replace a diaper, I wipe the area with wet wipes. Wet wipes are necessary as they are soft, and hydrate the region
- Post wiping him, I apply the diaper rash cream to avoid any chances of rashes on his delicate skin
- Diaper rash cream also removes any existing rashes, so that my baby is not inconvenienced
The regime seemed perfect. But when I wanted to implement it, a million-dollar question stared at my face: What products do I use?
I simply can’t go to a supermarket and pick up any baby product. When I’m careful in choosing my products, I need to be even more careful about my baby, right? He has such delicate and soft skin that I need to take every precaution to preserve his skin’s goodness.
I began my research again as I compared the various baby products in the market for their pros and cons. Some had chemicals in them, some were expensive, and some more were both.
But I found my solution in Baby Dove. And I was glad that the company has all the products that I need for my son’s diaper care regime:

I first wipe my baby’s bottom, and allow it to dry; and apply the rash cream liberally all over the place. Then I place a fresh diaper, and let him explore his world.
I would like to say the Baby Dove diaper routine has done wonders for my baby. He is active when he is awake, and when he is sleeping, he sleeps for a long time without any inconvenience. As a mother, it is a bliss to watch him sleep so peacefully.
