We Nurture

We are here to help you navigate the adventure of parenting.

Babies and toddlers are naturally wired for discovery. Their imagination develops with endless curiosity in every waking (and napping) moment—discovering the world one touch, one sound, one taste, one word, one crawl, step and stumble at a time. And Parasol is there to protect them from irritating diaper rash, to keep them drier and comfier, so they are free to explore, to imagine all that is possible.

Diaper Rash 101 - What It Is and Causes

What is diaper rash in babies?

Diaper rash is the inflamed skin, known as dermatitis, that appears in the area of the baby’s bottom. The skin is characterized by having a red coloration and with broken up skin that almost looks like scales.

What causes diaper rash?

Diaper rash is caused by multiple reasons, with the most common being the prolonged exposure of the skin to moisture from urine and feces. Other reasons may include:

Chafing, rubbing or irritation  - Often caused by diaper friction

Bacteria or Yeast Infection  - If the baby has been undergoing antibacterial treatment or nursing from a mama taking antibiotics (this leads to a loss of the protective bacteria that prevent yeast growth).

Allergies or reactions from irritants - Which could be present in the ingredients found in diapers, wipes, soaps and laundry detergents.

When a baby urinates, the urine begins to naturally decompose into multiple compounds, many of which may cause irritated skin and begin to cause a rash. For a rash to develop, the skin needs to be exposed for prolonged amounts of time to a wet diaper. Exposing the skin to feces will expose the skin to irritating compounds and bacteria as well. While urine by itself will cause a diaper rash, the real threat is the combination of urine and feces, or runny feces. This combination is the number #1 enemy of a parent, and the best course of action is to remain vigilant for when to change the diaper.

Tips to Avoid a Diaper Rash

Changing diapers often to limit exposure

Applying protective ointment and barrier cream

Washing the skin of the baby after every change

Making sure the area is dry before putting on a new diaper

These are all good ways of preventing a rash from happening or developing.

How long does diaper rash last?

A diaper rash should heal quickly, in 3 to 4 days with the application of over-the-counter medication. If a diaper rash persists for longer than 4 to 7 days under treatment, then parents should consult a doctor. Other things to keep a lookout for are the appearance of yellowish crusts, pus draining from the skin or the appearance of a fever.

Not all baby wipes are created equal.

Baby wipes aren’t all priced the same...because they’re not made the same. Our new plant-based Clear+Pure™ baby wipes are dermatologist-certified and formulated with only the purest ingredients. They’re stronger to prevent tearing, more effective at getting baby really clean with fewer wipes...and they dispense one wipe at a time. At the end of a long day of changing diapers (and at the bottom of your baby’s bum), that is all clearly the best value we know.
