Yes...it will take a couple of days if using rash cream. But even that, it will not help if baby's buttock was not totally dry before applying the cream. I used to clean baby's buttock with wet wipe follow by applying the cream...Only to find out later from another mummy that we should dried the buttock after wet wipe, before we can apply the cream. It works...
I am quite sure that aloe vera gel will remove your worry in a day time...but follow the below steps:
1) Clean buttock with baby wipe.
2) dry the buttock (with dry cotton or fan blow dry).
3) apply a layer of pure aloe vera gel on the affected area before wrap up the diaper.
4) see result by next day! but must ensure every diaper change must repeat the above steps.
Brand of gel : JORUBI 99% pure aloe vera gel (not just any other lotion with aloe vera content!) I bought in Guardian Pharmacy.
Not too sure...my baby also fart with small poo in a few occasions , I take it as stomach wind and he had not been drinking well on the previous feed...My baby is now on EBM and top up with FM (Enfalac), so far everything looks fine till now.
dont be too worry, just ensure the FM is warmed to correct temp and should not left outside for too long..discard away the prepared milk if it not consumed soon. I personally do not think that brand of FM will cause small poo...in fact, regardless the brand, as long as the FM intake quantity is adequate, the wet poo should not be small..
Let hope that everything will be well soon. get back to us again on the condition tomorrow ya.
