 Diaper rash is a common problem faced by the parents. We were not exceptional and had gone through this phase as well. This happens due to diapered skin is found wet and exposed to lot of friction from rubbing. So it is important to check the diapers frequently and should be changed when wet or soiled. Every time you change the diaper it is important to wipe the area gently with wipes. Then pat dry baby's skin and allow the area to get dry before putting on a fresh diaper. 

Avoid giving bath frequently:  Baby's skin is delicate hence it is crucial to protect your baby's skin. Frequent bathing during the first year of life can remove the natural oil from the skin and makes it dry.  You should not rub your baby's skin while bathing because this can harm your baby's skin.  Instead of frequent tub-bathing, sponge bathing can help to keep the baby's skin clean and safe.

So baby's skin should not be exposed in scorching heat of the sun. Uses of hat or umbrellas are beneficial to avoid this kind of situation.
