Time to spill the beans on your best parenting tips for new parents.
So much experience is out there and I want to hear all about it.
Thought I'd kick it off with a tip for nappy rash, baby had a bad case after I was on a course of antibiotics (I exclusively bf)
All natural cure (thanks to a tip from my mum about coconut oil)
At each nappy change:
Salt water rinse
Followed by fresh water
Pat dry (don't rub because it would hurt!)
Coconut oil instead of usual moo goo nappy cream (coconut oil has natural anti fungal properties)
Cloth nappy on
Water only bathing morning & night
Dry & 20 minutes of nudie time (no nappy... Be prepared that there maybe an accident or two )
Cleared up within 48 hours
