The Secret To 100% Rash Free Diapering For Newborn Babies

The Secret To 100% Rash Free Diapering For Newborn Babies

Ah, newborns. They bring endless snuggles and a whole lot of diaper changes. But those constant wet diapers can wreak havoc on your little one's delicate skin, leading to uncomfortable diaper rash. If you're looking for a gentle and eco-friendly way to diaper your baby, cloth diapering is a fantastic option.

This post will guide you through creating a rash-free cloth diapering routine with Just Bumm Newborn Cloth Diapers and Kewt Langots. We'll also explore the importance of diaper-free time, frequent changes, and why disposable diapers and wipes should be avoided for optimal skin health.

The Dream Team:

Just Bumm offers a perfect one-two punch for newborn cloth diapering. Our Newborn Cloth Diapers, made from 100% organic cotton, are soft and gentle on your baby's skin. The breathable material allows for airflow, reducing moisture buildup – a major factor in diaper rash.

Kewt Langots are another fantastic option, especially for newborns. These traditional yet modern Indian Langots are ideal for providing maximum breathability during the early months. Diaper-free time in Kewt Langots can reduce rashes simply because “Organic Cotton is the best for newborns”.

The Power of Fresh Air: Diaper-Free Time

Let your baby's skin breathe! Whenever possible, incorporate diaper-free time into your routine. Allow your baby to be diaper-free for short periods. You can start with a few minutes after each diaper change to at least 30 minutes or an hour in Kewt Langots a day. This exposure to air helps prevent irritation and promotes healthy skin development.

Frequent Changes are Key

Newborn bladders are tiny, and accidents happen frequently. To minimize the risk of diaper rash, prioritize frequent diaper changes. Aim to change your baby's diaper every 2-3 hours, or more often before the cloth diapers turn fully soiled. This will always keep the baby’s diaper area fresh and clean.

Ditch the Disposables (and Wipes)

Disposable diapers and wipes, while convenient, often contain harsh chemicals and fragrances that can irritate your baby's skin. Wet wipes may even aggravate the rashes due to constant wiping & irritation. Stick to gentle, cloth-based wipes and plain water for cleaning during diaper changes. You can consider gently rinsing and then pat drying the baby’s diaper area with cloth wipes instead.

A Gentle Routine for Happy Skin

By combining Just Bumm Newborn Cloth Diapers, Kewt Langots, frequent changes, and diaper-free time, you can create a cloth diapering routine that keeps your baby's skin happy and healthy. Remember, a little extra effort goes a long way in ensuring your little one feels comfortable and rash-free.

Bonus Tip:

Invest in a good cloth diaper laundry routine. Use a detergent that has enough actives, is fragrance-free and avoid fabric softeners, which can reduce absorbency. Read the Detailed wash routine.


How often should I change my newborn baby's diaper?
    • Aim to change your newborn baby's diaper every 2-3 hours, or more frequently if soiled. Frequent changes are crucial to prevent diaper rash.
    Why are disposable wipes not recommended for cloth diapering?
      • Many disposable wipes contain chemicals and fragrances that can irritate your baby's delicate skin. For cloth diapering, use gentle, cloth-based wipes with plain water for cleaning during diaper changes. Or you can gently rinse by taking them to the potty and then pat dry.

      Is diaper-free time necessary for newborns?

      • Yes, diaper-free time is very beneficial for newborns. It allows their skin to breathe, reducing moisture buildup and the risk of diaper rash. Aim for short periods (a few minutes to start) on a clean surface with a mat under or in Kewt langots to be mess-free.

      Can I use disposable diapers occasionally with cloth diapering?

      • While occasional use of disposables won't harm your baby, cloth diapers offer several benefits like breathability and reduced risk of rash. If you do use disposables, choose fragrance-free and chlorine-free options. Still, your baby may suffer from rashes, as no disposable diaper is ever free of chemicals or toxins.

      What are some signs of diaper rash?

      • Signs of diaper rash include redness, bumps, and irritation in the diaper area. Your baby might also be fussy or cry during diaper changes. If you notice a rash, consult your paediatrician, and do not self-medicate!

      How can I prevent diaper rash while using cloth diapers?

      • Frequent changes are key!
      • Use gentle, fragrance-free detergents and avoid fabric softeners when washing cloth diapers.
      • Allow for adequate diaper-free time throughout the day.
      • Use coconut oil or an expert-suggested lotion or cream to moisturize. Remember to use liners for cloth diapers when you use such creams. One of the popular rash creams is B4 Nappi by Curatio.
      With a little planning and the right cloth diapering tools, you can keep your baby comfortable and rash-free. Happy diapering!
