  2. It is really important to stop the chemicals in urine and faeces aggravating your baby’s delicate skin
  3. Leave the nappy off for as long as possible to let your baby’s skin get some fresh air
  4. Try to ensure that your baby’s nappy fits well and is not chafing or rubbing
  5. Avoid using any soaps, detergents or bubble bath that could be irritating your baby’s skin
  6. Ensure your baby’s skin is clean and dry before using a fresh, clean and dry nappy
