    I can't view your url cause my computer blocks it as porn - sometimes I hate my internet blocker.

    I did find another site that had pics though (Didn't think of looking it up earlier) and it looks nothing like that - thank goodness!

    Hi, Sounds like a lot of little babes go thru this! When my DD had the same problem I switched to Extra Sensitive wipes (Huggies, I think), changed her diaper as soon as she was wet, used cloth when able to and the thing that really helped clear up the red, sore bottom was Burt's Bees Diaper Ointment. It's expensive ($7.50 for a little tube) so now I only use it when necessary. I use Aveeno diaper rash ointment now and love it-no red bottom!! Good Luck!

    Usually a yeast rash looks like a red, slightly raised rash with "satellite lesions"--or scattered red, raised bumps.

    When you have a rash that's not responding to diaper rash cream and other attempts, it's best to check with your doc and see if he/she thinks it's yeast.

    My dd (now 5 weeks old) was getting a frequent rash too. A friend gave me a recipe for making my own wipe solution which I put in the wipe warmer with baby washcloths. Sounds very granola, but is super easy and his bottom looks great.

    Here goes...1 gal. distilled/filtered water; 1 "good squirt" Dr. Bromer's 18-in-1 hemp lavendar soap; 1T apricot kernal oil; 8 drops tea tree oil.

    Smells great, and dd loves the warm washcloth feel on his bum.

    Wash cloths in hot water with a residue free detergent like bioclean, and do 2 rinses, one with 1/2 cup vinegar and the other with few drops of tea tree oil and lavendar oil.

    Sounds like a lot of work, but I'm in the routine now of washing the cloths every 2-3 days (get about 20 on hand so you can refill the warmer when needed). Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!
