If you’ve tried all the things but your little one keeps getting nappy rash, this one is for you! These handy tips will keep that little bottom happy.
Say Goodbye to Nappy Rash, Forever!
Here's the scene, your baby is crying… and you’ve done all the things, feeding, burping, rocking. You check their nappy and you find the culprit: a red, angry looking rash on your sweet babe’s bottom. Oh nappy rash… the dreaded rash that causes pain and itching on sensitive skin. There’s enough going on in life with babies (am I right?!) without having to deal with nappy rash so here are some ways to avoid it.
Use chemical-free baby products:
It is astonishing how many harsh chemicals (fragrances, dyes, other nasty things) are in conventional disposable nappies and wipes! Babies have thinner and more permeable skin than adults, making it easier for harmful chemicals to pass through the skin barrier. The best way to avoid nappy rash is to use all-natural products that are actually gentle on sensitive skin!
The biggest feedback we hear at Luvme about our nappies is that nappy rash isn’t a thing anymore! We only use natural, quality ingredients in our nappies and wipes and it makes a big difference. The bamboo in our Pandas nappies is luxuriously soft and naturally moisture-wicking keeping bottoms nice and dry! Conventional wipes often contain alcohol and fragrances which can be a major irritant to gentle skin. Our Luvme wipes contain a gentle, no-nasties formula made of purified New Zealand water and Japanese soybean amino acid.
One of the best ways to avoid nappy rash is to let your baby revel in a bit of nudie time! Babies love it and it’s the best way to get rid of moisture on sensitive little bits. Put down a waterproof mat or towel and free those buns!
Change baby often:
It might seem obvious, but changing baby frequently is key in avoiding nappy rash! Moisture causes bacteria which can lead to nappy rash so a fresh, dry nappy is necessary. Newborns need to be changed every 2-4 hours and infants every 4-6 hours (of course before if they have pooed.) Luvme nappies have a handy wetness indicator on the front that will tell you when your baby needs to be changed!

Luvme Eco is truly a close-knit, family-owned business and today, it’s our birthday! Woo hoo! Luvme began nearly 14 years ago when Kendall and her mum, Laurie, were confronted with the fact that every year 1.5 billion disposable nappies end up in landfill in Australia every year! They knew they had tofind a solution that was kinder to the Earth, for future generations. The first eco nappy was born not long after and the rest is history!
