I'm a first-time parent and I've been having a few issues with diapering my newborn baby. Specifically, I've been dealing with diaper blowouts, diaper rash, and diaper discomfort. It's been quite frustrating and I'm not sure how to deal with these common issues.
For diaper blowouts, I've had instances where poop leaks out of the diaper and gets everywhere. It's really messy and can be tough to clean up. I've tried adjusting the diaper size and making sure it's snug, but it still happens. Any advice on how to prevent this?
Regarding diaper rash, my baby has been experiencing some redness and irritation in the diaper area. I've been using diaper cream, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Is there anything else I can do to treat or prevent diaper rash?
Lastly, my baby seems uncomfortable in his diaper sometimes. He'll squirm or cry, and I'm not sure if it's due to the diaper being too tight or something else. How can I tell if his diaper is causing discomfort and how can I fix it?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
