Baby Illness/Ailments


Skin Ailments

Diaper Rash

  • Diaper Rash
      • Wipe for poop diapers only (NOT wet diapers)
      • After wiping, use clean diaper to pat dry the wet areas (better to be in the diaper than on their skin)
      • Air out by letting them go diaperless at least 10 min a day
      • Use thick pastes like Beautycounter Baby Calming Diaper Rash Cream and Triple Paste


  • Tips:
    • Avoid hot water
    • Avoid sweating
    • Hydrate
  • Products:
    • California Baby Eczema Cream
    • Beautycounter Protective Balm
    • Tubby Todd All-Over-Ointment and Dream Cream

Baby Acne

This regimen cleared my daughter's (very bad) baby acne in 3 days! I did this twice a day then maintained with once.

      • Mustela No-Rinse Cleansing Water
      • California Baby Calendula Cream
    • Cradle Cap - brush their hair often with a coarse brush!
      • Mustela Cradle Cap Cream
      • Mustela Cradle Cap Shampoo

Gastrointestinal Conditions


    • Fennel tea
    • Windi
    • Gripe water
    • Gas drops
    • Probiotics - a lot of people swear by probiotics for their fussy/colicky babies; I do think they help, but it didn't make a night and day difference for me. I tried this brand:


    • Baby Colic Tea
    • Look into milk protein intolerance
    • Are you using anything with fenugreek?


    • Water as directed by your pediatrician
    • Prune juise as directed by your pediatrician
    • Baby Constipation Tea

Respiratory Illness

Nasal Congestion

    • I find it extremely effective to squirt saline (such as Little Remedies Nasal Mist) in both nostrils, wait a minute to allow the boogies, if you will, to soften, then use the Nosa Frida to suction them out. Babies hate it, but it is SO effective. I do this before and after every sleep and then as needed during the day when babe is sick
    • Humidifier - great for babies/kids/adults with dry skin and respiratory issues of any kind.
      • Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier - we have this in my toddler's room and she actually loves it, plus you can add VapoPads when they're older
      • Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier - I feel as though it works better than cool mist, but I wouldn't leave it in a room with an ambulatory child as it gets hot; we've used this in our room and nursery while baby's still in crib. You can add VapoSteam when they're older
    • Diffuser - acts as a humidifer, but with the added benefit of being able to add essential oils
      • DoTerra Breathe Essential Oil Blend - for older babies
