DO DIAPER DUTY

Baby bottoms are very sensitive and susceptible to rashes, so to avoid irritation, change your tot's diaper often (we know it's hard!). If you detect any signs of a rash or just want to keep them at bay, apply liberal amounts of Aquaphor Healing Ointment. For extra protection against allergic reactions, try one of the new plant-based disposable diapers. The Honest Company has superhip biodegradable ones that make a great gift for eco-conscious moms-to-be.
