Prevent diaper rush
Almost all babies suffer from diaper rush every once in a while, and most parents turn to baby powder for assistance. While baby powder does help a little, by alleviating the chafing and rubbing of the baby’s skin against the diaper, it doesn’t prevent the rush.
Babies’ skin is extremely delicate, and so any kind of chafing is particularly rough for them. Vaseline can help put an end to the diaper rush: some parents say the jelly is a lot more effective than the powder, since the thickness of the gel helps to creates a protective barrier between the baby’s skin and the diaper.
