  1. CLEAN: carefully clean the nappy area with warm water and cotton wool or a baby wipe (if your baby’s skin is very sensitive, stick to cotton wool and water), remembering all the little folds and creases too
  2. DRY: gently pat the area dry, ideally with a lint-free cotton wool pad. If it’s convenient, now’s the time to let your baby go nappy-free! Set them on a towel and let them have a kick about – outside in the fresh air if it’s warm enough. A few minutes every day can make a real difference
  3. APPLY: use Sudocrem Care & Protect at every nappy change to help protect your baby’s skin. It not only seals in the skin’s natural moisture, but also provides a barrier against the harsh chemicals in pee and poo that can inflame the skin
