If you're ready to start weaning it may be a
trigger for nappy rash

How weaning can trigger nappy rash

Introducing your baby to solid foods usually starts when your little one is around six months old, and it can be great fun to explore new flavours and textures together. But around 25% of parents report an increase in nappy rash when weaning their baby. Any change in diet can cause runny stools (poo)* and no matter how often you change your baby’s nappy, it can be difficult to keep your baby’s bottom clean which may lead to nappy rash. Why not use Metanium Everyday Barrier Ointment at each nappy change whilst weaning – you take care of the weaning, and we’ll take care of your baby’s bottom.
