Overnight protection helps everyone sleep

When your baby sleeps through the whole night, everybody rests. However, the long hours without a change will worry parents whose babies have experienced overnight diaper rash. No parent can sleep well with that on the mind.

Parents may want to wake their baby for a late-night diaper change, but there are easy steps to protect against diaper rash without disturbing anyone’s dreams.

  • Clean and dry your baby’s skin before bed
  • Apply a layer of DESITIN® Maximum Strength Original Paste onto your baby’s bottom
  • Use an overnight diaper that fits your baby and isn’t too tight
  • Repeat nightly to prevent diaper rash

All-night prevention and relief starts before bedtime

Applying a layer of DESITIN® Maximum Strength Original Paste forms a protective barrier that guards your baby’s skin all night from irritating bacteria caused by urine, feces, friction and moisture.

In fact, 9 out of 10 babies showed significant reduction in diaper rash severity in 12 hours.

After a good night’s rest, start your baby’s day by cleaning their bottom gently, patting the area dry and reapplying a DESITIN® product to protect during the day.
