Baby Bottoms 101: Diet & Diaper Rash

Diaper rash is one of those pesky problems every mom wants to avoid, because angry red bumps or an ugly rash on your baby’s diaper area is not something mama wants to see. But despite your best efforts, diaper rash happens.

Now what? Well, you’re a mom, so you can definitely handle it.  But what’s the best way?

How do you get rid of diaper rash quickly, so you can get back to funny faces, gummy grins, happy diaper changes and giggles?

Buh-bye with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®

For fast results, try Maximum Strength Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®, because it’s clinically shown to provide immediate soothing relief from rash discomfort.

Rethink baby’s diet

You can make changes to your baby’s diet that will help ease diaper rash. Certain types of food can aggravate her already sensitive skin and actually make diaper rash symptoms worse. Acidic foods are often to blame for making diaper rash worse. Foods high in fat and sugar can also be problematic. On the flip side, starchy foods can help ease diaper rash.

Acidic foods to avoid

If your baby had diaper rash, think about cutting these foods out of her diet until her symptoms improve:

  • Citrus fruits and juices
  • Tomatoes and tomato-based products (this includes foods like spaghetti sauce)
  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple
  • Grapes
  • Raisins

Protect against diarrhea

When your baby has diaper rash, the last thing you want to add to the equation is diarrhea or loose stools. Every baby is different, but the following foods tend to trigger diarrhea in babies, so it’s a good idea to avoid them:

  • Milk-based formula (cow’s milk)
  • Apple juice
  • Pear juice
  • Cherry juice
  • Apricots
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Apricots
  • Prunes and prune juice

Foods that are good for diaper rash

Starches are easy to digest and add bulk to the stool, so that’s why they are A-Okay for baby to eat if she’s struggling with diaper rash symptoms. Babies who are eating solid foods can eat pasta and fermented whole grains. Other foods that are easy on diaper rash are chopped up soft-boiled eggs and plain yogurt with probiatics.

Remember, baby cereal doesn’t just have to be old-school rice cereal. She can try cereal made from oats, quinoa, brown rice or other whole grains. Other starchy options for baby include the following foods:

  • Potatoes
  • Rice
  • Crackers
  • Bread or toast
  • Plantain
  • Beans or lentils

B.R.A.T. diet

If your baby has ever suffered from diarrhea, you’ve probably heard of the BRAT diet. This bland, easy-to-digest diet is used to bulk up baby’s stools. Since easing diaper rash symptoms is similar, the B.R.A.T. diet works too. Just remember to ease up on foods that bulk up her diet once her diaper rash symptoms improve, so she doesn’t get constipated.

B. = Banana

R. = Rice

A. = Applesauce

T. = Toast

Moms often refer to Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® as a “miracle ointment” that eases diaper rash within hours. If you’ve had a “Wow, this stuff is magic!” moment with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®, share your story with us in the comments section on our Facebook page. 

Feeding A Baby With Reflux | Parenting Blog | Babocush Limited

It may seem like it was just yesterday when you brought home your little bundle of joy then just like that, it’s time to wean your baby off of milk and introduce solid foods. This process might feel overwhelming, especially if your child is still experiencing baby reflux.

What are the symptoms of baby reflux?

It is important to note the symptoms. Repeated crying, vomiting or spitting up, arching of the back or neck during or after feeds, recurrent ear infections, incapacity to sleep or frequent waking, irritability and lastly, frequent hiccups. Babies typically grow out of reflux within the first two years of their life. With that being said, there are still some foods that can aggravate reflux and others that can ease it.

If your baby suffers with reflux, you may feel more comfortable consulting your doctor before you wean your baby off milk and transition them onto solid foods. As a general rule of thumb, you should avoid giving your baby solid food before they’re four months old.

It’s important that you start the weaning process with purees and baby led weaning.The best foods to feed a baby with reflux are purees of vegetables, particularly root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, swede, parsnips and sweet potato. You can also feed your baby any non-acidic fruits. You should avoid citrus fruits like oranges, apples and grapes, tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, cucumbers and aubergines. In addition to that, you should also avoid any foods that have cow’s milk proteins as well as spicy foods.

How to introduce solid foods?

By the time your little one is 4 to 6 months old, you'll probably have your breastfeeding or formula drill down to an art. However, don’t get too comfortable - your baby will soon be ready for "real" food. When it comes to giving your baby solid food, there are a few tips you can follow that can make the process much easier…

Wean your baby slowly

As a general rule of thumb, you should wean your baby slowly and let them take the lead on how much food they need. Don’t hurry meal times, allowing plenty of time for food to settle in your baby’s tummy.

Start with smooth foods

You should also start your baby on food that is completely smooth. The textures of different kinds of foods can be a trigger for your infant to spit it up. That is not to say you can never introduce different textures, just make sure that you do so slowly. You should also make sure that you sit your baby upright when feeding them.

Watch out for allergies

You can include any foods that are a part of your family’s diet during complementary feeding. As a precaution, you could introduce foods one at a time for three days at first and, if your baby has no issues, the next new food should be added.  

This way, any problematic food would be easier to recognise in the unlikely event that an acute or delayed form of allergic reaction occurs. Once potential allergens, such as eggs and peanuts, have been introduced it is recommended that you continue to include them in your baby’s diet, ideally at least twice a week, to ensure that your baby remains tolerant to that particular food.

Spacing the time in between introducing new foods will give you the opportunity to discover the foods your baby likes and dislikes. Although your baby’s reflux can make introducing solid foods a challenge, it’s by no means impossible.

The NPC of the National Academy of Sciences for Food has monitored the quality and safety of domestic and imported canned products.

E. Alexandrovskaya, I. Pochitskaya, A. Lilishentseva, N. Komarova, K. Ryabova, Scientific and Practical Center for Foodstuffs of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus

The concept of balanced nutrition provides for the intake of the necessary amount of food and biological components into the child's body, depending on the need for basic nutrients and energy, taking into account the physiological characteristics of the body and metabolic processes characteristic of a particular age. Of great importance in organizing the proper nutrition of children are complementary foods, in particular, canned vegetable products. The peculiarity of vegetable juices is that they are not only easily absorbed by the body, but also contribute to a more complete absorption of the main nutrients contained in other products. At the same time, nutritionists note insufficient consumption of fresh vegetables and vegetable juices, especially in childhood. This is also due to the fact that vegetable raw materials require pre-treatment of fresh vegetables. Vegetable juices have a lower calorie content compared to fruit juices, which is very important for dieters. So, if fruit juices have a calorie content of 46–47 kcal / 100 ml, then tomato juice has about 20 kcal / 100 ml. The low acidity of vegetable juices makes it possible to blend them with highly acidic fruit raw materials, which is especially important for Belarus. Vegetables have a lower and more stable price and can be grown in all regions. All this makes vegetable juices attractive for manufacturers and consumers who care about their health and the health of their children. Within the framework of the assignment of the State Program "Innovative Biotechnologies", subprogram "Biotechnologies in the Food Industry", the Republican Unitary Enterprise "Scientific and Practical Center for Food of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus" studies the quality and safety of domestic and imported canned baby food products based on fruits and vegetables, the study of nutritional value and authenticity. In particular, monitoring of natural juices and baby food purees on the Belarusian market was carried out, their study was carried out in terms of quality and safety. Including - in terms of authenticity in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Practice for assessing the quality of fruit and vegetable juices of the Association of the Juice and Nectar Industry of Fruits and Vegetables of the European Union A.I.J.N. The nutritional value of the products and the correspondence of its information to the label were determined. Researches of vegetable canned baby food of the following names were carried out:

1. Reconstituted tomato juice, without added salt, homogenized, sterilized and aseptically packaged for feeding children from 3 years old, for children of preschool and school age, Sady Pridonya trademark, Russia.

2. Vegetable-based puree "Pumpkin", "Alima-Gerber", Poland.

3. Natural carrot puree, trademark "Neposeda", Kletsk KZ, Republic of Belarus.

4. Carrot puree, trademark "Novka", Vitebsk POK, Republic of Belarus.

5. Tomato juice Rich reconstituted, with salt, for baby food and children's institutions for feeding children from 3 years old, production "Multon", Russia.

6. Puree from carrots and apples, natural, trademark "Novka", JSC "Vitebsk POK", Belarus.

7. Natural apple and pumpkin puree, trade mark “Novka”, OJSC “Vitebsk POK”, Republic of Belarus.

8. Carrot juice with pulp "Toptyshka", OJSC "Maloritsky KOSK", Republic of Belarus.

9. Pumpkin puree, trade mark "Grandmother's basket", Russia.

10. Puree from apples and carrots, natural, trademark "Novka", "Vitebsk POK", Republic of Belarus.

11. Homogenized carrot puree, Orhei-Vit, Moldova.

Studies of the nutritional value and chemical composition of samples in terms of quality and safety have shown that they comply with the requirements of sanitary norms, rules and hygiene standards "Hygienic requirements for the quality and safety of food raw materials and food products", approved by the Decree of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus No. 63 of 09.06. 09, imposed on complementary foods based on fruits and vegetables. Samples of carrot puree (trademark "Neposeda", RUPP "Kletsk Cannery", Republic of Belarus) and carrot juice with pulp (trademark "Toptyshka", OJSC "Maloritsky KOSK", Republic of Belarus) have a limit value for the content of L-malic acid. The content of the natural isomer of L-malic acid is the most important identification indicator of the authenticity of juices. If it is less than normalized, this indicates a dilution of the product. Thus, the analysis of the domestic market of vegetable juices and purees for baby food showed that the amount of natural canned vegetables without additives for children's nutrition is insignificant and is represented mainly by products of carrot and pumpkin processing. Manufacturers of canned products prefer to blend low-acid vegetable raw materials with high-acid apple or berry raw materials. Manufacturers of imported vegetable baby food add starch or vegetable oil to vegetable raw materials, which increases the nutritional value of baby food.

AsepFlex - JBT's revolutionary pouch filling solution

Company news

The soft packaging market is constantly expanding. Today, pouch bags are becoming the most preferred type of packaging not only for food manufacturers, but also for consumers due to their ease of use: they do not break, they weigh little, they are easy to open and squeeze out (use) the contents without leaving a residue. Application of pouch bags in the production of baby food annually shows a stable growth of 10% .

However, the growth of the market for pouch bags in the food industry is constrained by the imperfection of the applied filling technologies. Thus, solutions for aseptic filling of packages have low productivity and high cost of ownership due to a high percentage of rejects, and solutions for hot filling and sterilization of packages in autoclaves, along with low productivity, do not provide the proper quality of the packaged product.

JBT's groundbreaking AsepFlex in-line pouch filler solves the problems of existing low-acid filling technologies with a significant increase in productivity and enhanced equipment performance. Designed in full compliance with the requirements of food quality, AsepFlex aseptic filler provides a throughput of up to 30,000 pouches per hour. At the same time, the production efficiency reaches 95%, and the proportion of marriage is reduced to a negligible 0. 5%.

“In addition to its high productivity and aseptic filling capability, AsepFlex filler provides with the flexibility to produce ,” - says Bert Krakers, JBT's director of aseptic operations. “The size and shape of pouch bags can be easily changed without stopping the production process and changing formats on the equipment.”
According to Bert Krakers, the AsepFlex in-line filler handles a wide range of products, both liquid and high viscosity, and is designed to fill baby food (fruit and vegetable purees, various ready-made formulas), sports nutrition, breakfast drinks, which can be taken with itself, as well as nutraceuticals (dietary supplements). In addition, the unit can be additionally equipped with a nitrogen dosing system to reduce the level of oxygen in the pouches, which will avoid spoilage (oxidation) of the product and, thereby, maximize its shelf life.

JBT is a company with vast experience in the development of equipment to improve the quality and extend the shelf life of food.
