Teething, which often begins in babies around six months, can be a challenging time for both parent and baby. During this period your baby or toddler may seem ‘out of sorts’ and irritable, with many minor symptoms such commonly being blamed on the ‘teething’ phase.
Teething does not directly cause nappy rash. However, nappy rash can be caused by your baby’s skin coming into contact with stool and wee in their nappy, and if your baby is suffering from teething-induced diarrhoea, this may increase the likelihood of them suffering from nappy rash.
