My little one is 3 weeks old and has had a sore bottom for about a week...have switched back to cloth nappies which has stopped it getting worse, and been using sudocrem but he still has a little raised bit of broken skin, about 2cm long. It doesn't seem to be healing up.
Sudocrem is vile- always seemed to make my two worse! Try olive oil after he is all cleaned up. Just rub on a thin layer (don't douse him like he's about to be cooked ) and put on the nappy. I know it sounds a bit weird, but it is amazing stuff- just make sure it isn't infused with anything, like chili or lemon...
And I agree with Enid, if you can get him clean enough without wipes maybe steer clear until he isn't so sensitive.
