Sore bum cheeks after starting potty training
5

nc2000000 · 11/01/2021 20:03

We started potty training a few days ago and my son has got quite sore looking bum cheeks- has anyone else had this? We're just using an ikea potty, but could it be the plastic?

Hi there. My daughter got the the same thing. She kept scratching at it too. I wasent sure what caused it as we have a plastic potty other than maybe it's s big change for their skin as it's not hidden and protected in a pull up anymore? She also has sensitive skin and wondered if it could of been the new underwear? Anyway I started giving it a little water wash, a thorough gentle dry and put sudocream on every couple of couple of hours and that done the trick to get rid of it. It hasen't come back now.

I'd try a different potty. We had 2 for DD and one of them left red marks that lasted a while but the other one was fine.

Also consider whatever product you use to clean the potty as a possible culprit.

My 2.3 year old DS has this too. I thinks it’s where he scratches as the label in his pants and sometimes leggings seem to irritate him. I suppose after 2 years of having a nappy against your skin then all of a sudden something different it might just irritate a bit. I’ve just been putting sudocrem on when I put his bedtime nappy on.

@Ineedredshoes that's a good thought about what I'm cleaning it with as probably been to harsh, I've changed it today, hope that makes a difference.
Other issue I have is he poos when asleep a bit but doesn't wake him so In morning can be a mess so makes his bum sore.
