Parents/caregivers of subjects in both groups will administer the product with each diaper change throughout the course of the study period. Product can be applied liberally as needed. Diapers and skin cleansing interventions will stay constant throughout the treatment period. Subjects will be assessed by the study doctor, parent/caregiver will be asked about any adverse effects. Parent/caregivers will also be asked to complete a daily diary that asks about changes in their baby's diaper dermatitis, a Visual Analogue Scale severity assessment of their baby's diaper dermatitis, and observations related to product use and the baby's comfort level. Parents/caregivers will also be given a questionnaire rating the use of the study products.
