Do you use any cream/paste on bottom?
 
Ok I'm confused, do you use anything on your little ones bottom in a CD? Is it just not needed for cloth? My baby is getting over an awful rash which is why I'm switching to cloth. Should I use something while she still has the rash? Then nothing once its gone?

I ordered Earth Mama bottom balm, Lansinoh bottom cream and Magic stick all natural diaper stick to try. Are these ok in cloth? I ordered BumGenius Elementals, Totsbot and gDiapers cloth. I also have Aquaphor which we used at every change before the rash. Thank you!

I like coconut oil... Good for baby's bottom and safe for cloth

I use CJ's esp if the bum is looking a little red. But maybe only use it 25% of the time.
I like lanolin (just the stuff in the purple tube) at night, bc it's super thick and a great barrier. Both are fine with cloth, wash right out in the wash.
We do have a magic stick which lives at daycare. They love the twist up tube!

I use plain lanolin at night and if she starts looking a bit red.

I use coconut oil sometimes (like if they poop and I don't catch it right away) but otherwise no I use nothing. My kids almost never have a rash and if they do get red then a little air clears it up in a few minutes. If their bottom looks fine then I don't mess with it.

That. We use stay dry fleece liners and always use Dr. Smiths which is the goopiest stuff I have found. No repelling, no issues on diaps at all! Sometimes you just need zinc and the coating it gives!!

We swear by triple paste. For full on rashes, cj's has never worked for us (or any other natural remedy such as coconut oil or lanolin). We just use a fleece liner to protect the diaper
