CJ's caused us some repelling problems too. But it really only affected our BGs, everything else was fine. Coconut oil didn't help our DS either.

Re: does anybody NOT like CJ's BUTTer?

I have only had one tube of it and I didn't like it. The tube itself was too stiff, too hard to squeeze out the ointment, especially when it got to be less than half full. If I were to order it again, I would get a tub. It didn't provide enough of a barrier for us, though. We prefer Burt's Bees.

we can't do any of the scented ones. DS has super sensitive skin, but we LOVE the unscented

I tried a couple tubs, and while I loved the scents, how moisturizing it is, and it washed really well out of our cloth, it did absolutely nothing for rashes. We use Earth Mama Angel Baby bottom balm.

CJ's does not work at helping diaper rash for us. It actually made it worse. I have a ton of samples that we dont really use. Sometimes I use it for chap stick, but I cant say I like it for that either. It does smell great though.

Re: does anybody NOT like CJ's BUTTer?

i love the scents but we have had some issues too. we had repelling when we first tried it long ago and i don't find that it helps a rash for us either. i am just trying it again and it still isn't helping much with diaper rash for us - i also think it was making it worse. it is good for my itchy dry skin though.

FWIW CJs will make up her butters without lanolin for you. You just have to ask.

We've tried the spray, tube and tub and all made DS break out. We've had luck w/ california baby brand, and I did just buy some Earth Angel Mama Baby for the new LO to try!

I don't like the cream /diaper stuff... Im not impressed I don't think it works or does anything spectacular. I've even tried it on rash and don't find it helped

I do like the wool wash and spray lanolin though
