Re: Diaper cream

When I needed a quick barrier to protect dipes I just cut up an extra little receiving blanket. We had a ton of them.

Re: Diaper cream

Weleda or burts bees creams work pretty well for my son and I've found both at my local shaws. Honestly the best diaper cream I've used is grovia magic stick, but I have no clue which stores would sell it (besides online). It is completely natural and since we've switched a few months he hasn't had a single rash, which is amazing considering he used to get them every week!

Re: Diaper cream

I haven't seen bag balm mentioned so I'll give it a shout. My sister gave me a tin a while ago. I had no clue what the stuff was so i looked it up on amazon. A lot of reviewers said it was a great diaper rash balm, and a lot of others said it stained. I bought some liners to protect my diapers IF/WHEN I noticed staining. When dd was newborn, her skin was so sensitive that we used it every other day whenever she became red. It usually cleared up the redness before the next change and I have yet to notice a stain anywhere. We now use it about once a week but we have never encountered a true, angry rash - just a couple bumps here and there. Works great on the heat rash that develops in their little folds, too.

It sticks to fleece and microfiber, though, so I wouldn't recommend it for older babies that are going longer in between changes if they are wearing fleece or mf.

I am not a fan of anything Burt's Bees, although I have tried really really hard to try and be one. just seems their products never live up to their hype and I can pay the same amount elsewhere, and get more.
