Diaper cream

I need a cloth safe diaper cream that I can buy at a grocery store/babies r us/target. Does anyone know of one or what to look for that is not "safe"?
I really don't have time to order online, dd needs it today, and there are no cloth friendly stores very close to me.
TIA!

Re: Diaper cream

Burts Bees has a diaper cream you can use. Also, one from Method. Both you can find at Target. There is one by California Baby that is cloth diaper safe but I would stay away from it. They changed their formula, and I have heard of a lot of babies having problems with it. Hope I helped!

Re: Diaper cream

Coconut oil maybe? If it's serious though I always just use Triple Paste and a prefold or flat and it comes right out.

We use California Baby from Target. We have pockets and don't have any problems with repelling. If you have a rash already, you'll probably need something stronger though. It seems to be a better preventative cream. We use it at every diaper change and since we started using it at 4 weeks, there's been no diaper rash.

Re: Diaper cream

With our last baby, (not the current one). I noticed she would "catch her breath" when I would use California Baby rash cream on her bottom. Then her older sister told me that it burned when I used it on a red rash she had on hers. I think it is supposed to have menthol or something like that in it for a cooling effect, but my kiddos didn'tlike it one bit. I would stick with the Burt's Bees. Or go cut up a little thin flannel blanket, if you don't have anything to protect your diapers, and use one of the creams that aren't diaper safe.

I've used a couple different Cali baby products and they burn my son's skin. he screamed bloody murder and cried. So sad. I'll never use anything from them again. Coconut oil is the only thing I will use since its the one thing that doesn't bother him even with the worst rash. Even cj's butter hurts

I think I'll give the Burt's bees a try. She has super sensitive skin, so I really don't want to do anything too harsh. I totally forgot about a health food store not too far away that I buy our sunscreen at. They carry berts bees and may have other brands too. Thanks!

My son had a really bad reaction to their baby products.

Grandma El's. It's awesome! It's lanolin based, so you need to wash in hot to wash it off, but it does wash off of both synthetics and natural fibers easily. I saw it at Publix the other day and I know Target carries it. It has a pink label.

I thought Burt's Bees was okay, and used it years ago, and I still (5.5y later) have stains on my prefolds from it.

sadly, I've never seen Grandma El's anywhere near me, not even at our Targets. I think a lot of these things must be regional.
