I've had the best luck with a local cream, which is also lanolin-based. Nothing natural has ever helped my DS when he had a rash (CJ's Buttr, coconut oil, CA Baby, etc).

Re: Diaper cream

We use Babyganics from Babys R Us when we aren't using one of the ones we have to get online. It has not caused build up for us and works well at protecting his bum.

Re: Diaper cream

Anyone used the Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild balm? Or can recommend a cloth safe product that is also organic and fair trade?

Re: Diaper cream

If you are trying to prevent rash: coconut oil
If you are trying to clear up a big flat red rash: lanolin (lansinoh, purple tube, you know the stuff) I think every major grocery store sells it.
If you have open sores (DD gets from teething, ouch): a tiny dab of polysporin (like neosporin but NOT neosporin) and then lanolin everywhere else.

Just a tiny dab of polysporin has never hurt my dipes and lanolin and coconut oil are 100% cd safe!

Re: Diaper cream

We use coconut oil or Aveeno diaper cream.

I found the Burt's bees at our local grocery! It smells amazing, so I really hope it takes care of the rash & doesn't hurt the dipes. I would love to keep this one around!

Re: Diaper cream

I made a bunch of liners by going to Joann's and buying a half yard of fleece for a few dollars and cutting it into rectangles. Then you can use A+D ointment or similar without worrying. I do wash the liners separately, though.

If you or your baby have wool allergies, might want to stay away from anything that's lanolin-based, since lanolin comes from wool.

Update on the Burt's: I'm in love! Washed clean out my dipes with no extra work and in 24 hours dd is cured in all but 1 spot, which should be gone when she gets out of bed, by the way that it looked last night! And, it stood up to swimming! Stayed on for hours at the pool to protect her little bum from the water! YAY!!!!!!! :-)

I just used Coconut oil with DS and his rash disappeared after just 24 hours of use. Loved it!! I found it in the vitamin aisle at Walmart for $10.
