Re: Do you use any cream/paste on bottom?

*Constant* rashes or needing cream are not normal, and *occasional* rashes or needing cream are not abnormal.

Many babies who get rashy in disposables will clear up with cloth, but most babies will get a rash once in a while even with cloth. I use cream maybe once every 3-4 months. I am on my fourth cloth-diapered baby. The second one had Magic Stick every night before bed because she was just a bit sensitive to wetness. Every baby is different.

Yes, while your baby has a rash you will probably want to use some cream on it, but once it is gone, you don't need anything at all. What does the rash look like? Is it all over her diaper area, just in the folds, etc? If it is everywhere her diaper touches (like even her hips), then it is probably an allergy to disposable diapers. Is it red, raised, bumpy, patchy? If it is only where her poop has touched, it is likely from something she ate (sensitivity or allergy).

The creams you listed are all safe for cloth diapers.

Yeast rashes look especially "nasty", and cloth diapers will NOT help yeast rashes (medicated cream is necessary for yeast).

We can't use fleece liners, so we use suedecloth liners instead. The fleece adds to much heat under the PUL and causes rashes no matter what barrier cream we put on. Just be aware that you may have to find the specific combination that works for your baby.

Grandma El's from amazon - I only use it at night when she's in her diaper for a longer stretch of time. She doesn't really rash - it's just a preventative...

A&d ointment is all I've found that works for us but I generally put in one of those thin liners oh crud I forgot what their called but supposedly safe for creams but even before I discovered these I never had issues with the cream on cloth but when I read it wasn't supposed to be used with cloth I got some of the liners they are thin & soft so doesn't add any bulk really.

I use lanolin if there's a diarrhea-related rash or general dryness, and coconut oil for yeast rash or surface irritation. Lanolin will make yeast worse (thrush, too!).

Both are CD-safe and natural.

ETA: Don't use Desitin! It makes your diapers smell like dead fish. I bought some used that had this problem and it took AGES to get the stink out.

For a rash from being in a poo too long I would use coconut oil. The only time we have had to bring out the big guns and use zinc was for a yeast rash (the Dr. had us layer on 2 medicated creams and top with zinc). It was nasty and left open sores on her poor bottom.

Definitely try coconut oil, I put it on all the time. It helped clear up what I think was a yeast rash. Pinstripes and Polka Dots has a good reference for CD friendly creams.

I love the smell of Angel Baby bottom but its pricey- lucky a little goes a long way.

Re: Do you use any cream/paste on bottom?

Coconut oil and CJ's BUTTer both gave my ds a redder butt. We now use LuSa Organics Booty Balm when he has a hint of red on his tushy, and by the end of the day it's gone. Babies seem to be very different and sensitive to certain things.
