What do you use? We used aquaphor the most with Alex but now that we're doing cloth we're switching to CJs BUTTer. We still have a huge tub of aquaphor left but it is so good for faces, hands, knees, elbows etc i don't feel bad about it.
We would have purchased a single tub of CJs but DH and I couldn't pick a scent that we both liked so we ended up getting the sampler pack, lol. We also found recipes online for how to make a similar product so we'll be using the sampler tub(lets?) to house that mixture when we decide to do it.

I like to experiment with diaper creams. Our favorites are Weleda calendula, coconut oil, and CA baby. I also had great success with various powders for chafing rashes when she was younger. My DD is very fair and has quite sensitive skin. I felt like we had rashes from time to time but according to my mom, those were all too mild to be called rashes, apparently we had much worse as babies and we were always slathered in Desitin! I am also a big fan of coverless time (cloth without a waterproof cover) and naked butt time. Air is amazing at clearing up rashy bottoms!
We'll use CJ's for overnight diapers to prevent rashes, but when they get serious I swear by aquaphor with tea tree oil mixed in. Nothing cleared up DD's rashes so quickly. The downside is you can't use it with cloth, so hopefully it won't happen frequently.
