Diaper rash creme
Ok so I figured we could talk about diaper rash cremes :).

What do you like to use and why?

Re: Diaper rash creme
There are options?? Back in the day there was Vaseline and desitin.

I am feeling more and more like the grandma sitting in the chair "When I was growing up... uphill both ways..."

. . . . . No shoes . . . . in 3 feet of snow. LOL (Sorry. Couldn't resist.) :)

I mostly used Desitin on Moose. The vaseline like stuff, not the white stuff. She always cried like it hurt with the white stuff. I've also used that Butt Paste stuff, which worked alright. My pedi told me to use Vaseline, that it usually works better than all the other stuff.

Re: Diaper rash creme
I knew a friend that used Vaseline around the hole after every change and it prevented rashes she said.
I LOVE butt paste. We got it as a joke and it was the best stuff ever. Cleared up the kids within hours.
I think all kids are different as to what works for them.

When DD was really little we used petroleum jelly (vaseline) as a barrier creme, but when she actually had a rash desitin cleared it up quickly. We've tried butt paste and triple paste creams and I always came back to desitin.

Re: Diaper rash creme
I am in LOVE with CJ's BUTTer. It is amazing, amazing stuff. We use cloth diapers and it is safe for those. But it is the kind of stuff that I use on my hands, my lips, my heels, etc. It is like a tub of vaseline...but made with shea butter and such other things. And the scents make you want to eat it :)

For really nasty antibiotic rahes...we stick with regular desitin. It clears it up better than anything else. But for everyday stuff, CJ's is our go-to.

Re: Diaper rash creme
I always did Lanolin. Patrick got pretty bad rashes before I figured out that when Parent's Choice changed their diapers to be "more like pampers" that he was suddenly allergic to them. Someone suggested lanolin and since he SCREAMED when I tried to put Desitin on him, I tried it. No fussing other than at the first touch, nothing like with the Desitin, so I've used it ever since.

I've also used Lanolin on some nasty dry skin rashes on got last summer and it was the only thing that helped.

So, yeah, Lanolin's not just for boobies! lol

Re: Diaper rash creme
We used Desitin, but since I am more into natural things now, I will probably look into alternatives next time around.

We use Zincofax and Penaten, but not very often, Danica didn't really have a butt rash issue. In fact, we're still using the same 2 containers from when she was born! lol

Love Boudreaux's butt paste (seriously!)...and definitely get Aquaphor - that stuff is amazing for just any type of skin issue the LO has (including chapped cheeks).
