Pros: thick barrier for moisture, heals rosy areas

Cons: sometimes too strong for sensative skin and odor not for everyone

I used this product for my first baby. Good thick product blocks moisture when needed. Effective to take rosy in areas and I thought it was easy to clean . But my daughter develop some sensitivity to this and other strong creams, especially is she had some rash. Test on skin first.

Pros: works

Cons: ingrediants, cost

Okay so its not a natural product. We got our first tube freefrom the hospital, and itlasted until DD#2 was 4 months old.  Desitin works, even if its more expensive than Bagbalm, its  also alot easier to find in stores.

 

PRO

-works

-easy to find

-first tube free from the hospital 

 

CON

-manmade ingredients

-smells funny

-not CD friendly

 

Your mom probably used it on you, and you lived.   This is  not the best stuff in the world for your baby, but its far from the end of the world.

Pros: none

Cons: ingredients

I wish I paid more attention to what was in desitin 9 years ago, I would never use this now. Really diddn't help outwell enough any ways seemed like it would take days to get rid of the rash when I did use it.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: doesn't work, smell

This cream doesn't help my little guys diaper rash clear up at all. I feel it actually got worse when I started using this product. I also thought it was very hard to get off his skin. I won't be using this again.

Pros: None

Cons: Nasty ingredients, doesn't work, can't use with cloth, messy, hard to get off baby's skin

My son had to be in the NICU for almost a month (he was premature) and they slathered this stuff on his poor bum at every diaper change. They sent us home with a brand new tube and you better believe I tossed it!

 

This stuff is just not so great. The ingredients are questionable at best. There are a TON of natural diaper ointments out there that have the same amount of zinc in them (the active ingredient) without all the run of the mill cosmetics chemicals and preservatives. 

 

Plus, you cannot use it with cloth diapers, it WILL ruin them. And it's messy. And it doesn't come off baby's skin very easily! And it smells gross to me!

 

Burt's Bees makes a great diaper ointment with zinc, I'd suggest that instead.

Pros: clears up rashes fast

Cons: does not come out of cloth diapers, and causes them to repel

Great cream for use on bad rashes, but do not use with cloth diapers. I tried, and couldnt wash it out (even after boiling) it caused them to repel. I also tried using with a liner inside the cloth diaper - it still got through onto the diaper.

When my daughter had a really bad rash I did end up using this, but with disposables.

Pros: Inexpensive, thick, works great

Cons: Not cloth diaper safe

So this is the stuff my mom plastered on my backside in the 1970s. The smell reminds me of childhood.

Prior to the current cloth diapering craze, I cloth diapered my kids old school with cheap prefolds and pins. This was my go to for rashes, and always worked like a charm. My last baby was cloth diapered with "modern" cloth diapers, so we rarely used this, but always kept a tube on hand just in case. It healed up some nasty rashes! I especially recommend this for disposable diapering families.
