                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 ...

                  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.

                    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....

                      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.

                        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.
