My LO has a diaper rash on her little bottom. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: I was wondering, since i am a first time mom, what would be the best diaper rash cream. She has sensitive skin and i would like to use an all natural product. I need input please! thank you for listening <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Weleda makes a nice zinc oxide diaper cream. They also have a calendula cream, but it is lighter and doesn't provide as strong a barrier.

We have used "Triple Paste" for our ds in the past. He had really bad trouble for while but this totally knocked it. It is zinc oxide but in a higher formulation. It is not presecription but is usually kept behind the pharmacy counter because it can be pricey. You would just have to ask. Otherwise you can get it online too. HTH!

In all honesty, we found the following regimen worked better than any cream or product we tried...<br><br>
No wet wipes; clean baby only with water on a washcloth<br>
Air dry<br>
If bad rash is present, extra air time and then<br>
breastmilk on rash<br>
let milk dry<br>
cover with lasinoh (or unpetroleum jelly) to seal and protect from moisture<br>
put on diaper<br><br>
As rash improves, cut out the lasinoh<br><br>
Dd2 is 17 months and hardly ever gets rashes. When I notice any irritation, we immediately let her go bare or in her loose cd with no cover<br><br>
I'm sooo grateful to the 2 friends who shared this with me when dd2 was younger!<br><br>
Hope it helps you as well!

I tried them all (thank you baby shower) but have recently switched to plain unrefined coconut oil. Took care of a bad rash and has been great since. Another thing that helps amazingly well is sun drying the dipes.

David rarely gets rashes, but when he does I try to keep him uncovered for a little while. I also squirt a little breastmilk on it, which usually clears it up immediately.<br>
Jacks Magic Beanstalk makes their own diaper cream/salve. I have used it and it works very well and very quickly. I can't remember all the ingredients, but I know it does come in a sensitive formula, which is what I use.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/yeahthat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yeah that">: I never tried the rest. I will definitely keep them in mind though if a rash rears it's ugly head again.<br><br>
We tried everything all at once, (my poor baby's bum was raw for weeks-I was desperate) so I am honestly not exactly sure what worked. We made sure to basically "towel" dry his bum before putting anything on and like the PP said air dry as long as possible. We used Aveeno soak for his bath. Raw silk liners on his cloth diapers per MDC member's suggestion and changed his diaper very frequently. We also ended up using Butt Paste. I was doubtful b/c of the cartoony packaging, but the rash completely cleared up afterwards.<br><br>
Again, I think it was a combo of everything.<br><br>
It's hard to see lil ones in any pain <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><br><br>
Good luck! Hope this helps!

I have found that the reason of a bum rash is due to imbalance in the gut or yeast. Anytime my dd started getting rashy and when she had a HORRIBLE rash due to runny poops(gut problem) I take a probiotic capsul, pour out the powder and mix a little water to make a paste and smear that on bum. I give it to baby orally as well. I have seen that work the best even after using cream etc.

Same here. My DS had *the worst* diaper rash a few months ago and nothing that we tried worked. Triple Paste did the trick. It is very $$$ but effective.
