With DD1 I bought two tubes of Burts Bees diaper cream, one for at home and one for a daycare. I still have the home cream and have NO idea what happened to the daycare cream, she never had rashes. DD2 came along and what was left of DD1s cream is all gone now. This one seems really prone to a red bottom. I just bought Mustela diaper cream and really like it so far, only put it on once. :LOL It was just really smooth kind of like putting lotion on but still thick to coat whereas the BB was much more pasty, not sure if it will work or not but we plan on using it as a prevention at this point. So tell me about the consistancy of the different types of creams you have used, are they easy to smooth on. Also what is it that is in these creams? Are there any I should stay away from? I just know the Mustela says it is 10% zinc oxide. Also it doesn't stink, it smells the same as their lotion.<br><br>
Oh and how am I suppose to use cream, a thick layer or a real thin rub it in layer. I suppose it would be bad to rub it in if it was blistering but so far her's hasn't been that bad.

What about looking into why DD2 needs the butt cream--- could it be the diapers? what she is eating? ect? I only ask b/c my DD only has had diaper rash a few times and usually it is related to food problems. We use tamanu oil and then the barrier cream. I love CA baby products and Burts Bee. Never used the other brand you mentioned. Good Luck!

I think she just has sensitive skin. We are using the same diapers as we did with DD1 who never had rashes. We tried using only wool, tried not using wool as her bottom seemed so cold in wool, tried fleece liners, tried no fleece, tried using wipes with all changes, tried using them with only poopy changes, tried using just water, tried using a soap and tea tree oil solution, she is eating the same mamas milk as dd1, tried going cover less so we made sure to change each time she soiled, tried a different detergent, we have tried quite a few things and she is only 3 months. She is just very sensitive.

I recommend Weleda baby calendula cream. It is extremely "clean", the cleanest I have found anyway, and is like magic! (They use the same methods to make their body products that they use for their homeopathics).<br><br>
We use it as a barrier cream and never had a diaper rash (dd is 9 months)! No rash from any other mom I know that uses it, either!<br>
We apply a thin layer at every change and dont rub it in too much, at night, we use a bit more since she will be sitting in it longer.<br><br>
They also have a diaper rash cream that I heard gives great results.<br><br>
Good luck!

My daughter is the same -- much more sensitive than my other two were. I like the Weleda calendula cream. I also like Boudreau's Butt Cream (not spelled right, sorry) but it tends to stain the diapers. Not sure why. I tend to use that only if she has really bad rash as it has the most zinc oxide of all the creams I've looked at. I've heard a lot of moms just use vitamin E oil.<br><br>

Anyone use Angel Baby Bottom Balm? I just got some, but the problem had been largely solved with Triple Paste. I love the smell of the ABBB and the ingredients list.<br><br>
If you have any experience w/it, please let me know.
