I second petroleum jelly (give it a try!). I use it every diaper change and it works just as well as any diaper cream for my baby (preventative, I've never used it to treat).Gutty96 wrote: ↑Jul 27th, 2017 5:24 pmYes, well they are sitting in poop, that is everything you body doesn't want, so the sooner they are out of it, the better.
For the most part we used either petroleum jelly, or this salve that my sister sell (Naturalpathic Doctor) which will cure 98% redness the first time. Both of mine Being boys, they have those spots where the twig and berries and sack will always stick together, this is always a spot where a little raw spot could break out. If all else fails, one night with some Desitin cleared anything the salve wouldn't.
My baby got a terrible diaper rash (that then got infected) after switching to size 4 diapers - I realized after the fact that I was changing wet diapers less frequently because the diaper was so much more absorbent. Honestly, change diapers frequently and you probably don't even need a cream.
With all that said, get samples and see what works best for your child. More expensive doesn't necessarily mean it'll work better. Petroleum jelly is pretty cheap in comparison and it works miracles on my baby's butt.
