Review: Diaper Rash Creams

For the first three weeks, Frances had the worst diaper rash.  We tried powders and creams, like Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Diaper Cream, but nothing seemed to work.

It wasn’t until a friend suggested Weleda Calendula Diaper Care, 2.8-Ounce that the rash finally went away. I’m pretty sure that means it was a yeast rash.  Frances is so much happier now, and I don’t have to waste my time worrying about her sad red tushie!

Tried this one, maybe these other calendula creams would be good too.

Have you had issues with diaper rash? What did you do to get rid of it?

  1. My daughter, E, had severe butt rashes as well. Hers were from yeast. I ended up talking with her doctor and we had to have enough naked time during the day to help her skin to breathe. I cloth diapered, it drastically cut down on the rashes and I also would apply coconut oil to her tush. We would do naked time after our afternoon breastfeeding, changed her diaper and just placed her on a rug for 1.5-2 hours in the afternoon sun.

    Thanks for the ideas, Laura! We use coconut oil for tons of things, why not on her tush? And I think that some serious naked time is in order out our house.

  3. I also almost forgot this. I ended up making a baby rash bath mixture that helped her skin tremendously.

    I posted it on my blog.

  4. Michele, I have some free samples of this diaper cream I will give you the next time I see you! Probably a lifetime supply. . . .

    Laura, I’m very intrigued by your baby rash mixture. I might have to give it a try next time she flares up!

    Rebecca, can’t wait to see you!
