Burt’s Bees Diaper Cream is Better than Desitin

Diaper cream is something some babies never need.  Other babies, though, get it slathered on at every diaper change in order to avoid diaper rash.  Audrey was somewhere in the middle of these two extremes.  We used Burt’s Bees diaper cream and preferred it over other brands we tried.  I got a tube of Desitin for free and hated it.  Sure, it worked, but it also left terrible stains on our cloth diapers.  The Burt’s Bees cream seemed to go on more smoothly, soothe the skin, and protect from moisture without leaving residues on the diapers.  It also smells much better than petroleum-based Desitin.
