Vaseline is the best & most inexpensive method. My family has used it for years throughout generations. Urine & feces doesn't stick to the babies bottoms, it protects baby's skin well for a decent amount of time too
Go all natural with it. U dont want to start ur little ones life off with substituted/chemically created junk, we have a natural instinct to protect our family why not start with the products we use. Arbonne dose have great stuff (from baby to adult) also essetial oils r safe (when pure) and effective. Its up to u to decide what u like and would do, so try doing a. little resurch at ur local natural food store or online for natural products.
Bag balm. I swear by it. My oldest is allergic to baby powder and dr gave us nystatin and his bottom started bleeding from severe rash. Put bag balm on it for 24 hrs and it was gone. I use it all the time now
I know it sounds strange but if u still have breast milk that will work better than any diaper cream 2 clear up rash cause all t antibodies. My midwife told me 2 try it when my daughter was a baby. Worked great, fast and compleatly safe.
What I use isn't actually a diaper cream, but when my toddler started getting horrible rashes from the stupid plastics that the training potties are made from, my mother gave me this cream called corona. It chines in a yellow jar with a red lid, and is actually used on horses when they get ripped up but I kid you not this kid had a rash so bad that nothing seemed to help and she was in so much pain she refused the potty. One application of that stuff, and the rash was visibly going away. Oh and yes it is safe for people! I'm not sure if they have it in stores but I've seen it online at Walmart.com for a decent price, or you can look at local feed stores. Odds are they'll have it! I just know after all I went through with my girl, I'll never go back to using any other ointment. The stuff was like a miracle for us!
I never used a cream. I rinsed my baby's bottom with water in the sink every time I changed a diaper. I did have one very fair baby, however, who would develop diaper rash. I bought a baby cream and she turned bright red and cried. Back to water. For the infrequent rash I used Desitin.
