Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

Butt Paste hands down! DD had a horrible problem with rashes and i tried A&D, Destin and finally did the Butt Paste and within hours it was noticable better and by the next morning almost completely gone, they have an all natural version now, it's all i use. Turned on a few of my mommy friends to it and they swear by it now. Best stuff ever!

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

I'm allergic to Aloe, so I'm limited (can't use california baby products at all and can't use desitin, nor several of the versions of butt paste) in my choices. I like Aveeno (LOVE LOVE LOVE aveeno baby wash and also their baby shampoo) in general. I did buy some butt paste recently because I found a non-aloe version, but the smell of that stuff really bugs me... it says "pleasant odor" but it smells poop-like to me. Triple paste is OK, but I like aveeno better (I have several sample tubes of the triple paste). I generally just use A&D lotion on DD's bum and a lot of the time nothing at all, When I see redness, I usually just put some of the aveeno on. Especially when using certain brands of diapers that make her butt super-red (especially pampers swaddlers, which I'm phasing out).

Honestly, I feel like it's so much trial and error as far as this goes! I'm still sorta trying to use the lowest dose of zinc oxide that "works" while I can. I understand diaper rash gets worse when babies start to teeth so I've got others at home to be ready, but in general, I'm an aveeno mom.

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

the nurses in the NICU at Winthrop all recommended triple paste but Ollie still got a horrible rash while using it so we switched to butt paste and it cleared up right away

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

Honestly triple paste works great, but when it was really really bad I mixed Desitin and baby powder and that worked the best!!!

ETA: I use Desitin everyday (some say not to but I do) but I keep triple paste on hand in case I need it.

DS has only had 1 rash so far (he's about 21m) and all I ever used was aquaphor, A&D ointment, or desitin.

I mix Mylanta and aquaphor together and it is the best. The mylanta instantly soothes the rash and if DS was crying, he stopped the second I put it on.

A & D or Aquaphor. We've had 1 diaper rash in the past 2 years with 2 kids. It works great!

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

I HIGHLY recommend Burt's Bees! Not only does it smell DELICIOUS (which others do not!), but it prevented a diaper rash on my DD up until now, so far at 11 months! She had 1 bad one before I started using this and actually needed antibiotic cream to get rid of it, and I started to use BB right after and we never had a rash again!

Triple Paste for when it gets really red and Aquaphor every other time.

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

For DS I mostly usaed Desitin. However when he has a really bad rash we use Butt Paste.

Re: BTDT moms, which diaper rash cream do you prefer?

Triple Paste when its really bad, otherwise I use whatever they have in the big tub for every day. Currently we're using Butt Paste upstairs and Desitin downstairs.

I think the most important thing is to have a protective barrier between baby and the diaper. My DS only gets a rash when he's sick and going badly or when hes' on an antibiotic (which probiotics helps a lot with - Florastor, something to always keep in mind when your baby needs to be on antibiotics, best thing ever!!!). Those times I'll use the triple paste that the hospital gave me, not the same as what is over the counter. It is AWESOME. If you can, take it from there and let them order you another before you go home!!!
