Ever since the Little Guy was itty bitty, he has struggled with diaper rash. And that rash has struck whether he wore disposable diapers or cloth diapers. The only thing that would help it to go away was store-bought butt balms. However, I didn’t appreciate many of the ingredients in those rash ointments, not to mention a vast majority of them weren’t cloth diaper safe (they caused the cloth diapers to repel–definitely don’t want that!). Which led me to using natural, cloth diaper safe rash creams. Which worked well, but they were quite a bit more expensive.
So, to combat his diaper rash and to keep within budget, plus to know exactly what was going onto my little boy’s bum, I decided to start making my own.
The recipe that I developed had quite a bit of research go into it. Here is a break down of the individual ingredients and the benefits of each (and why I put them in the rash cream):
This rash ointment is very simple, easy, and inexpensive to make. It is very healthful, full of all-natural ingredients, and, in my experience, very effective at healing up baby’s diaper rash (unfortunately, I can’t guarantee it’ll work on every baby as each one is different, so use at your own risk). Plus it is cloth diaper safe.
Oh, and before I delve into the recipe, here are a couple of diaper rash cream application tips:
