Diaper rash creams and cloth diapers!

Diaper rash can be caused by a number of things most common are wetness, chaffing, new foods or infection (yeast). Time to reach for that diaper rash cream, but which one? Most commercial diaper creams are not cloth diaper safe, they contain certain ingredients  such as cod liver oil, waxes, and paraffin. These ingredients will create build up on the fibers of the diapers which will cause repelling (leaking). You might even get an unpleasant odor, after buildup has occurred. Luckily there are a couple of options AND cloth diaper safe cream available! You can even use some things that you might have in you own home!

Fancy Cloth Baby has created a new body line under their sister label Soapbox Holistics.

  • If you have commercial diaper cream on hand or an antibiotic cream your doctor has prescribed for your little one with yeast, your best options is to add a liner to your diaper. A liner is anything that will protect the diaper for example, an old cut up t-shirt, cloth wipe, wash cloth or disposable liners. For prefolds, Fancy Cloth Baby offers the "Stay Dry Snap Pouch" . Rinse off the ointment from liners before washing with your cloth diapers!

  • Cloth Diaper safe Home remedies include coconut oil (which has anti-yeast properties), or olive oil. Cleanse your baby's bum with a warm wash cloth, gently pat not rub. Letting your baby air out will speed up healing as well!
