Mybub gets far less nappy rash now than during our early disposable days but still gets a little every now and then. I am aware that most oinments/creams are bad for my stash (Peapods). What ones are you using?
Just wanting some advice?
I am in australia but can likely purchase online from where ever if need be.
Thanks :)

Hi Sheree, i'm in australia too- when my son gets a nappy rash all i do is use is sudocream and just put a nappy liner in so the cream doesnt get on the nappy.

Whipping it makes it super soft, super spreadable, and just generally easy and a nice consistency. We keep our coconut oil in the fridge as we use it for baking also, so it otherwise isn't overly workable.

I'm curious about the whipped coconut oil. What is the purpose of whipping it.

We use whipped coconut oil. You can whip up a batch at a time and leave it in a tub in the nursery. We also bathe regularly and give their bottoms some air dry time to help.

California Baby Calendula Cream is great! It has multi-uses, including diaper rash.

I use a butt spray that i got from a NZ store. its got antiseptic stuff in it and really helps to protect my sons bottom. i *think* its called botty spray or something :)

a&d sometimes won't come out of cloth very well, just to let you know. We used northern essence diapers salve and it works well on my baby now. I'm not sure if it would have worked on my sensitive skin son, but we'll see if we have another sensitive skin baby. :)

I'm also in Australia...I really like the Mustella Nappy Care Cream - a bit pricy but a little goes a long way and it works brilliantly. I just pop a biodegradable liner into the nappy when I use the cream.
