i bought burts bee's diaper cream because cod liver oil is not a listed ingredient but it is sticking to my diapers (BG's). is there something else i need to be looking for on the ingredients list???

my parents bought us California Baby Calendula cream because target was all out of the diaper cream...is the calendula cream CD safe?

i'd really like to try the Earth Mama Angel Baby but its so expensive and every time my son teethes, he gets a terrible butt rash.

If your looking for a great diaper cream for use with cloth diapers that will not harm your diapers. Use Bum Bum Balm. Its amazing and its all natural,so you can feel safe using it on any chaped areas. My son was 2 in July and its the only cream I use on him. I have even used it on my chaped skin on my hands and it smells oh so good... Its made by a company called Dimpleskins, if you go to there website they have an area where you can find a store near you that sells it... I found mine at the same store I get my cloth diapers at..... Good luck

Get the Magic Stick by Natural Baby Company. It is awesome, smells good, and it's in stick form so it's not messy. I use it to treat diaper rash (some people use stuff to prevent, but that seems like a waste of ointment) and it takes it away fast and every single time. I have had the one stick for 4 months now and still have most of it left. IT'S AWESOME!!!! And yes CD safe. NBC is the people that make GroVia.

you didn't tell me directly but i think i saw you posted something about cod liver oil on a cloth diaper related page on facebook... it really is okay, though so don't worry about it...the diapers that i tested the burts bees with were ones that were already due for a scrubbing because the desitin seeped through the disposable liners i used :( we're having a rough time lol

Hi Jennifer,
sorry to hear that. I think I was the one that told you about the cod liver oil. I'm sorry for not giving you more complete advice. Cod liver oil is the most common ingredient in diaper creams. Another common one is zinc oxide. Zinc oxide like cod liver oil also sticks to diapers. I just read online that Burt's Bee's has zinc oxide. I'm so sorry.

Here are some instructions for getting the Burts Bees out of your diapers: http://www.pootersdiapers.com/Remove-Dia...
