“They” tell you to write about the things you know! Your passion will show through and you will be able to captivate your audience with your words. Well readers – I am excited to write about something I know QUITE a bit about… diaper creme! These days, with two kids in diapers and one being a newborn, my day revolves around diapers, poop and simply just potty talk. Everyone in our house speaks “potty talk” fluently, which is understandable with so many little boys. We talk about it, we laugh about it – we live and breathe POTTY TALK! So I am excited to be able to talk “mommy potty talk” when I review cloth diapers and now diaper creme – it is the socially accepted version of what my kids talk about!
I was recently introduced to Dr. O’s Diaper Balm and was given a tube of the diaper creme to use and review. Now what are the chances of your children actually having a rash when you “need” them to have one?! Those pesky rashes always pop up when you least expect it or want it. I was “thrilled” though when Jansen (2) recently had a slight upset stomach from being sick and his bottom got all red and irritated. I seized the moment to slather his little bare tush in Dr. O’s Diaper Balm and then I sat back and waited to see what would happen…
Please let it be known that Jansen is 38 lbs, so he is no longer in cloth diapers. He wears Huggies disposable diapers. I did, however, contact the company inquiring if the balm is considered cloth diaper safe. The company stated that the balm is so thick that most of it will stay on the child’s skin, however some of it may wipe off onto the diaper. They therefore do recommend that you use a liner when using the diaper creme with cloth diapers. But this product is worth the brief inconvenience of using a liner. The creme is so effective that you will not have to add a liner to your routine for long.
So what happened with Jansen’s rash and skin irritation, you might ask! I know, this mommy-potty talk can really be a cliff hanger at times. I am excited to announce that Jansen’s little bottom cleared up after just two applications of Dr. O’s Diaper Balm. I slathered it on right before bed time and then again the next morning. By the time he was ready for a late-morning diaper change his bottom was clear and soft like – well, a baby’s bottom!
Let me summarize the reasons for my excitement over Dr. O’s Diaper Balm, yes, there is more than one reason:
- The ingredients in Dr. O’s Diaper Balm: Lanolin, cornstarch, sesame seed oil, soy lecithin, zinc oxide, and fragrance. That is IT! Six basic ingredients, nothing else, nothing hidden and nothing you can’t pronounce. If there is anything a new mom worries about it is exposing her delicate baby to chemicals and other unmentionables, but there is no concern of that with Dr. O’s Diaper Balm.
- The smell and texture of Dr. O’s Diaper Balm: I opened the tube of diaper creme as soon as I received it in the mail. I was immediately impressed by its thick consistency and the smell was rather pleasant. It did not make you feel like you were about to cover your baby in chemicals or worse yet, old lady perfume.
- The effectiveness of Dr. O’s Diaper Balm: Jansen’s skin irritation and redness was gone in two easy applications of the diaper creme. He has a tendency to have lingering redness once his skin has been exposed to a dirty diaper, but this time around we were able to clear everything quickly and efficiently.
Now the next natural question is, how can you get your hands on some of this diaper creme?
