DIY diaper creams that are safe for cloth diapers.
Making your own diaper cream gives you a lot of freedom to use what you’re comfortable putting on your baby’s body. Make sure to check with your pediatrician to make sure the ingredients are safe, and check out this helpful guide to Essential Oil safety.
Different diaper creams are going to have different benefits… some might be better for yeast and some might be better for a regular rash. I’ve found that many of the DIY creams are best for regular use, while I need to upgrade to “the big guns” (store bought stuff) for a bad rash.
