Hello. My name is Beth Ann, and I have a problem. With diaper creams. All the diaper creams. And calling my diapers by their given names. But that’s a different post.
When I first found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to cloth diaper. I also knew that in order to cloth diaper, I had to use “cloth safe diaper cream” which is basically no zinc oxide. I thought this meant that I needed to search out every nook and cranny to find these little tubes of natural goodness, so I went a little crazy. I looked everywhere, and bought a LOT. We have so much that I have been forbidden to buy any more. If you’ve ever seen my cloth diaper stash, you would know that I don’t take “no” well, and I usually end up getting what I want anyway. Which leads me into today’s post. About diaper creams. Even though I have enough to cover all the tushies of the entire Navy, I still need to buy more.
We need to begin here today by talking about this packaging. LOOK at this packaging. I opened this and was immediately happy. Is it possible to get a package and not be happy though? The owner of this store, Tabatha, puts a lot of love and happiness into each of the products she makes, and you can see it through her unique and happy packaging and products. The names of her products are adorable too, she has fluff dust (bless my cloth diapering heart!) and bottom soother. How sweet do those sound? I wanted them in my stash simply because it’s fun to ask my husband to bring me some Fluff Dust from the changing table.
Unique to FBB is the great push up design of their diaper cream. Have you tried this in a diaper cream before? This makes it so you don’t actually have to touch your kid’s bum, which might be helpful if there is a bad rash. It’s also a great changing table toy for little wiggly babies. I love not having to wipe my hands off on my baby’s diaper before snapping it on. Wait, I’m not the only one that does that, right?! If you don’t do it, you should try!
I like to think that I’m a pro at cloth diaper creams. I’m pretty thoroughly obsessed with them. I’ve tried hundreds, and I keep about the same amount in my house at all times. I love the versatility of cloth safe cream. When my daughter wants to put extra on her knee, or if she tries to put it on her face I’m not worried about it getting in her mouth and hurting her. I let her put some on my son also (she loves putting it on his belly which results in giggles all around) and it’s okay to get it outside of the diaper area. My daughter also loves having diaper cream put on her bug bites. I’m not sure if this helps her at all, but she loves putting it on. She asks every single day for me to “put some stuff on it”. All of these products that Tabatha stocks are edible (although maybe not tasty) so you don’t have to worry about any toxicity in their tiny little systems.
If you’re in the market for a new diaper cream, I can’t recommend this one enough. It comes in some great scents, including Monkey Farts . . . which smells a lot better than you’d think it would based solely on first thought. Some other scents are blueberry tart, watermelon, and tea tree and lavender. I’ve smelled them all and I’m a fan of every last one! I think I like watermelon the best, most likely because it’s July. What a great summer smell!
Lastly, before I leave you with the links to find these wonderful products, here is the wonderful Bottom Soother with our friend Jules, the traveling genius. She loves diaper creams too.
