    As crazy as it sounds, different types of rashes call for different remedies on my baby. For scary food allergy rashes (we've experienced this twice) only Vaseline would do. For my-poop-has-no-smell-today rashes (you know, they pooped but you'd NEVER know it so bam- a rash appears!), only Desitin Original works super fast for me for those. I'm not surprised at the results though. Typically once you get a tube of anything, that stuff lasts forever… so the thought of shelling out the cash to "try" something else isn't worth it to me.

    I use Sudocream. It's great and clears it within a day!

    This doesn't have to do with diaper rash but I saw you have Weleda on your list. I tell everyone about the Pregnancy Body Oil by Weleda. "They" say stretchmarks are hereditary, right? My family (mom, sister, aunts, cousins) all have BAD stretchmarks. I thought for sure I would get them. I found this body oil and followed the directions, applying three times a day and I don't have a SINGLE stretchmark. Isn't that crazy? Everyone should know about this stuff.
