  1. I can't believe AVEENO diaper rash cream didn't make this list!!! It worked wonders for me, not on diaper rashes but on eczema for sure!-Desiree

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
