As a mom of two daughters under two, you’d think diaper rash is something I’d be a little too familiar with, but truth be told, my older daughter never struggled much with irritations in her diaper area, and she’s still blessed with a very healthy bottom. So that’s why I felt like such a newbie when my new daughter developed a nasty red diaper rash. As a second-time Mom, I was sort of expecting everything to feel a bit “been there, done that”, but my little one’s sore bum really sent me reeling, and I’d never needed to use a diaper ointment on my first, so I didn’t even know where to begin to look.
I don’t really have the luxury of spending ages in the drugstore aisles reading labels and comparison shopping for diaper creams, so I asked a bunch of girlfriends what they used. Well: if I asked four friends, I got four different answers! So I was back to square one. I really wanted a product that used all-natural ingredients, and one that was made by a company that had ethical standards as well. So I was thrilled to find a sample of Burt’s Bees Baby Bee diaper ointment along with the bath-time products I received for testing.
I was even happier to find this soothing diaper ointment is rich with vitamins A and E to help nourish and reconditions skin baby’s skin, while chamomile moisturizes and soothes. Sweet almond oil and beeswax, natural barriers, create an emollient layer to seal out wetness that can irritate baby’s delicate skin. I started using it at every diaper change and noticed results almost immediately. Now my baby’s bottom is healthy and smooth, she’s not in any more discomfort and everyone can rest a little easier.
