>So diaper rash with disposables is a vicious cycle. At least for us. The sposies cause it but we use them in order to slather diaper cream on him to clear it up. I’m well aware that most diaper creams cause repelling and staining and generally ruin cloth diapers.
I’ll tell you from experience that tissues do not work as an effective cloth diaper liner and that diaper creams do in fact stain cloth.
I tried cutting up an old flannel receiving blanket to use as liners and cloth wipes when using diaper cream (also so I easily knew which items to wash separately) but even that wasn’t 100% effective.
I also read that the zinc in these creams was drying & probably not the best thing for me to be using.
What I needed was a cloth safe diaper cream. While I got the low down I found several contenders. A few had similarly chuckle inducing names, reminiscent of butt baste. These were rump rub and magic stick. Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought more lil kim than lil bums.
I decided on the breathable barrier Grandma El’s and added it to the trusty wish list. I’m writing out of order, so if you’ve read in order, you already know that I ordered it.
I did receive it, and while I will write my full review later, it rocks.
