If you’re looking for a fast natural diaper rash remedy to help soothe your baby and stop the fussiness then you’ve come to the right place.
This topic is very close to my heart. I don’t like seeing my baby cry whether she cries of pain, discomfort or just because she wants a toy.
Knowing her in distress makes me anxious. I want her happy, healthy and comfortable at all times.
Diaper rash is something that I dread because I remember how her skin looked and how much she used to cry because of the severe irritation.
And yes some things you CAN’T CONTROL no matter how much you try.
So she did get the infamous diaper rash, even though I was doing things the same way: changing her diaper many times throughout the day and applying a ton of diaper cream.
How come she got the rash? Diarrhea!
My little one has sensitive skin to begin with. Ever since she was just a few weeks old she developed this drool rash around her lips. It became so stubborn that no matter what I used it would not heal.
I tried coconut oil, shea butter and even her diaper cream (at that point I was using Aquaphor). Aquaphor was not bad actually and I used it for a little while until of course things got out of control and the rash took over.
In the end, her drool rash solved on its own, but the 1 thing that made a bit of a change was constantly wiping her mouth with a dry cloth.
Going back to the diaper rash, I remember noticing this series of symptoms when she was around 4 months. I thought they were related to her teething (I may be wrong). She used to get:
- High fever
- Loss of appetite
Her diarrhea was extreme, it would go through her pants. One time it happened during the night and I had to change her and the bedding sheets 3 times.
It was an ordeal for her!
I was desperate and surprised that no cream or powder would improve her condition. I was buying diaper rash products constantly.
I took a picture of some of the creams that I still have left in my drawer, so you could better understand my struggle at that point.
Some days her rash would look better, and other days would worsen. I also tried using wet cloths to wipe her, because the doctor said the unscented sensitive wipes still contain some sort of chemicals.

The rash got worse when she started going to daycare. It was progressing day by day. I was running out of options. I even bought a burn relief cream.
But there was one cream that I completely ignored and I deeply regret doing that.
I could have fixed the issue way earlier and could have spared my baby from so much trouble and discomfort.
I finally gave it a try and bought Burt’s Bees Natural Diaper Rash Ointment. The best choice ever.
I remember I bought it after I picked her up from daycare that day and used it on her before bedtime.
Please believe her rash was almost gone, and I am saying almost because it took around 3 days for the skin to completely heal.
She NEVER got a rash ever since. It is the absolute best diaper cream and I recommend it from the bottom of my heart.
*TIP When you change the diaper, put the clean one underneath to avoid any mess.
