No one likes a rash.  No one likes repelling diapers.  So when your little one gets a rash or you simply want to prevent them what are you to use?

Most “regular” diaper rash creams are not cloth diaper safe.  This means that they create a barrier on the inner material and cause the diaper to repel instead of absorb moisture.

Thankfully, there are quite a few cloth diaper safe diaper rash creams available at most grocery stores.

Cloth diaper safe diaper rash creams: *ones I’ve used

*1) California Baby Diaper Rash Cream: can be purchased at most Target stores

2) Method Baby Diaper Cream: found at Target

3) Northern Essence Bum Butter Diaper Rash/Barrier Cream

*4) Angel Baby Bottom Balm

5) Avalon Baby Protective Ointment

*6) Grandma El’s

*7) MotherLove Diaper Rash and Thrush Ointment

*8) Bee All Natural Diaper Rash Salve

*9) Scarlet’s Naturals Hiney Honey Creme

*10) Thirsties Booty Love

*11) CJ’s BUTTer

There are a TON of WAHMs that also make great formulas for preventing and treating diaper rash and are cloth diaper safe.  Feel free to add your favorite and experiences with any of the ones I have listed.

I personally use the California Baby Diaper Rash Cream Grandma El’s or MotherLove Diaper Rash and Thrush ointment.  I don’t use it often but on the occasion that I do I have not encountered any repelling or staining issues.

UPDATE April 18, 2012: Currently I am using Scarlet’s Naturals Hiney Honey Creme or CJ’s BUTTer.  If I encounter a really nasty open sore I will use Burt’s Bees but I use a liner.
