Diapering with A&D (Fab Giveaway!)

Having a new baby in the house means running the gamut with all things diaper related… Especially since we’ve recently started Beau on solid foods. Full disclosure: As it turns out I’m even more uncomfortable writing about diapering issues than I am about talking about them, so this should be a treat for everyone.

I haven’t had too many issues with Beau (yet), but with Zoe there were times that her diaper rash got SO bad that we had to put her in a bath with baking soda and let her run naked for as long as possible. Dare I say it was more painful for me to try to treat her than it was for her to endure such a horrid circumstance. I felt absolutely awful… As though it was through some fault of my own that she was in that situation at all.

After a few serious episodes, I finally got smart and started using a strong ointment (A&D Zinc Oxide) to treat-which it did quickly, and one (A&D Original) to prevent as well. I’m not sure what the triggers were for her rashes-too much fruit or an antibiotic irritating her system, but I was definitely relieved when she cleared up fairly quickly. Neither of the ointments are overly pungent in smell, and they are both substantial enough (thick) that they will still work through the obvious variables, yet they also wash off without leaving any kind of gunky residue. It’s nice to know there’s something that will surely fix a very uncomfortable situation-which makes it worth it’s weight in gold in my book.

Let’s get to the giveaway, shall we?

  • I’ve never used anything other than A&D. My mom used it with me and my siblings and gave me tons of it when I had my first. And it’s been the only brand I buy. Also, taking a break from diapers helps. With number two I like put him on a pair of cotton underwear that will let his bottom breathe for a little while.


  • I too used A&D on my kiddos. My daughter spent 8 weeks in the NICU and I learned it from the amazing nurses who used it at every diaper change. Frequent diaper changes and running around naked seemed to work the best. She ran around naked–not me :)
    With a 3rd kid on the way, I know I should probably buy stock in A&D. Preventing the rash is the best 1st step…but as you introduce new foods, the red tush will emerge.
    Good luck mamas!! This mom stuff isn’t easy but it sure is wonderful.


  • Aquaphor works wonders!!


  • i only use A&D for my best remedy debbie jackson,

  • For me, I’ve always used Desitin and A+D overnight with my boys. Also, plain corn starch from the pantry works wonders! Thanks for the fab giveaway! nlevdan3 at yahoo dot com


  • We’ve sworn by A&D with both of our children.


  • I haven’t tried A+D. We use desitin.


  • I have used A& D ointment, Lansinoh, and good old breast milk to treat and prevent diaper rash. Luckily none of my kids have ever had it severe. I love this give away and could truly put it to use in a few weeks.


  • I always use Bordeauxs Butt Paste. I put it on and overnight the rash is gone.


  • I’ve used Triple Paste, my middle child, Ella used to get them so bad nothing would work, Triple Paste helped though.


  • My son developed a rash from yeast infection when he was only a month old. I didn’t know at that time that it was from the yeast infection. I treated it with everything possible, but the only thing that worked was prescription.
    For regular rashes though I’ve heard cloth diapers are a great solution


  • Each child has responded well to something different! We’ve had great luck with Hylands Diaper Ointment.


  • Butt paste does the trick every time!


  • love A&D not only for diaper rash, but also for the rash under his chin on and on his neck! Clears it right up!


  • All of A&D products are GREAT. My little man’s booty loves it too


  • A & D is an awesome diaper rash treatment and preventer. For really bad rash I like to use Triple Paste as that seems to clear up even the worse (bleeding) bottom!


  • I will be honest and say I have yet to try your products. I have used ‘Butt Paste’ since day 1 and never had a diaper rash to this day and my son is 18 months old. I wouldn’t mind trying your products since everyone swears by it. :)


  • Thanks for all the great products! We have two now and a third on the way and we will always be loyal to you guys! And, yes, their bums have always thanked us!


  • I always have used Desitin on my little one! Works wonders, clears his bums right up!


  • My mom, sisters and I only use A&D ointments because we’ve found that it works the best.


  • I love A&D. I use it for the baby, I used the ointment on all my tattoos, I just love it.


  • I use coconut oil as an everyday rash cream. It is all natural and smells great! When I need something stronger I use Bag Balm that is made for cow udders, lol. It works when nothing else will :)


  • Maalox and Benadryl. The Maalox neutralizes the acid from the poop and the Benadryl helps with the swelling and inflammation. It works great and a little bit goes a very long way. Just mix it up and dab it on with a cotton ball :D


  • virgin coconut oil ang olive oil works ;)


  • Always used A&D and Desitin with all the babies in all parts of the family for years. Great products. :o)


  • About to brand new to this whole diaper thing! Reading all the comments is definitely helpful – Can’t wait for my little guy to get here!


  • Browned flour.. almost a sure thing… right on the bottom gone quick..


  • I do Balmex with A&D on top of that. Works like a charm!


  • I’m a first time Mommy and would love to have this bag full of goodies for my little one in November :)


  • I have never heard of this, but it is good to know as a FTM I will need all the info I can get. Plus hopefully win the prize!


  • I love A&D we have used it on all 5 of our daughters. I have tired the others with my first one an nothing compares to A & D when it comes to performance, protection, or how easily it wipes off at a changing. With baby number 6 due in just 4 weeks, we have purchased our first tube for this baby as well :)


  • Aquaphor has always worked wonders on my son.


  • I always used coconut oil to prevent. Then my mother in law, :/, watched my baby for the weekend. She got a rash, and a&d cleared it up in a day!


  • Havimg a cloth diaper on the changing table and using that to dry her bum before putting on the diaper cream and diaper.


  • I express breastmilk and use it for diaper rash, small wounds and bites. :) WORKS EVERY TIME !


  • Oh how I would love to win this for our daughter that is due in August. I have had luck with A & D with my son and I hope that it works just as well with our daughter.


    • I don’t know why my comment is coming up as June 30th at 2:42 am because it’s June 29th at 10:45 pm.??


  • I have always used a & d. I have tried so many others, and they all fail miserably at keeping her rash free. Sometimes I use Lotramin to keep the yeast away, she has problems with that too. Can’t wait to be out of diapers, but we are expecting baby number 2 on Valentines day, so that won’t be for awhile. :) couldn’t be happier though.


  • Hello. I have always used A&D and Desitin. Right now in the potty training process with my lil girl is so hard and I know when my lil boy gets here any day I will still continue to use A&D and Desitin. I use one or the other when she starts to get a lil red and by the next change, it is gone.


  • I like A & D ointment because it has vitamin d in it which helps reduce the irritation.


  • If I know my son’s going to be warm and sweat a little, I always use a little bit of powder during diaper changes to help out! After, it depends on how bad the rash is.


  • We use Desitin to prevent it.. but to treat it we use anti-fungal cream!! It works like a charm!


  • I have always used a and d it works better then anything


  • I love A&D it works amazing for my daughter she is my first and i always put it on her to prevent any rashes from popping up! it works wonders she hasnt had any so far! :)


  • I’m a huge fan of A and D and Triple Paste.


  • Never tried any of these products but ive heard great things about them! Wouldnt mind trying :)


  • Butt paste and aveno lotion


  • First boudreaxs butt paste. New little one A&D. :)


  • We only use A + D and load her up overnight and when she is teething or trying new foods.


  • Luckily my Son has not had a diaper rash yet, he is 12 weeks old, but i have the A&D ready lol im a first time mommy, so i dont know from personal experience but it came highly recommended


  • Original A&D works wonders!!!


  • I’ve only ever used Desitin, but would love to try A&D. I would love to win this giveaway!


  • My son is 8 weeks and luckily hasn’t had a diaper rash yet, but we have A&D ready in the diaper bag. Just in case. :-)


  • I use A&D, lansinoh, breast milk and some air drying. Depends on the baby though.


  • A child with a diaper rash can be easily fixed by giving the child a baking soda bath or applying corn starch.


  • I used triple paste on my son.


  • I like to mix both the cream and the ointment together, I feel it works that way the best for my son.


  • My daughter hasn’t really had much diaper rash yet (fingers crossed that she won’t have it too bad in the future!) but we use Johnson’s Baby Powder as a preventative method frequently. Heat rash, on the other hand, she gets frequently around her neck and A&D ointment seems to help clear that up and prevent it as well. My mom always used A&D ointment on myself and my sister, so I know it’ll be the first thing that we try if/when Teagan gets diaper rash.


  • A&D works the best for my daughter’s diaper rash. And with baby number two on the way, that’s all I will use.


  • I’m actually waiting for my first to arrive, so I don’t have any real experience with diaper rash creams, but I do know many moms who swear by A&D!


  • Pure cornstarch from the cooking aisle.


  • I recently used triple paste and it was great took the rash right away!


  • I’m a first timer but my mom used Desitin with my sisters and it seemed to work okay. I’m going to do some trial by fire but it’s nice to see all the recommendations! It’ll save me some time.


  • I like A & D ointment because it has vitamin d in it which helps reduce the irritation. Plus it’s versitile, you can use it for many things like sweat rash and to prevent chaffing!


  • we were so lucky with my son and got a total of t diaper rashes with him and he is now 2. the only thing that helped him was the A&D ointment :)


  • Desitin and A&D have worked wonders for us! And who can forget Bouedraux’s Butt Paste??


  • I’ve used A&D for everything from bum rashes to healing the only tattoo I’ve ever gotten… It works wonders providing an excellent barrier… My first daughter used to get a lot of heat rashes in the summer, so I’d apply some A&D to the edges of the diaper around her legs to protect her sensitive skin and it helped her a lot. I love this stuff!


  • A&D is what I’ve always use…. it never fails!


  • I used A & D with my daughter and son. I plan on using it with my new baby as well, but honestly I hope I don’t have to. Babies are pitiful when they have a diaper rash.


  • Expecting Oct 10 could definetly use baby stuff, PICK ME..PICK ME!!!


  • I generally use A&D or butt butter. but i have used regular stick butter before. my mom and grandma swore by it and it actually did seem to work but was just very weird!! lol. with cloth diapering i dont have to worry too much about diaper rash though. :0)


  • i love the a and d


  • I always use A&D for diapers rashes and healing tattoos! It does wonders.


  • I actually used to use Desitin, but for me it never really got the job done. My twins pediatrician then recommended A&D and I have been using it ever since. It literally works like a charm. My twin son never used to get diaper rash, but my twin girl got them frequently and that was the only thing that truly healed it, quickly.


  • I only use A&D. I have also found that if the diaper is just wet, I usually do not wipe her down. I save the wipes for the messy diapers. I think wiping too much gives her a rash.


  • I trust A&D! Me and my husband even use it. Have a couple tubes in every bathroom and the baby room. So definitely gonna use it for baby #2!


  • We use mostly cloth diapers, but when diaper rash does pop up we use Earth Mama Angle baby. I also allow for diaper free time!


  • Breastmilk for sure!!! If A&D is not available :)


  • I use the Butt Paste, Destin, and A&D sometimes just one kind does not take care of the problem so I try another one.


  • Regular changes , periods of fresh air and of course a dab of a&d! always worked great for us!


  • Zinc oxide is the best! !! Used it for all my kids and will use for the one that is coming …. awesome awesome stuff ..


  • My favorite has always been the A&D nothing works like that stuff.


  • I love A&D! My best advice is prevention and that’s why I use A&D. The texture and smell is pleasant compared to others and great for everyday use.


  • Triple paste and naked time always worked on the worst rashes for us.


  • I usually use destitin or a&d only if there’s a rash and use corn starch in a shaker tor every change!’


  • Hello! I’ve been lucky. My one year old has NEVER and I mean never, had diaper rash…I change him when he needs it.. powder his bottom after every pee and cream his bottom after every poop. Preventitive measures go a long way :D could definatley use this prize!


  • we only use A&D on our 3 month old baby girl; love it!


  • My first son got lots of diaper rash and a&d always worked best. I plan on using it again when my second son arrives!!


  • I have only ever used A & D ointment on my tattoos! The only thing I will every use. For diaper rashes I use Jordan Essentials. Clears up my kids rashes over night. I am about to have my 4th child come october. I’d love the opportunity to win. Lord knows we could use all we can get. 4 kids under 4 years old is hard, but it has been rewarding thus far.


  • I’m a first time mom due in September, so I only have experience from babysitting my two nephews! We always used Desitin and A&D and I’ve ALWAYS been amazed at how well these worked! Happy to read everyone else’s reviews and advice! :)


  • When my baby had a severe diaper rash from a reaction to dairy the doctor told me to use bacitracin then lotrimin then cortisone then Desitin then A & D. My older daughter always said it looked like I was baking a cake! Lol. It worked like a charm with her severe diaper rash! I will always use that combo if it got that bad again! On a regular basis I love A & D!


  • I have always used A&D creamy. I’m expecting #2 and will use that for baby as well. Sometimes my 3 year old still asks for it!


  • AFTER TRYING TONS OF DIAPER RASH CREAMS FOR MY SON I FINALLY TRIED A&D AND FELL IN LOVE. IT WORKED WONDERS ON HIS DIAPER RASH. WHEN I HAD MY DAUGHTER I DIDNT EVEN HAVE TO THINK TWICE ABOUT WHICH DIAPER RASH CREAM TO BUY. I WENT RIGHT TO A&D AND WILL CONTINUE TO BUY IT WITH EACH OF MY FUTURE KIDS.


  • I’ve heard great things about coconut oil! Not due until November so no advice from me yet!


  • We have had the most success with the A&D brand. Even though our girls are now 16 and 10, both my husband and I STILL use A&D for skin irritations after many years of using it on our girls when they were babies!
    I am also currently pregnant with twins and I expect to use A&D for them as well. It’s prefect for the whole family.


  • We use a&d but sometimes leaving the diaper off has helped.


  • Hydrocortisone cream! Works like a charm!


  • I have been lucky to have 3 kids I never had to worry about diaper rash. If any of them ever showed signs of redness I would to stab on a little a&d. It worked wonders!!


  • Warm baths with baking soda naked time and a dab of diaper cream.


  • I love A&D I use it with my first baby and now expecting another baby, I will need a lot more.


  • We love A & D ointment, as a matter of fact my boyfriend took a
    couple tubes from our daughters baby shower because he also uses it to prevent chafing when playing sports. It truly does prevent rash and chafing.


  • When my kids get bad rashes, I use a mixture of corn starch and vasoline. Works great as well as the baking soda bath and air drying!! For everyday rashes, we use A&D.


  • A&D has been used in my family on all the babies plus we use it for the big kids scrapes and my cooking burns :-) Plus I have a newborn 2 weeks old could defintely use the the extra a&d and othe goodies!


  • A&D and Aquaphor! Giving their bottom some breathing time without the diaper always seems to help too.


  • We’ve had success with Desitin and A & D Ointment. Frequent diaper changes (so he is not wet for long) also helps. Finally, I have noticed he tends to get flare-ups when he eats a lot of acidic foods (i.e. pineapple, citrus, etc) so we try to vary the diet and limit quantities of items that upset the balance.


  • Definitely A&D! Love it! Perfect for rashes!


  • First baby is on the way and my momma has told me and bought me a tube of a&d ointment already !! Can’t wait to meet my precious boy and use all the best products!


  • I use A&D for babies bottom AND for other stuff too! It’s great stuff!


  • My husband and I are pregnant with our first miracle on the way. Being that we miscarried in Novemeber, we are are thankful to be blessed with this pregnancy. Looking forward to to using A&D (if we have too…sure we will) since I have heard nothing but good things about it.


  • A&D definately works, good stuff!:)


  • We use EarthMamaAngelBaby diaper rash ointment. It’s wonderful and cloth friendly! :-)


  • I have always used & loved A&D. Both of my children have had bad rashes due to having loose stools from being on antibiotics, so I have however used neosporin or 100% pure petroleum. I have even used a combination of A&D with pure Lanolin (used for breastfeeding) to make a thicker barrier.


  • My babybhas the first rash today :(… I definetly need to get these…


  • Would b great to win A&D workz wonderful and nobody wants their babys bottom sore =)


  • An oatmeal bath followed by A&D is all that works to clear up my son’s diaper rash when it gets angry red. We also love Baby Anti-Monkey Butt Diaper Rash Powder with Calamine for daily use and Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment when he’s a little pink.


  • I like A&D to help with daily prevention but once it flares up only Boudreauxs Butt Paste (Extra Strength) left overnight knocks out the rash. But since my little one has a pretty calm tushie we carry A&D around with us all the time.


  • I have 3 ways I deal with diaper rash. 1- fresh air. I lay an absorbent towel down and let the baby air out for a while. 2- Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and 3- Aqualox. It’s half Aquaphor and half Maalox.


  • My dad told me about how when people who had children back in the day would use water and baking soda to make a paste to put on diaper rashes to help dry it out. My daughter had a rash that just would not go away so I tried the old remedy my dad told me about. By nighttime, the redness from the diaper rash was gone. Within two days it was fully clear!!!!!


  • A&D is the best! I used it for my second baby and he has had no rash problems at all! I have also used Balmex but it didn’t come close!
    A&D all the way!
    Love, a very happy mom :)


  • I am a fan of good ol traditional bag balm! Even my pediatrician recommends it :)


  • I haven’t tried A&D, does it work better than Desitin?


  • I only use A&D on my son, tried other brands and didn’t seem to get the job done. Frequent diaper changes help keep rash away, also making sure area is well cleaned & patted dry before applying A&D helps.


  • A&D ointment with every diaper change, and when there is a little reddness then I use A&D with zinc . Never had a diaper rash.


  • Wonder cream
    1/2 A&D ointment
    1/4 lotrimin
    1/4 mylanta

    Works like a charm!


  • I am due at the end of July and I will definitely be using A&D!!


  • My son came home from the hospital with diaper rash that got worse over put first week home. As a first time mom, I rgiught I must be doing something wrong. After learning to relax, Triple Paste cleared it quick and Desitin is keeping it away!


  • I dont use diaper wipes. Just soft wash cloth with warm soapy water and alternate destin and a & d. Works wonders!


  • A + D Treat works like a charm! Plus, plenty of airing out and naked time. :)


  • Triple Paste wash and ointment if it is really severe. A&D at the beginning stages usually clears it right up though.


  • A&D is the best! Used it #1, will def be suing on #2 as well. This prize would come in way handy in February!


  • My little one gets really bad burning rashes from certain acidic foods. The worst is seeing her face turn red as she tries to be brave when I am wiping her bum and I know it is stinging like crazy because she is “clenching” her little buns together and quivering. It is the saddest thing! I learned a tip from a friend that I use all the time. When my baby gets a bad diaper rash and I don’t have sensitive wipes on hand I rinse the wipes first with warm water and it washes off whatever chemicals might sting her bum. Makes a HUGE difference for my little one! Then I mix any kind of cream on hand, like A + D, with pure vaseline and really cake it on there!


  • I loooooooooooovvvve A&D ointment..helps with my little guys eczema. I rub him down while breastfeeding. He loves it!


  • The best combination for both treating and preventing diaper rash has been white petroleum jelly mixed with zinc-oxide cream. First I clean the area with either sensitive wipes or just plain water and air dry by fanning. I know it’s hard to clean it well if the diaper rash is bad, but leaving anything behind makes it worse! Then I squeeze the petroleum jelly onto my fingers then the zinc-oxide (ensuring it is the first thing to touch a sore little tushie). The white petroleum jelly sort of “seals it in” and protects the zinc-oxide from both the diaper rubbing and any new moisture (urine). Has proven effective for us with two kids who’ve had horrific teething and antibiotic rashes as well as one travel related diaper rash that came from a 5 hour plane ride and landed my son in the ER.


  • put a good thick layer of a&d almost every diaper change! my little man gets irritated easily so it’s a mustmust! not sure how or why but I take every precaution to avoid it.


  • A&D works great for our DS. If we need more help the Mustelaproducts have always done the trick.


  • My daughters have sensitive skin so they were no strangers to diaper rash. A&D and Desitan was all I used to help keep the rash at bay. I’ve also used it even when there was no rash so that rashes were rare and far in between, thats always been my remedy. I’m currently 33 weeks pregnant with a boy and will definitely keep using what I’ve known to work best. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome giveaway!


  • I don’t have anything yet since this is my first baby but like to see what works for others. Thanks!!


  • I am a mother of 2 and am currenty 8 mths pregnant with my last baby. I have tried almost all diaper creams and ALWAYS come back to A&D! It is by far the best! And have stalked up on already for when this little guy gets here! :)


  • I LOVE A&D!!!!!!! I have never used anything different I have 3 kids. It is almost a “CureAll” in our house chapped cheeks, dry patches of skin we get out the A&D.


  • Aquaphor! It was always the go-to diaper rash cream in our house. Course, I’ve never tried A&D before ;)


  • I am due next month with my fourth and I having to start over with everything, would love to win this!!!


  • I love a&d. Its all that I have used on baby #3’s bottom.


  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE A&D diaper cream! Its the only cream I used 10 years ago on my son and now after all theese years I use it all the time on our little surprise bundle of joy! My Daughter has very sensitive skin and I have found that its the only kind that clears up the rash where even more expensive ones make it worse! Win or lose I will continue to use and recomend only A&D :)


  • I’ve never tried A&D, but we have used Desitin and it worked pretty well. Also, baby powder with each diaper change seems to help.


  • The only things ive used on my daughter was cornstarch nd a&d nd now with my newborn bby all im using is a&d.. i use it once and its gone.. i love it!


  • I came from a family of 14. I am number 13. I had 6 brothers 7 sisters. My mom used corn starch so when I had mine I used corn starch now my daughter is having her first baby Aug 10th and I will tell her to use it also. The others are great and do work but when you are young and short money it is something affordable.


  • I use desitin and butt paste!!


  • always used a&d at frequent diaper changes and baby lila has never had a rash!!!


  • I use a combination of A&D, and Aquiphor. The best remedy, ( but has the potential to be messy)? I let the baby/ toddler be diaper free for the day!


  • We’re Butt Paste people. It was the only rash cream we received at our baby shower and it works like a charm. My son had a bout of exema for a while and the butt paste helped sooth his skin until we could figure out what was going on. (apparently his skin does not agree with Target brand baby wash)


  • I love A&D!!! Especially because its cloth diaper friendly !!! :)


  • I’m a first time mom and although I’ve been around alot of kids from working in daycares to live in nannying I had to learn the hard way. I have used destin up untill latly. My daughters bodys gotten too used to it I think so I had to switch things up. A friend of mine had A&D and it did wonders I don’t really have other tips as I’m young and learning a lot as things come up but having this would help so much. my daughter deserves to be pain free. Thank you!


  • hi, my sons are 11 months apart… 1 & 2 yr old… and when they started to get their teeth the saliva was really thick or something that make them had really diaper rush… i used to gave them bath with water that was boiled with until i found Dr.Smith! i swear the first time u put it it works! at target is 6dllrs ar Walgreen s 10 no need prescription but u need to get it on the pharmacy… try it!


  • A&D works great! I normally gently wipe and air dry area with rash. Then I use desitin, applied to skin, and the A&D over that. Works wonders!


  • Changing diaper to keep skin dry to prevent diaper rash is number one. Adding a diaper rash ointment such as A & D is essential to relieve the pain for my baby.


  • Our boys, luckily, haven’t had bad diaper rash…maybe because we are so scared of it and make sure we change them frequently. At any signs of red we put A&D on and it has gone away by the next diaper change.


  • I use Bordeaux Butt Paste and my 9 month old responds pretty well to it. I have a new baby on the way due on Nov. 1st and Ive been eyeing A &D because I remember it working so well when I worked in daycare.


  • Don’t know why it’s posting as 6/30 @ 2:44 am… Sheesh I’d be in bed by then lol… It’s only 6/29 @ 10:52 pm here in RI… Meant to add this kit would be helpful with our new little addition coming in September.


  • I have always used A&D on my oldest daughter and she never got diaper rash! Still using it on her almost 3 years later at night. I am starting to use it now on my 4 month old daughter as she starts to sleep through the night and go longer and longer between diaper changes. It works great to protect their delicate skin!


  • My daughter, Piper, had a horrible diaper rash that almost looked like sunburn. The advice my doctor gave me was not to use wipes because they would hurt her little butt. Instead, she told me to use cotton balls with baby oil on them to clean Piper’s bottom. It worked! Another tip my mom gave me was to put a mini pad in the diaper to hold the diaper cream right on the skin because if the rash is bad, the cream might slip off.


  • A&D of course. But rashes were far and few in between because I used cloth mostly. I always made sure our son’s bum was clean and dry. There’s nothing like a wet, dirty environment in a diaper to cause those nasty rashes!!


  • This is my 1 st child, he’s almost a month, so I don’t have much experience with diaper rashes yet. Our pediatrician recommended a&d and aquaphor for dry skin areas, so we got both ;)


  • Egg whites whipped well.


  • When my lo has anything more than a little faint red skin, we only use a&d to treat her diaper rash. I remember the first time she had diaper rash, the other stuff just wasn’t cutting and the I remembered I had bought some A&D and her next diaper change was already showing signs of the rash going away. So now, when the bum is red, we grab the A&D.


  • I use Desitin Cream and it usually clears right up! I always put his diaper on him when his butt is completely dry so no moisture gets in.


  • I haven’t tried A & D, but I will since I haven’t really found anything I like yet.


  • This is my first baby but I always used a+d on my baby brown n cousin. When I baby sat them n it worked miracles n I would love to use it o. My own baby cus I know it would work on his rash when he gets one :).


  • I’ve used them all… my little guy has bad eczema and we have been using Aveeno everything with him for his super sensitive skin. Oatmeal baths are great for a bad rash, and I stay away from kids bubble bath and overly perfumed lotions/washes they irritate. Also, I found the color/designed diapers really bothered his bottom, so we stay away from those. We use thicker diapers that really pull moisture in, and coat with diaper cream. Like most moms, I try to prevent rashes as much as possible!


  • i would love to win this it will help me out alot iam this is my first baby andi need allthehelpi can get thank you for just letting me enter:)


  • Have used A&D and Desitin with all three of my girls!


  • I’ve tried almostt every cream available for my poor boy’s bottom. . . I do like how thick A&D goes on, and that the smell is not too strong/awful. My other favorite remedy is a bath with a backing soda/oa tmeal concoction my great hubby “invented.”


  • I used A&D as a preventative for my lil man. I love love love it!


  • Not only do the little ones use A&D in our home, sometimes the grown ups do too. Has never let us down…..


  • The best remedy I’ve ever used was breast milk! Just a few drops and it clears up diaper rash almost instantly. Unfortunately, my nursing days are behind me and when our little Layla got such bad diaper rash after a hot summer day that she was screaming in pain, nothing was working. We tried to treat it as naturally as possible and stumbled on a little trick- corn starch! Not the baby powder type, but just plain regular kitchen corn starch. Mixed with the A&d, it provided a moisture block while the A&D’s vitamins helped her poor little irritated skin. It cleared up in a day!


  • Nothing cures is like salt water, fresh air and sun!!!!


  • I never used anything but Desitin or A&D.


  • Luckily we have skated diaper rash.


  • A & D has worked wonders for my little girl.


  • I’ve yet to deal with diaper rash but its good to know about products like this. Great to read about these blogs and how helpful they are.


  • Desitin and/or A+D have usually worked for my little one. I try letting him air out, like Lisa suggested, but he always seems to tickle when we do!


  • I’ve always used desitin. It works wonders! When he starts to get a bit of a rash I will let him air dry during diaper changes. When he’s dry and ready for the new dipe, I slather a thick layer of desitin on his bum. I just make sure to keep him extra dry until his rash is gone!


  • My favorite for my little one’s bum is a mix of aquaphor and maalox! It works!! We also had a small battle with a yeast infection. The Doc recommended an Rx, and then informed me the 2 main ingredients were Clotrimazole and Zinc oxide….both over the counter… already had the zinc, so we bought the Clotrimazole, mixed them up and Viola!


  • My tried and true has been A&D ointment!! I have a teenager and used it when he was a baby. When pregnant with my 2nd child, 14 years late, I knew I would use A&D again ~ even with all of the new options out there since I had my first. Now with baby 3 on the way I still plan to make no changes. I babysat out of my home and one day a child I was watching broke out in a horrible rash due to something she had eaten. I wanted to cry with her it seemed to hurt so badly! I used A&D and remember promising her it would not hurt/burn. I passed on the info to her parents so they could use a wonderful ointment as well.


  • I only use a and d ointment, and aquaphor. My newborn, Caleb, has a happy bunny :)


  • We are newly pregnant with number two….this would be a huge help! Thanks for the consideration!


  • I haven’t had much opportunity to use A & D as my son doesn’t get diaper rashes often but I would love to be able to try it out. :)


  • We swore by A&D overnight for our first, and with our second we cloth diapered. Great advice!


  • Always used a&d… oldest child is 13 second is 9 and I’m prego with my last due in August … will continue to use the original a&d


  • Im a first time mommy and my baby girl got a really really bad rash when she was about 2 months nothing seem to work that I ended up taking her to the dr as an emercency walk in. they recommended me some medicine and since then when i notice some rash as lil as it might appear, A&D is there ointment is there. we also used the oitment for her face when the dr said it appeared to be eczema and it disappeared…


  • I am having ny first baby and have no idea at all on what to use for diaper rash and such… The chance of winning this is perfect!!!


  • BAby powder and desitin always work quickly for my little one. :)


  • My first son would get a bad rash due to excess acid in his system and I would have to mix up resinol medicated ointment and maalox.


  • A&D Is the best I have come across. My daughter is 6 that’s what I used on her and what i recommend to moms. It’s what I will be using with my boy on the way. Consistency is really the best way to get rid of a rash.


  • I go back and forth between Desitin, A&D, Butt Paste and Aquaphor. That and good old fashion airing his bum out. When he gets it bad I’m willing to try just about anything!


  • The best is to always put Aquaphor after all changes. But should a cleaning escape your attention for too long then my doc have me the best stuff ever it is called questrin. Kinda sandy but good stuff. If cant get prescription, then wash him with Aveeno soap dry well and expose to indirect sunlight (never eve ever expose to direct sunlight) like through a window for a little bit like 5 mins and give some belly time his peepee on diaper but without covering his bottom.


  • Hipoglos! Or as my husband likes to call it “Norway Cream”, because its most pungent ingredient is cod liver oil. It may smell like Norway (!), but it is seriously a miracle cream. I don’t know if it is available outside of Argentina, but if it is, TRY IT NOW. Your baby’s bum will thank you. :)


  • I’ve tried A&D and boudreaux’s butt paste on my baby. I love A&D (boudreaux’s is alright). It clears diaper rash really well. My daughter sleeps all night now. I use the A&D skin protectant on her every night so she won’t get diaper rash and she has not got it once when using this product!


  • I’ve tried several diaper rash creams on both my babies but a&d us worked wonders for me


  • I’ll be a first time mom in October so diaper rash will be all new to me. I will definitely keep this product in mind. An old remedy I heard that does work is cornstarch. I’m leaning more towards products like the one you wrote about though!! Time will tell. Wish me luck :)


  • We use A&D ointment not only for diaper rash, but also for minor cuts and chapped lips. It works great!


  • A&d with zinc!!! Love that stuff


  • I just had my first baby 5 weeks ago. My Sis in law introduced me to A+D and I love it. It is all I use on my newborn and I am extremely happy with it.


  • Bordeaux’s butt paste works really well and so does breastmilk! My son is just about 10 months old and was exclusively breastfeed until he was 6 months. He never had any red or rash until we started introducing side and at that point we would use breastmilk or Bordeaux’s! He had a tiny red on his bum tonight and he’s sleeping with Bordeaux’s on as we speak :). I have heard great things about A&D though, and would like to try it sometime :)


  • We use the trusty organic coconut oil because its both natural and safe to use with cloth diapers. Whenever we have a flair up one aplication and its cleared up.


  • everyone around me has always used desitin however it didnt work for my kids and i was out searching for something different, when i found A&D! I will never purchase desitin again. A&D works miracles! Thank You A&D my kids are rash free :)


  • I found that A&D diaper rash ointment is not only good for a baby diaper rash, but it is a wonderful, fast remedy for rubbing on mosquito bites and the dreaded poison ivy breakout!!!! Works way better than chamomile lotion! My first baby is due in September so I could really use these items! I know that I can definitely use the A&D cream!!!


  • I actually love A&D cream for my kiddos:)


  • Frequent diaper changes and bare bottoms work wonders.


  • When my peanut has a diaper rash I use A&D always! Love it! Diaper rash usually gone on less than 24 hours.


  • I have tried many different creams from destin to butt paste on my two kids. I like to use coupons and try out new things. It seemed like I had the best luck when I them a bath and let the rash air out of a bit, and then used an overnight treatment, usually A&D. With a third on the way, due early September, I will probably stick to my routine. Less is more sometimes. I’ve even been told breast milk helps, but have yet to try it.


  • I honestly haven’t tried any diaper rash creams. My daughter didn’t get rashes until I started adding solids. So now I use a vitamin barrier abs air dry before putting ob her diaper.


  • Ive found that coconut oil works thus far. Would love to try A&D. Didn’t even know they made diaper rash cream. :)


  • I have a 5 month old and bordeuxs butt paste seems to work really well for my tiny hiney :) I have used A&D and if in a pinch Vaseline always works :)


  • A&D is the way to go for a quick cure! From diapers to tattoo care, A&D does it all!


  • ugh i LOVE A&D so much! its so great :)


  • Best cure? A&D and some air out time!


  • I LOVE A & D!!! I have two munchkins and have used both of them the ointment and cream. They both work great and will continue buying them.


  • I’m still trying to find the best remedy for my daughter. This last rash was so bad she was bleeding and it didn’t clear up until I started using Aquaphor. I’ve used Desitin for most of her life, though. After she had her first yeast infection we were prescribed some concentration of Maylox, Aquaphor, and Eucerin. That has worked relatively well for a while. Her rashes get so bad, at this point I’m ready to try anything!


  • I have a almost 6 month old daughter she is my first and the love of my life!!! Makes my husband a little envious :) I won’t use anything but A&d píntame my Work hére first really bad diaper rash we tried every cream and soak out there but the combo of the 2 A&d ointments worked wonders along with naked time!! Now it’s only A&d for my little angel!!


  • We love A&D not inly does it work great on diaper rash but perfect
    For my lil ones ezema!!!


  • A huge A&D user but im also a fan o letting babies go without a diaper. I’m lucky only one room in my house has carpet so I’m not as scared of accidents!


  • A&d always clears my baby’s red Butt right up… especially since when she was a lil younger she always got constipated every 2 weeks and the ointment just helped sooth her lil butt


  • There have been some very painful gashes I’ve witnessed and I know this sounds odd but chamomile tea leaves mixed with Johnson’s & Johnson’s lotion has worked wonders…


  • I have 2 children, with my daughter i used aquaphor because that was the only thing that worked with her. I would use it and in 2 hours anything that she had was gone. With my son i tried Aquaphor but it just made his bottom worse and so i went to using desatin. again 2 hours and it was gone. A little bit of diaper rash cream and walking around the house naked works wonders. Oh and the right brand of diapers help to.


  • A&D! I spent tons on more expensive remedies but nothing has ever helped more than the A&D. I am due in 3 weeks with baby #2 and am already stocked up!


  • I love A&D it is the best product for baby bums. The only other thing I do is give them a break from the diapers. My kids love nakie time. :)


  • I’ve never used A&D, but this is my first child and she is only 3 weeks old. Would love to win such a great give away! Thanks for the opportunity!


  • I use A&D on my son (20 months old) & will use it on my new arrival (in Sept!). Great tip for bikini rash, rub A&D (any will do) on your bikini area after shaving to prevent & then if you start to get bumps. :) this is an awesome giveaway!


  • I always used A & D OINTMENT BECUZ IT’S GENTLY AND THE SMELL IS NOT OVERBEARING. AS A MOTHER OF 3 WITH ONE ON THA WAY IT’S ALSO ECONOMICAL. THANKS


  • I used desitin for the longest time, my daughter got diaper rash sooo bad once it was terrible, you could tell she was uncomfortable and the desitin wasn’t helping. Finally I found out she was lactose intolerant (we had to use formula because she wouldn’t latch on after having a tough labor and being stuck under the warmers). Once we switched to a lactose free formula I was able to get her bum under control. But I ended up switching to a&d, it’s the best, before that I would put her in a warm bath and then just wrap her up in a towel to be free!


  • We use cloth diapers, except for overnight, so I’m limited in what I can use during the day. Luckily rashes are very rare around here. I found a product online called Better Butt(er) Cream and it works wonders. If that doesn’t do the trick I use A&D at night with a disposable diaper and that clears it up.


  • I’m a new mom to my first child, she’s 6 weeks old. I’ve noticed when she gets irritated, I bathe her that night let her air off then put desitin & cornstarch on her. If I don’t use them together, it doesn’t work. Never used a&d on her yet, figured id wait til I ran out of desitin before I went & bought a&d ointment.


  • I use A&D – and put petroleum jelly over it :) Also – baking soda baths and corn starch then cream and jelly over top :)


  • We were given A & D at the hospital to put on both my boys circumcisions and I used it on their bottoms as well, only thing that didn’t make their diaper rashes worse!


  • The best thing is to try to avoid diaper rash by frequent diaper changes but as a mother of 3 I know things can get chaotic and sometimes diaper changes are forgotten :) So if that happens I just apply a little a&d the minute there bottom looks the slightest bit pink and that always clears it up :)


  • Berts bees Baby power followed by natural butt paste cream. And runnin naked.


  • I have trusted A&D ointment to my little ones sensitive skin…works wonders…smooth on after bath time at night and no skin chaffing occurs…not to mention my husband swears by it to keep himself chaf free while walking his mail route:)


  • We are expecting our first in September so I don’t have experience dealing with diaper rash but love reading all the suggestions . Thanks


  • I typically use desitin but I also use A&D. It really just depends on what I have at that moment. Currently A&D is in my diaper bag and desitin in my house. I also like to let their little bottoms get some air, that seems to help. If they are older I just put underwear on them for awhile.


  • Never used anything other than festoon overnight with my son. It was stronger than the regular, and cleared the rash up quick!


  • I have a 2 week old baby girl so we are still experimenting with everything to find what is best for her. This is such a great prize to win.


  • We used lanolin wipes to protect the skin on her bottom (after cleansing her slin)and let her sit without a diaper on. Luckily she has not had any major issues thus far.


  • If my little one ever gets a diaper rash, the only thing that works is A&D with aloe, caked on nicely, along with baby powder with aloe over top. I do this at night before bed and in the morning the rash is just about gone!! =)


  • Best diaper rash remedy? Let that booty air out! Add some cornstarch when a new diaper is needed and try and keep the babes dry.

    Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!


  • I found out early on with my first that A&D was the best, but I would also get Aveeno baths. It is a powder that you sprinkle in the tub and you dont use soap to wash the little one. It was amazing on his eczema too!
    Sara


  • I use a&d. And sometimes, if that doesn’t work, I let the baby run around without a diaper a few times a day and it clears right up. He rarely gets any sort of diaper rash.


  • We’ve used Bordeauxs Butt Paste to prevent on night time diapers and A&D to treat- it works wonders on a little red bottom!


  • The other day my 8month old son got diarrhea for the first time. This inevitably lead to a rash so i tried a little sample of Desitin that I had. Poor lil guy screamed and cried so bad that it made me cry. So I used some A+D Original ointment instead, he quieted down, and the rash was gone a couple of hours later. I’ve always used A+D for healing my tattoos and I knew it wouldn’t burn. Also, laying a cool wet cloth over babies bum seems to work wonders. :)


  • I hope I win. As a first timer this would help so much


  • We love aquaphor in our house!


  • A&D is great…baby powder can make a rash worse. For my daughter’s one rash she ever had as an infant, I kept her diaper changed frequently, cleaned her skin with pure water (no wipes or soap) and applied A&D ointment. I plan to use it again should my new little one (due in August) ever develop a rash!


  • A&D all the way baby!! We use it for more than just diaper rash; Psoriasis, burn cream, tatoos, dry,cracked skin, its even a REAL good treatment for summer feet (heels). Put A&D on your heels then socks on before bed! Worked great!


  • Mylanta! Used it first with the hand foot and mouth rash, but it has also worked since on everyday rashes!


  • I used cloth diapers. Made sure to rinse twice. In second rinse used 1 cup vinegar. Hung them outside to dry. Cornstarch instead of powder. Friends gave me Desitine for stubborn rash. Girls are easier than my son when it came to being naked. This too shall pass.


  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE A&D ointment! Works wonders.


  • We have used A&D or cornstarch on both of our children. Both work great !


  • My daughter has suffered from nappy rash since she was diagnosed as lactose intolerant. Sudocrem to do the mending and Vaseline to protect has been the only saviours for us. Not to mention more breathable nappies.


  • Luckily, we have had much trouble with diaper rash with Brighton. When she got it from her antibiotics, we had to use prescription Nystatin, but other than that we’ve only tried the target Up and Up brand of desitin. However, we are about to switch to cloth diapers, and I’m wondering which kinds of ointments or creams we will be able to use. Anyone know?


  • Expecting baby number two!! with my daughter i used a&d and when i would get tattoos years before :D i always had a tube of a&d to help the irritation love it and would love this!!


  • I’ve used A&D for my son 4 years ago and now my daughter. My daughter’s had a lot more bad bouts of rashes due to being on antibiotics and now teething. I usually will double up on the oitments..I use a combo of butt paste & A&D and then put cornstarch on it. Also, baking soda in the tub helps a lot too!


  • I am a first time mom so I haven’t had the opportunity to use diaper rash cream on my own children, but I have worked as a nanny and preschool teacher for years and the best cream I have found has to be A & D, hands down. I would have had a lot of cranky babies without it!


  • I had a friend and her husband brought some to the house it was winter a snowing and cold but he new my daughter had a bad diaper rash and I tryed everything ( I thought). I used it and haven’t used anything since. That was on my daughter who is 15 years old and I’m getting ready to have my 5 th child in Feb. 2013 and I will use it for him or her too. Thanks AD


  • I always kept an A & D in my changing area, disper bag, and one at grandmas to prevent those painful rashes.


  • A&D every time! Worked wonders on my first, and I hope it does again with this new baby due this winter!


  • One of the best remedies is air! Of course, no one wants to leave baby without a diaper for an extended period of time, so when you must put that diaper back on, make sure baby is clean and dry and protected with some A+D ointment.


  • I’m 22 weeks and sooo excited to meet my little boy. I have no idea which products to go for and I’m on a very tight budget so these items would be sooo helpful and amazing. God’s blessing me with a wonderful baby, and I couldn’t be any more grateful :)


  • I let my little one run around diaperless for a while to let his hiney dry out then dab some A&D on before diapering. Seems to work and he is so darn cute running around with his hiney out :) I have also found that alternating A&D with other types of diaper cream works.


  • The best solution for diaper rash is bag balm. Comes in a square-like tin container, although it is hard to find.


  • We used A&D with the first 3 kids, always had some for 5 years or more. 12 years later and planning the same for baby #4 (a boy!)


  • I love Butt Paste by Boudreaux!! It always helps!! :)


  • My midwife gave me some Sierra Sage Baby Balm. Besides stopping diaper rash, it also helped to wipe off the meconium when she was very newborn. :)


  • For diaper rash we wipe the area every diaper change with a warm wet cloth and then use a diaper rash cream. We use Penaten as that was what came recommended from a friend.


  • I use A&D daily on my baby as a preventative. One time she did get a rash and I used Triple Pastenand it was gone within 3 hours!


  • For my little man, nothing works better than old fashioned baby powder!


  • A&D is our first choice!! It has worked its magic since the nicu days with my twins!


  • My moms secret was a warm vinegar and water soak for 5 min then a little a&d to top it off (sometimes just letting the booty breath and not always in a diaper is a good remedy to :-) )


  • Buttpaste is great for minor rash and prevention. A&D and Desitin for more severe.
    If possible, having some diaper free time helps too! If you’re willing to risk the possible accidents!


  • Our best treatment has been to wash with warm water and mild soap at diaper changes. Then we go diaper less in the back yard for an hour.


  • Even before my son was born my mom insisted that I try A&D 1st. She had used it with my brother and I and swore by it. Glad I took her advise because my 10 month old has only had a diaper rash 1 time! I use it with almost every diaper change. Great product!


  • I use Desitin for my daughter but I would like to try A&D Since Desitin doesn’t spread very easily.


  • This is my first baby in my belly due in September… So I don’t have any rash remedies as of yet, but If I win I will!


  • A&D is what I live by with my son! Works every time in no time at all!!!


  • A&D and lots of diaper free playtime on towels!!


  • When my daughter was a baby i used butt paste it worked like magic!!!! I would be open to tryting new things but this took the rd away so fast i would tell everyone to use it


  • I use a&d and aveeno on my twins and it works great


  • Aveeno baby diaper rash cream is what i usually use for my boys, but i’d like to try something different as it the Aveeno doesn’t work as well for my younger son as it did for my older son.


  • We use Tender Tush from Young Living Essential Oils. My son’s skin is sensitive like mine so it’s the only thing we have found that oesn’t make what few rashes he gets any worse.


  • A & D is all that we use


  • With my first daughter I used A&D ointment for prevention of diaper rash, it worked well and helped not irritate her bum when wiping poo away. I had no idea they had a zinc oinment for the rash itself and since I am expecting daughter #2 in September I will surely be getting some! I am also a huge fan of coconut oil for it’s healing and various health properties and I made my own diaper cream from a recipe I got online and wrote down (works as hand lotion too, and is safe for use with cloth diapers) Plus it was SUPER easy to make: 1/8 cup coconut oil (extra virgin to keep the pure healing properties of the coconut oil in tact)
    1/4 cup raw shea butter (raw because then you know what you are getting- no additives and again keeps the healing propeties)
    3-4 Tablespoons talc-free cornstarch or arrowroot power (optional, to thicken) Combine coconut oil and shea butter in a small bowl with a hand mixer . If needed sften the shea butter just a bit over very low heat this may help to combine the two, easily done with with a mixer. Add cornstarch or arrowroot a tablespoon at a time until you achieve the desired thickness. It will resemble the thickness of frosting. :) Good luck with the rashes ladies!


  • Well, prevention is always easier than the cure, and I’ve learned what works like a charm for one child can make things worse for another. I use cream as a preventive measure at every change -weleda or triple paste, and A&D. If a rash is severe it is likely a fungal or yeast infection, or actually the result of a food allergy, all of which require special treatment and possibly diet changes.


  • I have been blessed to not have had too many problems with diaper rash with my lo, but when she does get it Bordeaux’s Butt Cream helps right away, and CJ’s BuTter helps prevent. I also use A & D original when we’re on the go because it coats so well while lo sits in her carseat.


  • As a mother of 4, I have used several things. I use Desitin, A&D oinment, butt paste and Udderly smooth cream. Some have worked better than others, but personally on my kids, the A&D ointment has worked best.


  • I use a mixture of breastmilk and fresh air. Baby’s skin absorbs the milk quickly and clears the rash up right away!


  • I absolutely love A&D products! I have used it on my lil sweet 7 month baby off and on for 7 months now! Her lil bum is so soft and smooth as it was since birth!! It is a wonderful preventative against diaper rash! Love it!


  • Six years ago when my first daughter was born I had no experience in babies, I found myself lost in cvs staring at all these different creams withva screaming baby, finally a mom saw the distress and offered advise A&d ointment. One of the 10 best advise


  • A&D is the only thing that works for my little ones. Tried a few different kinds but always go back.


  • I used A&D on my son. So far my daughter hasnt had rash but once teething starts I know she will get some so i have A&D ready.


  • I’ve tried different things. Currently my baby’s bum responds well to angel baby bottom balm. He’s very sensitive. I also like to apply a cold rag when area looks red. I know it’s rough for him but it helps the redness. Also cloth diapers are a lot better for babies private parts. Read up on it, google it.
    Xoxo


  • I always use A&D for my baby’s sore tushy! Works the best!


  • I am a new mommy and i fell in love with A&D almost immediately! I use it every other day with my daughter to prevent diaper rash and we haven’t had a scare yet after 4 months! I love the thickness of it, it really gets the job done!


  • Both my girls have sensitive skin and when they get a rash it gets bad fast and it’s very difficult to get rid of… I’ve tried EVERYTHING and the only thing that works for us is the Calendula Cream by California Baby.


  • A&D, some air drying, and a cloth diaper. Then I make note as to what probably caused the diaper and try to avoid that as much as possible!


  • Since I use cloth we rarely get a rash but when I do, pure lanolin is the answer. Solid or Lansinoh works miracles. Motherlove also works beautifully for minor irritations that pop up every so often.


  • Used A&D with my first. Now with my 2nd I use petroleum jelly after every diaper change. Only supple and sufficiently moisturized part of her eczema-riddled body aside from her face is — you guessed it — her bottom!


  • I like Aquaphor and A & D. Also frequent diaper changes.


  • I have no experience…yet! My daughter is due in a month so im pretty sure AD eill help heaps!!


  • We haven’t had to deal with many rashes yet but I’ve mostly use Aveeno and just at night. I try to leave the diaper off for a few minutes after each diaper change so as to help it stay dry.


  • My daughter had an awful diaper rash for weeks and we went to a dermatologist and everything. Finally we stopped using zinc based diaper rash cream and it worked. Now we just use petroleum jelly. It’s working great and a lot less expensive! Lanolin helped heal her sores though :( My poor baby!


  • I love a&d!!! So does my baby!!!


  • Baby powder prevents or helps! Diaper ointment in general is a good thing. I’ve been lucky to not experience that much diaper rash with my 16 month old girl.


  • I use Aveeno diaper and rash cream


  • My boyfriend loves a&d for his tattoos, and I love it for my eczema!

    the best treatment I’ve found has been to lay out my son on blanket outside completely naked. Air on his bum works great!


  • I am a first tune mother to a two month old and have found nothing weighs add good to get rid of diaper rash as well as a&e.g.


  • Wow! So many great products:) Makes me so excited to have this baby!!


  • A&D and washcloths dampened work perfectly in diaper rashes…wipes are a no-no with a rash!


  • Corn starch works wonders!!


  • A&D works for the rare diaper rash around this house.


  • Honestly, the very best thing I’ve tried that works every time without fail is good old air. My girls would get bleeding sores on their poor little tushies, and I would let their bottoms air out for 10 or so minutes without a diaper (watch out if you have expensive rugs or carpet! – I kept them on the tile floors) and then throw some baby powder on there before Iwraped them back up in a diaper. It usually cleared up the really bad rashes when the cremes would often make it worse.


  • I love A&D. Clears diaper rash up like a charm, great to help heal brand new tattoos, and awesome on minor burns. Thanks A&D


  • My daughter just got over a diaper rash. We dusted with corn starch and rinsed the soap out of the wipes. Baths and naked time helped too!!


  • We actually just started using a&d and it works better for us than butt paste did!


  • I am a new mommy to a 12 week old little boy. I have only had one issue with diaper rash. I noticed it in the morning so I got the A & D ointment and baby powder. It soothed my little man and calmed him immediately, and best of all the next day his rash was completely gone.


  • A good soak in the bathtub and some good ol’ A&D! My grandma used it on my mom and aunt and I use it on my boys. It’s a trusted and well used brand in our family:)


  • I use Bordeauxs Butt Paste, and natural organic diapers and cloth wipes when she gets a bad rash.


  • Babycenter is the best site ever for so much useful information! Thank you!


  • I really have been blessed. No diaper rash yet on my daughter yet,but if she should get it I know what I will be using! I hope my daughter win this!


  • Havent had a rash yet, knock on wood! My son is 11 weeks old and we are prepared for the worst with plenty of a&d!


  • I got A&D from a baby shower and that’s the only products I have used so far. My baby got a bad diaper rash last week and A&D worked great on him.


  • I’ve found that the best way to treat diaper rash is to prevent it from happening in the first place. We do frequent diaper changes, avoid irritating powders, lotions, and creams, and keep our son well hydrated (keeps his urine from being too alkaline or acidic). Also, using cloth or quality disposable diapers means less harsh chemicals next to his skin.


  • I use regular A&D after every bath, from working in a group home with adults I have learned the many benefits of A&D. Love it!


  • A&D all the way!!!!


  • I remember when my now four year old was a baby the big thing was Desitin. I used it when he was first born and it would just make the rash worse!!! He even developed little blisters! I called my mom, typical new mommy move, & she just about yelled at me. She told me the ONLY thing I should use is A&D. She made a good point that desitin, like other products, are creams and the urine just builds up. A&D on the other hand is an ointment and the urine just rolls right off. I ran to the store and bought some right away and with in the first diaper change my son’s “area” was doing much better! Thank you A&D and thank you to my momma! To this day (my son is 4) is he gets a little rash or something on his body I grab my handy dandy A&D.
    Lesson learned? A&D is a life saver and momma knows best!!!


  • I’ve used Triple Paste for my daughter to try and she liked it.


  • A&D ointment and as much air to the area as possible worked for both my boys. So far no rashes yet with our newest addition.


  • I let him run around naked to totally dry off and A & D creams. It also was recomended to me when I got my tatoo. The artist said it works the best to heal quicker, like on a babies bottom


  • My son got a bad rash when he was around a month old and my husband and I didn’t have the money to buy any medicine for him at the time so I used the breastfeeding ointment for sore nipples (I can’t remember what it’s called; the one in the purple tube) that I got from my baby shower. To my surpise it actually worked until we could get A&D.


  • My most trusted remedy is making my baby’s bum air dry for a little bit. After a bath, I don’t try to put on her diaper right away, especially if she has a diaper rash. I use Desitin Creamy on her. It smells greats and clears her up fast!


  • I like Triple Paste but I would totally try this A&D if I win.


  • I actually use A & D. Love the stuff. I also try yo let him go without a diaper for a while. The air helps. Thanks for hosting the giveaway


  • My first child, now 9, always got diaper rashes that turned into yeast infections! We used a lot of A&D and then prescriptions for the infections. We are now expecting our second in August (yes 9 years later)! We are very excited and anticipate using a lot of A&D again!


  • Best thing we’ve found is a soak in a warm bath and a make bottom for as long as possible. Then lots and lots of diaper cream!


  • With my first my mom had me using some powder type stuff in a pnk bottle that smelled medicated. With my second I haven’t used anything but A&D


  • I love A&D, my daughter got a bad rash when she was one, it was a life saver!


  • Breast milk does wonders but I maintain my littles behind with A&D, that’s what I use on a daily basis. I also love love love the smell of it, don’t ask me why, it smells mike yummy baby to me. Ocean water and some fresh ocean breeze on a naked booty does the trick!


  • My newborn baby girl has a sensitive bottom and is prone to diaper rashes. I’ve tried every ointment possible. A&D Ointment works wonders and has fought many diaper rash battles for my little angel. I would love to win this. Even if not, a&d is awesome and I would recodmend it to anyone that has yet to try it.


  • My son responded well to letting the skin breath before adding anything. After 5yrs I’m due in 8 days. Winning would be a welcome surprise.


  • This is my first baby and I receive what seems like a million tubes of desitin for my baby showers. I’ve got some butt paste and something else, then I’ve heard to use aquafor. Then I went to Canada to see family and bought some penetin (sp) cream per the recommendation of family. I am always looking for what experienced mommys suggest.


  • I have a new arrival coming in October and my friends and family swear by A& D and Im excited to be giving it a try because from all the great stories and reviews from everyone. I really wouldn’t chose another brand.


  • This is my first so I haven’t tried everything yet but I put breast milk on my sons bun. Seems to help. I would love to try this tho. Im not making enough milk to keep up.


  • I’m a first time Mom and have trusted A&D ointment. I put it on and over night the rash disappears. It definately works wonders!!!


  • I to love aquaphor. It was my go to preventive before I switched to cloth. Cloth has really been my answer. With cloth I like Burt’s Bees.


  • I have used all kinds of diaper rash cream and different things worked on each kid…it is weird how the different skin of each kid responds different to different things


  • I give my son an oatmeal bath and put baby powder on after the bath when I’m putting his diaper on.


  • I have tried alot of cremes but I would have to say nothing gives better results then A&D. My baby seems to feel more comfortable after I apply it.


  • We use butt aid. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. But with my son, he had a rash ALL the time. at least for the first year of his life. My daughter hasnt had any, luckily. But Butt aid is cheap, and it works sometimes. only other thing i have ever tried was desitin and it didnt do anything…would really love to try this stuff!!


  • Love the corn starch idea. I let my little guy run around naked.
    A&D and Butt Paste – I have alternated between the two.
    Couple more months of humid weather hope frequent diaper
    Changes will get us thru


  • I’m expecting my first baby in September so don’t have any stories to tell but I’m sure once he’s here, I will!!


  • My mother used corn startch for her kids as I remember it.


  • I am lucky enough that ryder has not had many diaper rashes (yet… knock on wood). At one point he had a fungal rash (I’m guessing yeast because he keeps having issues with it) and we had to pay $60 for a tub of 4 different creams. So, since spent so much money I mostly use that for any and all rashes. I also lay a towel infront of our sliding door and lay him down naked on it to let it dry itself out. I never really thought that a&d would work, but I might have to try it the next time he gets one.


  • Tried and true? Letting it air dry as long as possible and A & D it!!!


  • Have an amazing new baby girl – our first – and have not yet had to deal with diaper rash. But I do have a few different tubes on hand when needed!


  • I’m having my first coming up in September. But with my much younger brother, if nothing else worked, mom broke out the cornstarch.


  • As a first time mommy I had no idea what to do for the worst rashes,My remedy would be A&D I love how fast it works,and since I come from a hispanic backround my mother has always reccomended to put maizena yes cooking starch she has used it as an emergency talc type of thing. But other than that I rely on A&D


  • Momma’s milk worked wonders on my baby girl’s bum rash.


  • I keep my A &D prevention ointment and A&D zinc oxide together with my diapers and wipes. I apply the A&D prevention cream on my son on a daily basis and the A&D zinc oxide cream when my son has a diaper rash. It works wonders!!!!! Luv it!!!


  • A&D works great also pure coconut oil!


  • New Mom to be:)
    Generations we have used A&D
    Being a nanny for many years it has always done the trick!


  • When my son got a bad rash I put him in the bath with Avenno baby oatmeal bath and let him soak a good 15-20 mins. Then he got naked time. Following naked time I put on a good layer of the zinc oxide ointment before bed. During the day I put on the regular A&D and made sure to change him very often. I applied the zinc oxide formula again when he took his nap. His rash cleared up in a couple days. We now make sure to give him naked time after every bath, at bed time put on a layer of A&D, and I use it on extra hot days when he is sweaty to help stop moisture build up.


  • We use Boudreaux’s butt paste. It seems to work wonders for us.


  • I tried everything with my first son, and nothing worked but the Johnson & Johnson’s cornstarch powder!


  • I usually use Aveeno to help my 18 month old sons rash, but I also at times to help his rash heal faster let him run around naked outside to get some air and for relief so his butt feels better :).


  • I have tried everything! A&D has been wonderful! I also really like triple paste. Luckily both have taken care of all the diaper rash issues we’ve had. Now I am expecting again will continue to use these 2 products.


  • I use A&D, cool compresses, and corn starch baby powder.


  • We use coconut oil. Works wonders for babies bottom


  • We use A & D for our son. He has bad eczema and that seems to be one of the few things that truly work on his poor butt! My parents used it for us and when my mom told us to try it for our little one, we did!


  • Omg I love a&d! never used anything else and you can also use it on burns n scrapes as well!!!


  • I was given a an d by my sister who swears by it when I was pregnant with my first child. My baby was small all throughout pregnancy so it was great to know that I had my family looking out for me with al the necessities I need for my baby. Unfortunately my daughter has very sensitive skin so she was not able to keeo using this brand of paste. I now swear by butt paste only have to use it a few times before redness is gone. It’s great! Plus air drying is helpful. Cuddle with my baby with skin to skin contact. It helps her sore bottom heal an strengthens a bond between the two of us!!


  • My little one is almost 3 weeks old and we use Palmer’s bottom butter. :)


  • When my daughter was a baby we could use Desitin. If the rash was really bad I would put mylanta on her bum & let it dry. Then let her run around for a bit naked. Now my son on the other hand uses A & D so that’s what I buy for him.


  • A+D and also equal parts of calamine lotion, zinc oxide and petroleum jelly. They each work great !!


  • My daughter has always responded well to A&D as well as Bordeauxs Butt Paste. We have had great luck with both products. She has only really had one really bad rash and that was actually caused by yeast. This would be a great gift as we have a new little one being added to the family next week :)


  • I’m expecting my first baby..and a ton of my friends who have children have used A&D and says that it works wonders and I would love to have this myself. It has alot of cool points with me and I know that it would be a great product to have in my home and use on my child.


  • I’ve used Bordeaux’s Butt Paste with both of my kids and it always clears the diaper rash up quickly!


  • I love Dr Browns for diaper rash, as it doesnt seem to sting my baby boy when his rash is bad. However, Ive never tried A&D, ILl have to check it out. I also let my boy run naken in the back yard to give his tush some air when hes teething and when weve had bad spells with rashes, hes wears a size bigger diaper at night. All seem to work. Hoping that my next (due in Sept) doesnt have too much trouble with rashes, but if she does, well try all the same things and maybe add A&D into the mix. We would love to try out this diapering gift package. *fingers crossed*.


  • I love Triple Paste!!! It is awesome. It can be a little pricey but it is well worth it. I always have some A&D in the house as well!


  • Usually to get rid of diaper rashes I load my LO up on probiotics and always use rash ointment and powder! I have used numerous different ointments but not A&D yet! We have a rash right now that’s been really hard to kick from some strong antibiotics! I have used 3 differnt ointments so far and although we have had some great progress, it’s not healed yet! I would love to win these goodies to try the A&D ointment!


  • I use A&D at the first sign of redness and my lil one has yet to have a rash*knock on wood*. I keep him changed regularly, use cottonballs dip in a little water instead of wipes and wash his area between baths. Sometimes a lil naked time just to air out and he loves it lol


  • I use A&D and Desitin. My LO is only 3 months old and so far no rashes :) I like to let her air out for a few minutes as well, I find letting her be totally dry before putting anything on helps out a ton!


  • I would never stray away from the always trusted A&D! If my son shows any signs of diaper rash coming on, I use a little A&D and almost always the rash is gone by the next diaper change. It works wonders! We will be using it on our 2nd child as well, due to arrive August 12!


  • My most trusted diaper rash remedy will always be .. Original A&D ointment and ARGO cornstarch that has been refrigerated ! This is great and works everytime !!


  • My son has such a sesitive tush especially when he was born we tried everything different diapers, wipes, creams, I mean everything we ended up using cloth rags and A&D that worked the best but it had to be yellow or the blue and white kind desitin was too strong for him plus we use a special cram for sensitive skin.. Not so bad to use rags at home but when your out and about kind of a pain ya know! But he is defenitley worth it and 100 times more dont know what i would do with out him love him so much.


  • We have used Desitin and Pinxaav. Never tried A & D, but after reading this I think I’ll give it a try!


  • With first DD, we used destin. With second DD, we started using A&D, and will continue to use it!


  • I use breast milk on my lil ones buns as much as I can since it seems to help more then the”butt paste” we have. I would love to try a&e !


  • A&D gives very comfortable feel to my baby from day 1.As a mother I am very happy to see smile on my baby face.


  • Desitin worked sometimes for me. I just recently discovered that my daughters rashes were due to the detergent I was her diapers in so my diaper rash remedy is changing my laundry detergent so I am now making my own detergent.


  • A&D is the only cream that works on my baby for fast releif! I never knew they made a cream to treat and when I discovered it I was overjoyed!


  • This will be our first & I’ve heard lots of feed back but I’ve mostly been told to use A&D or Destin. Excited to see which will work best when our little one arrives around Thanksgiving.


  • Coconut oil has worked wonders on my baby’s bum (:


  • I usually use triple paste, but on bad rashes I mix liquid maalox and aquaphor in a good paste consistency. It works really well.


  • My mom swore by A&D from when I was born so when I gave birth to my first child this past April my mom gave me a beautiful necessities basket filled with A&D, diapers and bath needs for my son. I’ve used A&D with every diaper change as a preventative for diaper rash and to keep his skin soft. Thank you for making a product that actually works! Even if I didn’t win, I still will continue to use your products and recommend to friends. Thank you for being such an awesome brand to rely on :)


  • I used A&D with my first baby 10 years ago and will be using it on baby #2 who is due this October :-)


  • I am 3 weeks from my due date with my 3rd child, i have already bought my A&D ointment lol. Its always good to be prepared and it hasnt let me down yet. I’ve tried the others and never was satisfied, it always seemed to be to pasty or to thin. I stand by A&D, i still plan to use it even though i recieved many others at my baby shower.


  • A&D is what I used with my first child (15 years ago) and I also have three tattoos and used it with all of them and I get great complements on how bright they are.


  • Desitin allways, clears it right up


  • Air drying is best, but sometime you just have to use ointment!


  • A&D works! I have two small children and a third on the way. My oldest had rashes many times until she was about 14 months due to urinary reflux so we have been through many, many creams and paste. A&D actually stays on vs. others. Other then using cream, cornstarch is okay and of course letting them run around naked works-helps with drying their bums out and they love it. :)


  • A & D and desitin!


  • A&D works wonders. Not to mention, it’s a great remedy for healing tattoos too. I also like A&D with a combination of Johnson’s cornstarch baby powder for diaper rashes.


  • My daughter got a pretty bad diaper rash a few months ago….I’m hoping it doesn’t happen again! A&D works great!


  • I have used everything on my three kids, so far the best peoducts I have found are A&D and Desitin. I also like to use corn starch and nakey baby time, works wonders.
    I have baby # 4 due in oct. I should start stocking up and rash remedies I am sure as I still have 2 in diapers now.


  • I’ve always used A&D for mosquito bites, but definitely plan to use it for my little one and my first, due in just 4 weeks! Its a brand that all the moms in my family swear by to keep little baby butts rash-free! BTW, works great on the mosquito bites too!


  • I’ve been using Destetin (and store brand alternatives) this far, but none of them helped get rid of her diaper rash when she got it bad one time. It took almost a week to clear up. So I would love to try this for a change .


  • I like California Baby diaper area wash- it seems to just give a cooling, refreshing feeling. Then I use desitin over night and it seems to go away!


  • I love A&D for prevention. I use it at night and anytime we are out and about and I know it may take me a couple minutes to find somewhere to change my lil darling. I also use warm water on a wash cloth instead of wipes at home. I always let her bottom air dry before putting a diaper back on and I give her 10-15 minutes each day or longer if I can! I am a nurse and A&D is by fsr a great barrier cream.


  • Luckily we haven’t had any diaper rash issues but we have butt paste and a&d on hand


  • So far we’ve been lucky, the rashes haven’t been too bad for our 3 month old. Aveeno has done the trick.


  • If my baby’s bottom starts looking irritated, I try to let her “air out” for about ten minutes after each diaper change. When I put on a new diaper I add some a&d ointment to her bottom and I don’t let her sit in a wet or soiled diaper :) thank you for making great products.


  • I found with my second baby triple paste is the best for bad diaper rash.


  • Use A&D with my son it works wonders. The minute any rash starts forming it clears it right up.


  • I use A&D cream plus corn starch baby powder and it works great!


  • I too use A + D on my LO and swear by it!


  • A&D ointment is the only diaper cream that works on my daughter and keeps her rash-free. We’ve tried them all… I’d love to win this package!


  • I have always used A&D on my tattoos and it works great! I’ll be using it on
    my little ones bum too!


  • i have used A&D but i prefer corn starch either the johnsons brand or right from my cabinet


  • I have heard good things about KIEHLS baby ‘diaper rash’ cream as well as plain old baby powder. I am expecting my first, so any tips & reviews I can get, really come in handy!


  • I use the equate diaper rash creme and it is as good as desitin :)


  • I use Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and let them go naked a few times a day for a few minutes.


  • I love A&D I keep one in my diaper bag and one in my Sons room.
    I Got lots of it on my baby shower and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna use it for my
    Little girl who should be born this winter. =)
    Thanks for creating such an awesome diaper rash cream..!


  • Love A&D!! Also, warm bath with baking soda. Finally, be sure bum dry before putting on the diaper cream.


  • With my first I always used desitin, or just vasoline. My second child has never gotten a diaper rash.. I know, lucky right? We’ll see what happens with my third come October!


  • A&D works great! For my oldest daughter I used it for rash, did frequent diaper changes and let her be nakedas much as possible! We haven’t had sny rashes yet with our 5 month old but will use the same strategy!


  • For me and my little boy all we use is a&d and a little fresh air. There are times I’ll even use it for rashes on myself or my husband. It dries it up and heals it almost overnight.


  • My son responded well to Balmex. Finally cleared up a rash he had for nearly two months. He also went diaper free part of the day.


  • A&d all the way. Great for adult chaffing as well.


  • A & D is the best! I’ve used it since my daughter was born. She’s 22 mths now and I recently had a baby boy. I plan to use it on him as well.


  • I have four older sisters and every one of them recommended A&D. Im the last to have a baby and she is four months old. As precautionary, I put just a little On before bed and she’s never had rash, ever! I’m a SAHM and own a large jar of A&d.


  • We use cloth diapers so we use cloth diaper safe cream (CJs butter) unless he has a really bad rash. A&D zinc works great on stubborn rashes. My husband even uses it on his heat rashes!


  • My little guy arrives next week but my girlfriend swears by avoiding wipes while her little one was very young. Instead of wipes, she used warm water and essentially gave her a little wash after every time. She never had diaper rash and once she hit about five moths, she started using homemade wipes without any harsh chemicals. I hope to do the same if I have enough patience!


  • My mom used Desitin on me when I was a child and it worked so well! It’s what I plan on using for my baby girl due in August.


  • This will be my first baby so I don’t have personal expierence with a brand, but my mom has always sworn by A&D brand and it was what she used on my sister and I.


  • Hylands rocks with kids ranging from 7 months to 20 im always finding out new better products .hylands is number 1


  • The smell of A&D ointment makes me totally nostalgic


  • I used to be a pharmacy technician and mixed up what’s called “Boudreaux’s butt paste” all the time. It works wonders! I have other mommy friends who swear by it! It’s also available to buy OTC in stores but many doctors also write it out as an Rx and the pharmacy whips the ingredients together all by themselves. ;) Quite fun, actually. Makes you feel like a scientist!


  • Since we’re goin through a bad spell right now (boo to teething) I was recommended by my doc to put a layer of regular A&D over the max strength desitin (40% zic oxide). So far so good!


  • I am a first time mom myself, and have personally only used Butt paste which has worked wonders for my baby boy. He hasn’t had it terribly bad yet, thank goodness, but I agree that different things work with each baby. Bordeauxs butt paste just so happens to be the one for my baby.


  • My baby boo will get a rash if I don’t put cream on during every diaper change. I feel like I’ve tried just about everything out there, and A&D seems to be the best! They both smell pretty good, and it’s not super strongly scented like the others.. I got tired of smelling desitin all the time!


  • I always use A&D I love it I tell all my friends about it and I always buy it for a baby shower gift it’s deff something everyone should have and know about when u have a baby i love love love A&D and so does my son


  • Such a great giveaway! I can’t wait to try it all!!!!!!!!!


  • I’ve used A&D, Bordeauxs Butt Paste, Desitin and Aquaphor. Every child reacts differently to the different kinds of creams. I know each one of the ones I’ve listed has helped in some shape or form!!


  • I tend to buy whatever I have a coupon for, although my son doesn’t seem to do as well with Butt Paste as my daughter did. I have had to give my son a bath in baking soda and let him run around nakey for as long as possible when he had a terrible diaper rash.


  • I love A&D its the onlything i use on my babies…Baby #4 is slow cooking and will be ready in 4 months and I KNOW i will be using A&D on him. I have an 8yr old, 7yr old and 8m old who all use it. *shhhh dont tell my boys i told you but even now when they get a little chaffy they ask “Mom do you have the rash cream?” So they are still using it :) WORKS GREAT ON TATTOOS TOO


  • Sweet! Love the covers.


  • Breast feeding is best but it also makes your little one go all the time:-) Thankful for A&D for my little mans sensitive bum:-)


  • My daughter hasn’t struggled much w/ diaper rash, but I was given a tube of zinc oxide ointment from a family member that said it did wonders on her daughters. I have used it from time to time when diaper rash creeps up, and it does seem to do the trick. It also “dries the oozing and weeping of poison ivy poison oak, and poison sumac.” So, that’s an added plus:)


  • First baby, 7 weeks today and got A&D as a gift at my baby shower. Can’t say that I can’t wait to use it but I’ll definitely give it a try once that time comes! I do gotta say that the regular ointment works great on hubby’s fresh tattoos!


  • We use A&D and it works great!


  • Desitin rapid relief, Vaseline, and a kiss. My little girl never has diaper rash or chafing.


  • I have 3 children and each one it was different. The diaper rashes started after introducing foods. My first one (a girl) had to have Gold Bond Medicated powder prescibed by her pediatrician. My second one (also a girl) the Bodroues Butt paste and now my
    third one (a boy, finally) has to have the A&D overnight cream. He seems to be the most sensitive one. Oh, how things change as kids grow. He is a special gift to us. He came 11 weeks early and was born on our oldests birthday. He spent 5 weeks in the NICU. I had preclampsia, placenta previa, and HELLP syndrome and my liver failing and body shutting down.
    We would be tickled if we won this giveaway.


  • im a soon to-be new mom myself but while working in the baby dept of a well known retailer i always had to restock the A+D cream…seems thats one of every moms favorites!


  • My most trusted diaper rash remedy is A & D and breastmilk. My son only got a small rash when he started solids. This stuff works wonders! ;)


  • I’ve always used A&D. My fourth boy was born 4 weeks ago and I made sure to have a new tube ready to go!


  • The best remedy, is a nice clean, dry diaper and some A & D. I haven’t had to use it yet with my son. He has yet to get diaper rash, and I hope he never does, but I have seen it clear up some bad ones!


  • A&D has always worked really well for us. My older daughter only got a *really* bad rash maybe two or three times, and in that situation, the only thing that cleared it up was Pinxav. Oh, and cornstarch! :)


  • I started using A&D or Aquafor on recommendation of a friend and will never use anything else


  • We use A&D, as well as regular old petroleum jelly. We have been lucky thus far with our little one and her bottom.


  • I have always used A&D and Triple Paste to cure diaper rash with all three kids, 4, 1, and 7 weeks.


  • We have also always used A & D. When my first child was born, my mother bought me a tub of the stuff. I never had to use anything else, with the exception of my excursion into cloth diapering.


  • Each of my kids were different. I used Desitin on one, A&D on another and cornstarch on the other. It really depends on the skin type your child has.


  • A&D ointment! It has worked each and every time!


  • For bad diaper rashes, Triple Paste is amazing! Otherwise, just keeping up on diaper changes and paying attention when she does her “poop face” usually works for us. :)


  • I have always loved A&D ointment for my kids. It’s almost like they never had a diaper rash. Now that I have another little one, it’s the only thing I use on his tiny little tushy! I love the smell of a fresh diaper change because I love the smell of the A&D ointment on his clean tushy! Lol! :) It’s also great for almost everything else medical related. I know someone who swears by it when her vulvavestibulitus flares up. Just don’t use it on your vaginal area if you are trying to conceive. It kills the sperm, unfortunately. :(


  • I’ve had great results with Penaten products and cornstarch to soothe and prevent diaper rashes. I would LOVE to win this great prize! It would be so helpful with my 5 month old baby girl and my potty training 2 year old boy!


  • Love A&D ointment! I use it on all of my children no matter their age. It is great for all skin irritations. To help avoid diaper rash though I give my baby lots of airing out. She loves to lay naked on her changing table. Helps to keep her dry and rash free!


  • I only use A&D on my babe! And with #2 on the way I am already stocking up on more!


  • I’m a new mommy (1 month today) and the best thing that has helped us is A&D! I work in healthcare and we’ve always used it at our facility. So I knew it was a lifesaver before mommy hood.


  • From the circumcision on my 2 month old baby boy to preventing diaper rash A&D has worked wonders. Addition to the bandage wond from my c section. I am a new mommy so ive heard many suggestions and now i have my own A&D works everytime. Theres my call now


  • My daughter never really got diaper rashes, but when she did, I used A&D diaper rash cream. A little bit goes a long way and it works so fast!


  • Hope I win, I could always use more cream and wipees!!


  • We use A&D to prevent the rashes, but when my son does get one we use Desitin rapid relief until it’s gone.


  • I used so many! Oatmeal baths followed by A&D or Desitin. If it’s a worse rash ie. yeast-like Nystatin clears it up in less than 24 hrs (prescription only)


  • I check her diaper often and make sure I change her every 3 hours and if she has any redness I put diaper rash cream on her. I try not to give her to much to drink close to bedtime. She had a bad rash once and I did a baking soda bath with cool water because too warm of water can further irrate the rash.


  • A&D is all we use around our precious babys bottom! We use it every diaper change!


  • Im a mother to a very active two year old and can honestly say I never used A&D. I only received Desitine samples when I was pregnant with him and it simply worked well. The only time I ever seen A&D was when my extended family used it on tattoos… So I never thought to try it on my little angels tushy. I’m currently pregnant with my second child and im sure I would try A&D given the chance with samples. Plus high five on such an awesome give away I also used the “airing out” trick often too (as my hubby would call it). I used cloth diapers on my son for the first 3 months so we gave him plenty of nude tushy time between each changing to keep him rash free.


  • To be totally honest I can’t remember! Lol it’s been ten years since my first born and we just finally got pregnant (6 months now) with our 2nd :))) but reading everyone’s responses have definitely been helpful… Thanks all!


  • I use a&d for every day in between diaper changes..when it gets bad I soak him in a tub of baking soda, let him have some nakey time to get some air on his bottom and cake him in desitin or A&D creamy :)


  • I’ve been using A&D for my daughter since birth. I would love to win since I’ve never won anything before…


  • A&D is one of the best but I also love using cholendula(spelling?) bexausevitsvgreat for any type of skin irritation.


  • My daughter was allergic to most diapers and she used to get tgese horrible rashes so I used cold cornstarch ans I used to give her showets in chamomille tea. So now with my 2month son I use baby powder but if he gets a,ras A& D,always helps


  • Neosporin.
    We’ve tried so many diaper rash creams that I’ve lost count. None of them worked, so I suppose my brain doesn’t deem that information worthy enough to keep tabs on. When my daughter started teething and got a particularly bad diaper rash, my mom suggested I give her a bath, rub Neosporin all over the affected area, and keep her diaper off for as long as I felt safe doing. Lo and behold, it actually worked! I swear by the stuff now and always keep it on hand.


  • Lots of naked time for our baby!! That’s the best thing for his diaper rashes. He doesn’t ever get them bad, but we always powder and spend lots of time being naked. :) if that doesnt help dry it out then we will dab on some Desitin.


  • Never used A&D yet…first baby is only 5 weeks away :) so excited… I would love to win the bundle of goodies being given away. I know my son Elijah would love them and so would I… How awesome would it be to have a product I can rely on :)


  • With my daughter we used A&D and it worked wonders! With our son we have been using cornstarch baby powder. It is currently the only thing that will work on his little bum.


  • My mom used A&D on me and I plan to use it on my baby starting in December when the little angel arrives! Love A&D! :)


  • I’m pregnant with my first but will have A&D on hand for when the baby comes. I’ve heard from friends it works wonders.


  • I use Thayer’s Lavender Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel as a wipe spray on flannel wipes (after wetting with water) first as a preventative. Then I use Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm for diaper rash. We use bumGenius 4.0 diapers with Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin detergent (if that makes a difference).

    I do like to use a little powder sometimes for comfort (put on my hand away from the changing area and then patted on), and for that we use Country Comfort Baby Powder, an all natural talc-free brand.


  • Letting the monkeys run around with a naked but seemed to be the only thing that got rid of any rash. We tried using creams and ointment on their butts but it didnt seem to help much, maybe we should have tried A&D.


  • With number 5 on the way I tried every ointment on the market and it comes down to the baby your using it on. A&D, Desitin, Aquaphor frequent diaper changes and air dying kept ask my tushies rash free


  • After using many brands with my son, I found that a&d worked best. I’d let his bum air out for a bit then smear on some a&d in between his thighs and in between his hiney cheeks and almost every time the redness would be gone within the next few diaper changes. You just have to make sure the baby isn’t sitting in a wet diaper for too long!


  • My family used different creams. When my niece and nephew were babies, we use Desitin for their rash. We are sure to use it again in the fall. I never try that one A&D. That makes me curious.


  • We use desitin on our little ones bum. We haven’t tryed anything else because we put it on and he has instant relief.


  • I use A&D and love it on my 4 month old.


  • Well, knock on wood, we’ve gotten through 8 months without any rashes! But I can say that A&D worked wonders on healing a new tattoo! (advice from long ago.. When I was cool and got tattoos…) With that knowledego, I know & trust A&D for my sons diapering needs! Good luck!


  • I love A&D it’s the best I tell everyone I know about it and how great it works I never leave the house with out it I have even used it on myself when I had a rash on my arm and it helped clear it right up A&D really is great and I think everyone should know that I use it on my son ever diaper change Just to make sure he does not get a rash and A&D works the best I tryed a few things befor A&D but by far A&D works the best !!


  • We use aveeno but don’t really every get rashes…….. We just air it out and keep the booty dry


  • A&D and fresh air!! Actually it has many uses: diaper rash,baby acne,chapped lips… The list goes on and on!!


  • Breast milk! Though if that doesn’t work and we need something stronger we go with A&D or Anti Monkey Butt Baby.


  • Cornstarch would normally be my go to diaper rash treatment but baby #2 had such a severe rash we had to get a prescription. Took 5diff scripts before we finally got one that worked! Now that the bad rash is gone ER use baby powder with cornstarch whenever she gets a little red.


  • triple paste w desitin gel over it!


  • My favorite A&D moment was when my husband was changing my daughter Audrianna, and he didn’t know how much cream to use, so instead, he used the whole package. Therefore, it took 1 hour, to clean A. The baby b. Himself (who managed to get cream on himself, his face, and on the ceiling some how) and C. The dog. Long story short, You only need a little A&D, because it’s THAT good ;)

    Thanks A&D


  • I use A&D prevent and treat creams to help keep my little girls tush rash-free :)


  • I used a variety of creams for my son when he had diaper rash from desitin to butt paste to aquaphor, but never a&d. Through all the creams I used I can’t say I would swear by one of them. I have a 3 month old and she has not had a diaper rash yet. A&d might be my next product if it works as well as everyone says!


  • A&D was the only thing I could find to work on my oldest, 10 years ago, and it is what I have used on my next 3 as well! I have 2 in diapers right now and couldn’t live without it!


  • My daughter is allergic to milk, which was difficult to diagnose as an infant. Needless to say, she endured a lot of terrible diaper rash while doctors tried to figure out what was best for her (she would even react if I had dairy and later nursed her). We tried several creams and ointments. Baths were painful for her. I think in the end it helPed most to keep her out of a diaper as long as possible, though that is tough to do when baby is sick.


  • I have 4 children. Ages 13, 11, 8, and 2 months old. My daughter who is now 8 years old used to get horrible diaper rashes. I tried everything from Desitin to Vaseline. A&D Ointment worked very well, I had to stop giving her baths by age 2 they got so bad. She has had to shower & limit her tub bath to once every week (only because she enjoyed them) I would let her run around without a diaper on to air the infected area out. Aquaphor worked pretty good too. I am hoping with my newborn that I won’t have this problem again (she is also a girl).


  • Our poor daughter had diaper rash for almost 4 months straight, starting from day 1 at the hospital! We tried everything: A&D, Desitin, Vaseline, and even a suggestion to put liquid Maalox on, blow dry it dry, then cover with A&D. It was like it had a mind of its own. Not even cloth diapers helped, or different brands of disposables. Talk about feeling like a bad mom! Every diaper change I would put her over my arm and gently wash her bottom under the tap in the sink, blow dry (on low) her bottom until she was 100% dry, then apply whichever remedy we were trying. The only thing that made any difference was air exposure. I’d put her in the floor on a couple towels to nap, and I’d stand by to clean her off every time she’d pee or poop (she was having a million little poops instead of a couple big ones). Other than that the only thing that helped her flare ups was the extra strength (aka expensive) Desitin.


  • I used A&D for my son for a year and half but for some reason they don’t sell it anymore in the store like Walmart and Shoppers. I shopped around and I found nothing. It is a good ointment, now I have to switched to Desitin. I don’t like it much because it is not effective compare to A&D but what can I do.


  • The NICU sent us home with a tube and my mom used it with me. Use Cd so I wish they made a cloth safe one! But until that day comes we use Grandma El’s sit every change to create a barrier and it normally works perfectly. We have had some bad rashes since he sleeps 12+ hours a night and then I pull out the a&d and a fleece liner. It does the trick.


  • When requiring creams I use Desitin and A&D.. For some pain relief for a very rashed baby bottom boil chamomile in a huge pot . Be sure to drain out chamomile flowers and stems and then pour chamomile water in baby bath tub . Let the water cool (warm) and sit your little one and let hhimher soak. Its a natural remedy and has healing and soothing effects! My doc agrees :) thanks for the opportunity :) crossing fingers


  • I notice what work best for my daughter’s diaper rash is not to use baby wipes to clean. Warm water wash cloth after each diaper change and naked time.


  • I use A&D every time I change my son’s diaper to prevent the ugly diaper rash he got when he was a newborn. Being a new mom, I didn’t know much about diaper rash or how to treat it, but as soon as I saw Liam start to develop his first rash I pulled out the tube of A&D I recieved as a baby shower gift. It’s been a great relationship ever since!


  • Loads of diaper cream, whatever I can get my hands on! Butt paste, A&D, etc.!


  • With my two oldest children Ive always soaked them in a warm bath (without soap) and then put the A&D on before bed. Also using the ointment after every diaper change. Ill do the same when new baby arrives in September!


  • This is my first, due in July so I haven’t tried any yet but from the other comments A&D sounds amazing, would love to try it. :)


  • I use sensicare. I have top use liners with it but it works. Normally it only take one or two applications if I catch it early.


  • For bad diaper rash, I like to give my babies a nice warm bath first to clean the area. Then I let the area air dry. Then I apply the diaper rash cream and diaper. For my kids, only A&D or Desitin Overnight work to heal diaper rash effectively.


  • With my second I use a&d all the time…when she had a terrible rash I used cold water to clean her butt because it was so sore and then let her air out a little, followed by triple paste, for her night diaper but day diapers were with the a& d diaper rash cream!! Could really use this give away since I go and buy your cream all the time!


  • I’ve only ever used vaseline with disposables and olive oil with my cloth and we are rash free @ 6 months! (**searches around for some wood to knock on**)


  • Every Child That God Puts On this Earth Is A True Blessing . I thank God Every Day For The little mericals that he had blessed me with . I also thank men for making the stuff to take care of are little blessing because they are life savors ^_^


  • Baking soda sprinkled into a warm bath! Did the trick every time! It neutralizes all the inflammation instantly…A&D for under the diaper is also a must!


  • This sounds crazy but I bf my children and they always pooped a TON! My pediatrician said to squirt their bottom w water, pat dry, let air, and add cream as usual. I promise withing 2-3 days you see a difference!


  • When my children have gotten diaper rashes, there are
    A couple of things that really work. Try and put
    There bum down in a little warm water to soak
    Then allow it to dry completely . Let baby dry to
    The open air before diapering. After it dries put a
    Good layer of diaper cream.


  • Right now I have used desitin, but my baby is only 6 months and only had 1absolutely really bad diaper rash so far :)


  • Raw shea chamomile and argon oil (w/ frankincense and myrrh) works for everything on baby skin!


  • A&D is what I use with my two boys


  • My little girl at the moment is battling a bacteria infection that has caused diarrhea and her bottom is so raw. :( I have tried desitin and resinol and so far it isn’t working… I could sure use something else. :)


  • My diaper rash remedy is a baking soda bath with naked time afterwards to air out good and proper. I then apply A & D ointment followed by a layer of Desitin over that. Hoping to win this!!


  • I’m a new mom and I e been using A&D since my son was born
    I won’t try anything. Else. It has worked wonders. When my son has had a diaper rash I’ve used Dove sensitive bar soap to clean him up and A&D to prevent it.


  • i have a six month baby girl and i use A&D ,i love it my baby too/


  • never used it but im about to be a mom and want to try it


  • I really like Angel Baby Bottom Balm- but it’s a little pricey…so we also use A&D!


  • I use only a&d for my babies bottoms! Its an awesome product . We also use it not only for bottoms but cracked dry hands, tattoos, dry feet and anything else we can think of. Its great and does a great job. I dont know what we’d do without it. No other product works as good and I know cause I’ve tried a few and never again will I do that A&D is simple the best bottoms down we love it!


  • I always used petroleum jelly. I made sure to air the bum often and always “fan it” with a diaper before putting the new diaper on to make sure the bum is dry. My MIL swears by A&D and I’m trying to win this giveaway for my sister in law and her husband. They’re newlyweds, expecting their first baby in august and is currently fighting a battle with hospital bills and loss of income after a car crash that totaled their car. I’m trying to scrape up as much baby necessities as I can for them so I’d love it if I could win this for them :)


  • I came across A&D by accident because while I was nursing and using lanolin on myself and my daughters lips, I thought about how lanolin would be great to use on my baby’s bottom to prevent chapping (but didn’t want to because of how thick it was, thought it would be too difficult to use all the time). I asked a friend about this and she told me about A&D because it contains lanolin. So the rest is history! We love A&D!


  • I used Desitin and A&D.


  • I believe the best diaper rash remedy would have to be cornstarch! Back in the day that was all they had and it seemed to work very well. I used it on my daughter numerous times and it cleared it right up within the following days. Oh and of course A&D ointment. A&D ointment can be used for so many things and diapers rashes is just one of many. I always like to have a tube around the house. Thanks for the giveaway! :)


  • Hope i win…my babys butt needs it. ;P


  • I use A&D ointment for more than diaper rashes. It works wonders for cuts,dry skin and ruff heels.And I have even used it on my scalp after a relaxer it the scalp has been damaged. I have even mixed with lotion and used it on my kids eczema.


  • We use Butt Paste! It works like magic!:)


  • I have 3 kids. My oldest never had a problem but both of my girls had really bad problems with diaper rash. I always tried to put them on a pile of towels and let them air out. My youngest actually had to sleep that way a few times. But as a preventative measure I always used petroleum jelly or A&D ointment as a barrier cream.


  • I’ve always just used desitin or a&d. Never really know of any home remedies. Thanks!


  • We swear by A&D! We put a little on our lil man’s rump after every diaper change and he hasn’t had diaper rash yet!


  • Believe it or not we stay clear of just about everything except Vaseline, everything else dries out our little ones hinney’s… and we have 3 and 1 more due in 2.5weeks! We apply the Vaseline and let them “air it out” for as long as we dare! :) But that works for us!


  • My daughter had a pretty bad diaper rash. A&d took care of it quickly and I’ve been usually baby powder for prevention every since


  • I make sure to change her at least every two hours (especially when she was super small and wet so much). I also really like aveeno products, they are gentle on her sensitive skin.


  • Our little one had sensitive skin, so letting her air out after getting wet (pool, bath, soaked diaper) and some baby powder. We were also big fans of boudreaux butt paste.. But always looking for new trips for our upcoming Halloween baby!


  • I’m about to have my first baby so I don’t know what my best diaper rash remedy will be, but I am loving reading everyone else’s tips!


  • i found that a&d works really good on my son. and it helps when he has rash so it dont hurt him so bad


  • We’ve (luckily) only had to deal with one diaper rash, albeit a pretty bad one. The doctor suggested Aquaphor and it cleared immediately!


  • NAKED TIME!!! Then butt cream and diaper!!


  • My best remedy is nakey time and baking soda in the bath!


  • My most trusted diaper rash remedy is boudreauxs all natural butt paste! This cream clears my baby’s bottom withing two hours!!! It is the best!


  • I have a seven week old girl and could really use these items!


  • Buttpaste and air if they are walking


  • To be honest, I have used all of the popular diaper rash creams and ointments out there and they all have worked! I usually buy what’s on sale ;) More importantly, I try to avoid the rash altogether by changing often, wiping gently and letting her “air out” :)


  • My baby got a rash the night he was born! I was so sad, everyone I knew swore by Desitin and Balmex. his doctor had to prescribe him a cream and NOTHING worked!!!! One day I was so sad his rash was so bad that it had an open wound! I cried so much for hours later I was still beyond upset and I couldn’t find wipes. So I took out my breast pad and squeezed milk and wiped him with it, 2 hours later GONE!!!! I put A & D to prevent it now. I had no idea it had a strong one I will look for it but this sweepstakes, the winner will be very lucky..


  • Im having my first baby in August and I honestly need all of the help I can get. I am an unemployed student working on m BS. My boyfriend doesn’t want anything to do with me and my parents live hours away so I am on my own. That package would help me out so much because I don’t have much money and I don’t know what Im going to do. I would really apprciate this. Thank you


  • Baking soda baths and naked time always work for me when the cream just isn’t cutting it. We finally figured out to pre-treat when our boys were teething and congested – for some reason that combination always ended up giving them the absolute worst diaper rashes. If we pre-treated at night with A&D they’d sleep through the night and be rash free in the morning – if we didn’t we were all in a world of pain


  • Either A&D or Desitin, or if it’s really bad, I mix it with Maalox and Neosporin.


  • My first little one will get here early November… A&d has been highly recommended by all my mommy friends :)


  • We love Aquaphor. But A&D is a close second!


  • My baby’s tush gets A&D at each change and it stays nice and happy. I keep him changed often and since he’s only nursed he doesn’t have any high acid content bm’s so he’s good to go. I’ve used A&D on all 4 of my boys and it works really well. It’s great~!


  • a & d is all I have ever used & winning this would be amazing now I am recently unemployed! the worst rash we have had was when he broke out from huggies diapers & it cleared it up in no time! & I use it on his chin when it gets red from slober and it works wonders! <3 a & d!


  • Depending how bad…Desitin, Zinc Oxide, or Calmoseptine. So far my daughter has been blessed with a rash free bottom.


  • I am due July 29th with my first .. But have had tons of experience with baby and diaper rashes I have worked at a daycare for 2 years and many kiddos prior to that but my mom used A&D on me. I was 2 and 1/2 months early.so needed lots of attention.. I plan on using A &D on my little boy here in a few weeks. And also my sister-in-law swears by the corn startch remedy. Will try that one out if it becomes necessary for me to try something else like if I’m desperate and run out of A&D .. :-)


  • I have always used Butt Paste, but I wouldn’t mind giving A&D a try!!


  • Love A&D have used it for years not only for baby diaper rash but also for beautifully healing up brand new tattoos. It’s grest stuff!!!!


  • Prevention first…frequent diaper changes. If a rash happens I trey to let my little one aspire things out and sheng a diaper is on I use A & D.


  • With my first baby I used Corona as soon as I seen any redness at all and she never had a diaper rash. :) Now I have a 3 wk old and I’m just praying I can keep him from getting a bad rash also.


  • I use A&D-I don’t like Desitin because it is so hard to wipe off my baby’s bum. I also will use cornstarch if the rash is really bad.


  • I use A&D original in the daytime and Triple Paste at night. Seems to work. Fortunately!! I also change diapers as soon as I notice they are soiled.


  • The diaper cream A&D would be awesome for the baby because it would help the baby not to have to hurt alot, this is my first child and it will be wonderful thing in the world. :)


  • My baby has never had diaper rash… but i usually used a&d when i worked at a daycare


  • I have always used A&D I have found out it you use it once a week if your baby needs it or not! It will keep your baby’s butt fresh without diaper rash,It has always worked for my babies.My newest baby girl is 3 months and i use it once a week faithfully,I love this stuff and always buy some for my friends baby showers! Thanks again A&D diaper rash cream,Keep up the good work!


  • Anything containing calendula:)


  • I find that each kid is different. One of mine was sensitive to Desitin and would say it burns yet it worked well for others. I personally like A&D as precautionary when a small bit of diaper rash would show up… Going to try Anti Monkey Butt when my little guy is born next month!


  • Never tried A&D we just use coconut oil


  • I like to wipe with just warm water and let her air dry.


  • I’m going to be a first time mom in 3 months and I just finished registering today. A&D products were definitely on my registry! I remember the products being great when I worked at a daycare a few years ago.


  • A warm bath with oatmal in a cheese cloth no pamper n a&d works every time


  • Pure cornstarch. My almost 10-month old is just getting over his first bad diaper rash and I tried almost everything. It wasn’t until I talked with my mom and she suggested the cornstarch. Started to sprinkle a little in the diaper (away from my son so he wouldn’t inhale any) and a few days later he is on the mend. So simple!


  • Baby due soon! Would love to try A&D!


  • I’ve always use a+d epically now that my daughter is eating new foods! This is the beat this I’ve ever use d that actually would ans I’ve been through 5the different types of creams.


  • A little cornstarch each change, helps keep it away. But I love A&D for after the rash is there. Works quick!


  • I’ve used A&D since day one, even had a tube in the hospital. I’m a nurse and seeing how it works as a preventative I love it!


  • AIR! My youngest (two-month-old) just had is first diaper rash and after leaving him bare-bottomed for about fifteen minutes, I noticed later that day it was gone!


  • I have always sworn by A&D original. Anytime


  • We don’t get too much diaper rash around here, but when we do it’s a doozy. I like to let my babe air it out after a little sits bath. Poor little tush doesn’t want to be cleaned with wipes. Nothing better than airing it out. At night if it still is really red I’ll add some diaper ointment.


  • If Jackies bum gets a little sore I like to give him a bath and let him soak; dry him off really good and then apply the A&D all over his bottom. It’s the best thing to protect his little bumblebee!!


  • My son had a bad diaper rash to the point he was bleeding due to the runs we tried destin it made it worse then butt paste and no change then resinol which works but still was bad and then we tried a&d and litterally over night he was much better we used it after every diaper change for a week and he was cleared no problem we have a huge can of it and love it I even use it myself when my tat gets dry!!


  • My most trusted advice about treating a diaper rash would be to let air get to to the affected area a s much as possible. Also later on the affected area after every diaper change….put a goodlayer on before bed a well!I also had to use a warm paper but softpaper towel if the rash was too bad.


  • I have a beautiful red haired, fair skinned baby girl and she always seems to have some sort of diaper rash she is battling. A&D works wo itnders and sometimes I cover it with aquapher. But frequent diaper changestry to are a muddy and when it gets bad baking baths are a must.
    She also eats alot of yogurt and her doctor recomended probiatics for kids to help battle yeast infections.


  • My lityle girl has always had a sensitive stomach and gets diarrhea very easily which causes.her bottom to literally blister.sometimes and a&d alwazys seems to help better than her prescription stuff


  • I’ve only ever used Buttpaste


  • I am a new mom, haven’t tried a&d cream, but buy reading the comments it is a very good diaper cream, I will love to try it on my baby “Ryan” ..He is my treasure , he needs to use the best !!!!!


  • Sorry, i noticed my email was wrong as I hit submit on my previous post. :(

    Pure cornstarch. My almost 10-month old is just getting over his first bad diaper rash and I tried almost everything. It wasn’t until I talked with my mom and she suggested the cornstarch. Started to sprinkle a little in the diaper (away from my son so he wouldn’t inhale any) and a few days later he is on the mend. So simple!


  • This was a good thing for me to look at! I’m a new mom to be and have no clue! This helped :) thank u!


  • I was raised by my grandmother and the best remedy for diaper rash according to her is corn starch. I have two girls and used it on both of them with no problems. I am having my first boy in 3 weeks and will be using this on him as well. If it fails trust I will have a back up plan and it will be A& D.


  • I have used plain corn starch on my 5 month old son’s little butt ever since he was born. It is a great remedy for us mommies on a tight budget. I would LOVE to have any of the products mentioned in this giveaway, and getting all of them would just rock for baby Victor and I :)


  • O o o. Pick me pick me. I used a&d on my twins. I now have a 2month old whom I plan to use cream on when need arises.


  • I just had my first child, and A&D Is the ONLY thing I use on his sensitive little bum! It’s a lifesaver!


  • I use a&d desitin and aveeno…not all at once though lol


  • We use A&D! I make sure to air dry his tooshie then put a dab on and it works wonders!


  • i would love to win those prizes. im a single mom of 4 children and my youngest is 6 mths. i could use it all. i could plenty of wipes and ointment. i have a little girl. it would be a blessing.


  • Only A&D with my boys, since the first meconioum diaper rash in the hospital!


  • I Use Aveno Baby Rash And Desitin Both Work Good


  • I usually use a&d but also go all natural. A nice warm bath to really clean the butt then let my kiddos run around naked for awhile before putting a diaper back on them. :-)


  • We used every kind of ointment on my son. But when the rash was bad the best thing was always naked time…till he peed on something.


  • Buttpaste was a staple with my first but my pedi just recommended A&D to prevent


  • I use a&d or destin on my 3wk old. Both work great. A good ol’ home remedy is breast milk though. Great contest!


  • My hole family. Uses a&d. Not only for there. Kids but when they get a new tattoos and when i have my baby girl in august. Thats what i be usen to


  • I try and use cloth diapers along with an ointment.


  • I’ve started using A& E after 2 weeks post delivery. My daughter has very sensitive skin and it has never irritated her bum. I’ve also used it on her thighs that got a rash and it cleared it right up. I use a ton at night since I don’t change her diaper at night. She’s almost 4 months and not once gotten diaper rash. I love this stuff!


  • A and D works great! I also like to let him hang out in his bare bum.


  • the only product to use! even beats doctor perscriptions. :)


  • For my daughter giving her a bath at night time and making sure she is dry and then applying a&d ointment on her chaffed skin will be a sure fix in the morning :)


  • This stuff is the best…used it on all my babies!


  • My baby has extremely sensitive skin!!! I’ve tried everything on my baby’s sensitive bottom (I went to the local supermarket and bought everything for diaper rash on the shelf) I even made my own concoctions from holistic, organic recipes online and nothing worked. I think the store myst have been out of A&D when I went because about 4 weeks later I spotted it on the shelf. I grabbed it and tried it that night, the next morning my baby’s bottom wasn’t pink and irritated like it normally is!!! I was sold! I only use A&D ointment. I even make sure to put it in every baby shower gift I buy… ;-) Us “old” Mom’s gotta give the “First-timers” the tips and tricks!!! ;-)


  • … My son is almost 3 :D on July 17…But I remember that he had frequent diaper rash,, My sister recommended me A&D ,, one time my baby had an allergic reaction to a diaper brand and took him to his doctor, I commented him that he gets frequent diaper rashes and he advised me (Due to we live in Arizona) to use every time I change him VASELINE WITH BABY POWDER… To maintin his skin hydrated and that helps prevent diaper rash… Now I am prepared we my little one due on October :))


  • Air drying and Desitin have worked well with our son. Wouldn’t mind having some A&D on hand to try with baby #2!


  • 100% pure, unrefined Ghanaian Shea butter. We have used it since day one and he has never had a rash. It also combats bouts of excema and can be eaten to assist with congestion due to a cold. I did try some
    Diaper creams though and absolutely hated them
    As they caked on and was toooooo hard to wash off. Also contained chemicals… Shea butter is natural and although you either have to warm
    It or rub your hands vigorously, it is worth it!!!!


  • I always use a product with zinc in it daily to prevent a rash but if one occurred I try to treat it with the same zinc diaper rash cream. Bag balm also works and a protective barrier :)


  • I always use a&d cream and powder together. The rash is gone the next morninf. Hes only had 3 so far at 7months..but with my other 2 boys it always worked as well


  • I have never tried A&D before, I have always used desitin. We put a little on baby girl’s bottom every night before bed. So far, so good!


  • We use Desitin and Aquaphor. I’ve heard great things about A&D. Would love to try it.


  • I’ve only used A&D. I just had my third baby yesterday


  • A&D works great! Prevention is key. I like to use a A&D routinely on my son in the morning and baby powder at night to keep diaper rash from starting.


  • this would be great!!!!!thanks!!!


  • I always use vasline or a&d


  • I have tried just about every diaper rash cream out there and have found that A&D works the best. I have 5 children ranging from 23 to 2 and I still use it for my youngest. I have a granddaughter that was born in April and A&D is all my son and daughter-in-law use. I also have a grandson due in August and his parents are stocked up on A&D to use as well!!


  • We have always used Boudreauxs Butt Paste :)


  • I am 7 1/2 months pregnant with my first so I don’t have any secrets of my own yet but thank you for having this giveaway so everyone else can share and give me some great ideas!!!!


  • Love a and d for everything. I could totally use the a and d and the goodies. My hubby and I are gearing up to have baby #3 (they’ll all be under 3)! Wooo we are going to be busy!


  • I always used A&D and desitin with my now 20 month old daughter. Changing her diaper frequently and IMMEDIATLEY after she had a bowel movement always helped her rashes to disappear.


  • After washIng with warm water every morning, we do diaper free time for as long as we can!


  • A&D has always been the go-to for me.


  • This is my first baby & we haven’t had diaper rash yet so I dont have a favorite remedy but I’m definitely open to suggestions of what is best. I have heard great things about A&D & plan to keep some on hand for when I need it.


  • A&D saved my sons little tushie! About a month ago he was hospitalized with a gastrointestinal virus, which caused him to have beyond severe diaper rash for continual diarrhea. The nurses gave me several different creams, powders and wipes to see if they’d clear up the rash and none ever did. We finally had a nurse recommend A&D ointment. I’ve used it on my tattoos before, but never thought about using it for a diaper rash…..I went and picked some up that next day and sure enough, within about three days his little tushie was all cleared up and rash free!


  • I am a mom to be and a grandmother, yup that’s right ! My mom always swore by desiitn, so I stick with that, but have tried A&D on occasion. I have to say the bath and naked remedies are tried and true, but this zinc oxide sounds very interesting. Also, too much fruit, I never thought of that, but it’s in my diaper rash mind file, thanks ;)


  • A&D Products are the only products that people have recommended to me since I am a new mom! I love the A&D prevent original ointment and I am grateful that my son has not had a sever diaper rash.


  • With my last two I was given a bunch of butt paste and it did work very well. This baby (edd 7/16) I was given some a&d and heard great things about it. I’m excited to try it and hopefully prevent diaper rash all together! (hey a mama can hope!)


  • Wash (when possible), air dry for a few minutes, and apply the purple tube of A&D cream.


  • we love a&d and corn starch :-)


  • My old reliable remedy has always been A& D original! I’ve seen it cure the absolute worst rashes right up better than any medication could. I worked in a nursing home for years and that’s what we used when everything else failed… I’ve also heard coconut oil works and I’ve tried it when I was out of a& d and am impressed.


  • We always had A&D ointment in the house growing up! We used it for a lot of different things, not just diaper rashes! As for my son, I have found prevention is key! I apply a liberal amount every night before bed. I have done this ever since he started sleeping through the night because there was going to be a longer period of time between diaper changes. Helps keep his buns dry and to protect his little buns. I also apply when we take a longer car ride and we aren’t necessarily going to be able change his diaper right away.


  • I had tried many different diaper rash creams. And with my first we just used whatever we had laying around. (He never really had a bad rash.) However, when our second was diagnosed w/ cancer at 6 weeks of age we learned quickly that a good diaper rash solution was needed. After chemotherapy he would get the worst rashes!! We finally settled on a rotation of A&D and Aquaphor. Another thing that helped cut down the acidity of his “biohazardous poo” was to use Maylox on his bum as well.
    It was great finding products that worked well. So thank you!


  • We use A&D or balmex and gave had good results. Also the desiring bath treatments work well. Frequent diaper changes are a must especially when she started on solids she had more rashes with certain foods.


  • i use this cream everyday, i apply thick layer of this cream to prevent diaper rash. now he dont get any diaper rashes.


  • Love A&D and love free A&D even more :) I hope I win!!


  • My son had a really bad rash and I had tried many different creams to try and make it go away. Finally I walked into Walgreens and pick up this petrollem jelly like A+D tub and it worked right away. It was the worst rash my son ever had and within the same day I could see results.


  • My pediatrician recommended A & D so that is what we use. It works well and that is all that matters!


  • No babes, yet. But I’ve enjoyed all the suggestions.


  • When my daughter was first born, her poor little butt was deep deep red for about two weeks. I felt so bad, i didn’t know what to do for her! The only thing that worked to get rid of it and keep it away was using Aquaphor. Thank goodness for that! Now, I try to changer her diaper as much as possible with out wasting the diapers. She hasn’t had a rash in about a month :)


  • Running around with no diaper and corn starch in the diaper work best with my son!


  • I use california baby. I’ve heard people rave about regular cornstarch!


  • A&D is the only one I’ll use, love it!!


  • We love A&D we use it on our 3 month old everyday!


  • My 5 month old has never had diaper rash thanks to not to frequent- or infrequent- changes. And I swear by baby powder after a particularly bad poopy.


  • The best remedy is letting em run around naked lol. If i use anything its usually just vasoline


  • As a new mom I was open to suggestions. I was told Destin and Aveeno were really great for diaper rash. After about three days with a red tushy my daughters sitter who now has three adult children of her own told me that she swears by A&D. Needless to say we’ve never gone back to anything else.


  • I ony use a&d ointment. I use it with every diaper changing. My son is 5months old and we have yet to have a diaper rash. I swear by a&d ointment and smell is not bad at all. I use pampers sensitive wipes too there more wet than most which doesnt make the area raw, after all the diaper changes.


  • Oops…clarification of my above comment. The purple tube is my Desitin Cream for more serious rashes. When it’s not that bad, I usually use the gold tube of A&D ointment.


  • My son is so prone to diaper rash. We constantly change his diapers and make sure he always has a nice clean butt, although sometimes its just not preventable. When those times come I use all original a&d ointment. Its the best product you could ever have in a diaper bag or in a nursery. :)


  • My momma, Rest her soul (she passed in November 2009), she aways used to say, “To heal a rash, you need a good meal and sunshine”. I suppose she meant it since her suggestion was a home made oatmeal mush of oatmeal, a hint of lemon juice and A&D ointment and the baby should go bare bottom in the daylight. I haven’t yet tried it on my little one, but I trust her opinion, she was always great with babies.


  • A&D is amazing!!!!


  • I don’t leave the house without a & d!


  • I would never use any but A&D. It the best.


  • I use Anti-Monkey Butt powder and only clean with unscented wipes. Spray down the diaper area well during bath and only use oatmeal soap on sensitive areas.


  • We use Boudreaux’s Butt Paste for everyday diaper changes and original A&D if things flair up. It works for our little guy’s sensitive butt.


  • My daughter doesn’t get too many diaper rashes, but when she does we reach for A&D first, as it was recommended by her doctor. It does the trick every time! :)


  • I don’t know the best diaper rash remedy…. my first baby is due any minute now! We are planning to cloth diaper; is A+D ok with cloth diapers? Is any diaper rash cream ok with cloth diapers?


  • We use a&d at every diaper change and if he starts to get a lil red broudreaux’s butt paste!


  • I trust desitin with my heart! One day there’s a little diaper rash the next day is gone! And of course the one and only that never fails is changing my daughter’s diaper thoroughly:-)


  • I use A&B with baby powder


  • Ive always used A&D on my kids. It’s always helped clear up the rash quickly. I’ve sometimes let my kids crawl around in cotton underwear to help air out their little tush as well.


  • I’ve been using desitin but I’d love to try a&d per all the recommendations. Also, I’ve never tried breast milk as some have suggested. I’ll try next time my little man’s bum gets red.


  • My LO has yet to get a diaper rash knock in wood but i have a&d at the ready I have used it to cure many of my own rashes its also the only thing that will clear up my dry skin now i love it and will continue to use it


  • Our son was in NICU and we were advised to use Prescription Butt Paste. I have to admit it has always worked wonders since my son has a very sensitive stomach, he unfortunately gets rashes more then I’d like. Best way to prevent is freq. changes and preventive cream. When it’s really bad I use Destin Max Strength clears up with 24-48 even the worst of rashes so far. I haven’t tried A&D! Thanks for the giveaway, if I win I will def give feedback of the tubes since this is an ongoing battle. :-)


  • We have a son who’s almost 4 months old and we’re a first time parents..Luckily for me, I worked as a nanny for 5 years and I have a wonderful sister who offers me great advice on products that works with her two kids..
    To avoid diaper rush, we try to keep him dry as much as possible, as soon as he did his business, we change it and don’t let him sit on it for long.. every change we put Vaseline.. and when there’s some redness, Desitin does wonders for him..
    Hope we’ll win :)


  • I fortunately never had to deal with diaper rash!! My daughter is 9 months old now. All I do is put A+D on her right before she goes to bed. She’s been clear so far!


  • My son used to get frequent and severe diaper rashes due to having extremely sensitive skin. We would give him a bath to soak and soothe his skin as well as alleviate the pain. We used Desitin soothing bath treatment. It’s basically an oatmeal bath treatment. It worked great! When he was completely dry, we would apply a thick layer of A&D ointment with a fresh diaper which he would keep on overnight. By the next morning the rash was totally healed up. We would keep applying A&D ointment with every diaper change. It worked like a charm!


  • I just use Vaseline diaper rash remedy and do not let my baby put on a diaper more than 3/4 hours. she is doing fine!


  • My first is still cooking til Sept, but in my family we always used coconut oil… If desparate A&D


  • Acidpohilus powder in a bottle. Most diaper rashes are caused by yeast and this quickly clears it up.


  • So far, I’ve only tried A&D diaper ointment. After each episode, the rash was completely gone in the morning! The baby and I love it!!


  • i used a&d just like everyone else.. it worked really good too. lol


  • I have no clue what is supposed to be good or not for a baby…This is my first one and I am freaking out cause I dont know what I should or should not use D: Off topic I think the picure taken is absolutly adorable :D


  • I’ve used A&D for my little one ever since she was born. I also give her some “nakie time” to let her little bum breathe!


  • A&D and letting baby run naked :)


  • Diaper rash cream works everytime…


  • Love a&d has worked for bo my little ones


  • I have tried tons of stuff butt my rashy baby doesnt have a ” go to” rash cure that works all the time. Ive learned soda baths followed by fresh air/no diaper works wonders before bed!


  • When it comes to diaper rash or skin irritation at the behind of baby, I use Desitin. Just recently I bought A&D for a change, and it works too.


  • Love my LO so much. First time mom and loving it! He’s the best little guy ever. Any advice/products are well appriciated! Love this website.


  • Im a first time mommy to be at 8 months pregnant but my mom always told me noyhing is better than A&D ointment!!


  • I am a new mom, and during my pregnancy I decided not no know the gender of my child, that is why I think that at the baby shower, I got lots of Bathing Items like shampoo and Desitin Cream. I have been using Desitin But really I am willing to try the best rashing cream there is for the benefit of my Baby. I heard great things about A&D so I am definetly going to try it on my baby Boy.


  • I love A+D and it works wonders with my niece. I’ve also tried Aveno oatmeal baths and it seems to soothe the irritations when it gets really bad.


  • Alternated between a&d and desitin for my baby’s bottom and rashes. Will be needing some more for baby #2 in a couple months!!!!!


  • Expecting our first in August, so still doing plenty of research. Would love to win this prize, though!


  • I’ve always used Destin or Butt Paste. Would love to try A&D brand!


  • I always use aquaphor if she starts to look red. The miracle that has always worked for the awful diaper rash is corn starch and maalox!!! My sister’s kids pedi told her about the dynamic duo, and it has been a blessing ever since!


  • When my daughters diaper rash get worst I swear by breastmilk..it does wonders on her bum. On every day use.. I use A&D.. I stock them too when it goes on sale match with coupons :)


  • I use A&D is the best of all when i dont have anything to use I wash it good warm water and i use chammomile tea let it dry or Aloe vera excelent


  • I love A&D!!! So does my 21 month old… We call it “good stuff” every time she asks me what it is I am putting on her lol! This would be a blessing to win, I’m having my 3rd little girl this Monday! Wish me luck!


  • I never faced massive dipper rashes except once. I used nystatin cream. I worked well. Also I make sure my baby gets enough air and make that area dry after each diaper change.


  • Baking soda baths work amazingly! Im having my first baby in august, but when i was a baby/toddler, my mom couldn’t afford much so i had cloth diapers. But when i had diaper rash, it usually came with yeast infections and my mom cured it over night with a baking soda bath!


  • The only thing that worked for my daughters diaper burn was triple paste! but we now use A+D to prevent and she hasn’t had one since!


  • the most natural things that we can use for oour babys the better


  • A & D ointment mixed with Maalox is the wonder cure for diaper rash. Even if I don’t win, everyone who has a baby needs to know about it. You just mix it until its a creamy smooth paste and store it in an air tight container in the fridge.


  • I use A&D for my daughter! Also change her diaper frequently and let her “air” out occasionally.


  • I have always used A&D, nothing else. We’re expecting twin boys October 2nd and will need plenty of A&D!!


  • Best diaper rash fix – letting baby be naked. Just lay him/her on a towel. For my little Cora, once she is dried off really really well we use an ointment as a moisture barrier then put her back in a cloth diaper so she doesn’t scratch the rash too much and make it worse.

    Great giveaway, by the way!

  • Butt cream makes the baby world go round! I use anything that has zinc oxide in it, especially if if has a creamy texture to keep my little girls skin silky and comfortable. I find that between breast feeding, changing diapers frequently, and applying cream every diaper change keeps her rash free, dry, and happy!


  • Never tried A&D but have always relied on Acquaphor and Desitin.


  • Would love to try these products :)


  • I used Destin and Maalox one our first child and it worked wonders but I would just like to use one thing that I don’t have to mix and heard a lot of good things about A&D…


  • My daughter was in the hospital with rsv and had several rounds of antibiotics… We alternated creams every couple days and that seemed to help more than anything!


  • I change my baby when she’s wet or has a dirty diaper as soon as I can. I keep her her bottom clean and dry and I use A&D ointment everytime I change her to help prevent diaper rash. So far so good, no rash.


  • We’ve always used desitin, and it works great! But I’m always willing to try something else, like A+D. :)


  • My daughter would get diaper rash if you looked at her the wrong way! Air, aquaphor, and cloth wipes were our cure.


  • What a beautiful baby picture! I wouldn’t mind trying A&D, right now i mix desitin and aquaphor, desitin for the healing aquaphor for the sealing.


  • I have used A&D for YEARS! I use it on my sons head for his cradle cap and a small drop in lotion when his or my skin gets dry! I use it on my elbows and knees year round! Plus the smell reminds me of my childhood! =)


  • Thankfully…we haven’t come across full diaper rash. When my daughter gets red…I use A&D cream…clears it right up!


  • My 1 month old had a horrible rash two days before I brought him home from the hospital. The drs and nurses there told me to just use Vaseline which just coated it without treating it. Finally they gave him a prescription tube of zinc oxide cream. Two days of properly airing his behind and using Zinc oxide finally made the redness go away.


  • aloe gel works like a charm….at least in theory.


  • A&D is the best. I use it on my little one at the first sign of redness and it never gets beyond that! Thanks for this AMAZING contest!!!!


  • I have a beautiful 3 week old boy at home & loving every minute of it.


  • I have only used A&D original on both my kids. It cleared up their diaper rashes quickly. I will not use any other product since I know A&D works so well. I have another baby on the way and A&D will be ready to use if need be.


  • With my kids I have always used desitin creamy.


  • Love a&d ointment


  • I’ve worked in the childcare field for over 10 years and have seen all kinds of diaper rash creams/ointments. Now that I’m expecting my first baby after 10 years of marriage, we’re going with A & D. I saw how it worked wonders on the little bums that I’ve diapered over the years.


  • I used A&D ointment with my first and will use it with my new baby too. I’m also going to try a natural oil called Tamanu oil.


  • Would love to win those goodies for my baby girl :))!


  • I started out using Destin, but it wasn’t making progress, so we switched to A&D and it definitely worked better, at least for my son’s tush. Truth be told though, the best remedy I can offer is to let your bugger run around butt naked in joyous, air-freshening joy haha. After his bath he gets to go full nude for an hour or so until bed, and it usually works like magic.


  • I will be a mommy for the first time in september. This gift will help me out so much, now that I’m going to be a single parent. So much has happened in the last 4 months. Diapers and wipes might.not seem a lot to others but its a lot to me I will really appreciate this gift….. But if another mother gets it I believe everything happens for a reason and I want to say to all the other mothers congratulations on becoming a mommy or being a mommy again

    Thank you for taking time out to look at all mothers n a need of your support
    Have a wonderful day!!!!


  • For my first born I used a&d it worked wonders I like that it can be used for other things other times I used corn starch as powder and made her a diaper out of her swaddle blankets worked like a charm and quickly too.


  • I use Desitin and Buttpaste.


  • I combine several creams.
    My son has eczema, so I’ve found having hydrocortisone, zinc oxide, petroleum jelly, corn starch and lotrimin really just about covers any type of rash.


  • i only use A&D for my best remedy it has worked really well with my preemies sensitive skin!!!


  • I love a & d especially for a preventative AND as CHAPSTICK!!!


  • It has been so long since I’ve changed diapers. I am due any day now and would love to win a bag of goodies that I know are useful and that have worked for my other children.


  • I was really surprised when my newborn bum becameso red and raw. It broke my heart that his brand new little bum looked painful. My sister had given me sample of the california baby diaper cream. I love it, its so smooth going on. The rash cleared up right away. I also tried Alveno,when the store was out of Cal Baby, but its chunky and not as easy to put on. We also blow dry his cute lil bum to make sure it stays dry and the rash doesn’t come back. =)


  • My baby’s bum would like to have this!! :)


  • I like aquaphor when my kids start to show signs of a rash-it does wonders at preventing a full blown rash.


  • Depends on the rash: Desitin creamy for regular mild rash; A&D for more serious issues. Lots of fresh air and long warm baths!!


  • I use A& D and Desitin with evert disper change – BEFORE the rash develops!


  • My parents only ever used Desitin on my siblings and I, but I’m not sure what I’ll use for my little one’s rashes. I think I’ll have to try a few products (Desitin, A+D, etc.) and see what works best for her bum :)


  • I have used Vaseline but would love to try a & d!


  • Desitin almost always works, but I do use A + D when it doesn’t. Luckily my son’s skin isn’t too sensitive, so we don’t have much of a problem with rashes. A little naked time and Desitin almost always knock it out!


  • I am nursing my almost three month old baby with receiving blankets. I would love, love, love a nursing cover and new pads. I have no cool baby gear and hope to win and get some new swag! :)


  • A good warm bath with sensitive skin or no soap on bottom. Pat good with soft wash cloth. Dry off softy with a soft cloth, patting dry. Getting all creases and areas around rash. Apply A&D ointment (lightly) , then a layer of Desitin on diaper rash ! For my granddaughter who gets the rash between her legs and vagina I use nystatin cream between . A light layer. Either put a diaper loosely or use a cloth diaper until clear !….Or let them air out….GO NAKED ! if you are staying home . No biggie !!! They need naked time too !!!


  • vaseline and leaving a diaper off to air the little booty out…and boudreauxs butt paste works miracles:)


  • I have never tried A+D but we live on a small hippie island and a local makes this oinment called Tiny Hiny and it works wonders if you don’t mind the smell of essential oils!


  • This might sound a little crazy but a good warm bath and then cornstarch… I like to use the little packaged ones. :) Works wonders


  • We use A&D for just about anything. Not only does it provide a great barrier from urine and feces in the diaper area but it also works well for bug bites, scrapes, dry flakey skin(also use on feet for those rough areas), sore areas from chapped or chaiffed skin, helps with protecting skin that is breaking down due to little ones chubby rolls or even on adults in skin folds, craddle cap, sore noses from colds or allergies, just to name a few medical uses. We have used A&D for on our tatoos, squeeky door, jammed drawer, stuck windows, squeeky hindges. I have used it to help lube my rocking chair and to help my sliding closet doors. It lasts longer and doesn’t create a nasty wet mess like WD40.

    Also when I was breastfeeding my Dr. suggested using it to help with the soreness of my nipples and to help heal them when we were weining my daughter off. With a new baby due at the end of August this year I have already started buying a few extra tubes.


  • We’ve used Desitin, A&D, and the hospital version of A&D. We’ve had rashes turn into infections. What we use along with , when necessary, is A&D.


  • We’re a huge fan of A&D and Desitin! Works perfectly well for our daughter.. We say no-no to diaper rash! :)


  • WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS A BABY SHE WOULD GET DIAPER RASH REALLY BAD…I HAD TO CHANGE HER DIAPER AS SOON A SHE WENT…I WOULD SOAK HER IN THE BATH TO MAKE IT FEEL BETTER FOR HER….WHEN I STARTED USING A&D IT HELPED HER SO MUCH…I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THIS FOR MY NEW BABY…IT WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO ME


  • I have kids and a & d is the best its real easy to clean when they do have a rash but if you put it on all the time they want get a rash its the best .


  • Cloth diapers, frequent changes, and lots of naked baby time. But when he does get one, A & D is my go to to clear it up.


  • I don’t believe this unless i win the raffle/contest whatever you call this. I’ve tried “A LOT” of this the same raffle/contest,posted comments on their blogs and website but never won. The things i would need for my baby,I’ll buy them by myself rather than expecting something like this that is impossible to happen.Well, for those whoe believe in this,that’s your choice and for those who already won some prices,,good for you..I just think this kind of this aren’t for me.=)


  • My momma used A&D and I’m doing the same!


  • I don’t believe this unless i win the raffle/contest whatever you call this. I’ve tried “A LOT” of this the same raffle/contest,posted comments on their blogs and website but never won.

  • When I was pregnant, I was told to keep a blow dryer by the changing table, and always make sure to dry the baby’s bottom with it at each diaper change! I must admit, I never tried it, but I always take an extra minute to fan off my son’s booty and make sure it’s dry! :)


  • Aquaphor is usually my go-to product.


  • I am first time Mom-To-Be (in 2 weeks), so I can’t tell you what works, but I have heard that A&D and corn starch on top works wonders.


  • My little one hasn’t had a diaper rash yet. I try to air out her little bottom. Many friends have recommended A and D. :-)


  • I learned a lot from the nurses at NICU. They would always wipe my daughter with cotton full of vaseline.


  • I’ve tried Balmex and pure cornstarch


  • A&d works pretty good for my daughter, a doctor actually told me to use it for a yeast infection for her instead of the rx cream. Works great! I also work in a pharmacy and a lot of people use it for a moisturizer if their skin is really dry!


  • I’ve used a & d for my first two boys and after 14 years looks like I will be usinga
    &d for baby boy #3 :)


  • First I wipe my baby down with a dry towel and then I apply A&D, with a little sprinkle of powder on top. Works every time!!


  • I have an 18month old son & an 1month & 5day daughter. My son had the worst diaper rash coz when m at work my maid would forget or just wont change quickly when he poops so he would be so irritated that sometines he would bleed. I tried every trick in the land & it would take a week or so to heal. I started using Johnson’s Hypoallergenic Aqueous Cream with Aloe Vera & cleared in a day so Johnson’s was my diaper rash miracle cream it works wonders


  • I’ve been fortunate that my two oldest never really got a diaper rash. When they did show any sign of irritation, a little Aquaphor would do the trick.


  • love A&D, use it with both of my kids and will with the one on the way.


  • Breast milk does wonders


  • i really love useing A+D its my favorite thing to use for my pressus Little girl she is so senitive to other things the A+D works really good for her she has not broke out yet with A+D it is the best thing i will ever put on my childern


  • I use an ointment every diaper change to prevent it. has worked so far.


  • I use A&D at every diaper change!! I try to make each diaper change an exciting experience for my newest Zoey, 10 weeks. But there are a few rolls that I miss sometimes. I noticed a rash inside some rolls during a diaper change. I used A&D and it was cleared up in no time!! A&D for always makes it better!! :-)


  • If my baby is having lots of diaper rash, I try to change the wet diapers frequently to keep him dry.


  • My daughter is almost 3 months, thankfully she’s hasn’t gotten any rashes but I put some A&D (and sometimes Desitin) cream after her bath anyway. So far, no problems in that area.


  • I think A&D is the way to go, no? : )

    Rose


  • My mom only used Desitin on us, so that what I started out with. However, I had coupons for A+D when my daughter was 3 weeks old so I tried it. I love it and she likes it better too. Now that she 5 months she let me know when I ran out of A+D for a day or two that she was not happy with the desitin. It was too funny.


  • I have used but paste and desatin but it seems like A&D has always worked the best for my son.


  • I found sevearl things that work. I use a and d and bag balm to treat diaper rashes and I use baby powder to help prevent it


  • I’ve tried many different brands and A&D is the best by far. My 23 month old was getting (and is still sensitive to getting) severe diaper rash. we found out it was from eating citrus. The only diaper rash cream that worked and fast (within 1-2 diaper changes she would be cleared up) was A&D. A tip my aunt gave me that she did when her boys were babies, was to take cloths and cut them to fit in the diaper. Kind of like a womans pad in her underwear. Soak the cloth in vinigar and let air dry, not in the dryer. Put the dried cloth in the diaper. The vinigar absorbs the acid, so its not sitting on babies bottom. She said it worked wonders for her, But I had to much going on (new born, 1 yr old, breast feeding, ect.) to have the time to prep it.


  • It hard to find such things in my country Ethiopia, but i got one from the US and it works good. But now she is suffering again, my girl 9 months. Is it too early for her to start using potty? Because i put her on when she was 7 months.


  • I have used eveything on the market, however I found that Baby Ease something that my local compounding pharmacy prepares, works the best for my little one.


  • I have only ever used A&D for diaper rash!! It works SOOO great on my daughter! I also use the original kind for lots of other things too, like skin rashes or little scrapes and cuts she gets! It heals the cuts and skin irritations better than anything else! It’s the best!


  • Prevention with cornstarch, a&d, or naked butt. Treatment with dyprotex.


  • Definitely there’s nothing that can replace A&D.


  • We’be been using Desitin. And of course airing the butt whenever we could.


  • We started using a potty and elimination communication at 6 months old. And haven’t had any diaper rash ever since!


  • I have have tried everything on my daughters bottom. She was 5 weeks premature and was born the size of a 6 month old fetus so her skin was extra extra sensitive and when I used cotton wool to clean up her meconium she developed a terrible rash. I went through so many products and the doctors were also at a loss of what to do since their ointments made matters worse. Weeks later, after painfully and tearfully enduring and watching my poor child’s teenie weenie bottom suffer, I took matters in to my own hands and having tried everything…i took another chance, prayed to God and then tried Weleda’s Calendula nappy rash cream. Miraculously her rash cleared completely within a day and I was no longer a sad mummy and my babies bottom is still smiling :) I use it til this day and she hasn’t had a rash since. By the way mummies, i use it for the occasional breakouts that I get and it works wonders. Here’s to happy baby bottoms (and faces)! Thanks for reading :) xxxx


  • We love a&d products. My daughter also has eczema so to treat diaper rash we use a&d there is no burning or nasty smell. It goes on smoothly too.


  • Nothing better than A&D :)


  • Apply baby powder. My son hates cream, so we sprinkle powder after a POP to absorb the moisture and try to prevent needing the cream!


  • While I have tried every diaper rash ointment under the sun, i find that a thin layer of plain old triple antibiotic ointment works the best, then i use the diaper rash ointment to avoid getting the rash in the first place


  • Always make sure they are dry before putting on the next diaper!


  • A&D, desitin. Baby powder w/cornstarch works good too.


  • I’ve only used A&D I think it’s great would never use anything else as the rest do not work wow would really love love this especallu the changing bag as I need to buy a new 1 n dis looks perfect


  • I love A&D, but we use cloth diapers and can’t use it without ruining my diapers. I wish A&D would come out with an all natural version. I usually use either powder, or The MagicStick. The Magic Stick is great, especially on the go because it is a stick and you don’t have to get your hands all messy. Plus it smells incredible!


  • I think I’m to late it is so worth the try! I swear by a&d it’s my favorite never used anything else!!!!


  • The two best things I have been told to use are a&d,
    And baking soda!! So hopefully I won’t these work and I won’t
    Have to find something new myself!! :)


  • My sons doctor only recommends A&D on his behind! And it works! :)


  • My daily go to is A&D, but if that’s not doing the trick, a warm bath and nakey baby time is in order. After the air dry, slather on more A&D and we are good to go!


  • Used A&D with my first baby at every diaper change. Never got a rash. Will continue using it with my second due in august.


  • I havent tried A&D but Ive been using Desitin and it seems to work ok. My daughters nurse just told me that A&D is the best stuff to use.


  • I’m new to all this baby stuff and my baby boy is due in two weeks and I feel like he is going to have to be very patient with his mama and hopefully we will learn together about all the things and brands that are best for him!


  • Wow! Lots of goodies is right! I love babycenter, it’s so informative; I came on this site all the time when I was expecting my first baby, just to see how he was developing. I have a four month baby boy, I could sure use some of this stuff :)


  • i love ANYTHING calendula..but i know allot of people that use AD for tattoos!!! so i know its great too. and dont forget to let that baby bottom air out a bit!


  • A & D and baby powder!


  • I use butt paste! Works wonders rash is gone practically overnight!


  • I used A&D Original Ointment with my son. I had a free tube from Aafes (Military Exchange). I loved the layer it added to wick away moisture in my son’s diaper (and did’t leave me white tipped like Zinc based, which was all the other brands only option). The Original ointment also aided me (And Aiden) in nursing. My nipples were so sore that very night I’d add just a tiny bit to them and it helped restore them from the beating they were getting! My son was 28 days early, I bled for 32 hours before delivery, and I had a double yeast infection plus mastitis. Now it’s baby #2! No matter what challenges I face I can count on A&D to be my cure all. I still use the Original ointment on my feet when they get dry, around my hairline when I used to dye hair, and what’s great with petroleum is it can add moisture and wick away moisture too!


  • I love A&D diaper cream, I sware by it. I amways tell new mom’s to use only A&D. I have used every other brand out there and they don’t stand up to the comparibility of A&D diaper cream. I am Pregnant with my 7th child now and am due in August, and I will definitely be using A&D for her as well.


  • I am waiting for my first born in December… I’m most familiar with Desitin, but don’t know how it compares to other brands as far as effectiveness…


  • I used California baby the few times my baby had a diaper rash.


  • by little sweetheart chiranth of one year old thank me for using rash cream and diaper rather than using cloth….. he is happy with diaper and out of rashes…..uuummmma…..
