Safe to use on CDs?

DD has had a rash since birth (4 weeks old) so her pediatrician had me pick-up a compounded cream of Aquaphor, Maalox, and cornstarch from the pharmacy to use as a barrier and prescribed hydrocortisone cream to use twice a day. Are these safe to use while CDing or do I need to buy disposables?

i don't think that is safe, you could try a disposable liner.

What else have you tried for the rash? I really like GSE for rashes, 10-15 drops per oz in distilled (or at least filtered) water. (use with cloth wipes or papertowel - something to can dip in or sm spray bottle). It really cleared up the rashes for us. I also like to use lanolin on bum (like what you get for nipples when bf) that is cloth safe.

Other than that I use what we use on our bodies which is 3pt Sunflower seed oil (or extra virgin olive oil) to 1pt caster oil (for healing properties), also cloth safe.

Good Luck

I totally forgot about disposable liners. I think we already have some.
We use cloth wipes w/ plain water. I added baby shampoo to the water to see if that would help more than the plain water but no luck. I've used coconut oil, lanolin, cj's butter, and even talc-free powder-none have helped. We change hourly or sooner if we notice she's had a BM. I've also been bathing her nightly this last week to see if that would improve things but it hasn't.

Since I just ought the creams, I'll try those using disposable liners and see if they work. If not, I'll try your suggestions.

Thanks!

Good Luck. I think GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) is about the best thing ever!
