The diaper cream that FINALLY worked for Chloe:
Mix Desitin with cornstarch until it is VERY thick.
We tried several other recipes from the doctor and none worked like this. It is not cloth-diaper safe, but we used liners or disposables for a short time.
I meant to say, keep adding the cornstarch until it is VERY thick. You will end up using a lot of cornstarch.
1/2 tube of A&D ointment
1/2 tube of Desitin Cream
1T. of Malox or Mylanta
1T. of triple antibiotic ointment
*mix together & there you go!
Does the mixture for butt cream have to be refrigerated?
1t? What is t measurement t meaning
Lowercase "t" typically means teaspoon and an uppercase "T" typically denotes Tablespoon.
When you say 1/2 a tube of A&D ointment and destine cream.. how big is the tube? How many ounces? THanks!!
I am an RN by trade, when My son got the rota virus, I went to the books and developed my own butt paste that cleared his diaper rash in a matter of a couple hours.
and triple antibiotic ointment
a heaping teaspoon of each onto wax paper, or in a simple sanwich baggie for on the go;
mix until completely combined.
let sit for five minutes, then applied to affected area...
Promise of results within 2 hours and fully cleared up in 24 hours.
total cost is about $6 to make a full batch, but well worth it, and it can be stored at room temperature or in the fridge. shelf life is about 2months on a full batch. Just be sure to give it a good smoosh before reuse.
