When my husband and I got married, I remember his mother telling me about some of the diseases that ran in his family and precautions. I wasn’t sure what to do with the information but I took it and stored it somewhere deep inside my brain.
When our first child was born, I admit I was a little shocked that she had such dry skin and so many problems with rashes. Even now, many years later, she deals with eczema problems. After first mentioning it to my mother-in-law, she said something like, “That’s right. That’s something that runs in the family.” If we’re going to be completely honest, I feel like that should have been on that long list of problems that run in my husband’s side of the family because it’s a big deal to me. Our baby’s skin gets so red and inflamed and I just want to make it all better immediately.
My poor babies get diaper rashes (and crazy amounts of dry skin) constantly. I’ve tried various things to stop the problem but my babies just can’t help but get diaper rashes. Being the worry wart mother that I am, every time there is a sign of something wrong, I go into panic mode and rush into my hall closet to try to find something to fix the problem. I know I scare everyone in the house with something not-too-scary like diaper rashes but they look so painful and I do not want my children feeling pain from diaper rashes. There are about a million other problems out there and I just do not want diaper rashes to be one of them.
Lucky for me, we have been able to try Weleda. A baby’s skin is five times thinner than an adult’s so it needs to be treated gently. The Calendula Diaper Rash Cream is Weleda’s best-selling baby product and provides fast and gentle relief for babies with diaper rash. It is organic and anti-inflammatory calendula extract. It helps soothe redness and inflammation while fair trade beeswax provides a breathable layer of protection to your baby’s bottom. The interesting thing about the Calendula Diaper Rash to me is that Weleda worked with German midwives and have made sure it does not contain any chemical fragrances or preservatives and that it instead provides a safe and natural way to treat irritation or diaper rash. Plus the baby’s skin feels soft, smooth, and protected.
My babies have all used cloth diapers and normally you cannot use diaper rash creams with cloth diapers because they create a layer of film and product that stops the cloth diaper from being able to soak up liquid as effectively but with Weleda’s Calendula Diaper Rash Cream, it is safe to use with cloth diapers! It is also great for children of any age.
