I received my sample of Diaper Lotion Potion Spray just in time. It’s no secret to many people that talk to me “in real life” that we’ve been battling a terrible blistery rash for the better part of four months now. I had asked everyone I know for recommendations on what I could use to get rid of this diaper rash!
It’s just the honest truth–cloth diapering just isn’t rainbows and butterflies for all of us!
You’ve gotta pick your battles, right? Well, my battle is some sort of mix between ammonia build up, sensitivity to store bought wipe solution, hard water bull-crap, and a potential (but, I’m pulling for it not being this one) suede cloth allergy. We’re still trying to find the dirty, mean culprit of our issues! Unfortunately, this last time–just when I thought we had fixed our diapers–the blisters came. In one single day, my poor baby’s bum went from mostly-healed from our last breakout to sad, open, blisters.
While we packed up our trusty (or maybe not-so-trusty anymore–but hopefully re-trusty in the future) diaper stash, composed of 100% suede-cloth lined diapers, we pulled out our gDiaper hybrids and sprayed on the Lotion Potion! I think I’m in love – this stuff helped give my little man some instant relief from his poor hiney woes. While it is cloth diaper safe, I still like to treat our rashes while using either a diaper liner or a disposable insert–especially since our diapers seem so finicky! It’s just a good practice to line your diapers with a liner of some sort when you’re using a new diaper cream (I’ve heard Viva paper towels actually serve this purpose very well!).

It contains absolutely NO parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances. The product goes on smoothly and moisturizes skin without leaving a greasy residue.” – Diaper Lotion Potion
The first thing I noticed while spritzing my little man’s sore bum with this product was the awesome smell. I love lavender and received a sample of the Lavender and Tea Tree Essential Oils type. Being that it is comprised mostly of oils, it was nice not rushing to the bathroom or using one of our wipes to remove any that got onto my fingers while spritzing–as it works just as well as a moisturizer!
A sort of funny thing about our Diaper Lotion Potion Spray samples, though, is that I can never find them when I need them! We have to dig around endlessly to find them. Why? The little guy loves to hold them. He’ll carry one of the bottles around all afternoon, and then I completely lose track of where he puts it! I know it has little to do with the product, but it’s just so funny how attached to these bottles he is.
I’m definitely happy to have a product like Diaper Lotion Potion helping us through this crazy diapering situation. While I continue to find the problem behind our diaper woes, I’m glad Diaper Lotion Potion has been helping relieve the pain from our trial-and-error.
