Using Diaper Creams with Cloth Diapers

I love Earth Mama Angel Baby® products, I have purchased them with my own money, I have not received any products for review. I am sharing this information with you simply because I love their products and want to share the love! Affiliate links are included in this post.

I’ve mentioned before that there are items that go beyond the actual diaper when you use cloth diapers. It can be overwhelming and finding out that you can’t use the traditional brands of diaper rash creams can be stressful and you may choose to use disposables during a rash or end up switching to disposables all together because your baby is prone to rashes.

I’m here to let you know, that there are cloth diaper safe rash creams that work just as well, if not better, than the traditional rash creams such as Desitin, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, and A&D Ointment. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these rash creams if you are using disposable diapers, a flushable insert, or flushable liner to protect your cloth. But if you are using cloth right up against the bum, these rash creams can be very difficult to get out of your cloth and can lead to leaking problems.

We’ve tried a variety of different cloth safe rash creams, each having their benefits, but it wasn’t until I tried Angel Baby Bottom Balm by Earth Mama Angel Baby® did I really understand what it meant to have a rash cream that was not only safe for cloth diapers, but worked wonders!

I’ll be honest, we’ve been really lucky with rashes in our house, but there have been a few rashes that have been stubborn and just didn’t want to go away. Before trying Angel Baby Bottom Balm, I would struggle with the other cloth safe creams I had and would end up just switching to disposables and using A&D Ointment, but even that wasn’t working for us and it was costing us so much money to be using disposables.

I started to do more research on cloth diaper safe creams and discovered Earth Mama Angel Baby® at Wegman’s. What really intrigued me about their Bottom Balm is that it has a “blend of naturally antibacterial and antifungal organic herbs” with tea tree oil. This pulled me in because we were at one point questioning whether or not we were dealing with a yeast rash. Tea tree oil is a known killer of yeast and the added herbs that were antifungal and antibacterial meant that the Bottom Balm would not only treat a yeast rash, but it would also help to prevent future yeast rashes.

The best part? As soon as I applied the Angel Baby Bottom Balm to M’s rash, the next diaper change we finally saw results! His poor little bum was less inflamed and less red. By the next day the rash was completely gone, no remnants of his rash. I have deemed the Angel Baby Bottom Balm a miracle cure for a tough rash! 

We’ve always used a barrier cream on M before bed, otherwise, we don’t really use rash creams, unless there’s a rash of course. Angel Baby Bottom Balm is the first ointment I reach for now, I’m not a huge fan of the smell (but I’m not a fan of Tea Tree oil scent), but it’s a fairly pleasant smell (much better than traditional zinc oxide rash creams). It goes on smoothly, wipes off easily, is USDA Organic, and it’s cloth diaper safe. It’s pretty much the perfect rash cream.

  1. So far, what I’ve found works best for US is just using Corn Starch! But the only time my son gets a Diaper Rash is if he’s eaten something and his poop like, instantly burns his bum! D: But other then thay he hasn’t had any! I’ve gotten lucky.


    1. I’ve never tried corn starch, but like you, we’ve had very few issues. We do have to use something as a barrier at night though, he’ll get red if we don’t have something on him to protect.
