I’ve written previously about my favorite cloth diaper-friendly rash ointment, and about some great cloth diapering accessories, but I’ve neglected to talk about how helpful it is to have cloth-friendly diaper rash treatments on-hand (even when you don’t have diaper rash present). Today I’m showcasing my favorite cloth diaper-friendly barrier ointment. While Grandma El’s is both a remedy and great for prevention, I have typically just used it on the preventative side as a barrier ointment.

As I wrote before, when D got a horrible rash early on, I scrambled to order cloth-friendly creams. While we ended-up having to use disposable diapers with heavy duty zinc creams, once our cloth-friendly options arrived, I was happy to ditch the sposies and go back to cloth.
When we returned to cloth, I was really paranoid. At a few weeks old, I could tell that the rash was painful and did not wish to have it return once we were able to clear it up. This is where Grandma El’s was a lifesaver! There are times when you just want a heavier-duty cream/ointment that is going to protect your little one until their next diaper change, and is safe to use with your diapers. In the cloth world, Grandma El’s is it.

As you can see in the above photo, while Grandma El’s is an ointment, it goes on thick like a (barrier) cream. We’ve been having some rash issues recently, so I put a nice layer of this on with D’s nighttime diaper, to offer wetness protection throughout the night. Grandma El’s is great for all-day use as well.
