The Only Diaper Rash Cream that Worked on My Newborn

Updated on April 13, 2017

The Search for a Diaper Rash Cure

When my second baby was born, I got lucky. She had an amazing latch and starting nursing within 10 minutes of entering this world.

She ate and ate and ate… and I changed diaper after diaper after diaper.

So I guess it was no surprise that on Day 3, the diaper rash started.

My poor little baby’s butt was becoming completely raw. It wasn’t a lot, but it was enough to completely stress me out and it certainly caused a lot of pain for her.

I tried everything.

I cut out wipes. I used water and dabbed her dry with toilet paper. I let her air dry. I tried vaseline. I switched diaper brands.

At her one week appointment, I asked the pediatrician.

He said to try Desitin. If that didn’t work, I could experiment with other diaper rash creams if I wanted.

So I tried Desitin - no help. I tried Burt’s Bees - nothing. Butt Paste - nada.

She was the happiest baby you could imagine...until I would change her diaper. When that was happening, she would cry and cry. It was completely heartbreaking.

Finding the Miracle Cream

As is the case for most things, I scoured the internet looking for different remedies.

One cream kept coming up over and over again - Triple Paste.

I hadn’t heard of it and my doctor hadn’t brought it up, but I ordered it to give it a try...AND IT WORKED.

In fact, it was the only cream that worked, and to this day is still the only ointment that heals my baby’s diaper rash.

I’m not sure if it’s the fact that it’s medicated or the fact that it is really, really thick (I’m sure it’s probably both), but this stuff is a miracle cream.

Within one night I could see a difference and within 3 days, she was healed and stopped crying during diaper changes.

So if you’ve got a baby with really persistent diaper rash and nothing else has worked, give Triple Paste a shot. It was the only diaper rash cream that worked for us!

      Sometimes a persistent rash is fungal, not bacterial and that requires a different treatment. I got a prescription from my doctor that was quite expensive but really helped one of my kids who had chronic problems. It also helps to leave them without a diaper to let the area dry for part of the day.
