Diaper Hacks: "tightening" too-big disposables, ultimate rash cream, olive oil as wipe alternative
Sandy sent in three great diaper tips:
1) If your child has outgrown the absorbancy of one size, but doesn't yet physically fit into the next size, you end up with "stuff" leaking out the leg holes. You can fix this by fastening the velcro just below the picture on the front, instead of right over the picture. That way, it takes up the slack, and you don't get as many leaks out the leg holes.
2) A friend of mine gave me her doctor's recipe for the ultimate diaper rash cream. Mix a tube of Desitin, a tube of bacitracin, and a tube of anti-fungal cream (lotrimin) together. It works like magic! In fact, we call it "magic goop."
3) When your child has diaper rash, regular wipes can be very painful. A much gentler alternative is to put some olive oil on a kleenex. No more screams of pain with each wipe!
