#DrSmiths Diaper Ointment Review

Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Facebook0Pin on Pinterest0Share on Google+0Share on StumbleUpon0Email this to someone

Having two toddlers with very sensitive skin, we are no strangers to frequent diaper rashes. It’s a problem that I would imagine most parents struggle with at some point in their child’s diaper wearing years. We’ve used many different ointments and creams in the past and finally found one that worked well for us. It wasn’t until we were introduced to Dr Smith’s Diaper Ointment that we found an even better alternative.

As you can see in the photo below, Dr Smith’s ointment has a very creamy and thick texture. After using it this past weekend overnight, we noticed how well it protected our toddler’s skin. By morning, most of the ointment was still on her bottom, creating a good barrier from overnight urinating that often irritates her skin.

In comparison to the diaper ointment we’ve used in the past, Dr Smiths has almost no scent at all. If you’re ever used the “paste” with the funky smell, you’ll know why this is such a pleasure.

Overall, our experience using Dr. Smith’s ointment has been excellent. In just a few applications we were able to heal our daughters current diaper rash and hopefully prevent even more in the coming weeks.

What You Need to Know About Dr Smiths

As parents, we often worry about the things we put inside the bodies of our children, but it’s also important to know what we’re putting on them. Knowing the ingredients of the products you use will help you make informed decisions. Your baby’s bottom is such a sensitive area of their body that it should be treated carefully.

Active Ingredient
Zinc Oxide 10%

Inactive Ingredients
Beeswax, lanolin, mineral oil, olive oil, paraffin wax, petrolatum, purified water, thymol iodide (mild antiseptic and fungicide).

3 Kids and Us Baby Care Tips

After having three little ones in my life, I’ve lived and learned my way through baby care. While I sure don’t know everything there is to know about babies, I am happy to share some of my tips.

Baby Mittens? No way. – Having a newborn is incredibly expensive and you’ll want to save money wherever possible. While infants do have sharp fingernails and often scratch their faces, you don’t need to buy baby mittens which will likely be eaten by the washing machine anyways. We often found that using infant socks made the perfect mitten. Once their nails become a little less flexible, you can also use a nail file to file them down instead of using the dreaded nail clippers.

Invest in a good swaddling blanket. Even if the nurses show you how to swaddle your baby a dozen times, chances are, after a few nights of sleep deprivation the knowledge will become nothing more than a blurry memory. While not all babies love to be swaddled, most do and you may even have to cater to their individual needs. Our youngest daughter only loved to be swaddled if she could have her left arm outside of the blanket. You can search YouTube for video demonstrations of swaddling techniques or purchase a specially designed swaddle blanket that is shaped uniquely and is easy to secure.

Sing a tune, even if you’re tone deaf. Your baby loves your voice even if American Idol doesn’t. One thing I always did consistently when my children were infants was hum the same tune to them when they were fussy. It’s something your baby will remember. My youngest is now almost 2 years old and she instantly recognizes the tune I hummed her as an infant. It’s a great distraction when she gets hurt, throws a temper tantrum or just needs a comforting shoulder before bedtime.

If you’re expecting, a new mother or even a grandmother looking to brush up baby care skills, you won’t want to miss an afternoon of fun and chatting as I join The Motherhood and Heloise, celebrity host and author (Hints from Heloise), as a co-host to discuss baby care tips and tricks at 1pm EST.

  1. to not forget the diaper bag when going out those first few weeks…I sure did

  2. my #1 baby care tip is to remember that they will not be small forever so we should love them and care for them because that grace period will soon be gone

  3. carrie rizzo says:

    I always have soothing music playing in the babys room so it helps the baby drift off to sleep

  4. My baby care tip – keep them in undies at least a couple of times a day after they have gone pee. The smallest undies (2T) will fit a three month year old.

  5. Sunnie says:

    Its been a while, but patting their bottoms and rocking with them was always helpful. I have never seen those pacificer wipes.

    Make it easier on yourself and don’t worry about buying Dreft or other baby detergent. Get some All Free & Clear (or another free & clear brand), and just do the baby laundry with the adult laundry. My sensitive little guy never had a skin problem with the Free & Clear, and it’s cheaper than Dreft anyday!

    My #1 baby care tip is that it’s impossible to spoil an infant. You cannot hold a baby too much or give too much attention! Crying is communication for “I need something” and leaving an infant to cry is avoiding figuring out how to fix the problem.

    As infants all of my children have loved the sunshine.
    Even on a cold day I will put the crib under the bedroom window so that my son can feel the sun on his body. It seems to be very soothing to him and helps him sleep so much better during naptime.

  111. tip – use dr. smiths!!! It is the best. Quickly resloves any redness and rash. I also make sure there is no excessive moisture when I am changing the baby’s diaper. I wipe with a cloth AFTER the baby wipe.

  112. My #1 tip is invest in a swing or bouncy chair. I work in a NICU and those usually work for even the fussiest babies!

    I don’t have kids (entering for my niece), but I’ve babysat and can say that to me, one of the most important things to do is just have chats with the baby. Singing is lovely, but it seems like for me, that was what always made them smile and also, go to sleep.
