Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm

Posted

Pros: seems to help

Cons: price and availability

First off, this balm contains shea butter which separates out if heated and cooled too fast (like in shipping). They do not just throw all of the ingredients into the pot without mixing them. If you get small beads of shea butter you can redissolve them by gently reheating the balm (in a sunny window for instance) and slowly cooling it. You should just ignore the reviews that mention this as an issue. The only things I don't like about this cream is that it is a bit more expensive than the other non-zinc diaper creams out there and I cannot buy it locally so I need to stay on top of our supply and order more in time to be shipped before we run out.

 

My baby is now ten weeks old and she started sleeping through the night on a regular basis several weeks ago. We really hadn't had any problems with diaper rash but now that she spends the entire night in one diaper, it has become a problem. I'm working my way through the non-zinc diaper creams because we cloth diaper and the zinc makes my baby's skin peel. Unfortunately it was only a zinc cream that seemed to prevent the rash during the night so we were having to use disposables when she went to sleep. Last night I decided to take a chance on the EMAB bottom balm to see if it would work. Generally when I have used a non-zinc cream, she wakes up with a diaper rash (or a worse case of the rash). This morning she looked as good as when she went to sleep (almost 100% rash free). I'm finally hopeful that we've found a diaper cream that will take the place of the zinc barrier creams. I'll update this in another few weeks if this just happened to be a fluke.

Pros: Its natural, works ok

Cons: Smells bad, not too effective

This diaper rash ointment was ok. I wasn't too impressed with it. It worked for a diaper rash that wasn't too bad, but didn't work for the diaper rashes that were a little worse. It has a really strong mediciney smell. Over time it got these little hard balls that formed in it.

Pros: Effective

Cons: Strange feel

I got a sample of this product and really think that it works pretty darn good.  I don't have any little babies anymore.  My youngest is 9 y/o.  Well, she got a little heat rash on her thigh so I put some of this on it.  She said that the rash felt better right away.  It also cleared up the rash very quickly.

The ointment is strange in that it has little grains in it.  I thought that it had sepereated out but it spread on very well.  The grains disappeared when it was applied.

I used this on various rashes since that first use and have been very pleased with this product.  I'm sure that it would work great on a diaper rash.

Pros: great ingedients

Cons: $10 for 1 ounce- ouch

We have been consistantly out of town for the past several weekends for holiday things and for part of this week for thanksgiving. We use disposables when out of town and my 17 month old has developed redness/soreness all over his little bottom.

 

I just remember that I got this in the huddler contest a while ago and got it out and opened it. The first thing I noticed was it smell is similar to another balm I make. So that is comforting. Upon inspecting the ingredeints (that I am happy to report are fully listed) I can see why it smells so similar.

 

The consistancy of this product is very interesting as it does not appear they mix the ingredients together as all liquids. The solid oils appear to be seperate in the mixture as hard little pellet like spots that of course melt on contact with skin.

 

Baby's skin is much less red and looks much less irritated. Baby also didn't seem to mind the last diaper change as much, so that tells me it feels better too. Yeah for this product! ;-)
