Sometimes our crunchy remedies just don’t cut it.  This is what happened to me recently.  Charlie has been teething and getting some awful diaper rashes.  I usually use a blend of coconut oil, lavender and tea tree oil if I am out of a good, crunchy product.  Well, my magical potion was not working at all.  My poor baby’s little booty was all red and sore, so I broke out the big guns.  I pulled out my tube of Desitin.  Now the Desitin pretty much ALWAYS clears up a rash over night, but I’m not a fan of the ingredients and Charlie screams bloody murder when I apply it to his rashy area.

I was determined to find something that was safe AND effective so I went on the hunt for a new bum rash product.  I came across the Women of the Wildwood shop where I found the Wild Child Bum Balm.  The Bum Balm is made from a mix of herbs and oils that work to reduce redness and inflammation while soothing your little one’s sore bum.  It comes in a big tin with an easy to open screw on lid.

Now I didn’t expect any miracles, but I was quite surprised at what has happened when I use it.  First off, my 19 month old loves the phrase “bum balm” and repeats it every time I pull it out.  He actually LAUGHS when I rub it onto his rash.  This means it tickles and doesn’t burn, hurting him more.  That is a HUGE plus!!  There’s really nothing worse than knowing your baby is crying out in pain.  Another bonus is that it smells amazing!  I really can’t stand the smell of Desitin.  It’s so yucky!

I bet you are wondering if it works, right?  Yeah, that’s always what you’re wondering when you read my reviews!  The truth is, while it didn’t 100% clear up a rash overnight like the Desitin, it cleared up about 75% and I felt so much more confident using it.  The best part is, you can use it for so many other things, such as dry hands, lips or feet!  And you won’t smell like stinky Desitin for the rest of the day!  YAY!  It’s even safe for cloth diapers so you don’t have to worry about damaging your precious fluff!!

Be sure to check out the rest of their products in the shop such as the Eczema Bar and Arrowroot Powder!!

  1. I have always used Desitin for diaper rash. It seems to work the best because it coats the skin so the rash can’t start in the first place

  2. I always use Desitin diaper rash cream! It has always worked the best but I haven’t really tried anything different. This would be a great product to test out and try something new!

  3. I don’t like Desitin- it’s too thick and gooey. With my boys, we use a brand called Corona. It’s a lanolin based antiseptic cream that works well as an all=around healing salve.
