We planned to use cloth diapers and wipes with our son and thought this would make a good solution to use with bamboo wipes in lieu of store produced wipes. Unfortunately the cloth diaper service went out of business, so using and washing cloth wipes on their own seemed like a lot of work. Fortunately, our son has not had a lot of problems with diaper rash so we have not found that we needed any "high performance" type of diaper rash remedies. On the rare occasion he has gotten irritated, particularly when he is teething or after a bad stomach bug. We have tried some of the thick creams, which worked fine, but always seemed so messy for the person applying them. Plus, the creams get into the crevices and are difficult to clean, especially after a dirty diaper. We had a bottle of the California Baby diaper area wash lying around and began to use it instead of the cream. The spray seems to be just as, if not more, effective than any of the creams we used without any of the mess.
