Hey parents! Don’t you hate looking down during diaper time just to see an angry butt pointed at you? All that red discomfort just begging for help!!
Yeah… me too… After scouring through countless diaper creams and ointments, disgusted by the ingredients, I decided that I needed to find a better way to care for my newborn son’s behind.
Armed with my experience from my lovely daughter (poor girl had more than her fair share of angry butt issues too), along with all the new things I’ve learned since embarking on my natural wellness journey, I came up with this little recipe that has helped nearly eradicate angry bums in our home…
Not just for angry baby butts… It also works great for adults too, if you’re experiencing any chaffing issues (or embarrassing sweaty areas or irritated skin)!!! ?
Small mixing bowl
Large dinner(Tbs) Spoon
4 oz Mason Jar
Mix all ingredients together and put in mason jar.
**Note** If it seems a bit too runny you can refrigerate it til you are ready to use it.
Start by getting all your supplies ready to go.
I’m a typical busy mom who doesn’t have a whole lot of time to be perfect with measurements (I’m sure you can relate). Instead of worrying about proper measurements, I’m a big fan of estimates! I use 2 heaping soup spoons (roughly 2oz) of coconut oil and 1 of corn starch, and mix them together until smooth.
You may be asking… why corn starch?
Because corn starch provides a light, dry barrier that helps protect your baby’s skin from too much exposure to wetness.
My favorite thing about this recipe is how long it lasts!
Since my son was born 15 months ago, we’ve gone through 2 jars of this!
Of course, the amount you’ll need to make or remake really depends on the amount you use and how often… but I am very satisfied with how long it has lasted for us and am sure you’ll enjoy using this recipe too!
