  • Cornstarch. When my daughter was a few months old she got a really nasty diaper rash and my mother in law kept insisting cornstarch. I being the "more expensive is better" went and bought every single cream/med you could. I even let her be diaperless for two days. No avail. After mountains of laundry and sanity later, I finally gave in and tried cornstarch. Worked like a charm. Since then I've had another child and just as a barrier I'd couple it w/ vaseoline or desitine but always cornstarch.

  • Gold Bond Baby Powder works wonders. It's cornstarch powder with zinc oxide added. Worked wonders.

  • Have you considered switching to cloth diapers? Some children are allergic to disposables.
