  • We used to brown flour, put it in a clean, dry baby food jar and poke holes in the lid to sprinkle it on him after diaper changes. We never really had a problem with diaper rashes except when the weather was very warm. We also used to put vaseline on him after diaper changes when he didn't have diaper rash.

  • * 1/2 cup cornstarch baby powder or liquid baby powder
    * 2 large containers petroleum jelly or creamy jelly
    * 3 cups water
    * 1/4 cup calamine lotion
    * 1/4 cup baby lotion
    * 2 vitamin E squeezed into mixture (optional)
    * 3 drops of tea tree oil (optional)

    Heat mixture on low heat. You may have to add more water. When mixture is melted with no lumps it's ready to pour into containers. If you have lumps add more water. Good luck and enjoy.
