I’ve seen some nasty diaper rash in my day (thankfully those days are over). My only solution was bare buns for awhile, but sometimes you got to put a cloth diaper on the rash covered bum to head out of the house.
Many parents rely on diaper rash creams and talc, but the solution to diaper rash is much easier and cheaper in the long run if you use cloth wipes.
Bummas has the solution! What are Bummas? Bummas are:
Bummas are small soft, luxurious baby-sized cloths made especially for drying baby bottoms, as well as blocking those surprise squirts. And with a little douse of water, they can also replace wet wipes for clean up of sensitive bums. They are small enough to conveniently carry on the go and durable enough to wash over and over again and won’t pill shrink or fade. We think you will find Bummas to be an indispensable item in your diaper changing regimen.
Of course, Bummas was founded by parents Casey and Randy Schwartz (who else would be smart enough to come up with a simple solution to diaper rash and disposable wipes?) Bummas:
- Eliminates the use of talcum powder.
- 100% Cotton – Woven Velour Terry Cloth.
- Variety of color combinations for nursery themes.
- Handy 5” x 7” size.
- Durable. Just throw them in the washing machine and use them again.
- Won’t pill, shrink, or fade.
- They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond!
I did a very similar thing when my children were little. As required for my homebirth, I had about twenty washcloths when my children were born. These washcloths became my wet and dry wipes; however, the washcloth fabric was much rougher than Bummas velour terry cloth. It seems like if parents are going to go the extra step and use cloth diapers, they should also use cloth wipes and avoid unecessary creams, powders, and ointments when possible.
