I have been in childcare for so long that the children in the first family whom I worked for as a Nanny are now in college.
Last summer I began working for a new family with a newborn
( Also, I am so in love with the baby! Her baby smell and her tiny little toes are too adorable to resist.)
I can ramble on about a babies cuteness, but today we are here to talk specifically about baby's tushies.
If you are a new parent, you understand the limitless times you have to change a diaper in a day. It is definitely an around the clock full time job because we want their bottoms clean and healthy especially when they are newborns.
When I change diapers, I normally apply diaper cream. In this procedure I usually do the classic finger dip and slather move. Afterwards, I end up having to scrub and dig out my nail beds trying to get out the excess cream stuck under my finger nails and they have a strong smell, too. Sometimes I can still smell the zinc even though I washed my hands a few times.
But after learning about the diaper cream applicator, I was hooked. It is easy to use and more sanitary than using the classic dip and slather finger method.
Hello spatula and goodbye to finger dipping!
So, far I use Baby Bum. This product comes in two different sizes and is available in a variety of colors. Also, it offers a traveling case and the spatula has different sizes to accommodates your baby as they grow.
When I discovered this I told myself: "What? Why did I not think of that?"
Because Baby Bum is a Mommy invention which she created specifically for her child. Her newborn baby had GI irritation and acidic stool. So, if you are a parent with a child still in diapers you know what I mean. Those rashes hurt and uncomfortable for babies.
So lets save one baby tushie at a time.
Here are the list of diaper cream applicators out there today.
