THE Downlow on Cloth Creams

One of many wonderful reasons that people love to cloth diaper is the reduction in skin irritation and diaper rash.  100% cotton is the softest thing for a baby’s bum and there are no chemicals or unnatural products in the diapers!  We at Green Diaper Babies (GDB) believe that this is the safest option for babies.  Our mothers love cloth because they rarely deal with red bums and unhappy babies.  

 
There are times to use diaper creams and we know they can be helpful in many instances, so here are some resources for you.
