This cream does exactly what is says it will do - a Barrier Cream that protects and soothes. It is also safe to use consistently. I used it as a protection cream practically every night for my daughter and she RARELY got diaper rashes! And when/if she did it was ALWAYS mild and she never reacted to them. It also lasts a long time!! It took me almost a year to go thru one tube!
I put a little dab of this on at the first sign of redness and he's been free of diaper rash for his (almost) 8 months.

No Diaper Rash Yet!
We use this every time we change our little one's diaper and he has yet to have any irritation from diaper rash. He's almost a month old and we have been using since he was born, and he goes through 12-15 diapers a day. I think those who did not like this product may not be using it frequently enough as this is meant to be a barrier and help PREVENT diaper rash. Although it's a little pricey, it's worth the money! We go through a tube about every 2-3 weeks - a little bit goes a long way.
I normally use another brand that we love and had this in my diaper bag. We went out of town and forgot to pack our old faithful so we resorted to using this for the weekend. What a mistake, don't bother with this diaper rash cream. It's very liquidy and it was as if the baby did not have a barier on. In fact he got a rash, it was as if we did not put anything on him.
