*Some reviews:  "I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your diaper rash salve for sensitive skin.  I have used just about everything for my 11 week old daughters diaper rash including 3 prescriptions, and your product is the only thing that has cleared it up!  She has had this rash since she was 2 weeks old, it was even bleeding at one time.  I am also using the salve on her twin brother.  I love that it is cloth diaper safe!  Thank you!"

"A BIG THANK YOU to Northern Essence!!! Your diaper rash salve is AMAZING! My poor son would always break out in a diaper rash and nothing would work, I did some research and found out about your rash was the best decision I have ever made!!! Since I have been using it he hasn't gotten a rash! It's a miracle in a container! I tell all the moms I know about it and will continue to do so! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!"

"Wanted to let you know, well you probably already know, how wonderful your product is!!!!!  Last night, my daughter had gotten a horrible rash and I used the Diaper Rash Salve for the first time and this morning,  Her cute bottom was back to normal.  She is my fourth child and I wish I knew about your products sooner,  they definitely  make cloth diapering easier!!!!  Thanks for making such fabulous products,  I WILL BE BACK!!!!"

"I just wanted to say I love your products. I started with the wipes solution from a diaper site and was so impressed I had to get some different things from your site. With my last order I got a sample of diaper salve and it came just in time. It got rid of the rash fast and smelled a lot better than the stuff I got from the store. I'm giving some of your stuff as baby shower gifts and I will definitely tell my friends about your products."

"I just wanted to let you know I received this rash salve and love it! I got it b/c it's ok to use with cloth. He's been sick and was getting a little red, but this cleared it up in less than a day. I like the fact that I can use it just when it's needed - the typical diaper rash cream seems addictive, like you need to continuously use it."

"My son is teething so badly and has had terrible recurring diaper rash but after one day of using the wipes solution and the diaper rash balm. the rash is all but gone.  Thank you so much for everything, great service, great products.... just love it."

" I just wanted to say that I absolutely love your diaper salve and the better butter cream.  My daughter's pediatrician diagnosed her with a yeast rash and prescribed an ointment for her to use that did not work apart from the fact that I was afraid to use it with my cloth diapers, so I bought some disposables instead!  I had ordered your items and eagerly began using them the day they came in.  My daughter's rash cleared right up when I started using the salve exclusively, and has yet to reappear!  I'm thrilled that I can use an all natural product and that it works so well, even with my cloth diapers. Thank you for creating a product I am happy to recommend to all my mommy friends!"

Better Butt(er) Cream

Finally a diaper cream that you can use when your baby has a yeast infection, that will NOT irritate it!  Safe to use on cloth diapers.  Contains no Essential Oils, only conditioning oils and butters including:  Hemp Butter, Shea Butter, Meadowfoam Oil and many more.  We have added Grapefuit Seed Extract in it, then we triple whip it to give it a fluffy appearance and super smooth texture.   Fragrance free.

*Packaged in your choice of 2oz or 5oz Tubs.

*Some reviews:   "I just wanted to thank you for your better butter cream!  I don't know WHAT I'd do without it!  My daughter has a SUPER sensitive bum, and for some reason the your salve will help keep a rash away to a degree, but it won't take it away and if I don't get at least one dose of cream on there a day instead of salve, as well as a good dose at night, she will be all red.  
I just wanted to tell you she's just started going into spit up and drooling overload, and I've been doing my best to keep her clean and dry but I guess not good enough.  It's tough because she's got some serious triple chin action!  Anyway, yesterday I was alarmed when we noticed way under her chin where you can't see was bright red and spotted other places.  It looked awful.  We gave her a good, thorough bath last night and I thought, why not??  Couldn't hurt?  So last night while she slept and I knew she wouldn't be getting the area wet for some time, I put a little better butter cream on it.  I WISH I took before and after pics!  Unbelievable!  The red is almost all gone!  Just a little pink in a much smaller area today and no spots!  That stuff is amazing!  Thanks so much!  I don't know what I'd do without it!"

"I just wanted to say thank you for your product (Better Butt(er) cream).  We battle chronic yeast rashes with my 15 month old and Nystatin creams don't seem to be working anymore.  After using your product for 2 days the latest rash is gone!  I love the feel of it, it is so silky unlike most diaper creams."

"I love, love, love your Better Butter Cream and would love to carry it in my shop. My daughter had horrible yeast issues after prolonged antibiotic use. It was the ONLY thing that soothed her bottom."

"I just wanted to give you RAVE about your Better Butter Cream.  I have been using it on my sons yeast rash for about a week and his rash has finally gone away after almost 2 months. Thank You!! Thank You!!!"

"I love, love, love your diaper cream!  My baby had a horrible yeast rash we couldn't get rid of for months, and your Better Butter cream got rid of it in less than a week!  Thank you so much."

"I just wanted to write to tell you how much I love your better butter cream.  My daughter has very sensitive skin in the diaper area, and this cream clears it up every time!  We especially have problems after a round of antibiotics and a yeast rash develops.  This cream works as well or better then the medicated over the counter and prescription creams.  I love that it's all natural and very safe for her to use.  Thank you very much!"

"When I found your company I was looking for something to help clear up and stop my daughter’s nasty diaper rash. We were to the point of having to use strong antibiotic cream, yeast cream and over-the-counter diaper rash cream. This was causing serious problems with her cloth diapers. I found you by chance… Your Better Butt(er) Cream cleared up her rash within a week, even after treating her with medicated products for weeks. Your Diaper Rash Salve keeps her rashes under control. I use the Salve during the day and lather her bottom up with Cream at night. She loves her “cream”.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"

" I just wanted to stop by and say THANK YOU!!!! I recently bought your better butter cream, shampoo bar the one for scalp problems and I LOVE them both!! After almost a year of battling yeast infections that didn't go away with otc creams or even oral yeast medications -I was ready to cry!! Our little guy had such a horrible rash from the yeast it was cracked and bleeding and after 2 and a half days of your cream - it's almost completely gone!!!! The shampoo bar I've only used once and already today I don't have near as itchy a scalp! We'll be coming back for more fantastic products!!!

    Diaper Dawgs™

    Mom's Newest Best Friend in Cloth Diapering!

    Diaper Dawgs™ were created by a mom for moms and dads. The founder decided to scratch her own itch of making laundry day a little less gross when she glanced over and saw her silicone kitchen mitt hanging on the oven door and thought, “I wish I had a mitt small enough for my fingers to grab these wet inserts!”

    Diaper Dawgs make cloth diapering…

    •More sanitary when handling soiled cloth diaper inserts by reducing direct contact with fecal matter that can find a hiding place under fingernails

    •Quicker to launder by allowing mom to reach in confidently and firmly to fetch soiled inserts from cloth diaper covers and avoid playing the “fingertips-only” or “shake-my-cover-till-it-falls-out” time-wasting games

    •More eco-friendly by eliminating the use of excess paper and disposable plastic bags that mom used when scraping soiled inserts

    •More enjoyable with fun-sized dogs, sold in colorful companion packs, that mom doesn’t have to hide behind closed doors ­– the perfect “companions” for the cloth-diapering mom!

    Diaper Dawgs composition are much like their oven mitt counterparts. The difference comes in Diaper Dawgs’ unique sizing. They are patent-pending, flexible, slip-on silicone gloves that act as barriers between fingers and soiled inserts when separating pocket-style or all-in-two cloth diapers either after a diaper change or when sorting the dirty diaper pail for laundering. Have you ever cringed while touching your baby’s dirty cloth diapers? You need a pack of Diaper Dawgs™!

    *Diaper Dawgs™ come packaged as pairs!  Your choice of Blue/Green or Pink/Purple Pair.
