What is the big secret to completely fighting off diaper rash? Yep, It’s coconut oil!!!
I have over 11 years of nanny experience. I have worked with dozens of kids and babies. Over the years I have used many of the diaper-rash remedies that the families I nannied for wanted me to use. Most of the creams, ointments & pastes are OK. However, I was not impressed.I was sure there had to be a NATURAL product that not only would help the existing diaper rash, but also work to prevent diaper rash from happening at all! Even something to improve the skin. Dare to dream!
I have used coconut oil for years in my own daily beauty regimen.The benefits are amazing for utilizing coconut oil for babies’ skin as well! Coconut oil is one of the most gentle, pure and healthy oils available! It’s wonderful for me, and also excellent for my baby, Harry! Not to mention it is organic, natural, has no preservatives or additives, dyes, or perfumes! And the smell is so delicious! It’s so real. When I was expecting my son Harrison, I knew I would plan to use coconut oil in our daily routine!
2. CRADLE CAP: When Harry was born, My husband and I were adamant in daily applying the coconut oil to his skin. Not only do we apply in the diaper area, but also all over his body. In addition to making diaper rash non-existent, it also completely cleared up his cradle cap as well.
My pediatrician recommended we use the baby brush to brush his hair after his bath, and then I applied a small amount of coconut oil to my fingers- let it melt a bit, then gently rub into his scalp. His cradle cap disappeared so quickly! A little bit goes a long way, especially when applied to the scalp. He now has the softest hair! And the coconut oil is actually moisturizing his natural tiny curls as well! Our friends & family are always complementing his baby-soft skin.
3. SKIN QUENCHING: We also swim a lot, it is such a relief to have a health & skin regimen we can rely on. We use Coconut Oil instead of any lotions, for the whole family! (Which often contain additives, perfumes, gels, and sometimes even silicon material– PLASTIC! Disgraceful! My Baby’s body would be absorbing all of that! I DO NOT WANT that for my family.) I choose health, simple elements, and I move towards a clean Organic lifestyle. It’s not as difficult as it sounds either! I know my baby, Harry Benefits so much from Utilizing Coconut Oil in his daily routine! It even quenches our skin so much after some bonding pool time, as well!
Coconut Oil is also so beneficial for night time! Moms feel so successful as a parent, when you’re baby starts to sleep through the night. However, I also know that means that he is in his diaper for 9+ hours while he sleeps. I knew I wanted to use a natural product that could not only moisturize his skin, but actually create a barrier between the wetness in his diaper vs. his skin- all night long! When I take him out of his crib in the morning, he never has any irritation or redness! I am so happy to keep listening to my gut, and do what I know is right for my little Harrison’s body and health.
4. ESSENTIAL OILS AND COCONUT OIL: Essential Oils, such as the high-quality ‘doTERRA’ brand, can provide such wonderful, clean and modern health benefits to you and your family! When an essential oil such as Lavender is combined with Coconut Oil, as a carrier oil, and applied to the body- it will have a very calming effect for your baby. And for your household as well! You can also diffuse Essential oils in your home! A great natural way to keep your home clean and infused with all of the great germ-fighting properties! There are hundreds of Essential Oils and amazing healing properties for your health! Especially for the modern Mama, trying to avoid prescriptions for every little thing.. Just my opinion 😉 I wanted to take back control of my own health! I Empowered myself with knowledge. To learn more about Essential Oils, purchasing, and how to use them in your home: click here.
