Anytime my kids are hurt or sick it’s literally the saddest thing ever for me. Like most mom’s, I can’t STAND it! I feel so helpless. So you better believe that anytime I find ways to help prevent or fix it, I’m def going to. I’ve spent hourzzzz of my life mending scrapes and bruises, in steam showers with stuffy noses and coughs, and even spent more money than necessary on ice packs with cute characters on, because obviously it doesn’t feel as cold if it’s cute. Then there’s diaper rash. One of the worst.
I remember a time when Macy (who is now 8 and I’m sure is thrilled to have this story out on the Internet lol) was a baby and ate something that didn’t agree with her. You guys. The diaper rash was INSANE. She was crying, I was crying, we were all crying. The ONLY thing that worked that night was DESITIN the maximum strength formula. Within 12 hours it was all healed up! My mom is the one who told me about it. She’s always said it’s the only thing on the market that works that fast and she was right! So I’ve been a loyal customer ever since….8 years and counting!
Through 3 kids, eating transitions, long road trips where I couldn’t stop to change diapers right away and stomach bugs, I’ve never let the DESITIN run out! No joke, I have one in Gia’s (the baby) room upstairs, one in my room (ya know, so I don’t have to walk all the way up there each time lol) and one in the diaper bag.
My other tips for treating diaper rash:
-Keep the area as dry as possible. Check the diaper every 2 hours or less and change it right away if it’s dirty!
-Don’t irritate the skin anymore than necessary, be very gentle when changing their diaper and when wiping them. Sometimes I even use use a warm wet washcloth if it’s a pretty bad case.
-Apply the DESITIN as often as needed, especially at bedtime. I can’t tell you how many times I sent my kids to bed with a horrible diaper rash after applying DESITIN and they woke up with ZERO rash! That’s less than 12 hours (well depending on how long your kids sleep)!

I’m so excited to share this product with you guys! I was able to nurse Gia until her first birthday…I really wanted to and was so glad it worked out! BUUUTTTTT I set aside one feeding a day for someone else…her dad, a big sister, herself once she started holding her own bottle…whoever. I Just needed a minute. A lot of times it was pumped milk but there were times we were traveling or I had her in nursery at church and I gave her formula. I wasn’t able to nurse my other 2 girls as long as Gia and I would have been buying a ton of these bottles like crazy. This company has made formula bottles so quick and easy! I use this for Gia several times a week and I’m obsessed! This would make an awesome baby shower gift!

You make the bottle before you leave the house and with one push of a button the formula drops into the water, you shake it up and done and done. Gia is IMPATIENT to say the least (for those of you that know her…that scream is so serious when she’s hungry) so this bottle is perfect for her. I have my 7 year old shake these up and give to her in the backseat when we are on road trips or out running errands!
Ok, so here’s how it works:
Put the desired amount of formula in the bottom container and put the little shaker ball on top. You will press the shaker ball down and the bottom of the bottle to make a suction.
You will put the top of the bottle on, unscrew the nipple and fill up with however much water you need.
When you are ready to use, you will press this heart on the bottom of the bottle and the suction releases the shaker ball and formula, shake, then feed to make the baby stop screaming 🙂
I have been using this bottle for several months now and I’ve not had it leak on me one time. I wash it in the sink, I havent’ put it in the dishwasher yet.
