Problem: Diaper rash is a reality for babies. There are no ifs, ands, or butts about it. Treating it is fairly simple, but parents end up using a cream or two to protect the rash location from continued exposure to bacteria and moisture (the cause of most rashes). With 10 diaper changes per day for however long it takes to cure baby's rash, parents are applying a lot of cream. You’re trying to fasten or secure their diaper with cream all over you hands, and honestly, it’s just a big, sticky mess.
Solution: The Baby Bum Brush is one of those little items you say to yourself, "I should have thought of that!" It's that simple and that useful.
What does it do?
Baby Bum Brush is a soft, flexible, silicone paddle-shaped "brush" that allows you to scoop diaper cream out of a tub (without using your fingers) and apply it to baby's bottom (again, without using your fingers). Wondering why you shouldn't use your fingers? Two very important reasons:
- You still have to secure baby's diaper. If you have cream on your hands, you're sure to get it on the outside of the diaper and then on baby's clothes. Then you've got oil stains everywhere and you can say bye-bye to your favorite cotton onesie.
- Your hands aren't clean. They're full of germs and bacteria. So, when baby's dealing with a rash, the last thing you want to be responsible for is adding more bacteria to their nether regions. Just be sure to wipe the brush down with a baby wipe after each use.
What Makes It Unique?
The bottom has a suction cup so you can easily apply baby's diaper cream and then stick the Baby Bum Brush to any surface — like the top of your changing table, or in my case, I stick it to the mirror hanging over my baby's dresser so it's always within reach.
Secondly, it comes in a regular size, which is over 8 inches long so parents can scoop all the way to the bottom of that Aquaphor container — and a mini size. Bonus: The mini has a travel case! You'll never have to be without an applicator on the go. Diaper rash is generally not terribly uncomfortable for baby, but you do want to make sure you're treating it around the clock — even if you're away from home. That's why the mini is a must-have.
