Right before Girl Wonder was born, I made sure to visit Skin Deep to find a diaper cream that had a “safe score” rating for it’s ingredients, just to have it handy in case it was needed. Not surprisingly, many “popular” brands didn’t have a rating I was comfortable with. Talc and powder were both items I didn’t purchase due to current findings that it can get in the air and therefore into little lungs.
Thankfully, Girl Wonder has never had a really bad diaper rash, but she does suffer from minor irritation, so I’ve used diaper cream on occasion.
Over the past few weeks, though, I’ve had to opportunity to try out a product that has to be the “safest” and “eco-friendly” way to take care of diaper issues. Bummas were developed by parents who’s own son suffered greatly from diaper rashes.
Bummas cloths can simply be used with water to wipe little bums and just as they are to dry them. This eliminates the need to go through hundreds (if not thousands!) of commercial wipes, and therefore never puts delicate skin in contact with synthetic chemicals and keeps non-biodegradable wipes out of landfills. Bummas can also be used with little boys to block “surprise squirts”!
- 100% cotton
- soft cloths made of naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial terry cloth
- 5″ x 7″ in size.
- won’t pill, shrink, or fade.
- come in colorful themed combinations with 10 in a pack.
- will not shrink or fade.
- are made in California, USA.
After two weeks of using Bummas, I saw a noticeable difference in Girl Wonder’s irritations. Who knew that something so simple could make such a huge difference.
