Once upon a time the only butt cream I was worried about was the firming kind, but these days I’m all about the nappy creams… (no not for me!). Who knew there was so many options, and that I would soon become a connoisseur of said creams.

I have chunky babies (I mean look at those thighs *all the heart eyes*) so a hard working barrier cream that also soothes and reduces redness is a must for us. I’ve used a number over the years and these three are my absolute favourite!



What They Say: Covitol® provides a thick, smooth barrier for long lasting protection. It helps relieve eczema, sunburn, cuts, scrapes, skin infections & nappy rash. Specially formulated with high levels of Cod Liver Oil, Zinc Oxide, Paraffin & Lanolin. Together they seal out wetness & germs to help skin irritations disappear quickly

What I Say: I was very happily using the Covitol as a barrier cream at night, it’s thick and provides great coverage with staying power. No redness after a full night in the nappy. BUT I was so impressed when I used it on some self inflicted scratches Bambino had decided to do (right before his party of course) and overnight they were mostly gone!

Little Innoscents Intensive Soothing Cream

What They Say: Not just for sore little baby bottoms, the Little Innoscents Intensive Soothing Cream is a nourishing organic topical application ideal for a range of stressful skin conditions. Offering healing Calendula Extract with organic Shea Butter Avocado and Aloe Vera.

What I Say: I love the Little Innoscents brand and use quite a few of their products, and the Intensive Soothing Cream is beautiful. I often use it during the day at nappy changes as it’s not a thick barrier cream, and removes all traces of redness after one application! I also pop it on those sore, red teething cheeks too.

Mater Mothers Nappy Balm

What They Say: Mater Nappy Balm is a silky smooth, exceptionally gentle cream ideal for nourishing red and delicate bottoms. This unique, soothing formula forms a protective barrier to repel wetness while still maintaining breathability and moisturising the skin, making for a drier, smoother bottom and a comfortable, happy baby.Mater Nappy Balm was formulated to replicate the moisture barrier qualities of the vernix—a naturally occurring barrier substance produced in-utero which coats and protects the baby before birth. This represents a breakthrough in nappy area care, in that the formula both protects the skin, and allows it to breathe.

What I Say: I love the this because it’s a barrier cream but it’s not super thick and gluggy, it removes all redness and is so easy to use. What I love MOST though is that proceeds from all Mater Mothers Products (including the nappies pictured above) help fund specialist life-saving care and research through Mater Little Miracles, Australia wide!
