(Yes, it’s true…another giveaway! After several years of no giveaways on this blog, we have two in as many weeks! So if you haven’t already, make sure to enter the giveaway for the eBook Real Fast Food — it closes tonight at midnight.)
Before you’re a mama, you don’t often think about things like diaper cream. You have no idea that diapers and their contents can become a frequent topic of thought and conversation. But lo and behold, once you have a little one, it becomes a very important subject. Especially if your baby has a tendency toward irritated skin and is prone to diaper rash.
Both of my babies struggle with that and even though using cloth diapers majorly cuts down on the irritants, they still regularly have some diaper rash pop up, especially when they start eating a lot of solids. With Cedar (who actually doesn’t deal with this anymore since he’s now almost completely potty-trained…YAY!) I tried so many different diaper creams to try and help his little bum! Straight coconut oil, different green salves, Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste…nothing seemed to work. The oil-based creams didn’t really do much at all and the zinc-based ones helped a little, but could never totally kick it. I didn’t want to resort to something that contained petroleum products and other chemicals since I definitely didn’t want that stuff on my baby’s skin, but I was getting desperate. But then, so thankfully, I discovered Graham Garden’s Tailfeathers Zinc Cream.
At first, paying $16 for a five ounce tub of diaper cream seemed a little expensive for me, but I took the plunge and haven’t looked back since. It is so worth every penny of that. Tailfeathers Zinc Cream has kicked every single rash I put it on. Plus all the ingredients are totally natural so I don’t need to worry about the fact that I slather it all over my babies’ sensitive parts. And, one of my favourite features — it comes in a tub so you can get every last bit out (and control how much you use), something that never happens with the stuff that comes in a tube.
And now, for the best part, Graham Gardens has very generously offered to give one of my readers a scented BabyBird Gift Basket. These lovely little baskets not only contain a tub of their amazing Zinc Cream, but also Graham Gardens’ BabyBird Powder, Body Oil and ButterBar. All you need to do is visit their website, look around and then come back here and leave a comment telling us which Graham Gardens’ product appeals to you the most and why. Giveaway closes on Wednesday, May 9th, at midnight PST.
This giveaway is now closed.
