Bummis Liniment for Cloth Diaper Bums
Liniment has become a must have product for cloth diapering families, so when Bummis came out with their very own liniment I had to try it! If you haven’t heard about liniment yet, I’m about to rock your cloth diapered bum changing world right here. Liniment is a cleansing product designed to clean baby bums. Think of it as a cleansing milk of sorts. Liniment has all kinds of benefits beyond simply providing baby with a nice clean bum. Let me introduce you to Bummis’ all new Liniment and explain what makes it so great.
Bummis Liniment is a lotion designed to be used to cleanse a baby’s bum during a diaper change. In terms of its consistency, it reminds be of a rich body lotion. Totally unscented and fragrance free, Bummis Liniment is cloth diaper safe, helps to prevent diaper rash, and hydrates and protects baby’s skin. What does Bummis Liniment feel like on the skin? It’s a smooth lotion that rubs onto the skin easily and wipes off well with a cloth wipe or wash cloth. Once the liniment has bee wiped off the skin, you’re left with skin that feels really soft and not greasy. The beeswax in the Bummis Liniment leaves behind a protective layer that you can feel on the skin, though it doesn’t feel sticky. You can tell that there’s something there providing a gentle barrier from liquid, but your skin still feels soft and smooth to the touch. It’s that protective beeswax barrier that helps to prevent diaper rash.
How exactly are you supposed to use Bummis Liniment? There are two different ways to use this liniment to clean baby during a diaper change. Your first option is to pump some liniment onto a dry cloth wipe. This is how I usually use it. The second option is to pump the liniment directly onto baby’s skin. For a pee diaper, I use one or two pumps of liniment on a folded cloth wipe. Then I swipe the wipe across the bum, and swipe it across the front leaving a streak of liniment on baby’s skin. Then I wipe as I normally would with the cloth wipe. This spreads the liniment around and lifts it back up onto the wipe. I especially love using Bummis Liniment for changing Petit Prince out of his overnight diaper. My overnight diapers don’t stink, but they do smell like stale pee (not to be mistaken with ammonia, that’s different). Using liniment leaves Petit Prince’s skin really fresh and it lifts away any stale pee smell that might be sticking to his skin.
Bummis Liniment isn’t just for pee diaper changes though! Oh no! You can absolutely use it to clean up a poopy bum, I kid you not. For a poop diaper change, I’ll start with two pumps of liniment on a folded cloth wipe. I take it straight to the bum to do the initial clean up. Then I either fold the wipe over or grab a new one, add one more pump of Bummis Liniment to the wipe, and do a final sweep to make sure that bum is totally clean. You might expect liniment to just spread poop around the area, but it does actually lift it right off the skin! Since we’re on the topic of poopy diapers, I’ll add that it works for cleaning all consistencies of baby/toddler poop that you might encounter.
Petit Prince has particularly sensitive skin, and I have to be really careful about what products I use on him. He needs natural mineral based sunscreens or he gets a rash. Most baby lotions give him a rash and cause his eczema to flare up. I was thrilled that the Bummis Liniment caused no skin irritation for him. I’ve been able to use it for Petit Prince’s diaper changes without any issues. I love that the beeswax in the Bummis Liniment provides a really light protective barrier that also hydrates his skin. He needs that as his eczema gets worse as the winter weather settles in, and there’s nothing worse that itchy eczema patches in the diaper area.
Bummis Liniment is cloth diaper safe. What that means is that it will not build up or leave a residue on your cloth diapers. No build up and no residue means it will not cause repelling. You can rest assured that your cloth diapers will perform as well as they always have while using Bummis Liniment on your baby’s bum! I haven’t seen any staining on either the diapers or the cloth wipes that I’ve be using with Bummis Liniment. Everything still looks perfect!
