Do you use it regularly for preventative reasons or only when needed?

I rarely needed or used it with my first two children so I didn't even buy any this time around. Brenna had a rash by the time she was 5 days old though. Thankfully I had a sample of Desitin but I think I'm going to use it on a reg. basis now.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Jessi was so sensitive, that I kept it on her at all times. The nurses used to call her "the Desitin baby" ... but you know what? She never had diaper rash! With the boys, I just used it when needed (more often with TJ because he always had stomach issues)

With Ryan I used at alot, he used to get such bad diaper rashes he would end up on steriods to clear them up...

With Aidan, he had a diaper rash at 2 days old from all of his antibitoics from the NICU... but he has never had one since (and he will be 7 months this week)... I think its because he doesnt poop enough, he goes once every 3-4 days.

We used A&D with Zachariah all the time. He didn't get diapers rashes until recently when he cut his molars and when he was on antibiotics for an ear infection--he needed prescriptions to clear those up.
