Why We Love Coconut Oil

Jasper is cursed with my fair skin. As a newborn, we were careful to use products that would help minimize infections and rashes. He developed hives from one of the Neutrogena lotions, and suffered from frequent diaper rashes. Our pharmacist was dispensing the prescription tubes to us on a monthly basis, and I turned to a mom’s group at Babies in Common for answers.

We ended up switching to Coconut Oil. Now, at the slightest sign of an irritated bum, we slather him up and any redness disappears.

Jasper has also developed some eczema (milk allergy related?) and the coconut oil helps to ease these symptoms. It is awesome! Our daycare provider now uses coconut oil instead of diaper cream, and is working to spread the word. As promised at the moms’ group, this anti-bacterial and anti-fungal miracle-in-a-jar is a life saver..
