22 1/2 months ago I was blessed with my very first child. I was nervous due to my inexperience with children on things that would come up when it came to rashes, illnesses, and more. I am extremely thankful for the support system that I have with my friends and family for questions that arose and will arise. One thing that happened with my son was the fact that diaper rashes occur. It happens with EVERY child, this I know, but how to get rid of it was driving us nuts. We were trying everything from A&D to Butt Paste. Nothing was working, the rashes were staying no matter what. I understand that every child is different and if you are a mother, you will soon come to that realization, if you haven’t already. What works for my child may not work for yours. However, when our pediatrician told us about Doctor Smith’s and gave us sample packets to try we did. Thank goodness for pediatricians! (Please keep in mind that your pediatrician will probably recommend the brands that are given to them for free, all doctors do this!) When we tried the Doctor Smith’s brand we were utterly amazed. A diaper rash our son had for 3 days had vanished with one application of Doctor Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment! It was our miracle! We were so pleased that it worked so well, we made the decision from that moment on it was the only product we would use. The unfortunate thing with Doctor Smith’s is that the ease of finding it EVERYWHERE is not a realization. We have to go to specialty stores like Buy Buy Baby. As you know, that store is a pricey store and the items they sell have high price tags. Though I wish I could find Doctor Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment everywhere from Wal-Mart to Walgreens, I can’t. It would be nice to have the marked down price, but when you don’t want your child to suffer, you do what you have to do. The few extra bucks it costs is worth my child’s happiness. I strongly recommend that you at least TRY this product. It really is worth every penny. Like I stated, my husband and I will not use anything else for our child because of the miracle touch this product has on our child’s little bottom.
