Both myself and my children have been blessed with sensitive (and very pale) skin. On top of that my son has Eczema that pops up every now and then. I’ve found myself experimenting into the best products that won’t produce an angry red rash after use. I wanted to share some of our favorites so that hopefully you can find something that works well for your family without a ton of testing and wasted $$$. Of course, everyone is different, but these are the products that have worked well for us.

Our Favorite Lotions:

I have have to say that of every lotion we have tried, Tubby Todd’s Lotions are my absolute favorite. Although they can be pricey. If you are in the midst of a bad Eczema battle or fighting very dry skin, I can’t recommend them enough. I’ve read review after review about their products helping others with Eczema, and it cleared my son’s right up when he was a baby. My very favorite is the All Over Ointment, it is fragrance free, absorbs well without feeling greasy, and it does an amazing job at moisturizing. After a few uses of this, my son’s dry itchy red Eczema patches simply disappear.

Our other favorite lotion from Tubby Todd is the Dream Cream. This is more of an everyday lotion as it is easier to dispense in the squeeze bottle instead of the jar the All Over Ointment. It is still very rich and creamy (I actually find the texture a bit thicker than the all over ointment), and it has a very subtle scent of shea and citrus.

Since Tubby Todd is fairly pricey, we often use other less expensive lotions if we aren’t in the middle of a flare-up (especially during the hot humid NC summers). We like CeraVe Moisturizing Baby Lotion as CeraVe Baby Healing Ointment as cheaper alternatives.

Our Favorite Body Wash


For body wash, we have tried the Tubby Todd products, and they are great BUT using just the body washes alone, I didn’t enough of a difference to justify the cost. In my opinion, if you need to choose one or the other, invest with the lotions. Body wash is only on the skin for a short time before it gets rinsed off. So what you really want is something that cleanses gently and doesn’t irritate. We like Aquaphor Baby Shampoo & Wash or Cetaphil Baby Wash and Shampoo with Organic Calendula. Both of these leave delicate baby skin soft, healthy and clean.

Our Favorite Baby Sunscreen

So many sunscreens are filled with nasty ingredients that have been shown to be carcinogenic (especially when exposed to UV rays), so I usually rely on the Environmental Working Group Website to double-check the safety of ingredients in sunscreen. Many sunscreens are hard to rub in or have an awful scent. After much experimentation, our favorite by far for our kiddos is Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Sensitive Skin. It rubs in easily for a mineral sunscreen, doesn’t have a cloying odor and it has a great rating on EWG.

Our Favorite Diaper Rash Cream

If you are looking for a clean option that gets the job done, I have to recommend that you try out Tubby Todd’s Sweet Cheeks Diaper Rash Cream. It is a fragrance free thick paste that does a great job sealing out moisture to help with treating and preventing diaper rash. This is hands-down the best diaper rash cream that we have used. Another great alternative that I used a lot with my first baby is the tried and true¬†Triple Paste Medicated Ointment.
