One merit badge of motherhood that I was not aware of is the “Your Hands Will Smell of Diaper Cream for Eternity”. The ring finger nail on my right hand is always whiter than all the rest.  It is crazy.  Then when there really is a rash or irritation? Rubbing is some sort of torture for the child.  I just feel so bad. The world of rubbing cream on a butt has never been glamourous. So when I met Bettina of Wake Innovations recently at a Femfessionals meet up and found out her company made a SPRAY ON diaper cream, I barely could control myself from interrupting her introduction. MUST HAVE!

Meet BumEase. A zinc oxide spray-on diaper cream to provide coverage without the rubbing. So think Desitin in spray form.  Of course it isn’t as thick as the stuff in the tube/tub but same active ingredients.  Just apply the layers you need. It also doesn’t leave the same amount of residue you get from Desitin.

Fortunately we have not had many diaper rash problems but we always use zinc oxide for overnight and long stretches in the diaper. We sometimes have some irritation from a poop here and there but a night with cream on, he is back to himself.  So lets write that out the sobering way. I have put on diaper cream EVERY NIGHT for 2.5 years. Holy moly! No wonder I can’t get rid of that faint smell on my hand. So when we got the sample from BumEase, I was pretty excited for bedtime. I did that first spray and was pleasantly surprised! Great coverage spray, I could see the zinc oxide like usual and no mess on me! WIN! Now Landon has started calling it the “funny cream” because it makes him giggle every time I spray it.

Another awesome highlight of Wake Innovations is their partnership with Raleigh based, Community Workforce Solutions(CWS).  CWS helps individuals with mental or physical handicaps obtain job training.  These individuals label, box and ship their product, helping them with fulfillment of orders. How awesome is that? I love supporting local business but this is a whole new level!

You can currently get BumEase at any NC Kerr Drug as well as order online through their website or Amazon. They will also be attending the Southern Women’s Show here in Raleigh April 27-29th at the Fairgrounds.  Come check them out there if you are local!
