All moms read the following review on Infant Breeze diaper rash prevention fan....

"I kept seeing this in my suggested items list on amazon and thought it was just another unnecessary baby item. Then I started to think about how it makes sense to dry the area well when changing baby's diaper and saw the inexpensive price and put it in the cart. I cannot tell you how glad I did!! Me and my baby love this fan. It has good output and is not bad on batteries. I use it at every changing and my 4 mo old has only had minor diaper rash twice that lasted less than a day.

The best part - my son enjoys getting his diaper changed. He would cry and squirm but now sits calmly and even laughs while lifting his legs in the air waving them back and forth to feel the fanning! He actually looks forward to diaper

I cannot recommend this fan enough - it is a must have esp compared to creams I have paid $30 for and this is much more effective. I am so glad that it's made in the USA because my son kicked it off the changing table and it hit the hardwood floor but didn't break."

My husband asked if they sell an adult size!

My sister used to use her blow dryer set on cool to dry my nieces bum when she had a diaper rash. Not only did it work like a charm my niece seemed to like it. Win win.

Why doesn't a regular fan work? I just cuddle my little ones in front of it for a few minutes and then diaper them up again. It's not like they get diaper rash very often. If a baby is properly diapered, they don't get diaper rash unless there is a problem trying new foods etc or they are ill.

If this reviewer needs a fan at every changing then she isn't changing the baby often enough. Poor kid.

When my son was in diapers (he is now grown) he got terrible diaper rash. I put some Desitin ointment on and hours later he had what looked like brand new skin; rash gone, redness gone, happy baby. I was stunned at this - - and very impressed.

You can get handheld fans for $2 at your local drugstore. Why pay $15+ for one that says it's for baby's butts?

I prefer not to put unprotected blades (regardless of material) that
spin at 12000 rpm anywhere near my babies body.. I also prefer to support products made in the USA when possible!

Sometimes, not all that you see, is seeing all there is to see. Diaper rash is a generic term used to describe redness, irritation, mild discomfort, and chafing all associated with how what happens in a diaper may be the cause of skin irritation within the diapering area. There also exists diaper burn, eczema, psoriasis and food allergies. Many babies are adjusting to how their diaper area may be exposed to a possible variety of skin irritants. In other words, your baby's beautiful new skin may be properly reacting to irritants resulting in diaper rash. Some babies temporarily require a formula change to one that is hypoallergenic. Some babies skin may be irritated by the lanolin in ointments used to sooth a rash. The key here is time, balance and common sense. Above all, a trip to visit a board certified pediatrician should not be considered a last result. Resolving this problem is more often a process than an event. Hang in there.

I have five kids, use bag balm. Desitin is crap. And let your baby lay around without diaper!!!!

That's it really. Baby bums need some air once in awhile. The cream is merely to protect the existing irritation from further ado. Air is the solution.

I used a quiet clip fan on the changing table. I found a hairdryer loud and hard to use with a squirmy baby.

For changes out and about I used the Tiny Tornado II Fan-Charcoal/Titanum because it had a suction cup on the base and you could angle the head and still keep two hands on the baby.

This fan seems ok but I don't think it would work with a squirmy baby.

What is great about the Infant Breeze fan is that it is specifically designed to be used with newborns and infants. Unlike those other cheap portable fans made outside the US, the Infant Breeze fan gives parents peace of mind by having taken extra precaution during the design process to make sure that the babies extremely sensitive areas will never come into contact with spinning blades or any other loose parts. The contoured handle design also gives parents more control of the trajectory of the airflow for those squirmy babies. Not to mention, I personally find that the white noise emitted from the fan has a soothing and calming effect on my son. For extremely frugal parents I am sure there are other household items you could use to create airflow but for new parents that want to try everything possible to keep their babies comfortable, or for a really cute shower gift you should definitely order at least one of the Infant Breeze diapering fans. It is the step parents have been missing in the diapering process...Worlds First Diapering Fan | Diaper Rash Prevention Is a Breeze | Made in the USA

How about a soft cloth to pat the bottom dry? I have plenty of those on hand.
In 10 months with my 2nd child, no diaper rash. Why? I cloth diaper, use bamboo lined diapers, I don't use wipes, just a spray bottle with water, witch hazel, tea tree oil, and a patting motion to wipe off. I also allow my baby plenty of diaper free time every day.
Less is more.

Hairdryers ARE loud and not all that convenient with a cord and all. We've found that the protective cover on the
Worlds First Diapering Fan | Diaper Rash Prevention Is a Breeze | Made in the USA
makes it very easy to set down right in front of the diapering area for hands free use no matter how squirmy baby might be. The white noise has also proven to sooth our LO; so sometimes there is no squirming at all. She just sits back and enjoys the breeze!

I think she is the operative word.

I had two active and wiggly boys. Anything I used had to be anchored. It would not have suited our needs and probably would have ended up broken pretty quickly. Using a fan was something that was nice but not essential. When I did the clip fan and the portable with the suction cup worked well (I got mine in a store for about $5). But now parents have another gadget to spend $15 on ... it's their money and if it makes them happy they should go for it.

I would put this product in the same category of wipe warmers nice gadget if you can afford it but not essential. However I am happy to hear the Worlds First Diapering Fan | Diaper Rash Prevention Is a Breeze | Made in the USA is perfect and enhances the diapering experience for you and your daughter.

Re: Sudocrem

Why would one have to go to ebay to buy this? Just curious, as I avoid ebay like the PLAGUE. After I set up a Paypal account, I kept getting dunned by some guy from ebay threatening me about owing him money for something. I had NEVER shopped at ebay and did not even have an ebay account, so I handed him over to pay pal - - they said he was a fraud hacker trying to get my acct info. After repeated similar problems, I finally shut down my Paypal account as it was continually hacked. I would get bills saying they were going to debit my paypay acct, only to be told by paypal that these were also fraudulent attempts to get into my account. It was so stressful that I finally told the to shut my account down and I have NEVER bothered with ebay or paypal since; Too stressful and threatening.
Can't one find this product at a viable and honest retailer?

Another vote for Desitin - it's been the recommended for 50 years. Smells awful, it's easier to just change the baby and avoid the hassle...

"Don't wear clothes. Don't live indoors. Problem solved."

I took a "Social History of Fashion" class in college for a Soc elective and was told that disease did not start until people started wearing clothing. Stunned me!
