What does it mean for a nappy cream to be cloth safe? Simply put, a cream that’s hard to wash out of fabric materials will start to clog the pores of your diapers over time and make them less absorbent. They’re only necessary if you notice an oncoming rash rather than for daily use, but it is still recommended to use a biodegradable liner when using a diaper cream to prolong the life of your diapers. 

That said, it’s actually less likely to get a diaper rash with cloth diapers because you tend to change more often and there’s no exposure to nasties. But just in case, here’s a recipe you can whip up at home with easy to find ingredients! 


  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Shea butter
  • 2 Tablespoons beeswax pellets
  • 2 Tablespoons vitamin E oil
  • 3-5 drops top quality Lavender Essential Oil


  1. Place a heat-safe bowl over a pot with some water to make a baine marie. Put the coconut oil, Shea butter and beeswax pellets into the bowl and heat the water over medium-low heat until all ingredients are fully melted and mixed.
  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and let cool for about 5-10 minutes before whisking in the Vitamin E oil and Lavender Essential Oil.  
  3. Pour into an airtight glass jar and cool with jar open to room temperature. You can optionally whip with a handheld mixer for a whipped texture before transferring to a glass jar for cooling 

Pro Tip: If your baby’s skin is sensitive to wetness, we’ve kept the pocket feature in our diapers with the stay-dry microfleece layer just for this purpose. Use the inserts inside the pocket so that the layer touching your baby’s skin is the quick absorbing stay-dry layer while the inserts do all the heavy-lifting absorption inside the pocket.

I love how the Just Peachy diapers fit my newborn and my 21 month old toddler! They are so simple to use and the design is very well thought out. The snap buttons allow me to adjust for a perfect snug fit for my newborn. And the stretchy tabs makes cloth diaper changing a breeze with a wiggly and impatient toddler! The inserts are soft yet super absorbent. And the colourful covers have generous leg gussets for extra leak protection!

It’s great that you have that extra protection for leaks as this is my main issue with using them at night and also during the day when out and about, so just making them super leak proof is amazing and sets you apart from all the other brands. Love the colors you have so far by the way!! I love how many snaps you have on them and they seemed to be very comfy for the babies especially since they were all over the place in them!

Overall I think the diaper is beautiful and I loved the fit to my baby and the pull up double function as well.
