Homemade Diaper Cream

Mix Crisco shortening with corn starch (or even better: Johnson's Baby Powder Pure Cornstarch) to make a paste and apply liberally to baby's bottom.

Crisco All Vegetable Shortening-16 OZ
Johnson's Baby Powder Pure Cornstarch with Aloe and Vitamin E, 22 Ounce (Pack of 2) - Let the natural moisture-absorption qualities of pure cornstarch keep your baby's skin comfortable and dry. The soft texture of this gentle cornstarch baby powder helps keep skin feeling especially fresh and smooth
The shortening provides a barrier to wetness and the cornstarch absorbs any leftover wetness.

Since there are no artificial fragrances or preservatives it is hypo-allergenic as well.

I know it works for my little princess and for the amount of money you would spend on a manufactured diaper cream you can make a whole tub of this!
