I have no BTDT experience, Erica, but as I've been reading, I have seen it suggested to use olive oil. Hope that helps.

I used baby oil on Ray and it worked great. A lot of women in my BF group swear by olive oil.

The comb had bothered me... seemed to hard for his delicate head so I used a stiff tooth brush to work it in.

We used olive oil and a fine-tooth comb on Evan and it worked amazingly well!

I would think either would work. Many ladies swear by coconut oil for diaper rashes.

We used an organic mineral oil but I've also heard good things about olive oil. I just used my fingers to massage it in instead of a comb/brush. GL!

I was told olive or baby oil. So either would do. also if you have the hospital brush can use that. It should go away eventually. Z has it too and it annoys me! lol

Burt's Bees has a baby oil that has apricot and grape seed oils as the main base. It probably smells a lot better than your normal baby oil.
