Last month we were excited to kick off summer with the Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop. Thanks to our sponsors, we gave away a great package that included an Applecheeks, Ones&Twos, Rocky Mountain Diapers, and Sprout Cream. At the time I had not had the chance to try out Sprout Cream, but the Willow Store generously sent me a sample to try so I could share my thoughts with you. One of the things that stood out to me right away was that I received my package within two or three days of them telling me they were sending it to me! I love fast service!
The Willow Store was started in 2005 by Catherine Bolden. They carry lots of great products, and you can read more about their company in our Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Sponsor Highlight. You can also check out their store by clicking on the button below.
When I read the description of Sprout Cream on the Willow Store website, I was intrigued.
Sprout Cream is the all-over ointment that works to heal and prevent diaper rash. Great for use with any type of diapers, washes out easily, won’t stain.
Sprout Cream uses a unique formula that makes it hard for bacteria to live, but is extremely gentle on delicate skin and promotes the body’s natural healing process as well as reducing the potential for new diaper rash to start. Specially made with food-grade ingredients to keep it safe for baby’s skin. If you could eat it, you can wear it! (although we don’t recommend eating our diaper cream!)
We don’t deal with frequent diaper rashes here normally, but when my son gets accidental dairy exposure, he gets a painful, red, burn-like rash and his whole diaper area is extremely sensitive. All of my munchkins also have sensitive skin, so we frequently deal with eczema outbreaks with my older children. For those reasons, I love having cloth diaper safe, natural rash ointments in the house for those times we need them.
Sprout Cream comes in a 2 oz tub. I wasn’t sure how big that would be, but 2 oz ends up being a lot more than I anticipated. Even if you deal with frequent rashes, this tub should last for quite awhile. The tub is still small enough to throw in the diaper bag without taking up much space, which is also nice. Sprout Cream is a clear, lightweight ointment, with no noticeable scent. The texture reminds me more of vaseline than lotion, but without being heavy or greasy.
Nehemiah has had a few outbreaks over the last month, and each time that I’ve used Sprout Cream I’ve noticed improvement by the next diaper change. I’m not sure if these have been from dairy or just because he is teething, but I’ve been so glad I had Sprout Cream around. Some of his outbreaks have caused him to be in so much pain that just holding him on my hip makes him squirm and cry in pain. But after a time or two of me using Sprout Cream, he recognizes the tub, and gets excited when I pull it out. He even laughs while I’m applying it, which is a first with any of the creams we’ve used, so it must feel great!
Despite using Sprout Cream fairly frequently, I’ve had no issues with build up on my diapers. There are some cloth diaper brands that recommend using a liner with any diaper cream, so that is something to be aware of, but I’ve personally not a had a problem after a month of use.
Sprout Cream has also been used at my house to soothe eczema irritated skin, bug bites, and random boo-boos! All of my kids have really liked it, and it has always helped to calm the itching.
Another thing I really like about Sprout Cream is how simple it is. Just three ingredients! I’ve spoken to some moms who have children with a lot of allergies that make even the more natural creams off limits. However, there’s nothing in this to give those little ones issues, which is something I definitely appreciate.

I received a complimentary 2oz tub of Sprout Cream to facilitate my honest review. I received no other compensation.
