A Houston mom, Kristina Cash, faced a stubborn diaper rash after the birth of her 1st son. After weeks of applying thick sticky cream to her son’s raw sore skin, she read that proper diaper cream application included washing hands BEFORE applying cream. This is important to reduce the risk of spreading germs and bacteria from hands which can further irritate the rash.
Her hands were already blistered and cracked from all the post-diaper cream and washing. She knew there had to be a better, more sanitary way to apply diaper cream. That is when she invented the patent pending BabyBum Diaper Cream Brush™.
Made of pure soft flexible silicone, the BabyBum Brush™ gently applies diaper cream, easily cleans with a wipe, and stands upright on a suction base. Since it is pure silicone it can be disinfected in hot water. Cash said she gathers her pacifiers and bum brush every so often and tosses them in the dishwasher.
Apparently Cash was not the only parent tired of the traditional diaper cream application method. In just 2 years the BabyBum Brush has climbed the ranks to be the #1 selling product in it’s category on Amazon and is sold in major retailers nationwide including Babies R Us, BuyBuy Baby, Kroger, and select H-E-B’s.
Cash continues to grow the BabyBum Products line and recently introducing the patent pending Diaper Changing Glove-Saks™.
“I contracted the rotavirus just 3 days after my daughter had the oral vaccine. I learned it may have passed through her stool and onto my hands during a diaper change.”
Even though she always washed my hands, she described how she usually touched several surfaces before making it to the sink.
“I started wearing gloves for additional protection. One day I thought it would be great if I could just tie up the dirty diaper and wipes into the glove, like a dirty diaper bag. I couldn’t find anything on the market so I invented the BabyBum Glove-Saks™.”
