Tush Swiper Diaper Rash Cream & Ointment Applicator 

Tush Swiper Diaper Rash Cream & Ointment Dispenser/Applicator - (Fits Aquaphor) (1 Pack)

We’ve all been there – you have a squirming baby with a naked bottom and you are now covered in diaper cream. The stuff is greasy, it can stain, and it isn’t sanitary. Instead of using more precious (and pricey) baby wipes to clean your hands every time, get this handy diaper cream applicator.

This version is so much better than the baby bum brush ones because it’s not a separate piece. You don’t have to worry that you’ll lose it or that baby will get their hands on it and put it in their mouth (yuck!).

The neck of the Tush Swiper Diaper Rash Cream & Ointment Applicator fits most standard-sized diaper ointment tubes, so you can use this with your favorite brand.
