Snappi Baby USA reached out to me this spring and asked if I’d like to give their Ergo Baby Brush a try. It’s a flexible diaper cream applicator made of medical-grade silicone. There are many accessories on the market that can make diaper changes easier and more efficient. Is the Snappi brush one of them?
First of all, what are some of the issues you might encounter when using rash cream?
- It gets on your fingers, your hands and under your nails
- It can cause skin-to-skin contamination
- Cotton balls stick to the skin and Q-tips take too long because they are so tiny
Let’s see how the Ergo Brush stacks up!
One feature I liked right off the bat was the suction cup base which holds it in place.
It also fits comfortably and firmly in your hand, thanks to the soft silicone material and nubby grips on the handle.
The applicator is a lot more flexible than even I expected. The soft, curved edges bend and flex to gently cover affected skin, and get in crevices.
Oh, and I found another great use for it – applying facial masks! (So you might need to buy one for yourself) 🙂
Here’s another nice feature: the Ergo Brush comes with a little orange drawstring pouch, which is great for toting around in your diaper bag, or just keeping it out of sight at home. Snappi recommends using the delicate cycle to wash/sanitize the bag periodically, and then hang dry. Clean the Ergo brush just like you would silicone teethers (with soap and warm water).
You might think “this product is just another thing to clean,” but if you’ve been using your fingers to apply rash cream, you have to wash them anyway, so there’s that. I can’t really see any drawbacks to Snappi’s Ergo Brush, and with a price tag of just $6.99 (with free shipping if you have Prime), giving it a try is a really low-risk proposition.
Plus, there’s also Snappi’s lifetime guarantee!
Snappi Ergo Brushes are available in three different colors right now – blue, red and white.
