We used to use triple paste because I heard it was the best... It was expensive, too. However, LO ended up with horrible diaper rash (like little open blisters) despite using triple paste at every diaper change. Then we tried Vaseline at the rec of his pediatrician... It helped some, but the rash was still there. After it had been over a week, I found some Burt's Bees diaper cream in a gift basket and started using that... Worked like a charm! Within a day he was soooo much better. Now we only use Burt's Bees diaper cream.
if you're having diaper rash troubles, a couple other things to keep in mind:
find unscented wipes,preferably for sensitive skin, or even use a washcloth and water to wipe. Be sure after you wipe baby's bottom to dry it off before putting the diaper cream on. And, like a pp mentioned, letting baby hang out naked for a little while each day (preferably on a towel to protect your floor!) helps as well.

DS had terrible diaper rash in the NICU, I'm talking bright red, bleeding, the works. The put desitin on, A&D and a special prescription (not all at the same time lol). Nothing worked. When he came home we started using Aquaphor, and it cleared up right away! (Although I think when he was in the NICU he was only changed every 3 hours, so he sat in a dirty diaper longer than he does at home, so that may have had something to do with it!)
bdcram:We use Aamp;D at every diaper change.
