Tubby Todd All Over Ointment Review: We're Obsessed


As a first-time mom, I did all the research into all the things when looking at items for my baby registry, and that included asking veteran moms their opinions on what was worth it and not worth it for my newborn baby. Pro tips I learned from them: buy more size one diapers than newborn diapers, and forget infant socks because they’re useless.

When it came to lotions, creams and the links, one item kept coming up again and again in conversation: Tubby Todd All Over Ointment.

What is Tubby Tubby Todd All Over Ointment?

Tubby Todd ointment is a rich, balm-like ointment that was specifically formulated to relieve the symptoms of eczema, dry skin, rough skin and other skin irritations. It’s made from sensitive, plant-based ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, camellia leaf extract and glycerin which help the skin stay moisturized and soothed.

It’s available in three sizes: 3.5 ounces, 8 ounces and a travel three-pack, perfectly sized for diaper bags. The velvety formula has gained a cult following among parents, too.

With thousands of five-star reviews, parents rave about how gentle and effective it is for treating eczema patches and even cradle cap in kids.

How to use Tubby Todd All Over Ointment

Tubby Todd All Over Ointment can be used throughout childhood, including the newborn stage. I even use it myself. It’s so gentle that you can use it on a baby’s most sensitive areas, such as their face and hands. (It can’t be used on diaper rash, FYI.)


After patch testing for any allergic reactions, you can slather Tubby Todd All Over Ointment on any red, dry, itchy, flaky or irritated parts of your skin generously until the rash disappears. Should it not disappear after a few days, you should consult a doctor.

My Tubby Todd All Over Ointment review

What initially piqued my interest was the fact that I have eczema, so it was highly likely my daughter would, too—and I was right. I had tried a bunch of premium drugstore eczema brand soaps, lotions and such, and none of them worked. Many contained fragrances that worsened the problem.

I had registered for Tubby Todd ointment because I had heard it was a miracle worker from other moms. I’m glad I did because it was the only thing gentle enough for my newborn and the only thing that actually worked to keep her eczema at bay.

We now keep Tubby Todd All Over Ointment stashed everywhere—in the diaper bag, the kitchen junk drawer and the console of my car. I can put it on my two-year-old daughter’s face or hands at the first sign of irritation, and she never complains of it stinging or itching. I also love to use it as a hand cream several times a day for my sensitive skin.


This rich balm is now my default baby shower and first Mother's Day gift, whether or not someone registers for it—I believe in it that much.
