Having little real medical knowledge and just my info as a educated parent i'd say Cortizone is never good for a baby under normal circumstances, but as you say your child has bad eczema Id just consult with a doctor to confirm that it is ok to put on. (If its not that bad even if a Dr. would tell me I could, I still wouldn't. Cortizone goes into the skin and into the blood)
Eczema can be painful and get infected if not treated, so sometimes cortizone is the lesser of two evils.

The dermatologist prescribed Desonide for my son, also a corticosteroid. Before that we were using Aquaphor on his legs before bed.

My husb also has and used every cream out there. The only ones that really help r the ones with cortisone so even if its supposedly natural it prob has cortisone in it.like the clear cream that was taken off shelves two yrs ago. Was like miracle magic til it was exposed as cortisone... Beware that cortisone is extremely addictive! When the body gets then it breaks out for more its a vicious cycle. When u stop cortisone it will break out bad at first to crave more and then will clear up a lot.  So if u can hold off that initial breakout that's worth it. Best is to drink tons of water and plain moisturizer.

My baby has a bad case of eczema. I tried getting the legendary Dr. Heimlich cream but he stopped selling it. Anyone have any recommendations on what to use.

Thanks
Take your baby to a dermatologist. I would never use anything questionable on my baby
