One of the first baby products I ever received was a big, giant tub of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. I remember it so well. Ahhh…memories… It was at my very first shower when I was pregnant with Michael, and a girlfriend gave it to me as a joke because it had “butt paste” in the name. (You know you’ve had children too young when phrases like “butt paste” make you explode in fits of giggles!)
Michael hardly ever had diaper rash. Like, ever. In fact, I don’t think he had it once. And so my giant tub of Butt Paste sat unused in his closet. By the time Gracie was born, it had disappeared in one of our moves. Gracie was a completely different story when it came to diaper rash. That poor child hardly ever DOESN’T have diaper rash. One good diaper and her poor little bottom looks like a 17-year-old face with acne. Oh, it’s terrible! Big ol’ welts all over! I’m not sure if it’s a girl thing or a Gracie thing, but girlfriend has some issues! We tried several different methods of fighting diaper rash, but one of the most effective methods we have found is using diaper cream before diaper rash is a problem. We use it every night for Gracie, or any period of time when I know it might be a bit longer between regular diaper changes (ex. out running errands and on trips). This is preventative and helps us avoid the situation in the first place most of the time. I also use it any time there’s the slightest hint of red on her bum. My goal is to prevent the welts by using it before they show up. And that has worked really well.
The next step was figuring out which diaper cream to use. Since we use it so often, it has to be something that is gentle enough for her sensitive skin, but still really darn effective. That’s why we use Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. You may think this is a product review, but I think of this post as more of a consumer report. Because we consume Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. We consume much. I love that it comes in a tub, too. It fits in the drawer of Gracie’s changing table, and I can literally scoop out handfuls of the stuff to cover her toosh. More than the convenience, though, I love that it is actually what the silly name says. It is a BUTT PASTE, y’all. I’m talking full coverage, you-might-be-able-to-spackle-your-dining-room kind of coverage. That might sound too harsh for a baby, but if you’ve ever seen your child suffer from severe diaper rash, you know that that thick, creamy coverage is exactly what you want. Ain’t nothin’ gettin’ through that Butt Paste. Gracie’s tooshy stays dry and welt free, which is exactly what you want. While I found Boudreaux’s Butt Paste when I was a new mom, it really wasn’t until I was a more seasoned mom that I realized what a gold mine it was. We are hardly ever without it around my house. As their very entertaining video says, “Our butts are saved!!!”
