We have six children, and although we are about five years beyond the diaper stage, I well remember dealing with the wretched things. Even more, I remember trying to cure diaper rash. One of our poor little babies had such a sore bottom she literally could not sit down. I took her to the doctor where I was advised to have her lie down — diaperless — under a lamp to dry her bottom out.
Had this man every had children? Did he have the remotest idea how utterly impossible it is to keep a ten-month old still? Had he personally cleaned up after a diaperless toddler?
My first experience with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste came long after this unsettling experience. It was a hospital sample that I took home to try. The paste is a mixture of zinc oxide and Peruvian balsam — and it works wonders on diaper rash and irritated skin.
We used Butt Paste only on our last baby, Caleb. It’s one of those few staple products I wish I’d had with all six children. It has a pleasant smell — unlike Desitin, the smell of which literally makes me want to gag. (To be fair, that may have something to do with the Desitin-tube-mistaken-for-toothpaste incident of 1991. But still, the smell is nauseating.)
An important feature of Boudreaux’s is that it goes on easily and wipes off easily. Not to be too graphic, but if you’ve ever tried to wipe a sore little bottom that you covered with cream a few hours earlier and is now covered in bodily deposits, you know what it’s like to inflict pain on your child. Nobody wants a rashy body part rubbed hard!
Head on over to Boudreaux’s web site and you can get a free sample to try yourself. I think you’ll be hooked.
