Who can forget the very first time their baby was plagued (for lack of a better word) by the dreaded diaper rash? I will never forget mine…
When I became a new mother to my oldest, Leila, I followed pretty much all of the “rules” of diaper changing: I changed her diaper every few hours, cleaned her little bottom up really well, and would even put some kind of ointment on her as a protectant. However, as do all parents, I eventually screwed up and missed a step. Next thing I knew, my poor little baby was met with an awful case of diaper rash. She was miserable as she dealt with an aching, red, raw bottom and I was just as miserable seeing her suffer. We tried a few different products to help her, but her rash was really bad at this point and nothing seemed to work. She cried, I cried. She couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t sleep. It was dreadful.
That was when I was first introduced to what was presented to me as the “holy grail” for diaper rash relief by a close friend of mine – a product called Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. Of course, my husband immediately burst out in laughter at the name, but I quickly turned to him with the stern face of a sleep deprived mom and said,
“There’s nothing funny about diaper rash!”
I was recommended to use the Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Maximum Strength formula for this stubborn rash. Of course, after doing a little research on it, my husband and I both felt comfortable trying it out because it didn’t have any harsh ingredients, was paraben, preservative, and phthalate-free, and contained no artificial fragrances. (Safe, simple ingredients are always a plus for us!) Next thing I knew, my poor, sweet baby’s diaper rash was quickly cleared up and we were all smiling again. I was completely sold! By the time I had my second baby, I knew exactly how to handle the dreaded diaper rash and never had a sleepless night again (at least not one due to a dreadful diaper rash).
By the way, the formula was developed by a pharmacist and father of four who I’m willing to bet knows what it’s like to have a sleepless night or two.
Now that I’d like to think of myself as a veteran mom, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is always something I recommend for new moms as one of the baby products to always have on hand in their nurseries. Sure they laugh at the name too, but they’ll soon learn just how NOT funny diaper rash is too. *smile*
