Stilettos and Diapers: Things All Moms Need: Including A Happy Butt

Things All Moms Need: Including A Happy Butt


Sometimes, I stop and think, "how did I possibly Mother my firstborn without blank {insert completely random life-saving trick that I use for baby #2 here}?

For my second born's first 6 months of life, he slept in the bassinet in our room. After about 2 months, his sleep got a little tricky. He woke easily. I was up a lot. We remembered that using the bathroom fan helped when we were bouncing our firstborn to sleep. We ended up pushing the bassinet into our bathroom, turning the fan on and sleeping peacefully. He was still super close to me, but everyone was rested and much happier in the morning. 

I swaddled babe #2 in the swaddle blankets with Velcro. Until 7 months, when was too chunky for the largest size. Something about that tight wrap made all the difference in the world! I only wish I had known about those suckers with #1. I would have saved myself so much time trying to snugly wrap a blanket around my oversized infant.

The first time around, I swore by the brand of diapers my sister used. Naturally, I got tons of them for the second time. I opened them all up and organized them in every diaper change area of the house. Then I found out baby #2 is shaped a bit differently and he leaked out of all of them. Moral of that story? Don't open all your diapers. 

One thing I knew was a proven success for both babes, and is for every new Mom I've recommended it to, is Boudreaux's Butt Paste

Photobucket

My firstborn didn't have many diaper rashes, but when he did, Butt Paste did the trick. My second born seems to have sensitive skin and is much more prone to them. 

Imagine my sheer joy when he had to be on 20 days of antibiotics last month. Holy diaper rash. It appeared all of a sudden around day 5 and I quickly slathered him in Butt Paste. The next morning, his skin looked normal again. I kept putting it on at night, just to protect his skin, and he didn't have any other signs of a rash. I now use the Butt Paste as more of a preventative to keep rash at bay. Why? Because a Boudreaux's butt is a happy butt.

You can like Boudreaux's Butt Paste on Facebook, and you will absolutely want to keep up with them there after watching this video.

  3. With my first son I used a different type of diaper rash cream, it worked for the little bit of rashes that he got so I of course stuck with the same brand the second time around, however it didn't work, at all! That is when I switched to Boudreaux's and it is like a magic cream! Not only did it get rid of his rash, it got rid of an acidic burn that he got on his butt from apple juice!! Now I swear by the butt paste & tell every mom I know that they need to buy it, seriously the best stuff ever!

  10. Be proactive! If you have a child who is prone to diaper rash, use the cream whether rashing or not.

  19. We are dealing with diaper rash right now! Boudreaux's is definitely the best. We also let the baby "air out" about 15 minutes in the morning and evening and that seems to help too. Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. I've always known when I had a baby we'd use butt paste. It's what the hospital nursery used when I worked there. I'm currently dealing with a rash caused by sleeping through the night for the first time. Treatment is butt paste, completely drying bum with each diaper change and changing diaper frequently. Also leaving the diaper off some. We are 48hours out and much much improved. She'll be getting a nice thick layer every night now, as a preventative.

  21. I used the diaper cream before the rash appears. I also used the wipes for sensitive skin

  39. the best thing for our daughter was air. In the summer heat especially, I would let her "air it out" for a little while in front of a fan. Then I would use cream and powder. It always went away pretty quickly with that treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I provided my son with a lot of free range, no-diaper time. I'd put down a bunch of towels in the living room and let him crawl around naked. It worked like a charm. He rarely experienced rashes after that.
