Diaper Disaster! – Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Review and Giveaway

Reading Tip: For an authentic chatting-over-coffee experience while reading this post, be sure to imagine me giggling every time I say “Butt Paste”.
When BlogHer asked if I’d be interested in trying Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, they wanted to know if I had a cute and funny diaper disaster story to share. I almost laughed out loud at the question – of COURSE I have diaper disaster stories. I have two kids! There was the time I was trying to be super cool and wore my baby into a tattoo shop to make an appointment and he promptly poopsploded right through the sling. Or I could tell you what happens when you have two kids in diapers and you accidentally mix up the sizes in your middle-of-the-night diaper changing fog. It’s not pretty.

But then The Incident happened. I will refrain from using names so as to make this story less Googleable in the future, although after what she did that’s being EXTREMELY generous. Let’s just call her Shmaroline.

Shmaroline has recently moved to a big-girl bed, which makes her feel very grown up and important. She loves her big-girl bed, especially because it means when she wakes up in the morning she can get out of bed and play with her dolls and blankies and other toys on the floor. Unfortunately, the transition to the big-girl bed came at exactly the same time as her interest in using the potty. And along with the interest in using the potty came a desire to NOT wear a diaper.

If you’re a parent, you can probably already see where this is going. Feel free to skip ahead, unless your child has been terrible today and you need to be reminded “Hey at least I didn’t have to scrub poop out of the carpet today!” Because yes. That is exactly what happened. My adorable baby girl woke up, silently removed her jammies and diaper, and crapped right on the floor. Which is terrible! Horrible! Totally disgusting! Definitely a Diaper Disaster!

And then she decided to stomp in it. (I’m sorry. So so sorry.) I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth when I heard her making her normal, happy, morning baby noises so I sent Evan in to let her out of the room. He took one look at her, slammed the door and ran back to the bathroom yelling “Mommy! Big mess Mommy! Shmaroline pooped!” Luckily, they both think a morning bath is a special treat – and I had a bottle of carpet cleaner waiting on top of Shmaroline’s bookcase. Wait, that actually wasn’t very cute. But it was definitely a disaster!

Mmmmm butt paste

Luckily, one of the things that ISN’T a disaster right now is Caroline’s diaper rash (Shocking news: Shmaroline was actually Caroline all along!). Despite lots of long car trips and super hot summer days, her bottom is as soft as a, uh, baby’s bottom. I got my tube of Boudreax’s Butt Paste right after we returned from Virginia and it worked wonders on the redness from 7 hours in the car seat. Since then I’ve been putting just a tiny dab on every night after bath and we’ve had zero issues. I’ve found it to be easier to put on and wipe off than other diaper creams I’ve tried and it doesn’t have that super-distinctive diaper cream smell I associate with most zinc oxide products. It even worked on the dreaded “Look Mom, I just ate an ENTIRE pint of blueberries on top of those strawberries I had for breakfast – now can I have some grapes?” rash. Boudreax’s was created by a pharmacist in 1978 and is recommended by pediatricians.

    I have a poop story!!

    I used to let Knox have naked time before bed every evening to help combat diaper rash. One night, he pooped on the floor. Before I could get to him, he stepped in it and FREAKED out (he hates ooey gooeys on his hands and feet). Poop flew everywhere. Poop on the wall, poop on the tv, poop on his sensory table, and our dog decided to help herself to cleanup (which means smearing it into the carpet with her tongue). It was every bit as disgusting as it sounds.

    I will have to give Butt Paste a try because we don’t do naked time in the house anymore.

    Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is the only product we have tried for diaper rash because so many told me it was the one to get. Works wonders!
    As far as poop story? Really not much of a story, just a cheeseburger sized stain on the back side of Sam’s cutest little newborn sleeper the very first time he wore it. Stinkin poop.

  3. Brigid Keely says:

    Niko hasn’t had much in the way of diaper rash, especially once we started using disposables. He does get eczema rash, though. I guess I don’t really have an awesome diaper rash story? I DID have to go around cleaning poop off all the doorknobs because, during a recent potty training session, he STUCK HIS FINGERS UP HIS OWN ASS, found poop, and then TOUCHED THE ENTIRE WORLD. I also discovered that the lone tube of diaper rash cream we had, which was given to us before he was born, did NOT contain zinc so I had to go out and purchase a special zinc-containing diaper rash ointment for a skin condition I have.

    My daughter suffers from what we call “red butt” whenever she eats chocolate. It makes her poop a lot and then she starts getting rashy.

    I always tried to change my son’s diapers alot so he wouldn’t get a rash. Whenever his bottom would get irritated, I would let him run around without a diaper.

  7. Leah says:

    Just yesterday, Bruce learned a very important lesson about not putting a toddler down for a nap with out something preventing access to the diaper tabs. Thankfully for him, there was no poop involved.

    Calder was never a smearer but I did catch him trying to sneak a taste once.

    my daughter gets diaper rash when she eats strawberries…

  10. Jamie says:

    My daughter is almost 3 now and I have to admit that I’ve been stalling on the whole potty training issue. To be honest, I’m terrified. We took her on a flight a few months ago and before we boarded, she pooped in her pull-up. She immediately started informing everyone in the terminal “I pooped. My butt is itchy. Privacy please!!” She continued to declare this as I walked her to the bathroom. I was mortified and decided that if my kid could scream “Privacy please!” she’s probably too old to still be wearing diapers! We’re starting the 3 day potty training method this weekend.

    PS- I’ve recommended Boudreaux’s Butt Paste to all my friends with babies. I’ve used it on my daughter since she was a newborn and it always cleared her rash right up.

    I don’t have a a diaper rash story. I’m due in Dec, but i’d like to try this product

  18. Audrey says:

    Diaper rash is the pits when you have a fair skinned kid. Ev had a diaper rash all of twice, Del seems to have a non-stop case most of the time. Nothing funny about diaper rash, but she did try to go poop in the toilet the other day.. she took herself to the bathroom, pulled her diaper off and promptly pooped on the floor. No rug, thank goodness, so an easy cleanup – and I couldn’t help being proud of her effort. ;D

    Slightly relevant comment approaching…

    I used to work for a well-known grocery store. I learned from an elderly gentleman that Boudreaux’s Butt Paste works miracles for elderly people who need to wear diapers.
