Between early morning wake-ups, round-the-clock feedings, and what feel like 2,500 diaper changes a day — it’s a miracle parents manage to get anything else done besides basic baby care.
But one piece of advice, from a parent of a toddler: If you can nail diaper changes, you’re that much closer to mastering the whole parenting thing, and there’s a product that makes cleaning baby butts a breeze.
Boudreaux Butt Paste is the one product every changing table or diaper bag needs, and it’s pediatrician-approved, too. This thick butt paste both treats and prevents diaper rash and it’s become a necessity.
A+D and Aquaphor, move aside. This butt paste is the number one best-seller on Amazon, and for great reason. Having tried numerous products in this category, I don’t make this claim lightly.
What Makes Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Special?
Boudreaux Butt Paste comes out as a thick, globby white paste and it doesn’t have an irritating smell to go along with it. With A+D, that stuff smells so strongly that even hours after a diaper change you smell it on your hands and it permeates through a baby’s diaper and clothes. With Boudreaux Butt Paste, the lack of smell is a major selling point.
But the ultimate perk? This Butt Paste is proven to prevent redness and also treat diaper rash within a day. If my baby has an irritated butt from a day of explosive poos, I layer this on thick before bedtime and it soothes any irritation immediately on contact. I can tell because our baby seems relieved once he feels the cooling paste, rather than just frustrated that he’s still on the changing table. The zinc oxide also helps lock out moisture and keep baby’s butt dry overnight — this means a red butt doesn’t turn into a rash. This paste is also great to use in baby’s leg creases where diaper irritation commonly occurs.
The max strength butt paste works against even the most irritated diaper rashes, but it’s sensitive enough that you can use it daily. The ingredients include zinc oxide, castor oil, mineral paraffin, Peruvian balsam and white petrolatum, so it’s safe to use on newborn babies and toddlers alike. I have a 4-ounce cream on the changing table and a 2-ounce cream in my bag with backup on order.
As a parent, when you find a baby product that works, it’s worth telling the world about.
