Boudreaux’s baby skincare products are usually pretty eye-catching.  You can hardly miss the giant letters spelling out “BUTT” in the baby aisle.   They are most popular for their Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment, a product that always makes me smile when I see it.  I used to wonder, “Who came up with that?”.  I had heard good things about it, but because I try to buy products with natural ingredients for my daughter, I hadn’t purchased or had any experience with it myself.

But guess what?  They have a NEW All Natural Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment!  I knew when I saw that that it was time to give their products a try, and I’m glad I did!

The Test: My 2-year-old daughter is still in diapers and very rarely gets a rash but she was a little red and inflamed not too long ago, probably due to something she ate, and so I smoothed the All Natural Boudreaux’s Butt Paste on her little rear before I put a new diaper on her and put her to bed.  It went on easily and is “light and creamy” and goes on clear like the product packaging states.   The next morning, there was NO redness at all! And there wasn’t any residue either, something I appreciated.  Some diaper creams are clumpy and thick – I like this much better.  So our first test was very successful and I can recommend this product highly.  :)

I like that in the instructions they tell you to change wet and soiled diapers immediately (not everyone does that apparently, but it can help prevent rash so don’t put it off!), cleanse the diaper area and allow to dry, and then apply ointment.  You can apply it to prevent rash as well if baby’s bottom has been exposed to a wet diaper for a long time, like first thing in the morning if they wake up with an especially wet diaper.

Note:  This is still a zinc oxide product so if you’re looking to go for a completely natural approach this isn’t the answer.  I still think it’s something every mom should have around for tough rashes, though.  It quickly cleared up Emma’s rash and since getting her out of pain is the point, I’m thankful for this product’s effectiveness!

I also tested Boudreaux’s Baby Butt Smooth Dry Skin Ointment, a product you can put on your baby’s skin as a moisturizer after bathing. This is another product we’re happy with for very dry skin irritation.  As a daily moisturizer it’s not my favorite – note that it is not a cream but an ointment that coats and protects the skin while it softens and moisturizes.  It’s top ingredients are petrolatum and mineral oil, so that will give you an idea of its consistency.  Like a petroleum jelly.  Overall, I like it and find it effective in smoothing and softening the skin.
