Diaper rashes can be very unpredictable. There is nothing like trying to comfort your baby when they have a diaper rash. If only we could take the pain, itchiness, and sores away. Sometimes they go away fast. Other times, it can more than just a few days. As a mom, I tried my best to prevent them, but the rashes happened anyway. The first thing I did when they happened was go to my diaper caddy to pull out the best diaper rash cream I have ever used – Boudreaux’s Butt Paste.
Boudreaux’s Butt Paste
This pediatrician recommended diaper rash ointment has been a lifesaver in our home. It is easy to use. The ingredients in Boudreaux’s Butt Paste are Zinc Oxide 40%, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Myroxylon Balsamum (Balsam Tolu) Resin, and Petroleum.

- Visibly improves diaper rash in as little as 3 hours
- Provides thickest barrier of protection against diaper rash* (*Based on viscosity measurements of Boudreaux’s Original Butt Paste versus leading zinc oxide diaper rash cream and ointment brands.)
- FREE FROM: dyes, preservatives, parabens and talc
- Maximum strength treatment (40% zinc oxide) and protection
Preventing Diaper Rash
- Make sure your baby’s bottom area is clean.
- Keep your baby’s bottom dry as often as possible.
- Sometimes wipes leave excess moisture, so make sure your baby’s bottom is dry before fastening the diaper on. Air drying is best.
- Use any Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® ointment to seal out moisture and help keep baby’s butt dry and free from rash.
- Know the difference between a diaper rash vs. a yeast infection vs. another type of infection. Sometimes a diaper rash can turn into a yeast infection. This happened with my daughter and we did not know what to do until we took her to the doctor.
- Try not to wait until things get to bad like I did. Ask your doctor or pediatrician questions if you get concerned that the diaper rash is not clearing up after 7 days.
