I Kick Rash (+ $100 Visa Giveaway)

It's not every day you get to use a play on "bad" words like that, folks. Even better, I really am "kicking rash" - think little bottoms in wet swimmie diapers for hours at a time - thanks to Boudreaux's Butt Paste. ;)


First of all, how much does Sam look like that "funny looking baby" on the label?!?!

Now, let me back this thing up a little bit...  ;)

I wouldn't say that Sam had terrible diaper rash as a baby, but we've definitely had our fair share of red booty bumps thanks to colic, lots of antibiotic rounds, and just general baby stuff.  (I even vividly remember texting my friend Lea - who is a pediatric physician's assistant - pictures of his behind for advice on some of worst days!)  Anyway, we found relief in Boudreaux's Butt Paste and quickly learned to apply it very generously at the first sign of a rash.  Diaper rash is NO fun for mom or baby, but Boudreaux's made it so much better... Typically, one thick application of cream and a good night's sleep was enough to see a MAJOR improvement.  Basically, Boudreaux's kicks rash. :)

Last month at Blogher, I was invited to meet the founder of our favorite diaper rash cream, Dr. George Boudreaux, and hear some of the butt paste story... I was delighted to find him so friendly and down to earth - a real grandpa kind-of a guy! Even more, I was really impressed by his "average Joe" success story!

In a nutshell, George started his career as pharmacist at a small-town pharmacy in Louisiana in the late 1970s. As the father to four kids himself, he had seen his fair share of diaper rash and was never completely happy with the options he had for treating it.  After hearing many of the same complaints from the parents he saw in his pharmacy day after day, he decided to work on creating the perfect formula himself.  Soon, his babies had happy bottoms and customers were asking for some of his 'magic butt cream.'

I loved listening to George describe his path from small-town pharmacist to big-name brand.  He said he started out by going to trade shows and handing out t-shirts with the "funny-looking baby" on it and a case of his cream with a 100% money back guarantee.  Soon, big-name retailers were carrying Boudreaux's Butt Cream.  My favorite part of the story?  George said that in the early 2000s (honestly, he knew the exact date, I just can't remember it), he went on OPRAH, and the next day the product COMPLETELY sold out across the country.  Wild right?!

Now, two years into this parenting gig, I think we've got the diaper rash thing down - butt paste, lots of butt paste.  Recently, at the beach, I found that a good layer of cream before the swim diaper was an excellent way to prevent the ugly rash from coming up in the first place. 

Speaking of "ugly rashes," allow me to introduce you to Rashadon - your child's arch nemesis.



Now, for some fun (and a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card)...

- Post a funny Boudreaux's Butt Paste related photo on Instagram (like mine below) and come back here to leave a link to the photo in the comments.

- Leave a comment telling your own story of success defeating diaper rash with Boudreaux's Butt Paste (George might even choose your story to be featured on his brand-new website www.buttpaste.com).  

- OR, post a video on Twitter telling your Butt Paste story and comment with a link.

Do one, or do a couple!  Each Instagram link, Boudreaux's story, or video share link posted in the comments enters you to into a random drawing for one of fifteen $100.00 Visa gift cards, readers can enter up to two times.


.... Because a Boudreaux's butt is a happy butt (and a happy butt = happy momma).

Good luck!

  1. we LOVE Boudreaux‘s Butt Paste and have had the same success with it as you have experienced. We've tried EVERY other kind of "butt paste" out there and Boudreaux's does the trick EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. We do not go anywhere without it! So glad to see that Boudreaux's is getting the recognition that they deserve and I'm excited to hear that the founder is a good ole grandpa!

  2. Sam really does resemble the Baby on the label... so cute!
    Anyway, we love the stuff. I also find that it has a less "offensive" scent than most butt paste!

  3. It's fun to see people from other states talking about Boudreaux! George is actually my husbands second cousin...how funny! We use clothe, so we rarely use diaper cream. But on the few occasions where we've switched him to disposables to get rid of a rash, we've definitely used Boudreaux's.

  4. My mom swore by cloth diapers, frequent changes and "airing" out between changes :)

  5. My 10 year old son laughs whenever he sees "butt paste". He's going through a potty humor phase, which may never end because my husband cracks up over it, too.

  15. We LOVE Boudreaux's Butt Paste! A couple months ago my husband insisted that we should not pay extra for the Boudreaux's brand name and bought the store brand. Within a week he had already changed his mind and went shopping to re-stock our Boudreaux's supply! :)

  20. My daughter went through many a period where we had the red rash of doom...if it wasn't for Boudreaux's we would have been one sorry couple with a screaming baby. I kept it in her room and her diaper bag when going to grandma's. My mother loved changing my daughter and I swear she'd use the whole thing every time she babysat my daughter.

  44. Great review. I'm a big fan for Boudreaux's Butt Paste and both of my babies used it. Whenever I see the smallest sing of rash, I always apply it and it works wonders. :) I really like their sales person because I spread the words with my girlfriends and recommended it to all the Moms I know. :)

  46. I have used this brand for a f few of my kids and I love it! After changing my son one day and still amazed how each time this brand how has come through for me, I decided to put it to the test. Being a Diabetic my self, feet are a huge problem area for Diabetic's, so I decided to use this on my heels and like every-time before, I loved the outcome. Soft, felt moisturized almost, I was amazed at how fast this had worked compared to many over the counter, prescription and specifically Diabetic cream's. From that day forward, my 2 year old son said I had 2 butt's on my feet (meaning the heels), and because the Boudreaux's Butt Paste was only for butt's, lol.

  51. Diaper rash was a big problem for me, primarily with my first child, especially since I did not know about the magic of Butt Paste. I tried all the diffferent tricks to cure diaper rash, but I failed. Once I found butt paste, I no longer worried that my child would suffer in pain.

  52. I have never used it, but I vividly remember the first time I saw it on the store shelves! LOL I was with my hubby and he picked up a tube and placed it on his backside and posed like a baby. Cracked me up so hard! I hope this story can count for my entry!
