I am currently in the midst of packing, no not the critical packing like our house. The preparation for the car supplies on the 6-day road trip across the country to our new home!
Snacks are involved. Drinks included. Some dry ice is being planned on to keep my breastmilk stash cold on the trip hopefully.
A Rash Kit is involved. I will be slathering his butt up preemptively on the long stretches to avoid any rash development, using something magical. Read below to find out what is in my rash kit, and why it will be a GAME changer for the side of the road trip use.
I received a set of Rash kicking awesome for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided, and this page may contain affiliate links.
Boudreaux’s Rash Kicking Kit
When I had my first baby, my godmother gifted me a baby bathtub full of fantastic bath time goodies, but also something I didn’t even register for: Boudreaux’s Butt Paste.
She knew something this new mom did not. It treats an prevents, and any little sign of a rash we would slather it on and all of us covered in the paste- but happily on our way to no rash FAST. It works GREAT.
Pro tip new parents: DRY THAT BABE’S BUTT SO dry let them sit with a washcloth over the top to prevent pee spray, but dry that bottom out before application. We learned the hard way. Avoid the rash on the rash and don’t be like use trapping the moisture against the outbreak.
Also new tip?
Buy yourself, and any new parent to be the Rash kicking kit from Bourdreaux. You can even Amazon “subscribe and save” it, or 2-day ship it for $15 or less. You know. To avoid the germs, people, or your crying baby through the store to grab it yourself.
Why this kit?
The magical, beautiful, BUTT BRUSH.
Yes, I am cracking myself up over here, sorry. At least we are talking baby butts, they are the squishiest, and the cutest and let’s keep them rash FREE.
The kit included an everyday butt paste that treats but helps prevent rashes.
It also has another tube in there: 2x the rash kicking fighter power, butt paste extra strength style.
So, take your 16% Zinc every day paste, or if you have a sad little bum on your babe, Grab the extra strength at 40% zinc oxide.
Apply to magical red BPA free, flexible, silicone BUTT BRUSH.
Apply the thickest coat of butt paste, made possible because you are using the magical Butt Brush.
Wipe with a wipe and use the suction cup to stick somewhere your baby cant grab it and stick it in its mouth. Or toss it in the dishwasher, or boil it ( to disinfect if you have some icky sickness going on to cause poo/ rash combo like a yeast infection rash). Easy to clean, as it is easy to use!
Why Butt Paste?
For me, I have only strayed a few times, and my sensitive boy’s butts- GOT WORSE with other brands. Both babies. Every time. Bless my husband for bringing home a diaper rash cream after a long day at work, so I don’t have to drag babies to the store, but it made the rashes worse and none of us of sleep well when a baby has a butt on fire.
We can’t use much on my oldest’s, skin without causing him issues, so having butt paste a preservative, paraben, talc, a dye-free paste was essential.
Also, you could tell it started working right away three years ago, and now. A formula that never lets us down and helps us kick some rash behind!
So thank you Boudreaux’s butt paste and your magical butt brush that keeps my hand’s cleaner and gets a thicker layer of protection than my fingers ever could.
