Lesson 42: Diaper rash is a pain in the butt

I mentioned in a previous post that we deal with diaper rash by letting J sit in a warm bath with 8 ounces of baking soda mixed in. After his bath, we allow him plenty of “naked time” to let his bottom air dry and to just give him a break from a diaper. When it’s time to put on his diaper, we use Boudreaux’s Maximum Strength Butt Paste. This is our go-to diaper rash remedy for a bad rash and it seems to do the trick.

We swapped to cloth diapers because disposable diapers irritated J’s skin. Because of the cloth, we rarely have to deal with a diaper rash.

I still use Boudreaux for a bad rash. However, you absolutely cannot use Boudreaux with a cloth diaper. So, while it may seem to be counterintuitive, we actually switch to disposable diapers if J breaks out into a bad rash. We use Honest Diapers if we have to use disposables, since they’re chemical free and easier on the skin. We also haven’t had any skin sensitivity problems with the Honest brand.
