Cheeky Bum




QUICK! Think of something cuter than a baby bum. 

Too late. Time limit is up. Plus, there isn't anything cuter anyway so save the few remaining brain cells that your children haven't fried and listen to this (it is too good to miss).... That's what my dad used to say before...Ahem...releasing flatulence, which is not as cute as a baby bum. It's not even on the cute spectrum. 

As cute as baby bums are, I have a problem with them. It is this: my babies poop once a week. Doesn't sound so bad...fewer diapers to change. (But a lot more "listen to this it is too good to miss!'s" going on if you know what I mean.)

But the real problem is when you combine the once a week poop with the following phrase from my Mother-in-law, "We Jacksons have large colons." (I wish this would have been explained to me before marriage. She informed me of this after the family heard the travel log--GROSS PUN NOT INTENDED---(GROSS!) of the toilets across America that have been clogged by Uncle Andrew.)

And thus we see where Peter's nickname "Poop Dog" and "Pooper Bear" came from. 

My sister will call me later this week and tell me that this post is way too much information and disgusting. 

Well friends, I tell you this with nothing but your best interest at heart. How can this be? What do butts and poopsies have to do with your best interest? 

If your children are your best interest, you need to know about Butt Paste. Boudreaux's as my husband likes to call it (it sounds fancier when we're in public and he has to shout across the room "Bring me the Boudreaux's!" I have to agree, it's better than saying, "Where's that butt paste, woman?" )

You see, diaper rash is inevitable. And this is the best stuff to treat it with. Trust me, I've tried it all. 

And while there is nothing cuter than a baby bum, there is nothing sadder than a rashy one. Poor little poop dog! 

With two JWLC (that's "Jackson's with large colons") in my household wearing diapers, we gots ta have our Boudreaux's Butt Paste on hand!

  1. We just tried Butt Paste for the first time this summer while on vacation. I was amazed at how well it worked! Never using anything else. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Soooo that's what its called.... "Large Colons". My son has the same problem! I'm just glad he is now old enough to plunge the toilet his self, and rid me from that gross duty! Love your Honesty :)

    I have Five kids and I to have tried all the bum creams and by far I mean by far!! Butt Paste is the best! My fourth child "a girl who is 2 yrs of age" has had problems with poor bum rashes a lot, and I find if I don't keep Boudreaux's Butt Paste on her all the time then she will get a rash. But if I use it after every changed diaper the girl is golden and is rash free!

    I can't agree more with you that baby bums are the cutest thing ever :)

  3. My babies always suffer from terrible diaper rash during the first few weeks of life. We have some of this and it's a great alternative to the standard diaper rash cream. One nice thick coat and I don't have to see those poor newborn bums all red. :(

  4. Just had my first baby in May and she has been a once a week-er too! Just this past week we got her more regular thanks to baby pro-biotics and taking her to the chiropractor.

  5. Um, my seven year old is INFAMOUS for clogging toilets....and has had this special talent since birth. And Park City is the ultimate test of any colon. Professional athletes come here to train? Well, I give people who are "regular" the same challenge. Come to Park City, and REALLY test your colon.

  6. Boy, do I have a story.......
    First, I dress baby girl really cute and pray she doesn't poop herself. Next, I dress myself really cute KNOWING I won't poop myself. Then, we head out to target (because Target is THE place to hang out when you have children). Baby girl decides to poop. No problem, I head into the bathroom to change her........when I lift her legs to wipe her bum bum.....she decided to "poop" again. ALL OVER ME! My face, my blouse, my arms, you name it..it was pooped on. Let me tell you, trying to wash myself off in a Target bathroom while holding a two month old, and having every lady in there stare at me (and probably wonder why I smelled so bad) was no fun.

  7. I bought it because I thought the name was funny and it ended up working great

  8. Yay Lindsey! I have to agree, probiotics and a good chiro can sort out many things! No pooping problems here, but I tried so many things for baby's painful tummy gasses before I researched probiotics. I hated the simethicone gas drops...knowing what they were made of just made me nauseous! Just in case anyone else is interested in an alternative treatment, that's my 2 cents!

  9. I love Boudreaux's. We like the large jar for at home and a little squeeze tube for the road. It's amazing stuff! I sometimes feel like my 2 year old is king of the diaper rash. He has a condition that causes mast cells to accumulate in his skin and GI and when those mast cells get irritated he gets hives and diarrhea that really irritates his skin and gives him terrible rashes even when I'm right on top of changing him as quickly as possible. He will kick and scream until I put the paste on his bum, and then he tells me his bum feels better. He has a trigger at least once a week, so you can imagine how much butt paste we go through. His little brother has far less run-ins with diaper rash, but I like to put it on them as long as they're wearing diapers just to help protect their cute little bums. It really does work fast and I love that it's easy to wipe off.

  10. It was Christmas day Cooper was 9 months old. Teething and beig sick had reeked havoc and he had diarhea and a rash that had almost every cream and home remedy used to fight it.It was Ugly and his skin was so raw it bled. I was at my wits end with his sad screaming and pain. I just wanted him to be better. I had put him down for the night, and he was up again in 15 just wailing. I laid him down on the floor in front of me and called my Mom to see if there was rememdy I had missed trying. As I did so I opened his diaper to torture him once more and he shot a purple stream of diahrea, like a missile, right in my face, Merry Christmas to me!! I screamed ran for the shower and I am sure cursed that diaper rash and its accomplices into submission.

  11. My poor little guy. Everytime eats to much fruit his poop causes his butt to get red and irritated. Butt Paste & baby wash work great.

    btw. You had me cracking up reading this article :)

  22. No doubt about it...it's great for lots of reasons besides diaper rash! My medicine arsenal would be 'bare' without it!!

  23. Butt paste has been in our family for lots of years now. I swear by it and give it to my friends that are just starting out having kids. it's as important as Tylenol on our family.

  25. I work in a NICU and we use it there for our babies. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is!

  26. My daughter got a terrible infection in her bowels following surgery and we went through a lot of butt paste at that time. The butt paste really does have a pleasant scent for an unpleasant job!

  27. I love butt paste! Thankfully my son didn't have diaper rash much, but when he did you better believe I lathered on that butt paste!

  28. Oh how I could have used this when my son was born! He had the worst diaper rash (due to me having to be in 2 different antibiotics) I have ever seen for almost the first three months of his life. It was a nightmare. Poor guy would just scream and scream because it hurt so bad. It seemed to take forever to go away but finally did after we tried every concoction known to man.
