I've been dreading the day that I have to potty train. I guess it might make my life easier in some ways but also harder in a lot of ways - like having to find a smelly public restroom everywhere we go. I'm not sure William is ready yet so I haven't really put any pressure on myself to make it happen, at least not until Frederick is a little older. Having two kids in diapers is not ideal but neither is potty training a two-year-old while holding a newborn all day.
I've been lucky so far (knock on wood) to have not had one of those often-heard diaper stories where the parent goes in the room to get the baby up from a nap and they've taken their diaper off and smeared poop on the wall. Please bless that I never experience that. Amen.
Will hates to have his diaper changed, but he wants me to know that he's messy. I often wait for him to get to a point where he asks to be changed, hoping that it will help him want to go in the toilet. Unfortunately, that makes for some pretty wicked diaper rash sometimes. It figures that he also hates diaper rash cream. I've tried at least three different diaper rash creams and none of them have worked very well, so when Bourdreaux's Butt Paste sent me some of their cream I figured trying it out couldn't hurt.
The first day I used it William had pretty mild diaper rash, but he did not want me to touch it so I knew it was sensitive and uncomfortable. I had to hold him down to put it on, but as soon as I rubbed it in he started giggling. Maybe it tickled, but the next day I noticed that the rash was gone so I'm going to bet that he giggled because it gave him some relief.
I've used it twice since then with the same results, so I guess it's safe to say that it works! Have you ever tried Bourdreaux's Butt Paste? Do you like it?
