The Magical Miracle Cream

I wish the title of this post referred to something for stretch marks, but no such luck. I'm referring to diaper cream. We use Boudreaux's Butt Paste for the worst rashes. I highly recommend it for severe cases, though it isn't cheap.

Somewhere along the line in her short life, Amelia got the idea that "paste" fixes everything. If she has a tummy ache she'll pull up her shirt and ask us to put paste on it. If her daddy or I have a cut or a scrape she'll want to put paste on it. Even broken fingernails can require a paste fix up.

The other day Amelia noticed that her brothers all have a little cradle cap or dry scalp. She ran to her room and came back with Desitin to "fis it all bedder." She diligently put some diaper cream on each boy's head, and later went back for some more to "fis" the stork bite birth mark on Alex's forehead. How sweet!

What a great handy helper.

This reminds me of the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding who puts Windex on everything.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the "paste" clears up that dry scalp! :)

I knew I remembered you having a post on this! I'm picking some up tomorrow! Poor Ro- he's having what we think is a little reaction to the last (thank goodness) rotavirus vaccine (diarrhea). We're off veggies and pears, eating just rice and a little pedialyte for now. :(
