As a mom of two young boys, I’ve had my fair share of diapering situations. I’ve been pooped on, peed on, dealt with all kinds of diapers, diaper rash, poop explosions and the list goes on and on. However, we had one notable diaper disaster when using cloth diapers with Knox that still cracks me up.
We were at work, Knox was playing in his play yard, and I hear my mom yelling “Knox?!! What are you doing?!!” Then she starts saying “He’s peeing! He’s peeing out of his diaper! It’s everywhere!” I’m like, “what is going on here??” She runs him to the changing area, undoes his one-piece outfit (like a Jon Jon with buttons between the legs) and… nothing. She starts telling me, shocked, that I forgot to put a diaper on him! I am adamant that, no, I did NOT forget his diaper! I am not that scatterbrained, even on a bad day. No way! I continually refused this accusation, while she laughed and basically treated me like a crazy person that had lost the entirety of her mind. We proceeded to argue about this situation while Knox giggled at us, and finally, I walked back over to his play yard where, amidst the mess of toys, sat a crumpled green cloth diaper (complete with turdlet). Apparently, a one year-old Knox did not feel like playing with a dirty diaper on and took matters into his own hands.
He unfastened the Velcro through his outfit and let the diaper drop between his legs, through his shorts, and kept right on playing! It was after this incident that we had his Velcro diapers converted to snaps because after a few minutes alone in his pack n play, we discovered this was not going to be an isolated incident! This was right after he peed through his outfit…
… and approximately one minute later. My tiny nudist!
Hee hee! He was so little and cute! A not-so-funny diapering problem, however, is diaper rash. I think moms are always looking for a product that actually works well, and one that definitely does is Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. I know, I know, butt paste sounds funny, and that’s actually what made me notice it in the first place (never underestimate the power of clever naming!), but what made me keep using it is the fact that it WORKS!
How cute is this box that Boudreaux’s sent me? Love. I’ve used Boudreaux’s on Knox before, Brody hasn’t had much diaper rash to speak of using cloth diapers, but if he does, I’ve always used “normal” (aka not cloth diaper-safe) diaper rash cream, I just use a disposable liner in the cloth diaper first so it doesn’t get all over it. The one time I used normal stuff without one, it stuck like glue to the cloth and never came out- oh, well, live and learn! Boudreaux’s Butt Paste smells good, but not overwhelmingly perfumey, and goes on smoothly and really protects their little bums. I give it an A+!
If you don’t already love Boudreax’s, give it a try, and if you do, well, here’s a reason to love them even more: they’re about to give one of you a $100 Visa gift card! That will buy a lot of diapers, people, whatever kind you use! Of course, you could always splurge on something for yourself, too, like a nap. Oh wait, they don’t sell those, do they? Well, a pedicure, then!
