How do you kick rash? Share for a chance to win!

Fact: I birth babies with rashy butts.

Olivia was the worst for sure because she always had some sort of redness and irritation that I was fighting.  It would get better for a day or two, and then all of a sudden Hello Red Butt Baybee.  But Ainsley was always rashy and now Adelle tries to fit right in too.

I would have sworn to you, over the past four years, that I tried everything to keep from getting diaper rash.  Different brands of diapers.  Keeping her super dry.  Keeping her super clean.  Only using wipes for dirty diapers but not wet diapers.  But still, my babies would end up with diaper rash and a bad attitude no matter what.  Bring on the diaper rash cream!

I'm not sure why it took me until kid #3 to figure out that I should be using diaper rash cream to prevent diaper rash instead of shaking my fists at the heavens and cursing it every time it showed up.  It's like, "AHA!  I am supposed to put this cream on her beefy little bottom all the time instead of just when it looks like it needs it!  Who knew?"

Everyone.  Everyone knew.

Except me, and maybe except you.  But now you know!  It is crazy how you can take care of babies for so long and feel like you actually know what you are doing, what with keeping them alive and fed and everything.  And then all of a sudden you realize that you were missing something very simple and very useful all along.
These butts are rash free!!!

Diaper rash cream.  With every diaper change.  Lucky for Adelle I discovered this revolutionary method in time to save her lots of sore butts and crankiness!

I've tried all different brands, and my very favorite for everyday prevention is Boudreaux's Butt Paste.  It smells good and wipes off easily.  I can't stand creams that are sticky and require lots of wiping to remove.  I don't have that problem at all with Boudreaux's Butt Paste (I use the Original Butt Paste, but there are a couple of other options - All Natural Boudreaux's Butt Paste and Boudreaux's Butt Paste Maximum Strength).  Plus it keeps away the burning heat of the evil Rashadon!

No Rashadon threatening to crush our Butt City!!

No matter what, every parent is going to have to deal with diaper rash at some point and will probably hit the Internet for ideas on how to fight it.  So tell us:
