I Knew I Forgot Something!

Whenever you go out of town with a 16-month old you are bound to forget something. Right? Well, over Thanksgiving I just had to forget the diaper rash cream. Ugh!! And, of course, that was time we started to have some "issues" in that department and I really didn't want to buy more because I have two tubes at home along with a big tub of Butt Paste (still the best, by far) at home. I couldn't leave this problem untreated. It would become a disaster for all those involved. What's a Mom to do?!


I remembered that when Caleb had a nasty case of diarrhea and thus, diaper rash, Chris' Mom and Grandmom suggested cornstarch for his little sore boozer. They said it worked the best at cutting out the sting. I was still skeptical, but I went ahead and found the cornstarch in my Dad's kitchen. We used it like baby powder a few times on Caleb's bottom and IT WORKED!!! He woke up every morning with far less rash and redness.

It is good to know that I have a back-up option for that annoying diaper rash if I am away from home. Cornstarch Works For Me!

Great tip! thanks for that. I always have cornstarch in the house but might not always have my fave Triple Paste around.
