Easy homemade baby butt paste

Filed Under: household hacks, kids

baby butt paste, homemadeHave you ever gotten your baby up in the morning only to find that her butt looks as red as Santa's nose? This often happened with my oldest child. She would sleep right through a bowel movement, but scream bloody murder in the morning. Many of the baby rash ointments just wouldn't do the job of making her little butt happy again. I decided to try some things and make my own butt paste and see if this would help ease her (and my) agony.

  • Vaseline
  • Cornstarch
  • Non creamy Desitin
  • Maalox
Mix 1/2 cup Vaseline and half of the tube of Desitin. Add about 2 tablespoon cornstarch. Mix again. Add about 2 tablespoons of Maalox. Add more cornstarch or the other ingredients if necessary to bring the mixture to a more pasty consistency.

The result will be a white greasy paste that should be used at every diaper change until the rash is 90 % gone. Then switch to pure cornstarch. Cornstarch absorbs the moisture and will effectively eliminate the diaper rash.

Using Maalox in the mix will eliminate the red bleeding diaper rash and neutralize the acid that is causing that sensitive little baby butt to burn. The cornstarch will also do the same. This mix cuts a nasty diaper rash healing time.

Store in an airtight container so that the mix lasts a long time and will not dry out before your little one gets another bad rash. Don't forget to label the container so that it doesn't end up as a cracker spread by someone who thinks it might be a tasty treat.

    What a great idea! Love it.
    Unfortunately it won't work for me and my baby girl - she's in cloth diapers, and anything greasy (like vaseline or desitin) will ruin the absorbency of her diapers permanently. Luckily, she rarely if ever gets diaper rash with cloth diapers, so I feel very blessed! Someone did once mention that Boudreaux's Butt Paste is wonderful with cloth diapers, so if I'm ever in a pinch, that's what I've used, and it has worked quite well. Another bonus - doesn't smell like chemicals!
    Thank you so much for publishing this wonderful alternative! :)
