Exposing just how Singleton I am

While online shopping for a baby gift and meandering through the long-listed baby registeries I came across something that truly stunned me.  I've heard of diaper rash and such, but the name of this product had me second guessing just how clueless I really am when it comes to parenting children in diapers.

Butt Paste?
After starring at the product description and wondering if this was an appropriate gift to throw into the check-out basket for my boss, I decided that purchasing something of the sort was probably not the best career move. 

I'm a 30-something and obviously extremely in the dark when it comes to understanding the needs of pooping and peeing babies donned in diapers.  I thought I knew quite a bit.  Turns out, I am so inexperienced and so far off the radar a satellite couldn't find me.

I'll say it again.  Butt Paste?

And to think back in my day they just had good old petroleum jelly.

I'm AmericanBridget and now I know why they cook babies 9 clueless people like myself who turn in to expecting mothers have enough time to educate themselves on all the random products and needs.  Holy Moses.  Butt Paste?


  1. It works great! Especially for bad rashes like my boy had! ;)

  2. LOL I thought the same thing back before I was a mom. Now I know more about butt paste than I ever thought I would.

  3. I had the same thought when I first saw this, but now I buy it for every new mom! The stuff works wonders.

  4. For me it's not just the name of the stuff, it's how the whole thing looks. It kind of looks like a tub of wood filler from Home Depot. But that's just me.

  5. Fancy schmancyt trendy words for ointment... :)

  6. I'm with ya on this one. Fuck it.

  7. This stuff is the bee's knees!
    My lil' one had so much trouble when she was little...this stuff was a life saver!

  8. Ugh. It's so gross. And yet, it works. I babysit all the time, and all the baby mamas have this . . . I get grossed out using it just cause of the name!
