How do you describe motherhood?
It is beautiful, messy, joyful, exhausting, blissful, fulfilling, rewarding. Being a mother is the most incredible gift one could ever receive. There are moments of absolute “what on earth am I doing,” of course, but the little arms that just threw a handful of crackers across the room or dumped strawberry jam on the dog’s head wrap themselves around your leg, the most innocent eyes look up at you and with a smile on a cherub face, you hear, “I love you Mommy.” Motherhood brings out the best in you. Selflessness, bravery, courage, strength you never knew possible, a bottomless well of unconditional love. It is perfection and a time to be cherished. One also full of many, many life lessons that can only be learned from a child that requires a child-like opening of the heart.
Motherhood is also extremely busy and sometimes stressful. We need all the support we can get. What once took a village has now been handed off mostly to a mom to handle on her own. But that is another post for another day.
A way I love to support mothers is by providing quality products that they can feel confident using on their precious babies.
One of those quality products is the Baby Booty Balm. Not meant to be the butt of funny jokes. Rather, a healing and soothing diaper cream that is full of nourishing, organic, herbal goodness and clean ingredients you can trust, and free of a laundry list of things that should never touch your baby’s skin but is commonly found in most other diaper creams. It is also a perfect balm to be used for a rash on baby's face or even a heat rash! My middle child got a rash on his sweet little face every time he was cutting a tooth, and the Booty Balm was wonderful in helping to soothe and moisturize the scaly, irritated, red skin.
What causes diaper rashes?
There is no one cause for diaper rash. Things like wearing a wet or dirty diaper for too long, wearing a diaper that is too tight, antibiotic use, bacterial or yeast infection, sensitive skin, allergy or sensitivity to the chemicals in some diapers (see below to my soap box about ingredients and what is allowed on baby’s skin), are some of the reasons diaper rashes on sweet little baby bums occur. Generally, making a few simple changes like more frequent diaper changes, clean ingredient diapers or a clean diaper rash balm/ointment help with diaper rash prevention. Sometimes treatment is required.
What makes the Baby Booty Balm so special?
Top 5 Reasons:
- Handcrafted with 100% organic ingredients
- Full of herbs picked for their specific properties
- Soothing, gentle, effective
- Free of endocrine disruptors, fragrances, and toxic preservatives
- It WORKS!
Ingredients are everything. It has become second nature for me to look at the ingredients of anything and everything before I purchase. Why? No matter the beautiful marketing and perfect, flashy wording on the front of the product, what is contained inside is either going to promote or hurt health.
