Boudreaux's Butt Paste Dosage Information

There is no real "dosage" for Boudreaux's Butt Paste®. Instead, it is intended to be applied liberally as often as needed. The product is usually applied after each diaper change when used to treat diaper rash. It is important to use an especially thick layer before bedtime when your baby is most likely to remain in a wet diaper for a longer period of time.
 
For preventing diaper rash, though, there are a few different approaches. Some mothers with especially "rashy" babies may choose to use Boudreaux's Butt Paste for diaper rash prevention at every single diaper change, while others prefer to use it to prevent diaper rash only if the skin is beginning to appear a little red or irritated. Others may choose just to apply it at bedtime.

It may take a little experimentation to find just exactly what works for your little one.
 

General Information on Dosing With Boudreaux's Butt Paste

Dosage considerations for your baby include the following:
 
  • Generously apply the ointment with your fingertips. Do not try to rub it in, as this action is not helpful and can be irritating.
     
  • You may want to buy the largest size available, to make sure you do not try to "scrimp" on the ointment. Remember that it works by forming a barrier, and a thick layer is necessary to be effective.
     
  • You do not have to completely remove the previous application of Boudreaux's Butt Paste when changing a diaper. Simply make sure the area is thoroughly (but gently) cleaned. Make sure to let the skin dry before applying Boudreaux's Butt Paste.
     
  • Stop using Boudreaux's Butt Paste and consult your child's healthcare provider if the rash does not improve within seven days (or if it goes away but returns quickly).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Boudreaux's Butt Paste dosing, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
