Did I do a good enough job explaining how well Baby Butz cream works? I had 5 min to pitch…we all did.
There were about 40 businesses represented by their inventors/owners. Some really interesting ones, some not so interesting…but then again…what makes diaper rash cream interesting?
I wonder if I was entertaining enough to capture their attention. Was my story compelling enough?
Pictures would work, but if I were to show pictures of Demitri’s poor butt the way it used to look like raw hamburger, I would be classified as a bad mother. As much as I want to show people how well the product works I certainly don’t want to stop using this cream just to take those pictures in fear of repeating the days of pain and misery for my child and me.
So, while it would be awesome to get called to do the pitch in front of the Dragons and get national exposure, it’s just as awesome knowing that Baby Butz cream is being used in Hospitals NICU wards, Pediatricians are recommending to their patients, moms are talking to moms and that it’s helping so many people.
Even if I never sold another jar of Baby Butz cream, I would still be making it for my son.
We met at the women of distinction awards. You have truly changed my life and the lives of my children. I recommend Baby Butz to everyone even my children’s Pediatrician and even buy it for gifts. You are my hero and I was so happy to meet you. You truly understand what it feels like to look at your child and have no help or answers and now you gave us one. I cannot wait to see the other things you have in store and you will always be my hero.
Diaper Bag essentials.
Yesterday we were talking about this very subject on Facebook, and there were such great ideas that we thought it would make a great blog post.
The ideas that were supplied by you as well as some of the things that we thought of are listed below:
Baby wipes: Have travel-sized packs on hand to clean baby after a change, and to wash faces and hands after a snack or a meal.
Blanket: receiving blankets are always handy for wrapping up baby, burp cloths and of course if it is cooler weather bringing an extra warm blanket is always a good idea.
Bottles, formula and ice packs: If you bottle feed baby (whether it’s formula or breast milk), be sure you pack a couple of bottles (and ice packs) in case baby gets hungry, you never know when you could get delayed and being prepared will help make your unexpected delay less stressful.
Burp cloth: If you use special burp cloths bring an extra you never know who you may meet up with and you will have a fresh clean cloth for your friend.
Cell phone with paediatrician’s number: A cell phone is a wonderful tool to have with you when you are out and about, but the most important thing to do with your phone is make sure all your important phone numbers are programmed in your cell phone. If you need to make an emergency call you won’t have to try to remember a phone number.
Change of clothes: Packing an extra outfit or two is almost essential, you never know what kind of mess you might find yourself in
Change pad: By bringing a change pad, you will be guaranteed that you always have a clean area to change your baby.
Diapers: This one should be implied, we didn’t think to add it to the list till much later in the Facebook conversation. Generally if you pack one diaper for every hour that you are gone for, then you should be okay.
Diaper rash cream: Only the best will do for your precious little one, so make sure you have a jar of Baby Butz cream.
Extra pacifiers: If your baby uses them, you won’t want to be caught without one if they throw it out of the stroller, or it gets lost in the car seat.
Medications: If your baby is currently taking something make sure you have it with you. Also mentioned was gripe water and prune juice.
Plastic bags: Also mentioned by you was the need for plastic bags for soiled diapers, and for leaky bottles too.
Playthings: Toys were also mentioned, and they could be small items such as teething rings or rattles.
Snacks: Healthy snacks (such as almonds, dried fruit, carrot sticks, etc.) will keep you from splurging on chocolate and chips when you’re out and about, and finger foods and juice boxes for your older child can be helpful as well.
Sunscreen: Babies older than six months should wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Don’t forget to put it on your wee one even in winter months
Water: Water is important for you to keep yourself hydrated, but also to use with a corner of your receiving blanket for quick cleanups of you, your child, or their toys.
Hand Sanitizer: Having hand sanitizer in your diaper bag can save you when you find yourself in a location where soap and water are not available.
Mosquito Netting: This is great in the summer to have to put over your baby’s stroller when you are out during times when there are a lot of mosquitoes. Keep your baby safe.
Kleenex: Runny noses, sneezing, sniffling and to be used as a napkin in a pinch, Kleenex can be a life saver.
Do you have anything in your diaper bag that we have missed, or perhaps we mentioned something that you never thought of. Please leave a comment below to let us know what you think.
Testimonial from Doctor Janet Grabowski:
I am the Pediatrician who has cared for Demitri since birth. Unfortunately, Demitri has significant medical issues and is unable to take food by mouth. He needs to be fed a liquid diet by a tube that goes into his stomach. He is fed overnight. He is also unable to do his own toileting, therefore must be in a diaper.
Demitri’s mother, Majda, developed a cream specifically to help Demitri’s significant diaper rashes. Because of his feeds overnight, he has a wet and dirty diaper every morning and was getting very signiciant rashes. None of the typical diaper rash creams helped him. The cream Demitri’s mother developed, however, has kept the skin in his diaper healthy. Since she has been using it, Demitri has never come in with a diaper rash. Mother has also used it around the site where his feeding tube goes into his stomach and the skin in this area has also always looked healthy since she started using her cream.
Majda has now developed and is marketing this cream as Baby Butz and because of its success with Demitri I am recommending it to my patients.
