G smells like a dirty hippie. Stereotype? Maybe. But seriously. My kid smells like she just got done clambaking a Volkswagon at a Grateful Dead concert. The culprit? Earth Mama, Angel Baby - Bottom Balm.
Grace's bottom has definitely seen better days. We took her to the doctor last week about a little rash she'd developed along with a pesky diaper rash that wouldn't bugger off. The doctor used one of the most irritating words in my parental opinion and told me it was 'viral'. Viral - the blanket term used for seriously annoying things that they can't help you with.
And so, after investing in every type of butt cream, balm, and salve we could find - I decided to take a trip to the local health food store and get in touch with my inner naturalist. As researched by G's Na Na, Weleda baby cream and Earth Mama got rave reviews. $30 later, my little lady is running around nude and reeking of patchouli.
G is snoring now, fast asleep in upstairs. Her bottom is soothed and she is resting peaceful. The smell of patchouli and jojoba oil is soothing and makes me feel a little less crappy about her sore little tush. Hoping this stuff does the trick!
