her butt, my feet

Being that Amara is nearly 4 years old, I thought I never would see the day when I would blog about diapers. And honestly, aside from pics of her rear end here and here and a mention of her potty routine, I've been lucky enough to stay clear of any talk of leak prevention and stretch tabs.

So I find it ironic that when this the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas asked "What is your favorite beauty secret or product?", you would think a self professed diva would think of something more glamorous than A & D Ointment.

Yes, a common treatment for diaper rash is what I'm offering up to the discussion.

Being a first time mom, I was armed with more A & D than I knew what to do with. So when we potty trained Amara, I found myself with a few extra tubes of ointment and no Amara butt to apply it to.

But somewhere along the way, in one of my obscure parenting magazines, I read that A & D did wonders on ashy heels. It made sense since the ointment could also be used for dry, chafed skin. So every night after I shower, I put on my favorite Bath and Body Works lotion then toss on some A & D to make my feet ready for sandal weather. Such an easy fix!

Now if only I could afford a weekly pedicure...


  1. Ashy heals are part of our DNA, Nik! Use as much A&D as you want but you cannot run from genetics! The "ash" will return with a vengance!!!

  2. I've read that Vick's salve is good for ashy heals. I've never heard of using A&D. Thanks for the tip; I'll give it a try.

  3. That's a great tip for anyone with dry sin on their feet!

    Came from CHBM!

  4. I will have to give this a try....I have the worst heels EVER!

  5. What a great idea! Youngling is about to start potty training, so we'll have a tube or five to use up. Thanks!
