As you know, I have a busy 13 month old. I would like to call him a toddler, but alas he prefers crawling to walking, it is such a quicker way to get from point A to point B at this time.
Over the course of the last month, Kyle has had 3 very bad diaper rashes. Usually Boudreaux Butt Paste or Triple Paste will help, but the last rash was a real doozy. I ended up at the pediatrician's office and this was her recommendation:
Mix equal parts of the following well in a small tupperware container with a strong lid (this will make it easy to carry where ever you go).
Original Desitin Cream
Ilex (pronounced eye-lex and is a burn cream that can be found in most hospital/clinic pharmacies sold over the counter)
Apply mixture to baby's clean and dry bottom. Then apply prescription topical Nystatin (a yeast combatant) on top of that.
I started applying the remedy around 3pm yesterday and this morning his bottom looks about 40% better already. Yay! The doc said once the rash is cleared up just to watch for it to come back, if it does, start the remedy right away.
I am so glad I went in and Kyle is much more comfortable today. Now we just need to work on the teething sore gums. Ahhh, a mother's work is never done. :)
Happy November! Won't you join me in 30 days of gratitude? Yes, I am one day late, but better late than never.
Studies show that having an attitude of gratitude daily can benefit a person in many ways. By focusing on the positives in our lives, our overall outlook improves and this can improve our well being and our relationships around us.
I myself tend to look at the glass half empty. I would love to shift in to a gratitude mode. What better month that November to do so.
Each day this month I will feature an artist/crafter from Etsy with an item that is related to gratitude some way in addition to listing at least 3 things I am grateful for each day. I figure if I am always looking for things to be grateful for my list it will be impossible to have a negative attitude right?
The above art is my own.
