Vicious Red

Holly has a Super Nova Diaper Rash. Beyond Red. I've tried
  • Medicated Baby Powder
  • Balmex
  • DermaCloud Fanny Cream
  • Baking Powder
  • Monistat
  • Lotrimin
  • Mycalog (Nystatin)

Nothing. It is worse today than ever. So back to the doctor we go. And home with a new ointment: Batroban. Apparently, she might possibly have a slight bacterial infection on top of the yeast. One fight at a time. Infection today, yeast tomorrow.

Here's the Simple Solution to that bare baby bottom dilemma: Flannel Backed Tablecloths.

I hoard them. Stock pile, really. Facts are facts and there are plenty of reasons at my house not to use cloth tablecloths for everyday (or even holidays yet, thus the stockpile). Who knew?

Turn those cloths inside out and for Holly's crib tonight, I have a ready to go cheap disposable stack of Plastic Backed Flannel Sheets , and maybe even enough to cover the living room floor tomorrow. We may survive this yet. :-)

(And the silver lining will be a very, very good reason to go buy new for the next holiday!)

ok...I know this sounds crazy and you may have already tried, but my 5 year old had terrible diaper rash and we did tea baths. We would brew VERY strong tea then dilute with water, usually in a dish pan in the kitchen sink and just let her sit and play, I do not know what was in it but it worked.

OK! I am up for anything at this point. Since Holly is milk protein allergy/lactose intolerant, yogurt is out. Tea bath sounds harmless. And if it might help Hooray. I'll let you know.
