Well Simon is going on his 11th day with a diaper rash! It has waxed and waned, but is a bit better, at least no bleeding. He's still on antiobiotics so has diarrhea and I think that is the problem, that plus DH refuses to take it easy on him! He wants the diaper change over with asap so he wipes really fast!!! Which isnt helping. I know he's crying the whole time but it's much better to get some really water soaked clothes and try to pat mostly. but anyways, I guess I[m doing all the diaper changes while he has this rash.
What has everyone tried with great success? We're just using vasoline right now. I need to get more penatin (sp?). I tried one that was in a tube...cant remember the name, but it seemed to make him more read. I think the cure is for him to stop pooping 15 times a freaking day!!!! Poor little man.
Oh, and DO NOT google diaper rash! I saw the most horrific pictures!! I cant believe people would let them get that far. I was crying thinking about how painful that would be!!! I guess Simon's bum doesnt seem that bad after all compared to those pics.
