Progress

I just wanted to thank all you guys for your ideas, and sympathy. Where would we be without the internets!? I took Swistle's idea of giving the medicine just a drop at a time, which I kind of was already, but I took it to even more extreme forms. With the baby it still isn't working, unfortunately- he can drool out ANYTHING, it seems- but it worked with Eli. I also took Misty's idea and wrapped him in a blanket (gently!) and then straddled him so all I had to do was hold his face still with one hand and then squirt the meds with the other. So that made the process significantly quicker and less traumatic. I also went to the local health food store on Jess's suggestion and got chewable probiotics for Eli and a powder for Jameson. So hopefully that'll work out too, because Jameson's diaper rash is pretty epic right now. Ugh.

Also thank you to my mom for bringing me Kleenex and chocolate. Though, my scale does NOT say thank you. Most people lose weight when they get sick, but apparently I am not most people.

Oh, and the dishwasher is magically working again! So thank heaven for small mercies.

fyi--horrendous diaper rash--kids on antibiotics can get a yeast diaper rash that won't be cured with regular Desitin. My daughter just had one a few weeks ago, and the diaper rash was so bad her poor little bottom was raw and bleeding. We got a prescription for Vusion and it cleared up quickly. (Not saying Jameson has it, just something to keep an eye on.)

Lisa- I definitely AM watching for that; I remember well when my nephew got that while I was babysitting him. Worst diaper rash ever! And then Adelay had it once when she was a year or so, too, and yeah, it was BLEEDING. Just horrible. So I'm watching for those telltale spots!

Have you tried cornstarch? I used that on my kids' diaper rashes - even the bleeding ones. It works quickly and well.

I don't know if this works on a yeast infection.

Good luck!
