Severe Diaper Rash - 18 Month Old Boy

My son has a severe diaper rash. He is 18 months old. It seems to get worse every day for over a week now. His skin is bleeding in several places.

Seeking Some Advice About How Much Formula I Should Be Feeding My Five Month Old

I am having an issue with getting my five month old to eat her bottles. She was only eating about 20 oz, so i went to the doc's and asked them how much she should be eating and he told me that she should be closer to 30-32 oz a day.
