Baby Has Hard Bowel Movements

I have a happy one year old daughter who has always had problems with harder than normal bowel movements. When she was just a few months old we had to put her on sorbital(sugar water). I hated having to do this and started feeding her prunes and other foods that I thought would help. She's now drinking milk and it's gotten worse. She's not constipated she actually goes 4-5 times a day, but it's in rabbit pellet form. I hate to be so blunt, but I'm hoping that someone has some ideas on how to cure this without over-the-counter meds. I...

Gerber Life Insurance?

I got this peice of mail the other day and it was for Gerber life insurance. No idea what that is? I called and asked how things work with that but I am not, in my community no one I know of gets life insurance. My kids are young we are trying to teach our oldest how important it is to save. But Life Insuarance I HAVE NO IDEA? I guess I am asking for some help to understand this. I understand when someone dies and they have this insurance it can go to unpaid bills, funeral and other unpaid expenses so in my kids case it would be there until...

Cloth Diapers & Diaper Rash

Ok, so my husband & I decided to use cloth diapers w/ the lil guy (at least when he's at home). It's going well, but we're having diaper rash issues. The lil guy has a slight rash on his bum, probably due to the late night diaper changes; he wakes up every 3hrs so that's when he gets changed. In any case, we use butt paste at each diaper change, but I guess it's not doing the trick..or maybe we're not putting it on thick enough. In any case, does anyone have suggestions for how to eliminate/minimize diaper rash when using cloth diapers?

What Should I Do for Diaper Rash?

I think my 2 month old son has some diaper rash on the inside of his thighs and his lower stomach above his diaper. I have never seen or felt diaper rash so I'm not sure if that is what it is. The skin is bumpy and feels leathery. I have applied some A+D Ointment on it but I'm not seeing a difference. Do any other moms have any suggestions of anything else I should be applying? Does Desitin work better? Thanks, D.

Gerber Waterproof Pants

Was wondering if anyone has any experience with these? We have been attempting to potty-train my 2 1/2 year old daughter with the Gerber padded underwear training panties, while trying to keep the soiled pants to a minimum, and the pull-ups seem to just serve as diaper for her. I've heard some mixed reviews, and was wondering if anyone has any feedback, suggestions or advice regarding these. She's about 30 lbs., and will be three in May. Thanks!
