Hand Foot and Mouth

My son was just diagnosed with Hand Foot and Mouth and I am reaching out to all you moms who have had a child with this. Between the internet and the Dr. and neighbors and family, I am getting confused about how long it is supposed to last, how contagious it is, and when it would be safe for him to be around other kids. The Dr. told me it's fine just as long as they don't share sippy cups because it is transmitted through saliva. The internet is saying that the blisters will open and the fluid inside is what contains the virus and at...

Crib Drool Puddle Ideas for Teething 6 Month Old

my 6 month old son is teething and when he sleeps (on his tummy - which dr says is fine- he rolls) he drools huge wet spots on his crib sheet. I have a waterproof cloth pad under the crib sheet, and am wondering if there is something absorbent that I can put on top or under his crib sheet that will keep the moisture away from his face. P.S. Would cloth diapers be a suffocation hazard? Could he get one bunched up around his airway?

Is This a Food Allergy

My daughter is 6 weeks old and has a "rash" on her face. It seems to come and go. After she feeds (Similac Advanced w/ Iron) it gets red. About 20 min later it's just bumpy. It started on her cheeks and is now on her eyebrows and ears and a little on the back of her neck. It is really rough feeling. My doctor said to put Aquaphor on it and keep a food diary to see if it's a food allergy. It's really not workng. We have a 8 week appointment in a week and a half. It's just bugging me.
