Looking for Advice on Infant Skincare

My 5 month old daughter is very chubby and has very red, chaffed skin on the back of her knees. I'm sure it's because her legs are so chubby, but I can't find anything that helps it. I've tried Aquaphor, Vaseline, A&D, baby oil - nothing works. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!!

The Beauty Experiment - Would You Do This?

There was a woman today on Good Morning America that went one year without wearing makeup. She wanted to find out "what a man would do" - deodorant, MAYBE some gel, no jewlery, etc. and found that she loved it. but "society" didn't handle it too well. I can go either way - I don't wear a ton of make-up - mascara nor foundation. I MIGHT wear eye shadow when I meet candidates, but overall, I use the KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) method. The segment found that women spend up to $15K for beauty treatments during the year...ouch...that's a...

Yeast Infection in 9 Month Old?

My little girl always seems to be red in the diaper area, both inside her privates and on the outer lip area. Is there any cream I should be using to help reduce the irritation? Could it be reoccurring yeast infections? How can I tell the difference? I do notice that when I'm changing her diaper or she's taking a bath, she'll scratch the area with her hands (not sure if she's exploring her girly parts or if they truly itch). We go to the doc. for her 9 month check up soon, so I'll be asking more about it then. But for now, I thought I...

What Products to Use for an Infant Who Has a Rash

Hi I was wondering what products many of you recommend for an infant (2 month old) who has a very bad sandpaper like rash all over her body. Her back is actually peeling today since her skin has been so dry. I did take her to her Pediatrician who ruled out any illness. He stated it may be sensitive skin or she may be having a reaction to a food that I am eating as she also has very bad reflux along with it. I use dreft detergent on all clothes/linens that come into contact with her. I use Eucerin on her skin which does seem to help a...

Best Eczema Treatment

My son has always had bad skin. He's 20 months now and has a large circle on his left cheek that has really bad eczema (nothing anywhere else). We've been through the standard line up (Aloe, Aveeno, prescriptions, etc) and nothing seems to work. I'm waiting for the dr to call me back and hopefully prescribe a new medication but has anyone had any luck with any over the counter creams / lotions?

Hand Foot Mouth

Hi Ladies, My son (21 months) has been spiking a temp and developed a rash all over and sores in his mouth. He's miserable. So, I took him to the doctor today and he said he has 'hand foot mouth'. I guess my silent excitement that both my kiddos have avoided this is now gone. Any words of advice anyone can offer. The doctor said no meds will take care of it, we just have to manage the symptoms. Tylenol, Motrin and a combo of Benadryl & Malox. Just looking for some'we've been there' support. Thanks in advance!

Hypoallergenic Hair Products

I am very sensitive to dyes and fragrances and have to use lotions, soaps, and detergents that are hypoallergenic. I have tried several different shampoos and conditioners, but I haven't been able to find anything that doesn't irritate my scalp. I've tried Dove, Aveda, and more! Any suggestions? I have semi thick and wavy hair that I usually flat iron, so conditioner is a must. Thanks!

Natural Remedies for Red, Itchy Rash

My 21 month old boy has this large red rash on his bum/lower back. It started out small and didn't bother him and it was getting better but just this morning I got him out of bed and it is much worse and he is itching it now. The red areas are slightly raised and some areas are peeling. We are letting him run around with out his diaper as much as possible and we use Seventh Generation diapers so I know it isn't a sensitivity to his diaper. So, far we have just been using Earth's Best diaper rash onitment. I am wondering if any one has...

Sick of My Skin!

Anyone has any ideas or products that work well for acne? I had a lot of skin trouble after my first child and ended up having to spend a fortune to see a dermatologist. Now that the 2nd has come along so has my acne. I am planning on breastfeeding for as long as I can and the products the dermatologist had me on I can not use. I would like to find a product that works and is not too harsh on the skin as the prescription products. Any ideas?

Chicken Pox and Medication

Hi! Today my daughter broke out with what we believe to be the chicken pox. We are all fine with it and consider it part of growing up. I brought her to the dr this evening, just to make sure I wasn't misdiagnosing. He believes they are chicken pox, and wants to put her on a medication to help minimize the effects. From the little research I have done, the recommendations for the meds are more for older people, or people with weakened immune systems. She is a healthy little 5 year old. I guess my question is...did you use...

The Age Old Potty Training Question with a Twist

Hi All, My daughter just turned 2. For the past 6 months she has gotten extreme diaper rashes that nothing helps. The doctors want her out of diapers of any kind. At first switching to Pull-ups helped some but no longer, if anything I think it is worse. Also, I have tried every diaper rash creme and ointment on the market and available by perscription. Even cornstarch no longer helps. My daughter is interested in looking at the potty, but not in using it. She has a small one and also the large one. Does anyone have any suggestions, she...

I have used Aveeno diaper cream on my daughter since birth with no problems. But when she got a rash it didnt seem to do much to heal so on rashes I used Destin. Well aveeno can be hard to find so I switched to Destin full time and I noticed my daughter crys when I change her diaper and put the cream on. Almost like the cream is burning her. She also messes with her self alot more when I change her like something her. Has this happened to anyone else?

2 Questions: Naps and Bedtime

My son will be 4 months old in 2 days. My first question is about napping. This kid doesn't like to sleep... I have days where he might take a nap and others where he may take a catnap or 2 (like 15 mins. or so) and other days, he won't nap at all. I know he gets tired but he fights it. He doesn't have a routine, plus he likes to be held in order to fall asleep. The minute you put him down, 80% of the time he wakes right up and that's the end of the nap. Sometimes myself or my mom will hold him while he naps, but I can't do that all the...

Doc Says to Start Rice Cereal at 4 Mo

Hi moms, At my son's 4 month check up appt this morning, the doctor recommended starting rice cereal. I'm just a bit weary of this and here is why.... Brayden was born 3 1/2 weeks early, and I have noticed in the last few months that he is slightly behind in his developmental milestones- Not anything to worry about as he catches up quickly. He is also in the low percentiles for growth, but again, I was told that he is within normal limits and that it takes a little time to "catch up" when they are preemies. ALSO, Brayden also has ezcemca...
