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!!

A Few Cloth Diapering Questions

Hello Mamas! After having a diaper service for the past three months, I am now starting my own cloth diapering journey using pockets and AIOs. But I have a few questions for the experienced out there... 1. I'm considering getting a diaper sprayer. Are they worth the money? Or would using disposable diaper liners be a better option to minimize the serious messes? 2. Are there any diaper rash creams that can be used with cloth diapers? I keep seeing that you're not supposed to use them, but I don't really know why. What else can I do...

Mixed Race Infant Hair Care

I am due to have a mixed race (african american & white) little girl in Feb. I have started to stress out because, I don't know how to take care of nappy hair. I know it shouldn't be washed every day, and I know the adults use grease and deep conditioners and such. But what about when they are first born? How do I take care of her hair? I don't want it to get brittle and break off. Any ideas and/or product recommendations would be great.

Looking for a Safe Natural Remedy

I'm looking for a safe natural remedy to get rid of herpes. When ever I get a really bad cold I always end up getting herpes in and around my nose. I think it must be from blowing my nose so much which cause my skin to become extremely agitated. My OB/GYN doesn't want me to use the Rx I have since I'm 14 weeks pregnant. I always feel extremely ugly when I get one and don't like to go out in public. With out meds I'm afarid it will take forever to clear up, since I still have my cold. So any help out there to help me clear up my nose...

Baby Lotion Recommendation for Son's Dry Skin

Hi moms. I'm looking for recommendations on which brand of baby lotion has worked best for your baby's dry skin. With the colder, drier weather my 10 month old son's skin has gotten pretty dry. After I give him a bath at night, I've been putting on lotion (mustela and johnson's brand) or Johnson's baby oil (doesn't seem to work at all) but his skin is still dry. I used Aquaphor on the really dry areas and this works ok but the problem is that you'd need to use a half the tube to moisturize all his arms and legs. So, I'm looking for some...

Advice About Rash

I have an 11 month old girl. We have been very lucky with diaper rashes up until this point. The only time we see anything it is just a couple of bumps if she has sat in a diaper with a bowel movement for any length of time. It seems like lately her BM's have been more sneaky so she's had a few bumps here and there. My mother is the main source of care when my fiance' and I are working. The other day my mom talked me into putting a little fresh aloe on the little bumps. Well now it is very red and dry. I believe she had a little reaction to...
