Baby Is Sick

My daughter is almost 4 months old and she has diarrhea. I know that there is not much that I can do for her but does anyone have any suggestions. I bf so I am trying to feed her a little more often to keep her hydrated. She is not crying all of the time or anything just wondering what I should do. I am changing 2-3 messy diapers an hour sometimes more. She is getting a horrible diaper rash so I am hoping to remedy this quickly. Thanks.

Breastfed Infant Is Suffering from Constipation

I was wondering how any of you have dealt with an infant suffering from constipation. I have a two month old who was going No. 2 normally up until a few days ago. The first time he went once in a period of over 36 hours and has not gone since (going on 48 hours). I hear that it is very uncommon for a breastfed babies to be constipated. My first son never suffered from this. I contacted my doctor who said to insert a thermometer up you know what to help him out. I feel like there should be a less painful/uncomfortable options. Any...

Trying to Break Daughters Habit of Licking Her Mouth, It's So Chapped and Red

My daughter is 3 years old. She has developed this habit of licking all around her mouth. It's all red and chapped all the way around! We keep telling her to stop licking when we see her doing it. But she doesn't even relize when she is doing it. Is there something I can put on her that will protect the chapped area, maybe keep her from licking, but that isn't toxic if she licks it? Is A&D cream, petroleuim and lanolin, going to make her sick if she licks that? Maybe something that tastes bad so she will break the habit. Help! She...

What to Do with a 3 Yr. Old with a Possible Yeast Infecton?

My daughter has had what seems to be diaper rash down there, but she doesn't wear diapers, so I'm suspicious. She's complained of itching for about 4-5 days...we've tried various ointments but it doesn't seem to be getting better. Her entire area is red, inside and out. Normally, I'd take her to the doctor right away, but with the flu scare, I'm a bit anxious to take her in to a germ-filled waiting room for such a minor issue. Has anyone had a similar experience with their toddlers? Any advice? Thanks!

Baby Rash and Fever

I changed my baby's diaper yesterday (8pm) and saw that she had a major rash-sort of spot like and very sensitive and painful. I had changed her diaper about 2 hrs prior and she was fine. About 30 minutes before I changed her, I gave her homemade turkey and veggie pureed. At about 2am in the morning she started crying and when I took her she was at 100.1 (shes usually 97.9), so I gave her Tylenol and it went down to 98.7. Today, she's still at 99.7 and still has a rash, but she's eating well and playing. I feel awful. Should I be...

Severe Diaper Rash During Flu

My son who is 15 months old has had the flu for about 4 or 5 days now and has awful and I mean really awful diaper rash from all the diarrea he has had. What can I do to help clear it up and make it less painful. I am using just a spray bottle of warm water and paper towels to clean his bottom & was putting on generic Desitin but that doesn't seem to be helping. Any advice would be appreciate as we are both miserable and the doctor can't see us until next week.

Getting A&D Ointment off Clothes, Hair, and the Smell Out of the House

My adorable 2 1/2 year old niece just emptied an entire tube of A&D ointment on herself. While mom and dad were talking in the other room, she squeezed it out and rubbed it all over herself - from head to toe. Dad gave her a bath and washed her hair, but my sister says that her hair is still really greasy and gross. Her clothes are stained. Also, the smell is so strong that when you walk in the house, you are immediately hit with it! Anyone have any recommendations for my sis? How do we get my niece's hair clean again? Any ideas to...
