Arbonne ABC Product Line

My 11 month old son has excema on his face, arms and legs. I have heard that Arbonne ABC is a good product to use. Has anyone ever tried it or know anything about it?? Right now the dermatologist has him on hydrocotisone and we use Aquaphor and Eucerin, but it just isn't helping. I would love to get him off the steroid and find something natural that will help him.

Facial Skin Problems

Hello ladies, I am at the end of my rope trying to fix my skin problem. On my face I have 5 trouble spots. Two above my mouth to the left and right a bit and two below my mouth to the left and right a bit. The last one has just flared up a lot!!! It is under my left eye and is all red and puffy. They all started as dry skin and have become red and yucky with time. Sometimes they have dry flakes on them and sometimes not. Sometimes they do get better too. I have started washing my face once a day (with Neutrogena pore refining cleanser) ...

Taking Baby to the Beach!

We are taking our 10 mos old to Sanibel Island next month for not only his first beach trip, but his first trip of any kind. We will be flying and I wonder if anyone has any good suggestions for baby in flight and for the beach! We've packed ourselves for the beach many times, but never baby! I know there will be a million things we didn't think of! Also, because we are flying, it will be hard to take much big stuff...any suggestions or knowledge of places that may rent baby items short term?

Ramblings of a Frustrated Mom

I'm really frustrated. My daughter has been treated for a yeasty diaper rash for 3 weeks (nystatin cream). It actually went away and her skin looked great for about 4 straight days but we were still using the cream to be on the safe side. My mother has been watching her for the last 2 days and her bum is red and sore again. Every diaper rash she has ever had has originated at my mother's house. I always remind her to change the dipe frequently, check for poop frequently so she's not sitting in it, etc. My mom and sister often tell me that I...

Odor/product Removal Suggestions, Please!

I have two questions. The first: I walked in on my daughter (1-1/2 years old) as she was playing with the big tub of Aquaphor and it was all over her, her furniture, clothing etc. I cleaned most of it but there are large patches of it smeared into a 100% wool area rug. I tried to blot it out but no use. For those of you that don't know what Aquaphor is, it is similar in color and texture to Vaseline - maybe a little thicker. Is there anything I can do to get this out? The second question relates to a fabric handbag I bought on...

What to Add/leave off Baby Registry?

Hi - I am wondering what items other Moms have put on their Baby Registry, and what items you would leave off? Obviously, leave off clothes, but is there anything you wished you had put on that you didn't, or vice versa? Also, when it comes to things like bottles, should I register for a "variety" pack of sorts? Or, should I research basically everything in advance before putting it on the list? I've started researching the bigger items, strollers, high chairs, diaper genie, etc. so I can put on the items that have the best features or have...
