What "Weird" Food Do You Eat?

Hi Moms, I posted on Facebook that I was eating a cheese and pickle sandwhich with mayo. I am NOT preggo! Needless to say, I got a lot of responses about how weird that was! Which made me wonder what kind of "weird" food do you or your family like to eat (whether you're pregnant or not!)?

Help with Diaper Rash.

My 5 month old daughter has a horrible diaper rash. It is blood red and has what looks to be blisters that bleed. I have done everything I know to treat it, I have used vaseline, diaper rash cream, cream for a yeast infection everything I could think of. The only other thing I could think of is maybe she's allergice to the diapers. Any suggestions. I am going to take her to the dr on Monday but I was wondering if there was anything else I could do in the meantime.

Parents Choice Formula and Diapers.

Just curious how many of you actually buy and use Parents Choice Formula and Diapers. Currently we are using Symalac for forumula and Huggies for diapers. My husband would like to try the Parents Choice because mainly it's cheaper than what we currently buy. Just trying to get some opinions on what others think about the products. Thanks! :)

Diaper Issue at Night

My 8 week old daughter is starting to sleep for longer periods at night. YIPPIE! Last night she slept for almost 5 1/2 hours at one time. I was so pleased and thankful to get a nice amount of sleep. However, when I went to get her after she woke, she was soaked. Her diaper had saturated during that time and leaked. We have been using the Huggies Newborns. She is a tiny little girl and the newborns are all that fits. The size 1 is way too big. I felt so bad for her as her entire pj outfit as well as the sheet were soaked. Do any of...

Almost 6 Month Old Not Digesting Solids, Help.

My baby girl will be 6 months this week and is having the hardest time digesting solid food. She has shown allergies to rice and oatmeal cereal, rash on her cheeks, so we have stopped those. She absolutely loves to eat the baby food but most of it is binding her up and she is going 3 days without a bm. We end up giving her prunes to help her digest. She is breastfed and has been very sensitive to everything I eat. I am not sure where to go from here. We have been giving her Baby Bliss Gripe Water since she was a few weeks old and it...

Hi Moms, So far my Hubby and 2 yr old have come down with some nasty 48 hr stomach bug and I feel I'm destined to get it! Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and trying to do everything to prevent myself from catching it but that's very hard considering how much my 2 yr old needs me. Does anyone know if it's safe to take Emergen-C while pregnant along with my Prenatal Vitamins? It's a Vitamin C powder you mix with a drink and it also contains 1000 mg of Vitamin C, 32 Mineral Complexes & B Vitamins. My Hubby thinks it's perfectly...
