  • chicken pox, rubella or measels, maybe scabies....either way just give her a oatmeal bath and some lotion to relieve any itching or pain...then try to get a diff docs opinion or see a dermatologist...u need a referral so ask for one

  • It could also be the work of a rogue mosquito. My oldest daughter could stay outside all night and never get bitten, but my youngest looks like a bug buffet after about five minutes. Aveeno makes great baby stuff for any kind of rash or bug bite. Try some of their oatmeal soak. It's really finely granulated so it doesn't leave a mess in the tub.

  • If you plan to vaccinate her, don't catch up to them all at once! Goodness.

    I think you should get teh vaccine book by Dr. Sears, VERY informative and will help you out, they also have an alternative vax schedule in the back that you may find helpful. I respect your choice not to vax tho, my dd only has abut 1/2 of hers.
