  • is it okay if he is splashing around (he gets a little crazy in the bath) to use baking soda? will it iritate his eyes/mouth if he splashes too much??

  • The baking soda shouldn't harm him at all. Might taste strange and he may not like it in his mouth. But he should be ok.

    We would do hydrogen peroxide/water mix on our son. He was always breaking out when we brought him home, after a few weeks, stopped using baby wipes and he got better. So we would dip him in our hydrogen peroxide/water mix and use disposable dishclotes to wipe his booty. Then a little light dusting of corn starch. Everything else would break him out.
