  • About the baby, you mean? No, that baby is pretty well padded in there, so don't even worry about that. But ouch! Hope you're okay...

  • That must have hurt. Your baby is just fine it might have gotten scared though if you screamed. Just make sure you take care of the burn you dont want to get any infection, that can harm the baby but the burn a lone..no.

  • If you have original A&D ointment, put some of that on it to sooth the burns.

  • Yeah, the baby's going to be fine, more likely than not. I would recommend aloe though, if you have any. If not, your local pharmacy should have some, it's fairly inexpensive. Just apply a thick coating and let it do it's thing. I burned my hand, applied aloe and the next day it was fine. A few weeks later after soaking for an hour in a hot tub, you could see where the blisters would have been, the skin was all white around them, but they never blistered, and with no blisters, no chance of infection. GL!

  • This is going to sound crazy but it really does work, put mustard on the burn and leave it there for approx 20 mins and the burn should go away
