So a neighbor needed a babysitter at the last minute so she could work.  Her baby is four months old.  

She brought him at 6:30 and I have him around 5. When she brought him he had a soggy diaper on so I changed him. I noticed he had a pretty nasty diaper rash so I looked for something in his bag to put on it.  Nothing there.  I had no sooner put the diaper on when he peed again and the little line on the diaper changed.  Seeing as he had a diaper rash I changed him again.  No biggie.  Then I realize I only have one more diaper.  She brought three diapers for the day.  I look further through the bag and there is one bottle and a can of formula with enough for maybe one more bottle.  Guess I am off to Walmart.  


My kiddo is 10.  What is the best butt cream to get?  This kid is super fussy and I am guessing his rash is part of the problem.  


Update. So I finally heard back from the mom.  She said her son doesn't normally go through that many diapers.  I told her that he had gone through almost all of them within an hour of being there.  I also asked about the formula. She said she had fed him before he came.  

Then she texted and said she was going to be late.  I told her I had bought diapers and formula.  She said he shouldn't have needed them. 


Also...she is in her early 30s and is married.  Her husband is on a weekend fishing trip.  She asked last night on the neighborhood FB page if someone could watch him. 

UPDATE 2 -  Around 7 last night the dad came and picked up the baby. He was in shock when I told him everything. He gave me $50. He was very apologetic.  He said he had no idea where his wife was and that she hadn't been scheduled to work. He said it was possible she covered for someone.  He wasn't happy at all.  He also said next time they needed a sitter he would make sure that everything was taken care of for Baby.

Extra strength destin. Also get some corn starch, nd get some a&d. Put the Destin on then a&d then the corn starch. Make sure at each change to wipe it all off then put more on.

Do they sell that at Walmart?  How much is it?  I am already having to buy diapers for the kid and formula. So irritated.
