Seriously? I do a favor and end up paying for it...UPDATE...another update

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

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.

Butt paste is fairly expensive. If you want a cheaper option, I have a friend who swears by the walmart brand a&d.

Show her the reciept so you can be reimbursed. That is ridiculous of her.

I found Desitin works best, and the price is reasonable.

organic coconut oil. weird, I know but it works the best



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

I swear by A&D. It heals the rash in hours. And since your kid is older you can use it for other stuff too! That poor baby :-( maybe have a sit down with mom when she picks baby up and tell her how to avoid such rashes? I had to do this with a girl I went to high school with and I had to teach her how to wash the babies bottles. She honestly just didn't know!

Butt paste or coconut oil.

We also use zinc a and d ointment.

You're a good mommy!


Thanks,  I am just trying to figure out who sends a four month old for the day with not enough supplies for the day.  There is no way she could have thought he would only need three diapers and two bottles in 11 hours.

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.

I use Anti Monkey Butt Paste. Funny name, but it totally works!

Yeah, I don't think so. I would be calling her ass back to the house.

2 out of 3 of my kids are sensitive to a&d ointment, it made them worse :( never used it on my 3rd (she's a cloth wearer).

Quoting Roxygurl:

I had a cousin do that to me too, I prefer a&d ointment myself.
