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.

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

I sent her a text she hasn't answered yet.

The only thing that worked on my kids was just plain cornstarch. It knocked out a rash in no time.

It'll help the diaper rash. My DD would get horrible rashes (though, she was allergic to something in the diapers). I left her diaper free for a little bit to help air her bottom out and not to irritate the diaper rash. If it's really as bad as it looks, this would be better for him.

Why would I leave him diaper free?

Quoting Anonymous:

Have the baby go diaper free. Don't use wipes, just a wet washcloth.

Desitin or a and d. Likle someoe else said, the A and D can be used for other things as well. I use it on my girls cuts and on my tattoos, lol. That was really negligent of her and makes me worry about that poor baby. Thank you for taking care of him.
