ohh thank you so much, so my son and i just traveled to Ca on the plane which he did fine but a week later he had stuffy nose which im using saline and nose sucker, cough, spits up sometimes and the dr put him on ammoxacilian and now he has a horrible diaper rash that i am using deaitin for but nothin seems to be helping him and its been about a week since we went to the dr. He is also teething early to i have been giving him tylenol for that whenever he gets extra fussy but that seems to be 90% of the time. Im going crazy and i feel so bad. What can i do?

 He could have a yeast infection from the meds. Not a big deal but will need a cream for it, some Dr's will call it in or you can make your own.

Happy Hiney (Diaper Rash Cure)

 

Equal amounts:

  • Anti-itch cream (.01% hydrocortisone)
  • Anti-fungal cream (such as lotrimin)
  • Desitin

 Mix together and add enough Maalox (anti acid) to make a usable paste.

Welcome to the group!!  I'm sure you are doing things fine.  He looks adorable in the pic.  Is there a specific area that you think you are lacking?  There are thousands of military moms here that can help you through your situation.

Hi, welcome to the group. It can be scary when you are on your own with your first little one! Definitely check out the babies group, and ask your doc about the diaper rash. It's pretty common with an antibiotic though. My babies are all grown up, but the best tip I have is leaving the diaper off when you can. And be sure to keep the area clean and dry. Good luck!
