poor baby buns





my poor son! i don't know what is up with him but he keeps having days where he just poops all day and his buns get so sore. we do like 4 baths on those days b/c i cant touch him. he gets so raw. i really, really didn't want to put a diaper on him after his bath. i wanted him to get air on his buns so he could heal, but i really didn't wanna clean up after him if he let loose on my carpet. then i remembered i had some cloth diapers from when he was born that i used for burp cloths. i dug em out and put one on him attached with a couple pins. and i added some powder haha! he hasn't peed or pooped (yet) and he seems to be feeling better. i cant get him to drink plain water, which upsets me b/c he needs to. so i got him a new cup with a straw to hopefully get him to acquire a taste for it. its a lightning mcqueen cup and he has fun with it. he, of course, tips it up like a regular sippy cup so i tell him he needs mommy's help. he throws a fit for a second or two but then he gets excited about it haha! he's so darn silly! he drank most of the water in it too. so i'm happy about that. i'm putting a regular diaper back on him when he goes to bed, but i just wanted him to not hurt anymore. i feel so bad for him when that happens to his buns. he seems to b e doing ok at the moment. the morning will tell if we have to repeat todays baths and cloth diapers. hey, as long as it helps him...

Ha ha, sorry but you really need to brush up on your real diapering skills.

that's so sad...diaper rashes have got to be the worst!

damn terry, cant u say anything nice? the point was so his butt could air out and not have anything touching it. the diaper stayed on and caught his pee, which is exactly what i wanted it to do. my diapering skills aren't the issue here.
