Holden, my first, had quite the sensitive hinny. In the first few weeks I knew that Johnson and Johnson products were not for Holden. His booty would not settle for anything less than Pampers or Huggies. For awhile I would switch between whichever brand I could buy at a better price, but it came down to a lot more blow outs with Huggies for us. I do understand each brand of diapers fits each child differently. Just as I may not love a Fruit of the Loom under pant, you my dear mom friend may love them. We all have differently shaped bodies and some are more sensitive than others.
I also found after several months of shopping the best store for the best price on Pampers, driving out of my way to get a better deal, and hauling diaper boxes with a small child there was a light at the end of a dark shopping tunnel with Amazon Prime. Thank you Amazon for getting me the best deal with your subscribe and save every month! All I have to do is carry my diapers in from my front door step.
Now begins a very sad story...
The picture I shared above you will see Holden wrapped in a burp cloth. Holden was barely a year old when we had a staff transition at our daycare. Let me say until this point we had great experiences with the daycare we were at. In one week a sever rash had broken out. I had addressed the issue with our daycare ladies. Over the weekend I had done extreme trial and error with several diaper rash cremes and had little results. Going into the next week I had cleared it up to just a faint, but chapped red. By Wednesday that week we had a blistering rash. I connected with the daycare's Coordinator where I was accused of being wrong. At this point I started searching for a new center.
That next weekend I found resolve in wrapping Holden in a burp cloth with heavy Lotrimin and Aquaphor pasted to his butt. He screamed in pain when he pooped. We didn't even wipe just threw him in the tub to gently wash.
After a teary eyed heck of a time I had completely cleared the blistering rash over the weekend. I again called our Coordinator on Monday morning alerting her to my concern. I was finally called back on Wednesday and offered the opportunity to leave. On Monday the following week, we started a new center with a clear butt and have since had no issues with diapering. What they were doing or not doing I will still never know. What I do know is, I have the formula to successfully clearing up a diaper rash. I included links below to my favorite diapering products below....
