What brand of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

What brand of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

Diapers: I have 2 kids and i found that they did better with pampers and huggies vs. The store brands, as far as diaper rash goes. It's better to spend a little extra money...Pampers and huggies are better for the baby's skin and they also hold more, so that you have to deal with fewer "blow outs." diaper wipes can also cause a diaper rash, so water and soft paper towels are a good alternative. Good luck! ...Read more

Can feeding solids to early to a baby cause them to become diabetic?

Can feeding solids to early to a baby cause them to become diabetic?

Not likely: I can't put together early infant solids with diabetes of any form.

Some suggest a link with early feeding with obesity & dm2.Not dm1. ...Read more

Elecare and neocate and allimentium all caused skin rash and mucus in infant. What options are left to feed him?

Elecare and neocate and allimentium all caused skin rash and mucus in infant. What options are left to feed him?

Formula: Neutramigen, but it is similar to Alimentum. I have heard reports that sometimes using the ready to feed, not powder, helps. Have you considered that it might be soaps? There is corn in formulas, but I don't think there are any formulas without some form of corn syrup, corn maltodextrin, or corn syrup solids. An allergist may be able to see what it is. Banked breast milk might be another option. ...Read more

My toddler 19 month got eczema. I'm thinking may be its cow formula. So thinking to change her formula. Which formula is better soy or goat formula?

My toddler 19 month got eczema. I'm thinking may be its cow formula. So thinking to change her formula.  Which formula is better soy or goat formula?

Either, but...: 1. Eczema is rarely caused by a food allergy. Nothing wrong with trying, but it probably won't help. 2. Children over 1 year old do not need "formula". You can buy regular goat milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. 3. Any of these are fine nutritionally as long as they are only a minor part of the diet (less that 16 ounces a day). He/she should be getting mostly regular table food. ...Read more
