Doctor insights on: Moms in diapers
Your age: Is not clear here, I am assuming you are not 47 years old. If you are old enough to answer this question and you have no problem with normal bladder function then it is not an appropriate request. Ask your mother why she is making this request. If she does not have a good reason, I suggest you discuss this with a trusted and responsible adult. ...Read more

My 2 month old baby had a poops diaper with streaks of red blood. He is breastfed, and mom has noticed an oversupply. Anything to worry about?
Yes: Visible blood in a baby's stool is a cause for concern. Sometimes, they can feed from a mother's cracked or bleeding nipples but swallowed maternal blood should be digested.

Spoiled kids have not learned to work for something that they really want. There is no work ethic- no lesson to really strive for something. They get what they want through manipulation, they develop a dysfunctional way of relating to people-parents. ...Read more
No way to know: People have a variety of fetishes or interests. Most do not cause any harm or keep them from living healthy lives with healthy relationships. It's like trying to ask someone "why" they like strawberry ice cream rather than vanilla. Everyone is different. If your fetish does not interfere with healthy relationships, it is not considered a problem. ...Read more
Yes: I use it when I suspect a diaper rash caused by yeast. I use it in conjunction with some kind of anti fungal cream such as lotrimin (clotrimazole). Yeast diaper rashes are usually in the creases (but not always). You can google candidiasis if you want to see some images. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
