My 2&1/2 yr old grandson has a pretty bad diaper rash he's in a lot of pain however he will not and never has let us give him OTC children's liquid ty?

Diaper rash: Please try a diaper rash cream such as Triple paste, and leave his diaper off as often as is practical to allow the skin to be free of moisture.

My 5 month old daughter has had some loose stools. No fever, eating normally, and active. She has a red bottom, relieved with diaper cream. Could it be teething?

Maybe: I can be hard to determine the exact cause of an infants symptoms... It might be related to teething or it might be a cold. Please monitor your child closely and give palliative care: 1. Cold compresses 2. Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) per the label's directions. 3. Maintain hydration, plain water is ok. 4. Call your pediatrician if the fever increases or persists for more than 3 days. ...Read more

How many wet diapers should my 8.5 month old have?

How many wet diapers should my 8.5 month old have?

Variable number: In infancy, we expect kids to urinate on a regular basis every 4-6 hours, day or night. The super absorbent diapers sometimes make this hard to monitor as many small voids are drawn into the dehydrating crystals in the diaper fluff. In hospitals we routinely weigh the diaper to determine output. Kids who like to drink often may go more but i worry when they go < once every 6hrs. ...Read more

Umbilical cord: Yes, a little dried blood might appear on a diaper after the umbilical cord falls off. It should not persist beyond a couple of days or be active bleeding. Keep the area clean.

If it bothers you, you can possibly work with a cbt therapist - but if you are okay with it, it's not a problem.

What counts as a wet nappy/diaper for my 11 week old bubba? Sometimes its only slightly wet other times its soaking?

Any wet nappy: Just like you, baby Bubba makes urine all day long. Unlike you, s/he doesn't have bladder control. So if more urine has collected in the bladder when it relaxes, there will be more urine in the diaper. An adult can go all day without emptying his/her bladder. ...Read more

2 year old kicks and screams every time he gets his diaper changed.. Is this just a phase? He doesn't seem bothered any other time

Just being a 2 year : 2 year Olds have figured out they can sometimes get what they want through kicking and screaming, especially if they have wimpy parents. He is feeling you out right now to find out if you are wimpy. If he finds you are, then it will spread to other venues. So hold your ground here and show him who's boss. Be loving but firm, he's not going to get his way acting like that. Good luck! ...Read more
