Baby has a cold, skin problems, gas. Wife is tired. I have a cold and could use a nap myself. Just very tired these days.

    Sorry to hear everything is out-of-whack.

    As for the skin problems…did you figure out the source? We ran into the same problems with Sophia…switched up diapers and formula until we found the right mix. If the skin problems are just around the diaper, you might try switching them up…unfortunately we found that about the only diapers she could wear were the Huggies Supreme. Which, lucky for me, are some of the costliest ones out there. Babies-R-Us has a “Supreme” store brand that is a little cheaper, but comparable in quality.

    If the skin irritation is all over, it could be an allergy to the milk or formula. We went to soy-based stuff and it all cleared up for Sophia (gas went away, too.) Of course, depending on how good your pediatrician is, they may or may not tell you that. We had to take her to another pediatrician to find that out.

    Good luck, and I hope you all are feeling tip-top soon…

    Thanks for the encouraging words. The doc diagnosed her as having eczema and that we should keep her face clean, and apply hydro cortisone cream. There are a handful of other things we’ll be doing, and hopefully this resolves. she has such a pretty face, its sad to see it all covered with red spots.

    Ohhhh… dang, I was way off. Sorry for the useless information, man.

    Sorry to hear she is all uncomfortable. I hope it clears up soon!
