You can use some creams with cloth diapers. I've used Balmex for eight months (as needed, not all the time) with no problems. But there are creams that are specifically safe for cloth diapers, like Grandma El's and California Baby. The one ingredient you need to watch out for is cod liver oil, which is in Desitin and A&D, I believe.
Kimberly, baby shouldn't have rashes, generally that is some food intolerance either directly or through mama's milk. Dairy is the most common cause, but is usually associated with a red ring around the anus, and/or green mucusy stools.
Giving baby cod liver oil directly, whole food probiotics and bone broth are great for helping to address food intolerances.
We used Flander's Butt Creme with cloth diapers before I realized some of the dietary issues.
Thanks, Pat. She doesn't have anything around the anus. I'm trying to think what else I eat that could be causing this. Is spicy food an issue? Her rash is always on her labia and starts off with little red spots that get worse and sometimes bleed. I can tell it itches. I've changed her cream to Mama Rose's Natural stuff.
I need to get her a new pediatrician but haven't had much time to research holistic doctors here in Augusta.
Damn those yeasties! Llewellyn was born via c-section May of last year and had thrush for the first two months of her life (it went undetected and then the medicine didn't work). I gave her probiotics and they eventually subsided but still rear their ugly little bodies.
Sadly, I know I ingest WAY TOO MUCH sugar. I'm an addict between the ice cream and cinnamon cereal. The funny thing is that I didn't crave ice cream or sugar when I was pregnant with her - only chicken taco salads.
As for her diet, she eats Stonyfield Farms baby yogurt about every other day and has been for the last couple of months. She does eat oatmeal but has been since she was six months. She also gets a tiny bit of cheese when I make her eggs or with her whole wheat pasta. This issue has been present on and off for most of her 10 1/2 months of life on the outside.
I'll reintroduce the probiotics and cut back on my sugar (goddess help me) and see how things go.
Thank you so much, Pat. I wish I was still in Charlotte, I've been needing a MNO like mad.
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"
"Thanks, lots of great ideas we can try. (I am a new member on the yahoo group as of last week.) We also read some information elsewhere about treating with arnica, do you have any experience with that? DH used arnica pellets on Sunday for muscle…"
"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
Are you already a member there?…"
