Well, my poor son continues to suffer from whatever has been going wrong within his little body. Now it is the diaper rash of the century. It started a little bit on Saturday and has been progressively getting worse. He has the reddest little bottom, and we went out shopping today for his Boudreaux's Butt Paste. Yes, some person out there invented this fabulous brown cream to apply when suffering down there, and named it Boudreaux's Butt Paste. On the baby butt market there are all kinds of products: Johnson's baby powder, Desitin, Balmex, Aveeno, A & D ointment, but the one that works better than the rest - Boudreaux's Butt Paste. How many times can YOU say Boudreaux's Butt Paste in a row? I just like the ring it has to it.
So now at the frequent diaper changes that are needed to keep him clean and dry, we apply Boudreaux's, while our poor little guy yells NOOOOOO! Yes, the whole affair of diaper changing now has him traumatized. He doesn't even like the mention of it. Tonight he got to soak in a nice Aveeno oatmeal bath though, and hopefully it will help the rash to go away soon.
He also has a lovely rash going down his legs, on his tummy, on his arms and on his face, which makes us think that it is very likely that the fever was caused more by Roseola than the ear infection. For now, we will finish off the antibiotic, and hope everything is better in a few days.
In the meantime, you can see he isn't the happiest of campers. Much whining, crying and general tantruming can be witnessed here. Although he was highly amused by the dog's high styling fashion today.
