Hi there, My name is Brian. And i just want to say thank you for this amazing system! I find it kind a difficult to talk about it, but. I had tried various methods to get rid of this problem, and they didn’t really seemed to worked that well, they just added more problems. Fortunately, I found your website. While being very skeptical I read your story and was convinced to try it. I had nothing to lose after all because of the money back guarantee. Now I’m proud to say that I’m officially free from this problem! I am very impressed.

It mostly occurs on areas covered by the diaper like the genital area buttocks lower abdomen and the upper part of the thighs It starts as red spots and develops into patches of small and raised reddish rash The redness can sometimes spread over the whole bottom I see So what should I do Most important is to keep her buttocks clean and dry. You can change the diaper frequently and use lukewarm water and cotton wool to clean her buttocks each time Then allow her skin to air dry fully before putting on.
A new diaper A thin layer of moiturizing cream can be applied to keep the urine and faeces from direct contact with the skin Or you can apply some barrier cream like zinc oxide cream to for a protective coating on the red and raw skin Remember not to use baby powder as it will clog the sweat pores when mixed with urine or sweat and it may worsen the condition Consult your doctor if there is no improvement or if the condition is severe Heat rash Mary there are lots of red spots at the back of Kelly’s neck.
What are they That’s heat rash Well when the baby is too hot they will sweat The sweat then causes irritation to the skin and forms these small raised red spots Heat rash usually occurs on the baby’s neck back and chest espcially in hot weather However it may appear even in cool weather if Kelly is wrapped in excessive clothing Then what should I do Don’t worry Simply clean the sweaty skin with water dress her in appropriate clothing to keep her skin cool to reduce sweating The heat rash will then disappear quickly.
But if there is no improvement or if it gets worse bring her to your doctor Seborroeic Dermatitis Mary I wash my baby’s hair everyday but there are still lots of yellow patches sticking to her hair is that a problem That’s called Seborroeic Dermatitis or better known as cradle cap The exact cause is still not clear but it usually appears when the baby is around 3 weeks to 3 months old In most cases it will fade gradually at around 6 months of age The baby’s skin appears slightly red with lumps of.
Small oily flakes or yellowish thick scales adhering to her scalp and eyebrows forming a layer of scab Can it occur in other parts of the body Yes it can But it usually occurs in areas rich in skin glands like the scalp forehead cheeks eyebrows ears armpits abdomen and folds between the thighs The scales are quite thick and Kelly doesn’t look very comfortable what can I do Well, first of all you can clean her skin with water There is no need to use soap Then apply moisturizing cream everytime after cleaning to keep the skin moist.
For thick scale on her scalp you can apply olive oil on to the scalp and then leave it on for about 20 minutes to soften the scales Then wipe them off gently with cotton swabs After that shampoo her hair and use a comb to clear away the patches adhere to the hair Repeat these steps if necessary Again if the condition is getting worse or if the scalp appears red and inflamed consult your doctor Infantile Eczema Mary Kelly’s skin was fine during the first two months but recently her face appears quite red and rough.
What’s happened Let’s have a look Oh, it is eczema what we call infantile eczema Infantile Eczema usually occurs when the baby is around 2 to 3 months old It usually appears on the cheeks elbows knees body and folds between the thighs But the affect areas may vary if your child is older At around 2 years old the neck and the back of the knees and elbows are more likely to be affected The skin appears red and dry small blisters may appear sometimes And scabs are formed when the blisters break.
The affected areas are extremely itchy and the skin becomes thick and hard after scratching Why does Kelly get this Did I eat something wrong during pregnancy to trigger her skin problems Anna the exact cause of infantile eczema is not known It is believed, however to be related to some genetic factors But it is not infectious It’s common that other family members may have allergies to certain substances such as detergents pollen dust or food or they may have atopic diseases like asthma or rhinitis Is there an ointment that I can use.
And how can I prevent Kelly from getting eczema Well, it is important to keep her skin clean and moist Bathe her with lukewarm water and soapfree bathing gel Remember to clean the folded parts of the skin Put on fragrancefree moisturiser after bathing Keep her nails short to reduce the chance of skin injury by scratching Put gloves on Kelly when neccessary When will she recover Every baby is different But the condition does seem to come and go Most skin changes appear before the age of 5 and fade away after 15.
For some children it may persist into adulthood Good skin care is important and your doctor will give you medication when neccessary Apart from that what else can I do Wipe her sweat off in hot weather to avoid irritation Apply fragrancefree moisturiser in dry weather Choose cotton clothing especially when it’s in direct contact with her skin For clothing made from wool silk or nylon make sure it is worn on top of the cotton ones A care giver should pay attention to the clothing material that is in direct contact with her skin.
To avoid irritation The temperature and humidity of the environment is also important Avoid exposing Kelly to cold wind and strong sunlight Use a damp cloth or a vacuum cleaner to remove dust at home instead of sweeping It is best not to keep furry pets such as cats dogs or birds What about washing her clothes You can use gentle laundry detergents to wash her clothes but remember to rinse them thoroughly afterwards Is it food related Do I need to change her formula The relation between infantile eczema and food.

Healthy Eating Tips Eating Healthy Snacks
Alright, let’s talk a little bit about snacks. I subscribe to the dietary plan of three meals and two snacks per day. I think that’s important to maintain the blood sugar. You don’t want to go more than about four or five hours tops without eating otherwise your blood sugar is going to go down. So be very aware of that and if you’re not going to be eating for awhile it’s important to have a healthy snack. What is a snack Well a snack is anything healthy between one hundred and two hundred calories. People of course like convenience. So for.
Convenience, I would say fruit of course makes a good snack and puts us in that calorie range for about a hundred calories. Nuts make a great snack. Even provide protein, too, which is going to carry you a little bit further. Trail mix of course. Trail mix is a combination of nuts and seeds and dried fruit. A very good choice. Have you ever tried turkey jerky This is another convenient healthy snack. You could even keep some of these snacks in your car if you’re driving. There’s also a fish jerky that’s actually pretty good. It’s.
Made from salmon. Salmon jerky. So I suggest you try that one. And how about edamame Are you familiar with edamame These are soy beans in the shells and we just heat these or eat them cold. A little bit of healthy unrefined salt makes a great snack. Vegetable sticks and pieces in little ziploc bags. You can make those ahead of time. That makes for a good snack. You can use, this is a eight ounce serving of soy milk. This makes a good snack, too. Going to provide some protein as well. Here is one of the meal bars. These make good snacks. I would suggest.
Not the breakfast bars but the meal bars that provide more protein and less sugar. And if you like a number I would look for something that is around 15 grams of sugar or less. That would be low sugar. Yogurt makes a good snack, too. Very convenient. Sometimes it helps to have a snack at bedtime. If you find that you’re waking up during the night it’s possible that your blood sugar could be going down. You might try having a healthy snack before bedtime. So that’s the deal on snacks.
What are the common problems for a relationship with a new baby
One of the things that we find really helpful on the Couple Connection, we’ve got a little insight, kind of cartoon thing, called the Vicious and Virtuous Cycle. We know from research done on 100’s of couples that a very typical response in new parents is that mum starts to feel unsupported, partly because she has got an awful lot to do. She may be feels a bit uncertain about whether she is doing things right or doing them wrong. Once she feels unsupported, she is likely to be quite critical of her partner, it might be things like, oh I haven’t got the washing.
Done but then you didn’t do this and you haven’t done that. And then of course, what do you do if someone says to you well the trouble with you is, and you haven’t done that. You defend yourself and you come back and say, well hang on a minute, I have done. I don’t have to say much more, you can see the cycle. Now once a father starts to feel got at, he is very likely to come back in a negative way. We know that very often he tends to do,.
He feel much less satisfied with his relationship with his partner. Once he begins to feel that, he disengages more from his involvement with the baby or with other children. And you get this vicious cycle because once he disengages, what does she think She thinks I don’t feel supported. And that can just get worse and worse. Now you can break that cycle in so many ways. First of all, if you don’t feel you’re being supported, give him an idea about what would be better. I mean, he might be trying quite hard to help you, but give him a clue about.
What it is you’re looking for. And if at the heart of it is, you are feeling overwhelmed because you are not sure what to do, why don’t you say that Why don’t you actually say, look I’m sorry I had a go at you because really, I just feel sometimes I don’t know whether I am doing the right thing. The health visitor comes and then she says something, and I feel the only thing is I am getting everything wrong. It’s very easy as a new mother, or father, but as a new mother to feel that you have.
Signs My Infant is Lactose Intolerant
What are the signs my infant is lactose intolerant Unless you are one of the European mutants with the lactose production gene turned on to adulthood, the ability to produce lactose starts to fade around age two. Evolution assumes by then you’re eating solid food. My baby is not two yet. The signs of lactose intolerance in an infant are similar to those in an adult. Major problems with bloating and gas and even diarrhea after consuming milk. How can I diagnose that in my child Switch the baby to soy based formula and see if the digestive problems persist. If so,.
Then the baby has a stomach bug or other problem. Soy formula causes horrible smelling poops. Lactose intolerance in an infant causes him or her horrible stomach pain and even malnutrition. Then I’ll try the soy. You could also try switching to goat’s milk. Some children who are lactose intolerant only have issues with cow’s milk. I’m giving the baby formula, not cow’s milk. Most formula is derived from cow’s milk, unless it says it is derived from goat’s milk. You could try giving the baby canned goat’s milk from the store.
So if goat’s milk doesn’t cause the same upset stomach, I know that’s acceptable for the baby. And if the baby has the same problems on goat’s milk as cow’s milk, you know it is the lactose. What if it is the formula itself You could try low iron formula. Some babies have digestive problems due to the added iron, though that’s rare. I’ve heard some babies are allergic to milk. That does happen, but it is rare before someone outgrows the age where they live off milk. Unfortunately, the solution for that is nasty tasting protein based formula.
