True-Confession Tuesday

I bought disposable diapers today. The Chewy Tot has a nasty rash the Dr. says is virus based - but need to bring on some heavy duty ointments. I have been using gDiaper liners in our hybrid shells since we started using some creams - but between the creams and handwashing the shells, knowing this is going to be for several days and the cost of the liners... well, I caved today. So one large package of Huggies Pure and Natural Diapers came home when I picked up his prescription.

So, we'll spend the next few days medicating (with the Dr.'s suggested mix of 2 parts zinc based diaper cream, 1 part Hydro-cortisone 1% and 1 part of the prescription diaper ointment) 3-4 times a day, having baking soda baths and "free time".

Oddly enough, when we filled the prescription, the pharmacist recommended that in addition to "free time" we should try cloth diapers.

I'm hoping this doesn't last too long. Although, you sure wouldn't know he was "sick" by looking at him!


  1. Aw, poor guy. We've done 'sposies for vacations and I have to admit---it was kind of fun. <=] That zinc will clear him right up, with Free Time it'll be even faster.

  2. I think "free time" is our little one's favorite time of day. :)

  3. I think we all need a little "free time" in our days! Hahaha!!!
