Our first week with Will away is nearly over. He should be home tonight (just in time for his birthday tomorrow). But he is leaving at 1am on Sunday morning so its not like we really get to enjoy him being home or anything.
Its going to be a rough time especially since I have no idea when it will be over.
So far this week Rhayn has been really helpful.
Gwennie has been a pill. She can't seem to fall asleep and then pops awake in the morning, usually coming down and looking for daddy and looked dejected for a while. Which equates to her being the grump miester.Natalie has a nasty diaper rash. On Monday we used disposable diapers and it seemed to get worse. I've been on top of it with some Butt Paste and letting her have naked time all week. She has had some seriously nasty green poops this week. Nothing frothy, but its been more green than mustard colored and she would get fussy as soon as she went. So I think they must have been acidic. Today she is fussing as soon as she pees.
This morning her rash looked painful, so decided to super wash her cloth diapers. I will probably have her in the disposables for a few days while we try to clear this all up. However I figured a good way to have her air out and for me to NOT be peed on, was to try using flannel receiving blankets as diapers. You just have to fold them like old school flat diapers and pin or snappi them (see below).I think her rash is a yeast rash. All of my internet research today has led me to look in my cupboard and find some Clotrimazole anti-fungal cream (for Athlete's foot). So we'll attempt to use that to see if that helps. If its not improved by Monday I will take her to the doctor. But I think that allowing her to air out as much as possible and using that cream should greatly improve this.
