It has been working so well for us! I slather some on her before she goes to bed, she stays in the same diaper all night usually and her butt looks great in the morning!

Oooh, sorry about your scar, mama. 7 weeks in and mine's still a little sticky in places but seems to be settling down. I kept it super dry with a prefold stuffed against it, which I think helped it stay clean and heal.

I've heard several people recommend using probiotics to clear up nasty rashes on small babies - just open up a capsule and dust the powder on. Haven't tried it yet so can't recommend it, but might be worth a try. I've also got one other suggestion that probably won't be terribly popular: we've had to switch to sposies as it was the only way we could keep DD's diaper rash away. I was having to change her CD every hour and she was still all red and sore. We're planning to experiment with different types of soaker pads when I have time, as I can't bear using sposies long term, but at the moment I seriously don't have the time (I have a huge pile of stuff I just need to sew that I look at longingly every day during feeding marathons) and huggies are keeping her rash-free. Whodathunkit?

Hope you're both feeling better soon.

Check out the diapering area here on mdc. A lot of mamas seem to have had issues with rashes because of the laundry soap they were using so you might want to look into that

We're dealing with a nasty heat rash right now. Poor babe is covered in it and my oldest had a little too. We're not used to weather about 90 degrees here - it's Seattle for crying out loud!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this heat wave ends soon.

What temperature were you washing the dipes in? A friend of mine here had that problem until she switched to a higher temp...at least 60 °C...some I know even "cook" them at 90° C if their babes are super sensitive. Just in case that avenue hasn't been explored.

I'm under the impression they give IV antibiotics right at the time of the c-section as standard procedure. Is it possible that now for this infection, you're on your second course of antibiotics?
