my son is a terrible sleeper, mostly due to allergies that we are still identifying.

the last couple of nights, it has been so much worse. his bum is also itching him. he started screaming and crying, and wanting to nurse yesterday, but his bum was (anus) was hurting him. i put him in a bath w/some baking soda and he was fine, i thought nothing of it.

he is wicked itchy again tonight. i'm thinking he could have pinworms.

i'm going to check his anus tonight when he is sleeping w/a flashnight, but is there anything i can do NOW to make him more comfortable until i call the ND tomorrow??

thanks!
amy

p.s. wish me luck, i have a phobia of worms.... :puke i'm so not looking forward to this

I may be mistaken, but wouldn't you see worms in his poopies if he had them?

My bet would be the allergies you mentioned. Lots of foods give my dd red, itchy butt - dairy and citrus are the worst offenders.
