Here is a fab-a-lous Mommy Tip from my veddy good friend Lori:
I wanted to let you know of a concoction that Brantley (her husband is a pharmacist) came up with to help Luke’s severe diaper rash. He has double ear infections (again) and is on a strong dose of Augmentin.
His diaper rash was so bad that he couldn’t sit down and it hurt him to walk. So pitiful it made ME cry too.
Brantley did a little research and decided to compound one container of Triple Paste (which contains bees wax, zinc and lanolin) with half a bottle of extra strength cherry Maalox (to neutralize the acid in the poo). He was a little afraid that the mint would burn, but not sure about that. Since he is no longer working in a traditional pharmacy, he came home and mixed it up in the good ol’ Kitchen Aid mixer.
We put it on Luke that night and set the alarm clock for the middle of the night for another application. By morning it was MUCH improved and he is no longer crying in anticipation of a diaper change. It makes a thin enough paste that you can apply it without much rubbing. HUGE difference in a very short time.
