Tuesday's Tip for New Mamas: the Face Rash

So the other week I asked for help with Baby W's face rash.  I know he gets it from drooling (which is most likely from teething!) A couple of y'all suggested that we try Aquaphor, and that's what our pediatrician suggested as well.  So, when I was visiting my parents, they happened to have some Aquaphor, and we tried it.
Hours later, Baby W's rash on his face seemed a lot redder and drier!  I decided we were going to need to try something else.  His skin must just be too sensitive for that!  (I would still recommend trying it because I know that it works for some!)

We decided to try something I read about on babycenter.com.  Neosporin.  I put it on his rash before he went to sleep a few nights ago...the next morning, his rash looked a little better, but it wasn't what I wanted it to be!
So someone on babycenter and a neighbor also suggested using Vaseline.  Two nights ago we tried it out, and the next morning, his face looked great!!  Vaseline was the first thing someone suggested, but I wanted to try the real baby creams first because I thought they would be more reliable.  Thank goodness the Vaseline works!  His rash is much better and I don't have to spend too much money to get the job done!
 Happy Tuesday!
