Parenting Question

Parenting Question

Hello everyone, I have been missing in action for awhile, tending to mommy time. I have a question that I have posed from a conversation that I recently had.

What are two things that no new parent or pregnant women want to hear??

This is by far, one of my favorite products. We still use it and my daughter is almost 8 months old. Of course there are safety regulations that you must follow to avoid incidents. The best part is that it can be used when she’s a toddler, which is great because she loves it!!

Having it all??

Having it all??

You know the terms “superwoman, supermom, stay at mom, and career mom? ” what do those mean to you? Truth is they are all very hard roles because most moms whether at a job or stay at home, are superwoman. Can we really have it all? Being a parent can be overwhelming in the beginning, but it gets better. Let’s consider this, you have a career, husband or mate, a household and now a baby. (This can apply to the guys as well that are stay at home dads). How do you balance it all evenly? Trying to give everything your all can be really taxing on you both mentally and physically. I’m a stay at home mom of a 6 month old, a wife, a student, and starting a company. I tend to forget to eat, drink or even take care of myself some days. I’m doing everything for everyone and then I’m super tired by 10pm. I have a fantastic grasps now. How do you juggle your daily routine??

Infant yeast infection and diaper rash!

Infant yeast infection and diaper rash!

So, people always offer advice about parenting, but why does it seem like they forget significant things like a yeast infection! Now for those of you that do not know, both girls and boys can get yeast infection.
Back story: my daughter was congested and I was told that it would go away within a week since it was just a common cold. She only 3 months old at the time and cold medicine is a no-no. Well the cold lasted 3 weeks and she ended up with an ear infection. She was prescribed antibiotics which led to her yeast infection. Please know that it looked just like a diaper rash, but a few days ago I noticed the discharge (sorry for those that are squeamish)! What was news to me was that a yeast infection can spread and gets under the neck from drooling (keep plenty of bibs around). Are you ready for the remedy??? Lotrimin AF!!!! Yes, the anti fungal foot cream! And a sitz bath (baking soda bath). My, my, my you learn something new everyday!
