6. When stung by a bee according to some moms putting garlic spread on the site makes it feel better.
7. To save from washing your changing pad covers all the time from “accidents” use adult liners and place them over your cover so when “accidents” do occur it goes on the liner that is easily replaced and not dirty your cover. Saving you time and multiple washes.
8. When your child reaches 4 months of age, they begin to know how manipulation works and of course wanting your attention. Some how all or the majority anyways of 4 month old babies have a “cough”. No need to be alarmed if you notice this, unless it is a real cough in which you will be able to distin
guish the two. But all your baby wants is your attention and trying to get it the way they know how. 😉
9. For most babies that have diaper rashes parents try everything in the book to cure it. I found after trial and error on creams and gel pads etc… And please don’t get me wrong all babies are different and mothers find different things that work, but what worked for Eli was Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment (100% Natural). I put the cream on first and then after I put Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment (Petroleum Free) on top of the cream. It not only made it better within 24-48 hours but also did not leave a white residue on his butt because of the multipurpose ointment.
10. When changing a boy and we get “baptized,” what I found that works better than ruining your clothes and his, is if you put a small wash cloth on his “sprayer” while changing him if he does have an “accident” the wash cloth will soak it up and keep both of you clean.
