My son used to sleep in until 12 noon but recently he has been going over his grandmothers and now he's up from 6:30 am to like 7:30 pm at night.What do you think I can do to bring him back to his normal schedule.



Also He also came back with awful dipper rash that is so dry and cracked that it bleeds a little. I took him to the doctors but all she said is to keep using dipper rash cream. I use the A&B dipper rash cream and normally it seems to help him with in a day or so but now it's like I'm not even applying it.

I use boudreaux's butt paste- but that sounds a bit more serious like an allergy, or yeast infection (which I believe can occur w/ new foods-- perhaps grandma fed something new/ different????!!??) I would get a second opinion... There are lots of options but u can find out if it's an allergy or not. Talk to grandma bout what she fed him!!! That's no fun when ur baby is miserable w/ a rash..... Hope u figure it out!

Both my kids had such severe diaper rash they would bleed. I tried everything under the sun. Calendula oil and lotrimin work the best. Severe diaper rash is a fungus from being wet so the lotrimin treats that. Calendula oil is natural and has phenomenal healing power. I first put the lotrimin on and make sure to rub it in well. Then i load on the calendula oil. My babies rash would usually be gone by the next diaper change or two. You can find calendula anywhere now and I know there is a calendula-based ointment in the baby aisle at target. Also, use a hypo-allergenic diaper. Target diapers are great and so are Luvs (Very soft). Also, let your baby go bare-bottomed from time to time. I usually do this after bath time and before bed. But the lotrimin and calendula are a no-fail.

I also agree with getting a second opinion. My baby stayed at my mums and came back with a rash, nappy rash we were told. When it happened again we went to a dif doc and it was actually an allergy.

I'd also explain to grandma about his sleep patterns and the how and why they are like that and explain to her that when he stays she needs to support his routine and ask her to be on the same page as you and follow the same routines. Write it down for her if it helps her. Again same problem with my mum and it took me 2 weeks to get bubs back into his routine, so I could work from home during the day when my other 1 is at school. I spoke to my mum and now when bubs stays with her I write out the routine and leave a copy in the nappy bag. I just update it as the sleep patterns change based on age.



Good luck!

Pawpaw ointment works great. I noticed an improvement within the next day and it was all gone by the third day

Hey there the best way to get a baby back to their regime is trying to keep them up for example when he is falling asleep try to get him distracted with a toy or a movie that he likes and just try to talk to him maybe lay down with him and try to keep him awake as much as you can. As you delay his sleep time day by day you can reach the time that you want.





As far as the diaper rash is concerned the best thing to do is as follows:



You need to get him into some pampers sensitive diapers, then you need to wash him with luke warm water at every diaper change, and then use Desitin the one in the purple tube. This should clear that rash up in no time.But when you apply the Desitin really put it on thick and after you put it on try not to tie up the diaper so quick leave time for the cream to dry. And one more thing change his diaper frequently, don't let him stay in his diaper too long.

You should ask another doctor and requezt nystatin, not sure I spelled it right but it works great. Make sure to change very often, even if he just peed once. Also let him have fresh air to his bottom. It wont hury to let him rub around naked for 20 or 30 minutes a few times a day while in the house.

Cant help with the sleep thing, im in a similar position. as far as the diaper rash try coconut oil. that is what i use on my LO. It is very good for their skin. It is moisturizing, antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, antioxidant, and so many other things. "In addition to its potential to treat skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, notes Organic Facts, the antifungal properties of coconut oil can also be used to prevent foot fungus like athletes' foot, and treat ringworm and diaper rash. Coconut oil's anti-inflammatory properties make it a treatment option for the pain and itching of hemorrhoids. Coconut oil generally has no unhealthy side effects, so it can be used as often as needed and for as long as the applicant finds necessary." http://www.ehow.com/list_7241126_externa...
