Sick Baby and the Diaper Rash of the Century

Emma is ill. We're not sure if she ate something that didn't agree with her, or if it's just a stomach flue, but it has caused quite violent diarrhea. Luckily, we already had an unopened bottle of Pedialite, and she's stayed quite hydrated. She is currently taking a nap on the floor.

The constant diaper changing caused a cherry-red diaper rash. It happens, I guess, due to all the moisture. So we're putting A+D on it. For my college friend readers, A+D is the same stuff you put on a new tattoo to keep it from drying out. It's helping a lot. The cherry-red has died down to a lovely rock-star pink. Also she no longer wails inconsolably for 10 minutes after each diaper change.

That interfered of course with all sorts of life-necessities, such as laundry, homework and cleaning.

To labor!
