thanks to 5 baking soda baths and too many diaper changes to count, harrison's bottom is now looking much better. it's not cured, but progress has been made. the rest of his body is completely rash-free now, so i cancelled his doctor's appointment. why pay $20 to have the doctor tell me to do what i'm already doing? we may need to visit a psychotherapist, however, because harrison is going to grow up having nightmares of his mean mother attempting to hold him down and spread ointment all over his tooshie. the last 48 hours may have scarred him for life.
on a lighter note... i think my child grew three inches overnight. maybe baking soda is a growth stimulant?! : ) he woke up this morning with his toes peeking out through his pajamas!
