I went with my gut instinct!!!

So you all know that my new little man Coleson (or Baby as he's called in our house).
Has had a bad diaper rash pretty much since he was born.
I have tried a million things & been to the Dr. twice.
After a lot of tears his & mine over diaper changes I finally went with my gut.

I should have listened to myself sooner & taken action.
I switched babies formula & tried Butt Paste.
Within a day his little bottom was so much better & no more acid poop.
His little bottom is almost completely healed today.

By this point in my life I should listen to my gut & react faster I'm sorry I didn't.
So this is a lesson to me & all of you.
Trust your gut no matter what the Dr's or others might say or tell you.
We usually know what's best for us & our children.

P.S. A note to myself when I took baby into the Dr. last week about his little bottom he weighed in at 11 lbs. 2 oz.
He has gained a pound a week since he was born.
He is a little chunk.
A sweet, cute little chunk =)

Yesterday was a busy tiresome day.

I called the pediatrician to get baby Coleson in to have his little bottom checked.
He's had a sore bottom since we left the hospital.
The Dr's aren't any help they just tell me to use bag balm, which I have & it usually works wonders in like a day.

Not helping baby at all, so they said to stop using wipes.


Already done a long time ago.

So they tell me to try desitin.
Ya not working either.

I'm thinking it's a yeast based rash but I'm not a Dr. so they won't listen to me.
If it is then I can't use cornstarch or it will make it way worse.
So I've tried burnt flour & it didn't work either.
Then yesterday the Dr tells me he see's it a lot with new babies on similac (?) to lazy to get up & check spelling.
It makes them have really acidy poops until they are about a month old & that I just have to wait it out & let his little bumb skin toughen up against it.

WHAT THE !!!!!

He's not the one crying while he has to clean the little bleeding bottom while baby is crying so hard because it's killing him.
There has to be something else I can do but WHAT?

That was the 1st part of my busy day.

The 2nd part?

Big sister Courtnie went with us to the Dr. & hung out with us all day.
The boys were wrestling on the ground with her before bed time and little man Kelton went running away from her squeeling, tripped over a pillow & connected with the corner of the front door.

The door won & we ended up at the ER. at 8:00 last night.

He only cried for a few mins. he was so tough.
He is my little shy guy, but last night he sure wasn't he was chatting it up to everyone in the ER.
He liked the Dr because he was wearing Spiderman scrubs & he was really good with Kelton.
Luckily they were able to glue it instead of stitching it.

He will have a scar but I guess it's ok he's a boy, Just one of the many battle wounds he'll have I'm sure.


When he was done they gave him some chocolate milk & some Lilo & Stitch stickers.

But his favorite thing of all was his ID bracelet that they put on him.

He had to show everyone his bracelet & he wouldn't let me take it off until tonight.
I had to talk him into letting me take it off.
He is so cute & so tough you wouldn't even know he had a big owie if you couldn't see it.

Momma loves you my little man Kelton.
You are my tough little man!

Coleson's 2 week checkup & Random pictures.

I can't believe my baby is already 2 weeks old.
We took him to his 2 week check up today.
He is growing like a weed.

He weighed 8 lbs. 15 oz. when he was born & his length was 20 1/2 inches.
When we left the hospital he weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz.

Today his measurements were:
Weight: 9 lbs. 11 oz. ~ 75%
Length: 21 1/8 inches. ~ 75%
Head circ: 37.2. ~ 50%

He is getting so big.

A kiss from Big sister & Big brother...
Big sister loves him just a little bit!!!
He is so cute & such a good baby.
I think he's a keeper!!!

Fair fun!!!

This last Sat was the last day of our county fair & I really wanted to take the boys so they could see all the animals & get them out of the house for some fun.

So we had Grandma Sue Sue (Susan, my mom) watch baby Coleson for us.
And we headed out for some fair fun!!!

The boys were so excited to go see the animals.
The great big smiles on there faces made it all worth it.
(Mom over did it & was feeling it later that night from having my C-Section).
Here are some fun Pics I took.
I could never get them to look at the camera though they were way to interested in all the animals.

Gage would pretty much run from animal to animal.
But my little Kelton was more interested in watching them than touching them.

However Kelton was interested in trying to feed the animals his little credit card thingy.
He thought that it was the funniest thing ever when the animals would try & eat it.

At least the cow would look at me for this picture!

After awhile Kelton got fussy & just wanted daddy to hold him.

This Rabbit was so strange looking.
It looked like a big huge cotton ball.
Gage liked his little nose.

We had a really good time......

Even if Gage doesn't look like it in this picture.

We did however have one minor (Could have been major) set back.
Gage was standing next to this texas longhorn when he decided to stand up.
I am not kidding when I say I thought my baby was gone.
He stood up & his horn came out of the cage not kidding and inch or less away from the corner of Gage's eye.
He hit the cage & it knocked Gage back a little.
I was there as fast as I could get there & swooping him into my arms.
It took him a full 5 - 10 seconds then he just started to cry it scared him so bad.
It scared mom & dad pretty bad to.
We won't be visiting the longhorns for a long while.
We got some free chocolate milk & some cotton candy & life was good again.
