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 =)

Love that mother's instinct! He is growing and so cute. The BOTTOM line is.....glad his butt is better! :} Just to let you know, we live on the Snake River, but it is above a dam so it is like a lake. It is beautiful and I LOVE it. We can back the jet skis and boat into the river from our back yard. Super fun!!!!!
