Hannah's poopy situation

 We have been battling some major diaper rash with Hannah lately. I took her to the pediatrician because she had a diaper rash for more than two weeks that was NOT getting better. Part of the reason it wasn't getting better is she poops 6 or more times a day. She also doesn't digest her food completely so her poop is very acidic. All that equals one major blistery, sore, bright red rash.

The pediatrician said she probably has chronic non-specific diarrhea. (Wahoo.) When I read about chronic diarrhea at home it described her symptoms exactly. When I read about a food or milk allergy it only fit about half of her symptoms. So I'm hoping that's what it is.

Well, one night we ran out of diaper cream, and I had to send Benji to the store. Hannah cuddled her babies in our bed while she waited. She was so sore she couldn't walk around. She looked so sad and cute all snuggled up in bed.

We're hoping that her she'll clear up soon and will stop pooping every few hours.

Thism ay sound crazy, but we have friendsout here that swear by it. Instead of diaper rash cream try using breastmilk and letting it air dry for a while. My friend said it cleared her baby up in 4 hours!
