Oops soory I actually fall a sleep and sent this before finishing... anyhow I had a lot of drugs after and during csection. While at hospital baby had few random rashes, I was told this was because she is being exposed to random things, thus the reaction. Today we came home, one of the first things I did took her out the carseat took her to be changed at changing table and then placed her in her cot with her blankets, took a picture. Lift her up and she brought up some mucus and started screaming crazily. I placed her on my chest and under her vest I noticed her back is bright red. Called dh he took a look and baby had rash on her entire back and bum. Panic screaming, decided to put mustella cream on her which worked but currently she is still irritated on her back. She is feeding well and otherwise fine, so we decided to wait for mw tomorrow, to mention even if rash is gone by then. Any ideas what this could be? I thought maybe something on the change mat... may be cats slept on the bed but we always keep them out, may be dry wall fell on the bed when I screwed picture frames in before baby came, may be she sweated in the car seat and something was on there... may be all the meds in my system. I do not know. Anyone could may be understand?
It's difficult to make a judgement based on the information you have given. It might be a general skin sensitivity or a reaction to the washing powder used? Or one of umpteen other things. Keep the environment clean and cat-free for now.
Feeding well and being otherwise ok is a good sign though. Try not to worry and wait and see what your MW says.
What sort of rash is it - what does it look like? Is your baby distressed or happy enough and sleeping? It could simply be milk rash or baby acne which are both pretty common- it's very probably nothing to be concerned by.
Baby is feeding sleeping well and otherwise fine. She does not look uncomfortable or itchy. Rash was all red with rased whitish yellowish dots in some places, they go away on pressure. Not dry. Now looks like redness is going away. Thank you for congratulations :-) she is an absolute delight, I love her so much and want her to be well. I am so tired probably my reactions right now to things are over the top. I want to run and rewash everything in nonbio but cant because of pain in csection. Some was done by mil including the blanket on the bed I am a bit nervous it may be was not washed properly.
My first was absolutely covered in those, head to toe. They went away without any issues after a week or two. Not sure if there's a connection but she was also a c sec delivery. We had a maternity nurse with us and she was absolutely unfazed so we didn't call MW
