ds is 13 months and I've been putting him on a potty since he was 10 months to get him used to it and also help me out with the washing! he's great, doesn't ask to use it but always does a wee on it and can guarentee a poo first thing in the morning. He started with childminder a couple of months ago and she was quite happy to use potty but I don't think she does or if she does she has more 'misses' than me (one pooey nappy a day) which is completely understandably. The problem is if ds goes in nappy he immediately gets a really sore red bum that will bleed when you wipe it - with some sudocream it will be fine by the next morning, but he crys till its changed. Any ideas what it could be that makes his poo so acidic?? He has a wide and varietied diet so no idea where to start!.... roll on potty training!
the powders are very gentle etc some of the discomfort from teething is the acidic tummy and poo issue so I would def try - mine have really suffered with smelly wee and horrific poo when teething and the powders really help.
he's had ashton and parsons powder today and cried his heart out when I put sudo cream on his bum after bath tonight does it take a while to work?? his bum is back to normal by the morning and we're all coating him in sudo it just doesn't seem to be enough of a barrier - will try vasaline next,
youpeskykids - what is metatanium? and where do you get it from?
never had poo like this before whilst he was teething - these are teeth 9 and 10
Metanium, metanium, rah rah raaaah! My DS bleeds almost instantly after a poo when teething. I watch him like a hawk but even I'm not quick enough before the "burn" sets in. I was in utter despair (Sudocrem, Vaseline etc etc). Metanium saved me, and his skin. It's very thick so only need a small bit, but it works immediately.
are those creams ok with reusable nappies? he has flusable liners but the sud gets thro sometimes and needs an extra wash to get rid of it....
was wrong about childminder she does put him on potty - she was well chuffed with self today as she had her first poo on it was lovely to see how pleased she was, his bum was lovely at the end of today as well so guess that really helped, at least it gives his skin a break!
