Ode to Aquaphor

What's for Dinner: Pasta with Cream Sauce, Green Beans

At the Sewing Machine: Stuff that shouldn't be there

On the Scrapbook Table: Cropping on Saturday!!!

Hunter has been plagued with a nasty case of eczema since about two hours after his baby acne cleared up. Nothing seemed to help. His own loving father said he looked like a burn victim. He rubbed his eyes so much that he looked like he'd gone two rounds with a prize fighter and lost.

We tried herbal salve, two different steroids (which I hated putting on my baby), and plain Cetaphil lotion. I was considering trying my boundless supply of lanolin when I came across some samples of Aquaphor that I'd received in the post-birth hospital goodie bags.

After one bedtime application he looked improved, and now, 48 hours later, the redness is almost all gone. I give him a healthy coat on his spots at every diaper change. He loves having me rub his face and now get excited when he sees the tube. Best of all, he's just a happier guy!
