Teething and Monkey Butt
Lucy has been suffering these past few days with a bad acid poo rash, easily healed with a little air and powder, until the next poop that is. TMI, I know, but this is for you Moms out there that might be experiencing this now or in the future. I have searched far and wide on the WWW for an answer to the tiny buttox that has been red and sweating blood at our house (Yes, I said sweating blood, that's acid). What I have learned is this: babies who are teething produce and swallow more saliva, making their poop very acid...like the Joker acid-vat acid. Lucy is teething for sure, just got her 3rd tooth today after naptime. But she is not drooling a ton. Which means, she is probably swallowing all that drool. Poor babe. Moxie is a cool lady who coined the phrase, "monkey butt"...a sure sign to me that this is what we are dealing with.
