Glad it worked and he is looking better :shock: at him not weeing!! I have pretty much stopped using fleece liners in Gracies nappies, use minkee instead now and it does help, I have also cut back on the amount of fruit she eats and he bum is much better, she wasn't getting blisters she had like scorching marks and was in pain :( Vasaline works well as a barrier, a GP I saw suggested double creaming ie vasaline then bum cream.
I thought I was being grotty by not wiping when Gracie wee's, glad I am not the only one who does it, when we are at home I give her atleast 10 mins nappy free time at each change. x

we don't wipe Blake between wee's and it has helped prevent nappy rash here too!

Poor little mite ended up with antibiotics :cry: althought the doc said it's not through anything I'm doing so feel a bit less bad now. It looks like some normal nappy rash that has somehow got infected. On them for a week, he's had 2 doses so far and it's already looking better - plus he seems to love the taste of the medicine :shock: !

Was also extremely :shock: thar he hadn't weed all night, but I seem to remember that someonecsaid they don't wee when asleep after a certain age, or am I going mad. Actually come to think of it, the nights he's slept more (not totally through - I wish!!) he's been dryer than when awake all night.

Glad the antibiotics are helping. Hope it clears up soon. I've never heard of babies/children not weeing when they're asleep. Ryan definitely does - his nappies are sopping wet in the morning. I have found that once they are sleeping better and :bf: less at night the night nappies aren't as wet.

It's not the usual antibiotics I recognise from giving to Cameron, it's called Erythmecin or something like that?? It's orange flavour I think.
