barley water!

Postby littlesez » Sun Feb 07, 2010 9:23 am

well girls izzy has a generally a clear bum but sometimes get awful burn like rash :( I have found something which is making a big difference barley water (boiled barley then strained off water) MIL suggested it and aside from her other ignored suggestions like rusk and top up formula :roll: :roll: :roll: this one i am actually with her so thanks MIL!

It does soemthing to dilute urine i think and so noticed the manky smell is gone in the morning from the night nappy too :shock: pass it on! :giggle:
