Happy Friday! ___ The husband doesn't really like to be on social media too much so I don't post a lot about him but TODAY we are working at the same hospital and carpooling together! ___ Did you know when we met he was the chief resident and I was the intern? It was actually NOTHING like Grey's Anatomy (I get asked that all the time 😂) ___ We both come from very different backgrounds and cultures but our core VALUES are the same. I love that our daughters learn about their Indian culture and African American roots. They see how DIFFERENCES can be a UNIFYING force within the home. ___ I also love that we are in the same field and I have a support system both at home and at work! ❤️ ___ How do you teach your children about differences? And are you married to someone who came from a different background? How do you merge two cultures in your home? ___ To see more about our story on the Washington Post, check out the link in bio 👆🏼 ___ Also swipe left to see our engagement picture from 11 years ago! (I feel old 😂😂)
One of the most common things I see in newborns and babies is diaper rashes.
___
In fact the WORST diaper rash I have ever seen has been on my own child. It was then, when she was only two weeks old that I discovered how sensitive her skin really was!
___
Diaper rashes usually occur because of sensitive skin, chafing from the diaper, diarrhea, infrequent diaper changes and other infections.
___
So what can parents do?
___
The first thing is to stay on top of them so they don't get worse. We can do this by:
___
1) Frequent diaper changes- this minimizes contact of the baby's skin with urine and stool. If you can, try changing the diaper every 2-3 hours.
___
2) Use gentle wipes- I love water based wipes that don't have extra chemicals that can be especially harsh on the skin such as @waterwipesusa
___
3) Let the skin air dry-now I know it's not ideal to let your baby sit around with no diaper (trust me, I've seen the lovely effects of that)--but letting the skin air dry can soothe the skin and dry out the rash.
____
4) Use the right diaper cream- you want to use a diaper cream between changes to create a barrier between urine, stool and the skin. For milder rashes zinc oxide cream is great. But for more severe rashes I like to use Triple Paste or @aquaphorus
___
If the rash is worsening or if there is pus/blisters-make sure your baby is seen by a pediatrician.
__
And finally remember that a diaper rash can happen to any baby! It says nothing about your diaper skills or how you are as a parent---as I know the parent guilt is oh so real! ✨✨

Alright let's lay down some PEDIATRIC knowledge today...
___
It's around that time when daycares across America are calling parents to pick up their kids because of hand foot mouth disease!
___
And parents are frantically calling the pediatrician because well...the name sounds kinda scary right?! I can't blame them! 
___
The truth is that hand foot mouth disease is REALLY common-especially in children younger than five years old.
__
It's a viral illness that usually involves a fever, irritability, decreased appetite, drooling and painful sores.
___
The sores sometimes develop a day or two after the fever and can be on the hands, feet and back of the mouth (THUS the name)-but they can also be in the diaper area and the arms and legs. They start off as red spots and then can scab.
___
The WORST part of all of this is that children will often refuse to eat because those mouth sores are painful---so the main treatment is to keep them well hydrated with liquids. Sometimes cold foods such as ice cream and popsicles can help soothe these sores (kids love this treatment 😊)
___
There is no specific treatment for it as it's a virus that resolves on its own. But frequent hand washing can prevent it from spreading to everyone else---and YES adults can get it too 😩
___
If you notice that your child is extremely irritable, has a fever that cannot be controlled or is getting dehydrated and refusing to drink anything--make sure you get them seen by the pediatrician.
___
Picture above of my kids who are the silliest human beings in my world. And I love them for it ❤️❤️

Does your child make *that face* when you offer fruits and veggies? You may be wondering if your child needs a multivitamin.  Check out my blog post, where I go into more detail on how to choose a vitamin for your child - Link in Bio!

Read on for another amazing collaboration with @pajamama512!  For those of you that are grown up kids, these brands have products for adults as well!

Did you know 60% of kids aren’t getting really important vitamins their bodies need, such as vitamin D, A, and B (specifically B12)
Gummy vitamins are so popular but most are so full of sugar. 
So what are some good vitamins for your little ones to take? I asked @healthymamadoc and this is what she recommended:

1. @smartypants Kids Complete Gummy Vitamins (Amazon)
(Non - GMO, free of major allergens - treenuts, shellfish, soy, gluten, wheat, milk, eggs, no artificial sweeteners, no high fructose corn syrup). •
•
2. @rainbowlight Nutristart Multivitamin Powder (Amazon) 
You don't have to worry about sugars from the gummies getting stuck on the back teeth, esp. if your kids aren't good about brushing the back teeth (or letting you do it!) •
•

3. @ollynutrition Kids' Multi + Omega-3 OR Multi + Probiotic (Amazon and Target ) 
A Fruit, vegetable, and herb based Multivitamin. Kids Multi + Probiotic uses pork-free gelatin, good for families with religious restrictions to their diet.

Our pediatrician recommended these flinstones which I grew up with as well but I may have to give these others a try once these are done. 
What vitamins do you give your little ones?
