I am having two summer-related baby freak-outs, so I need help, STAT.
Ulcer-inducing issue: My child is allergic to hypoallergenic baby sunscreen.
I shit you not.
Even though she was born looking exactly like my husband, and looks more and more like him every day, deep down in my heart of hearts, I knew that there was a little of my DNA in her, and unfortunately it has to be the bad stuff, like being allergic to things that people aren't supposed to be able to be allergic to, like how I am allergic to all sunscreens to varying degrees and Benadryl. Benadryl, people. The medicine you take to STOP an allergic reaction.
Anyway, I have been putting very tiny amounts on her and then slapping a hat on her and not taking her in direct sunlight because I was afraid of a bad reaction, but the other day I wanted to take a walk during a very sunny time of day, and I put Coppertone Hypoallergenic Baby sunscreen on her face like a good mom (instead of just her nose, like I had been -- the shame) and HER EYES SWELLED SHUT.
So, I need suggestions. What the eff do I use???
Problem that isn't necessarily causing an ulcer, but it still consuming some of my precious looking-at-things-on-the-Internet-I-can't-afford time: What do I do (diaper-wise) for swimming?
I refuse -- STRAIGHT UP refuse -- to buy Little Swimmers swimming diapers. $5 million for 10 diapers? No thank you.
I use BumGenius cloth diapers, and I heard a rumor that those are waterproof from the outside so they can be used as swim diapers. Could this be true? I need this to be verified or debunked, and if it isn't the case, I need to know what people suggest.
Alright people, get on it! Help a sister out!
