Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Thank you, everyone!!!!
Thank you, everyone, for all of the advice and support you have given us. So many responses! Little Sebastian certainly is loved...how wonderful is that?? I am headed to Target today, and I am going to take your suggestions re: eczema products. I will buy one of each and experiment until I find something that works. I just hope that they carry the Aquaphor baby wash. This will be Sebastian's first time in the cart because shopping cart handles are one of my two biggest (non child-related) fears; the other is geese (When I was on vacation in June, I went running and came to a roadblock of geese. I had to grit my teeth and run through because I was too tired to turn and run all the way back the way I'd come...and I ran through screaming! I still have nightmares). I will have him wrapped up in the cart cover, and I will be dousing all exposed metal with hand sanitizer. (I seriously do this with the handle/seat when it is even just me, and I look totally OCD to all passersby...and I don't care)

Jodi, first time mom to baby Mason born at 28 weeks 12-10-07. He has GERD, DGE, MSPI, ?food allergies, and hypotonia (starts PT end of July). On Neocate (thickened with Simply Thick) and on prevacid and EES. Home apnea/bradycardia monitor d/c'd finally at 7 months!
LOL! With good reason, you should see what they culture from those shopping cart handles (actually you shouldn't!) I wipe em down and tote my hand sanitizer and use it frequently AND use the cover:-) I know what I probably look like BUT I don't care. With what I know AND a preemie-I'll do anything!! Heehee!!

my favorite shopping cart cover is sold @ target. its the infantino that covers the entire area. he never touches a thing. you should buy some of that anwywhere spray and keep some papertowel with you. when you get there, spray the thing down.. wait a minute then wipe it off. thats what i do. have fun shopping!

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
You gotta go through that geese story slower for me, lol. I do the same thing with carts, but I don't use the cover any more. I will during sick season.

We have so much in common. I too headedo Target this am to look for aquaphor, etc for eczema. Don't worry about looking neurotic, I too don't touch the cart. I push it with my elbows if I can't push it with my hands on the floppy seat!!! I had no luck finding the aquaphor wash. Will have to keep looking.

LMAO, I push with my elbows too if i don't have Elyse with me (unusual). i use the infantino cart cover too, it can be washed and dried. Unfortunately, my little houdini lifts it up and sucks the metal on the sides anyway *sigh*
Check with your
doctor first!
