Dry skin on a Newborn

My little one is 3 months now. She still has really bed cradle cap and her skin is super dry. She gets cracks by her ears that bleed and all she does is scratch, scratch, scratch! I am at a loss. I have tried many different things. Cetaphil lotion, sensitive skin soap, humidifier, aquaphor, I know this one sounds funny but gerber breast feeding stick, and bag balm. Nothings seems to be helping. Does anyone have some magic things that might help? I am willing to try just about anything. Especially if it will stop the itching! My poor baby doesn't need any more scratches!

Have you seen these cups?

My friend introduced me to these awesome disposable sippy cups. They are cute and affordable. Perfect for birthday parties, playdates, and such. I love them! They are called Hefty Zoo Pals Cups and Lids.

Pooping in the potty

I know that pooping is the harder part of potty training for most kids.  However, not for mine.  She's done great with pooping in her potty up until recently.  

Here's where it gets gross!

Her poop has totally changed consistency!  She has always been a soft pooper but solid enough to make potty training go fine.  But it's turned to absolute mush!  Let me tell you, diarrhea does not help potty training!!!!

Only a few things have changed in her diet but nothing big to make me think it would turn poop to diarrhea every single day!  She's eating a lot more peanut butter honey sandwiches and less milk lately.  She's also been wanting chocolate milk rather than plain milk.  I've eliminated a lot of fruit hoping that will help but it doesn't make sense to me that PBH sandwiches would do this.  

Any suggestions?  sorry for the details!

Gifts for your kids

Last year I got some really great ideas from this blog for gifts for my toddler. One of my favorites was a wallet that I filled with gift cards (with no money on them) and pictures. I think that was Steph's idea, thanks! I actually used several ideas from others last year. I wondered if anyone has any creative ideas they are utilizing for their kids this year. One thing that I'm a bit excited about is a 4x6 photo album for my two year old filled with photos of all the people she loves. I think it will be a nice thing for her to look at in the car or at church. Happy gift giving!
