Lesson #4 - Another person’s choice is nothing more than another alternative for you to consider.
Keep in mind that each baby is different; some parents will find their baby does perfectly fine with disposables while other parents may find their baby has some type of reaction to them.
Cloth Diapers are a great way to save money and environmentally friendly.
It is all a matter of personal preference, and how you feel about other factors such as time, convenience, cost and the environment when deciding between cloth and disposables.
Some parents combine the two, using cloth at home and disposable when they are going to be out all day.
Baby Butz Cream is a barrier cream that adheres to skin in order to protect and heal, so it will also stick to the diaper. When you use Baby Butz Cream with cloth diapers it is recommended to use a liner (either reusable or disposable) I understand there is a natural bio-degradable disposable liner available, I am trying to track it down to be able to offer it through our website for the moms that use cloth diapers and still want to stay all natural.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone was to be able to come up with an inexpensive, natural, bio-degradable disposable diaper?
Lesson #3 – You will eventually forget what people said or did…but you will never forget how they made you feel.
When I first met Demitri’s Pediatrician, I was lying in a hospital bed the day after giving birth to him, I was anxious and nervous because I did not know what was wrong with Demitri, in came this little female Doctor about 8 months pregnant herself…she tried to conceal her pregnancy with her jacket as she entered my room, it was small act of thoughtful consideration I will always remember…. she was soft spoken and her manner was gentle and empathetic, she introduced herself and said she would be taking care of Demitri and she still is to this day. With all the illness and medical related hospital and doctor visits, Dr. Janet Grabowski has always been there for us.
Believe it or not, I have had some Doctors and nurses mention that it may be easier if I gave up and placed Demitri in an institution…but not Dr. Janet Grabowski. She treated Demitri just like any other child, and me, just like every other mom…no pity, no advice unless I asked and always kind and gentle just like on the first day I met her.
Dr. Grabowski has seen firsthand how Baby Butz Cream has healed Demitri’s diapers rashes and also the skin around his G-Tube, she was so impressed that she wrote a testimonial for the product. I am very grateful because she didn’t have to do it. I understand that Doctors have to be very careful in what products they endorse…especially publically, so I will treat that piece of paper like gold.
She has been and continues to be a strong supporter for my diaper rash cream, Baby Butz, Demitri and I.
- Dr. Janet Grabowski- Possibly one of the Best Pediatrician and human beings on the Planet…Thank you and we Love You.
Lesson #2 – When all else fails, read the directions…in this case, ingredients.
While preparing my business plan to market Baby Butz Cream I came across research stats that would scare any parent about products that contain chemicals that we use on our babies and children every day. Did you know…
* Children on average are exposed to 27 chemicals a DAY! — Companies can claim that their products are gentle and natural even when they contain chemical ingredients.
* Baby’s skin is 30% thinner than adults.— The absorption of product through the skin and into the bloodstream is higher so the quality and safety of ingredients used in baby products should be that much more important,”
* The blood-brain barrier that helps block chemicals from penetrating brain tissue is not fully developed until the baby reaches 6 months of age. — You do not want to expose your baby to potentially harmful ingredients when their developing tissues and organs are sensitive to chemical damage.
Parents need to know about the products they are using on their children.
The lesson here is…Read the ingredients, if the product contains alcohol, perfume or chemicals it’s probably not a good idea to use on baby and as far as I know…those ingredients do NOT heal diaper rash.
Lesson #1 - Life is like a poker game – You have 2 options…play the hand you are dealt… or fold. It’s not necessarily the cards you have that will win the game but how you play them out.
I find moms (well, almost all moms) will do anything in their power to protect and provide for their children. I am no different than any other mom.
My son Demitri was born with a rare syndrome that leaves him disabled, he is, and always will be in diapers. He also has a G-Tube and is fed overnight by a machine.
Morning diaper changes were a nightmare, no matter what brand of diaper rash cream I tried, (and I tried them ALL) Demitri always developed severe diaper rashes. I woke up every 2 hours every single night to change his diapers. I was constantly tired and at my wits end, and poor Demitri was suffering.
Diaper rashes are painful and NO parent wants to see their child in pain.
Since I couldn’t find what I needed… I had to make it myself.
With the help of a Research Chemist I developed an All-Natural diaper rash cream that helped my son. I never intended to sell this cream, it was something that Demitri and I desperately needed.
I was convinced by a couple of nurse care workers, to sell my diaper rash cream so that other children could benefit from its amazing healing powers.
So…Baby Butz Cream was born; a safe all-natural diaper rash cream…free from perfume, alcohol, and chemicals that works better than any other diaper rash cream on the market.
I describe myself as a serial entrepreneur/ hairstylist extraordinaire/ mom and depending on the day, not necessarily in that order
For me, being a mom is the most rewarding…since it provides the biggest payback.
I am a mom of three wonderful children 2 boys and a girl
My first born child, Demitri , was born with a rare syndrome called Cornelia de Lange,
it has left him mentally and physically disabled, it is for him that I am here…blogging away…
Demitri has taught me a lot and I am hoping that maybe some
parents will benefit from the lessons I have learned.
