My baby boy turned 4 months yesterday. He’s now doubling his birth weight and definitely growing too fast and way tooooo heavy. He sleeps lesser in the day and a little longer in the night (long time no see, sleep!). He’s physically stronger and can coordinate little movements. I’m glad that he’s more entertainingly-interactive at this stage. He smiles and laughs a lot, coos and gurgles more. He’s a born sweetheart. Oh, I love him more and more.
But over the weekend, a strange skin rash (which seems like a chickenpox to mi esposo) was seen at some parts of his body. Though I thought otherwise, we still brought him to his Pedia to clear all doubts. We were appeased when the doctor told us it’s an ordinary rash that maybe brought about by either a new soap, bath water or insect bites.
He was given Bactroban Ointment for the rashes (also applicable to open wounds), an antibiotic and an anti-itch drops. Pretty tough for a 4 month old baby so I omitted the oral intakes and just stick with the cream. So far, his rashes are healing. Pretty soon his skin will be soft and smooth and flawless again.Dagdag kaalaman: Did you know that newborns whose mother had chickenpox have a natural protective shield against it at least until 6 months of age. That’s according to his Pedia. Now you know! Lol
I forgot to mention Dos is now a sucker. He’s a sucker for his thumb (and his whole hand at times). Welcome to the club son! J
