It doesn't work! I created it, but I try to go to it, it shows me a blank page (more or less) with "Baby" and "Baby's First Year Calendar" options at the top (nothing really happens when you click on them, you go to a page about articles). And at the bottom is a cheerios ad! what's up with that? Is this just me that is getting this? I changed my rendering engine (firefox or internet explorer) and it makes no difference.

I can ask the tech support people for you.

Thanks. He's doing really well. He has been sleeping anywhere from 2-4 hours at a stretch at night (most nights, not all, some nights he is still up all night). He does still cluster feed in the evenings and early morning, but that's okay. I actually had to wake him to feed him last night at the four hour mark. My friends tell me just let him sleep, are you nuts, but I don't feel comfortable with that yet, he's only five weeks and he needs to nurse a lot, he doesn't always nurse much at each feeding. We are still dealing with his horrible diaper rash and his thighs that were rubbed raw from the stupid disposable diapers. I've been using every cream under the sun and it is getting better, but it takes so long. He pees a lot so he always has pee against his skin. Zinc oxide only irritates him and doesn't let the skin grow back. I'm now trying shea butter, which is the only thing htat worked for me when I had a horrible rash during pregnancy (due to antibiotics for my kidney infection). He seems to be smiling more though and has more alert times during the day. Which is a good thing but also a bad thing in that I don't get much done around the house, lol! Oh well, he will only be a newborn once!

How are things going for you?

thanks. its not a yeast infection, the midwife has already looked at it. we stopped using disposables and switched to cloth. which we were going to do anyway but they were still toobig for him. it is getting better but it's like three steps forward and two steps back. He hates it when I try leaving his diaper off or open to help it heal, so it's taking a long time.

I had problems with generic diapers with my girls.
