GIVEAWAY - Dr. Smith's and Walgreens :)

For 31 years I led my life pretty selfishly.  Vacations were taken on the spur of the moment, I spent weekends popping in and out of stores as I pleased, spending money as I wished and not really caring much about anything but ME.  (And Chad of course ;)  So if you would've told me five years ago how much my FOCUS would change once we had a baby.. I probably would've just said.."yeah, yeah...whatever" thinking that I wouldn't let a baby change MY life.. I'd adapt their life to fit MINE.  Ummm...yeah.. funny.  

The moment Everleigh came into our lives on that late September day in 2012, it's like a force field of blinders were placed on my eyes that wrapped that little 7lb 1oz body and never let me look away.  From that moment on, EVERY single thing was about her.  Was she cold?  Was she hot?  Did she eat enough?  Did she eat TOO much?  How in the HELL do I help my sweet bear handle that NASTY diaper rash?!

So when I was contacted recently by Dr. Smith's to try their product as they prepared to expand their distribution of diaper rash ointment across the country.. it seemed like perfect timing to try something new (cause heaven knows we had about five DIFFERENT brands going on at once trying to cure her rashy butt!)  ;)

As soon as I received their samples, I was actually really excited to try it.  (How NEW mommy of me to be genuinely EXCITED to try new diaper rash cream right?!) But it's TRUE.. I knew how much my bear was suffering... watching her wince in pain every time we went to change her diaper. By this point I was willing to get old school MEXICAN on her and cover her bottom in Crisco like my mom said they used to do with us!  Lol.. ;)  

As soon as I opened the package the first thing that I noticed was the consistency of it.  (Which actually made me nervous to be honest.)  Being not as thick as some other brands I had tried, I was worried it wouldn't work as well...but again, I was willing to try anything at this point.  Let the experiment begin!  ;)  Happily, a few diaper changes later and what was once painful to even LOOK at.. was a mere memory!  Awesome and SOLD!  Here's to one happy and rash FREE customer ;)  Baby Bear APPROVED!

I was really surprised when I needed to have an emergency c-section with my first child. The thought of a c-section had barely entered my mind prior to that.

I use the dr. smith small to go packets religiously. My nurse actually gave me a whole box and i love this cream for go away fast action for diaper rashes. I feel like the most surprising thing about parenting is that they always learn faster and more than you think they do and when you look around you are amazed at the new things they are doing.......livivua
