Today’s “Ask the Doctor and the Dad” question is a real pain in the butt:
My baby’s diaper rash won’t go away! I’ve tried over-the-counter creams like Butt Paste, Desitin and Aquaphor. Our pediatrician prescribed us a couple of different medicines and ointments to use, too. But nothing helps! How can I cure this chronic diaper rash?
We’re constantly teaching our children new things, aren’t we?
We teach them the alphabet, the correct way to pet the cat, how to drive a car (gulp!), which sports teams to love and hate, how to replace the empty toilet paper roll for once in their frickin’ lives, and countless other bits of information that are vital to their – and your – survival.
Every year, countless brave, adventurous souls leap far outside their comfort zones to do something absolutely crazy…
They have kids.
Or maybe they go to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras.
The truth is, we have a hard time telling the difference. Because when you really think about it, there is no difference between parenting children and going totally wild on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras.
