In an effort to keep Cooper’s chronic diaper rash under control, we’ve been taking turns checking him at about 10 PM, which is about two hours after he’s gone to sleep. If needed, we’ll change his diaper and apply a fresh coating of cream or gel to his bottom to get him through the night.
What dumbfounds me is that Cooper remains sound asleep through this entire process. Keep in mind that this is a boy that will fight us through an entire diaper change when he’s awake.
I tried to put myself in his place, and I cannot conceive of staying asleep if someone were to put me through the following process:
Remove me from my bed.
Plop me down on a chilly changing table
Remove my diaper
Apply a cold, wet, wipe to my bottom
Suit meback up
Put me back to bed
That’s quite a few steps. Good for you, little guy!
