A Sweet Moment With My Boy



My poor little Carter has a terrible diaper rash, he gets them often and never complains about them seeing that he has such a high pain tolerance. Tonight he screamed and cried through his diaper change and it completely broke my heart. I hate seeing my sweet boy in so much pain especially when what you’re doing is causing him pain but it’s the best thing you can be doing for him. I scooped him up as soon as it was done and we cuddled up on my bed, he was holding one of his favorite stuffed animals. He was having a hard time calming down and was so upset that he just kept squirming and crying. I started singing “Jesus Loves Me” in hopes that it would calm him down and that it did. The look on his sweet face as he lay in my arms ,staring up straight into my eyes, listening so very intently to every word of the song. He surprised us earlier in the evening by pointing to several different books and saying “Bible”, we didn’t know that he was aware of what a Bible was, we’ve never pointed it out to him. As soon as I got to the last line of the song “…the Bible tells me so.” he would say “Bible” with a smile on his face and then say “again”. I sang the song to him about ten times and during the last few times he started to doze but woke immediately when the song started to wind down so that he could request another sing through. I would have sat with him in my arms all night if I could, singing to him. I will never forget those precious moments with my sweet boy. I have a really great bond with him, he’s my “mama’s boy” but I honestly have never felt more connected to him than I did tonight. I hope I never forget the sweet look on his face. Thank you Jesus for blessing me with my boys, I am completely blown away at the privilege of getting to enjoy them each day.

Mama's soak up these sweet moments with your babies, they grow so quickly!

  1. That is too sweet! I always try to snap a photo of moments like this, whether it's on my phone or iPod, just so I can look back and remember a little bit crisper :)

  2. The Momma in me is wanting you to find a cure for him :) Here is some I found on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/search/?q=diaper+rash+natural

    Also, check into what he's eating...that may be what is causing it. Some babies are more "yeasty" than others and if you look into their diet it may have answers. I'm sorry he's so uncomfortable. Poor little thing :(

  3. ohhhh poor baby. but isn't it such a great privilege to be the one person in the world who can ease their pain and comfort them? Someday a kiss and song won't be able to take away all their boo-boo's... Thanks for the reminder to cherish these moments!

  4. Aw poor little sweetie. I recommend you sit his tush in some water for a little while after he poops for the next few days. Also when Layla had her diaper rash I let that area breathe by keeping her diaper off and lining her playpen with towels. She'd play for a little while and then I tried a cloth diaper till she would soil it. Switching to organic wipes during rash time also helps.
