Sensitive Boys

Isaac has sensitive skin, I’ve never dealt with sensitive skin.  My skin is like leather when it comes to being tough, I’ve never had acne or rashes (one rash) or anything bad.  It’s not oily just a tidbit dry.  I don’t know how to deal with this, I don’t know what to do.  He’s getting hives in sporadic places but his new bum rash is finally healing thankfully.  Are these hives normal?  WHY IS HE GETTING HIVES????  Do I need to change my diet?  He’s kind of got the runs a bit too.  This bothers me because I don’t know how to deal with it.  Because of allergies I’ve had hives so I know how they feel but mine go away once I wash away the disgusting cat dander.  His stay all day long and then pop up in other places.  He’s got zits all over his face now too…poor kiddo.  He didn’t get this from me, that’s for sure.

Silas’ attitude is continuing to be bad.  Is this just early terrible two’s??  Is it going to get worse when he’s two?  He asks for something and waits only one second before freaking out with impatience.  Time outs are happening left and right and it’s not working.  He is better at not hitting me but he sure hits everyone else.  At least he’s not biting, thank GOD he’s not biting.  I feel so sad for him though, I don’t know what made him so quick to be angry.  He seems so gentle and at peace most of the time.  Could he be having inner conflict already?  I really hope this isn’t a sign of things to come.  I’ve never had a 19 month old before, can someone tell me if this is normal or not?  I can’t wait for him to understand what “use your words” means.  I’m starting it with him now.  I go through all the possible things he could be wanting while freaking out and we finally do communicate something.  I wish he’d just tell me what he wants instead of coming up to me in a fit.

Anyway, it’s been a slightly lazy day.  I’m going to go sit on the couch before we have to make out way to the inlaws for some early BBQ supper.


  1. the same thing is going on with cailyn. it’s almost like baby acne. i asked the pedi and he said it’s normal for newborns and it should clear up in a few weeks. as far as treatment, they told me there wasn’t much but to avoid kissing the face, or allowing their skin to rub against your clothing if you are wearing perfume, or if you have lotion on. things like that affect the baby’s skin. i just use a warm soft cloth on her face every few days and it seems to be helping.

  2. I’m in the same boat as you when it comes to a difficult 19 month old. Jacob and Silas are only a few days apart so it’s new to both of us. I’ve tried to be understanding to his needs but his freakouts have gotten worse too. If you find anything works, please let me know.
