    @bbhope DD and I are both good now after the antibiotic. I just finished mine after 10 days. At least DD only needed it for a week. She hated antibiotic. She would scream and cried when she saw the bottle.

    Oh I heard change f season could cause eczema too. Have you found a good combo or product to manage eczema? DD doesn't have eczema but her cheeks are not very soft. A bit pimply. We were using QV but changing to cetaphil baby and will see how we go. Any recommendation?

    She doesn't rub her face unless she's about to have enough or tired. Then she would rub her eyes. She would however using a drumstick and rub it on her head lol. Don't know why.

    This week I am not working on my day off. I love it! Work can wait lol.

    Your colleagues know you work part time right? So they should help and do their part. Just be clearer about it if it bothers you. I read email today but decided not to reply so people know not to expect stuff on my day off.

    Oh yay re cleaner. How did they go?? Good job?

    @Minib: didn't they make favoured antibiotic? DS loves them. Sigh....he is coughing a lot and nose is running like crazy today. His wheeze never seems to go away. The info sheet says baby normally only gets broncholiatis once. DS has it twice now. I feel like i should bring him to the good GP again because no other GP seems to do more than just prescribing random medications! The other new GP who has experience in paed wanted to do chest x-ray. Ahem...i am not sure i want that! I didn't give him steroid, though. He has had enough of these random trial and error medications from my point of view.

    DS rubs his face a lot so his face is really dry and red. Putting lotion doesn't seem to help much. We tried a few. Sudocream is only good for nappy rash. It is eczema strictly speaking. Maybe it itches? My dad bought him a steroid cream (non prescription back home). We only use it on other body area and not on the face. It certainly helps those on the legs. We don't use it often unless it is real bad.

    Yes, my colleague knows i work part time. We are on a deadline so working day and night and weekend is expected. Sigh....i feel like he thinks i am not doing a good job and isn't dedicated enough. I keep stressing that i have limited time and I will try my best. It is impossible to do anything when DS is awake! After this, i doubt that we will work on a project together again. I feel like it is so discriminated when you have a family and want some weekend time.

    I dont' know what to expect of a cleaner. I guess i can't expect it to be squeeky clean? Overall, it is good. Only in close examination that she missed couple of spots in the shower area. I won't be able to do a perfect job anyway so that's OK. I think she just gave 2 hrs to finish cleaning shower, vacuuming and mopping. It actually took her 2.5 hrs but she charged me 2 hrs. She didn't get to do some light dusting but that's not important. She is quite booked so i assume others are happy as well. I'll ask for a schedule and see if she can come biweekly. I feel much better having DS to crawl on a clean floor.

    OK, i better keep working. I am darn tired, though!!!

    It's flavoured @bbhope but she still hated it. And I think after we forced it a couple times she quickly learned antibiotics means no good. We tried spoon and syringe. How did you give it to DS? I hope I don't have to give her antibiotic again anytime soon. She carried on like I tortured her.

    I think it's a good idea taking DS back to the good GP. Hang on to the good GP.

    Have you tried dermaid? When DD had rashes on her neck creases, our paed said to use dermaid lightly. It worked a treat. We used t for a few weeks.

    Which lotion do you use? Have you tried mustela? I heard that's good. I'm trying Gaia now and if DD still have pimples I might switch to mustela.

    That sounds annoying. Is your job not designed to accommodate part time well? Doesn't sound like it.

    That sounds pretty good to me. I mean when I clean myself I'm sure I will miss certain things too. Although my DH seems to miss more spots lol. How much do you pay the cleaner? Did you leave he house or stay when she cleans?

    Hope you didn't stay up too late working last night!

    Except the good GP costs $ and the he even charged me when I went back to pick up a script from the reception. I think it is the practice not the dr. It is near the city so we have to take another round of public transport to there only on DS childcare day. I have been trying to get DS to see a GP everyone is raving about near home but so hard to get appt! First time, I cancelled the appt because she was a week wait. Second time, she cancelled on us due to out sick. Third time, (just last week), DS seemed doing fine so we cancelled. Only after 3 days Childcare and he is sick again! As I mentioned, I tried a paed GP who isn't over booked. I didn't get a warm feeling about the clinic as a whole. It seems like mainly dealing with adults. he again just prescribed medications first instead of looking into the problem. Well he said that he would like to do chest X Ray next. That's why medications first. I only gave DS antibiotic and refused to give him steroid. honestly, I don't know if it is standard. I have never had any specialist charges us anything for a pick up script. So that good GP is good to keep but can't go there everytime.

    I am using all sort of lotions for him. I use Gaia, two from Europe (MIL bought us), Sudocream and steroid cream. I use any of them depends how bad his eczema or dry skin. I have skin problem myself so suspect DS might get that from me. I might look up the one u mentioned.

    I use syringe. DS hates Panadol favour but loves antibiotic. Lol.

    Well it is fine to work part time but they sort of expect u to produce full time work! My colleague is workaholic. he just thinks I am slow.....I told him that I can't just work when I have a child who needs supervision. Obviously, he hasn't been a stay at home dad. I am taking a break on a project with him after this. Too much stress. Boss is patiently waiting on me working on his project. I left my work computer in the office today after sending him all the documents for the report. I told him that I will send them off tomorrow. I worked non stop when I got back to the office today and nearly forgot my lunch.

    Oh..the cleaner. $30 an hr. I think I will get her to come per fortnight until my job contract end. Childcare just offers us 4 days a week. I am taking it . Kinda pointless and stress working on my off days.

    DS is very playful now. I can't believe that he has grown up so much in the last 3 months.

    Ps: I left the house with DS. Impossible to clean with DS who likes to cling onto me. Eg: He wants to see what I am cooking these days. He wants me to hold him rather than seeing in the high chair and watching. The reason why I need a cleaner. I am still not comfortable about leaving a spare to her permanently. I
    What would u do?

    I think I would leave the house too if we have a cleaner. It feels so awkward to just sit there while they are cleaning.

    Charging for picking up prescription? That's steep. Who does that? Even my OB doesn't do that.

    Is it not good to get x Ray for baby?

    Don't work so much that you don't look after yourself. Remember you need to be healthy to look after others.

    Well, the GP reviewed his test result and then decided to prescribe him medication. I guess he was charging for his time reviewing it. But still, it certainly doesn't take more than 5 mins? Most OOP GP clinics don't charge children under certain age to begin with, though. The paed and the gastroenterologist didn't even charge us anything when i phoned them to request a script. They had to spend their time calling medicare for approval! Anyway, i am out of choice at the moment. I'll bring DS back to that expensive but good GP today. It is out of the way.....I really don't mind paying OOP for a good GP but it certainly can't be a regular thing given that DS is sick so often.

    x-ray is large dose of radiation at once. You won't want to do it so often either. Radiation has more effect on younger kids. DS had done that once now......... Surely, he was exposed some while flying to europe with us. If it needs to be done,then no choice but not random use for diagnosis!

    Yes, i am pumping up vit C again. Grr...can't wait to have my life back after today. Geez...my colleague is already asking me to do the next round of stuff.

    @Minib: money well spent. The costly GP really examined DS. We had a discussion about bronchiolitis. Yes it isn't normal for DS to get it all the time and the wheezing that didn't go away for months. I didn't like other GPs because all they do is trial DS On all sort of unnecessary medications. None of them has helped so far. He also doesn't think steroid would help and not a good med for such a young baby. That confirm our instinct that steroid is just yet another random prescribed medication. In short, we r now referred to a new paed who specialised in respiratory problem.

    Wow so many posts since I was last on!

    @Minib - good to hear you and dd are back to good health! Cc just kills us too with colds. The last one was bad - ds got high temp and mild gastro but it hit dh worse! He was knocked out with gastro. Luckily I didn't catch it. Ended up taking ds to the gp just to rule out ear infection. Luckily I went to the bulk billing one as he ended up being fine and he was back to his normal self the next day. Those private GP bills sure add up and I have gone so many times and they have said he's fine (and he was) that I thot, surely they can pick up an ear infection at the bulk bill place.
    That's great you didn't have to work on your day off. How is full time going? After chatting to you guys I ended up having to do some work one night. Hated it! I'm def going back 4 days so I can get paid for all the extra work i do. I work 8:30-6 everyday as well so it's just not worth it.

    @bbhope you will know best. I know decide based on my judgement if I need to go paid Gp or bulk billed. But I know we are different as ds hasn't had bronchitis or any sort of infection that wasn't picked up. If we had been stung before like you in sure is be more vigilant too. And yes those GP costs do add up! And our private GP charges for scripts too. As in if its a repeat and we don't need to see the GP. It's cheaper than a visit, think it's $20. I really hope the cold and flu season is coming to an end soon. Held ds back from cc the week he had a bad cold and went back last week and he's got a cough and cold again! Not a bad one, no fever but the runny nose and cough has started again. Urgh!!
    Sorry can't help with the skin issues we just use cetaphil after bath or a face wipe and haven't had any issues with his skin. I have heard that the only thing that helps baby with eczema is steroid cream. That's what my friends use when they have eczema. And soap free bath gel. Also make sure water isn't too hot for baths.

    Our cleaner ended up having a full diary. Back to the search for a cleaner. So had to find. I really want one that is recommended. I tried one from air Tasker and she wasn't great. Sigh.

    @Gelati: first weekend without having to work after 2 working weekends in a roll feel much more relax! Oh...i stopped going to the bulk billed GP unless just needing a script or referral. The priv GPs in my area do bulk billed for children only. I thought it would have been better quality. Sigh. No. We haven't found a good one. Certainly keeping the one near the city.

    I put steroid cream on DS severe eczema spots. That's from back home. No prescription. It helps. But I am avoiding it for the whole body.

    Totally got the cc problem! DS is the same. Just when he seemed to recover, he was coughing and runny nose again. He hates us wiping his nose. Today, I kinda forced to suck his snot out and he got so upset with me. Only daddy could calm him down. Bad mom.
