30 Pictures in 30 Days (5)

No time today Colin had some priority bloodwork :(


Diaper Warning

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has launched an investigation into Pampers diapers with Dry Max after some parents complained that the new diapers appear to be the cause of rashes and chemical burns on their children.
Pampers recently updated its Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers with a thinner, more absorbent technology in what the company has called its biggest diaper innovation in 25 years.
Several parents have said that their children developed diaper rashes and some claim to have seen chemical burns on their children after they started using the products, which Procter & Gamble said went through extensive testing.

Recall Notes

See previous post for updated UPC codes. I received the following from a friends pediatrician.

On April 30, 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in conjunction with McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of the following products:
Tylenol Infants' Drops
Children's Tylenol Suspensions
Children's Tylenol Plus Suspensions
Motrin Infants' Drops
Children's Motrin Suspensions
Children's Motrin Cold Suspensions
Children's Zyrtec Liquid in bottles
Children's Benadryl Allergy liquids in bottles
We want to assure everyone that there have been no serious medical problems reported as a result of using the recalled products. However, DO NOT use any product on the recall list. (Double check the NDC numbers on the above name brand products, and discard any medication if you find it listed.) If you have used any of the recalled product, the potential for serious medical problems is remote.
Generic versions of the above listed medications are not affected by the recall and are FINE to use. Purchase generic products of acetaminophen (otherwise known as Tylenol), ibuprofen (otherwise known as Motrin), or diphenhydramine (otherwise known as Benadryl). If you use Zyrtec, check with our office and we can recommend another over the counter allergy medication. As always, DO NOT use any adult version (generic or as listed above) for your children.
The McNeil company has arranged for coupons to refund your cost of replacing their product.
Again, we want to reassure all families that these recalls have not been issued due to any adverse medical effects. It seems they are due to quality control within the manufacturing process.

30 Pictures in 30 Days (4)

hospital These are some photos from one of Colin’s early hospital stays.  The world is so vast and infinite in it’s wonder but so small and fragile when held in your heart or asleep on his mother’s chest.

I like to look at these photo’s to remind me of what is really important in life. I do understand that everything is “relative”, but the health and well being of the ones’ we cherish provides so much more joy than the “accolades” we all strive for in corporate America.

Here are some pictures from my backyard. Flowers being one of the kindest subjects in nature, inherently full of beauty and bending only to the wind :)
