Wrong Tube!

If Judah had the opportunity to return the parents he was given I am quite certain that last evening he would have done so in the blink of an eye.

Last night I went to put diaper rash cream on him and I accidentally grabbed the tube of Icy Hot.

Somehow the Icy Hot had ended up in Judah's diaper supply basket, and as you can see in the picture the tubes look identical if I were to just feel them.

For whatever reason last night I squeezed (what I thought was diaper rash cream) straight onto him, as opposed to onto my hand and then rubbing it in. Not only did I do that, but I accidentally squeezed too much onto him. It was everywhere.

I quickly realized my mistake and Paul and I frantically tried to wipe it all off of him as quickly as possible! He cried a little bit, but I think it was because I called quite loudly for Paul to grab a cloth and come help me.

I felt so very awful, and had Judah traded me in last night I would have understood!

Oh no! That was so funny-- I had to read it out loud to my little sister.

(I found your blog thru Mel- btw, hope you don't mind me stopping by!)

When our baby Owen was just weeks old I had diaper ointment laying on our bathroom counter and my hubby grabbed it thinking it was toothpaste and well yeah you guessed it actually used it. Took him quite awhile to get that pasty yucky taste/feel out of his mouth. They need to seriously think about packaging stuff in tubes that don't look/feel so much alike.

Glad Judah is ok. This would definately be one for the baby book...lol :)

So not funny, but sorry I did chuckle a little when reading this. I did something somewhat similar when my oldest was an infant. Glad you noticed before your lil guy got to unhappy.

Awww...don't worry, all parents do these kinds of things! It's what makes them strong enough to finally move out of the house!!

Not nearly as bad as when my SIL called me crying at 2 am. She had put alcohol on her new baby's circumcision, thinking she was supposed to do the same as for the umbilical cord.

YOWZA! I think that poor kid is still traumatized!
