Vaseline fixed Annabelle's itchiness

I really appreciate all the quick responses to the blog I posted about Annabelle's red, itchy skin. They were all very helpful.

One of our friends, Casey, said that her son had something similar...a type of eczema. They went to several pediatricians and a dermatologist, they bought different lotions and creams, but in the end they decided that Vaseline worked the best. You're supposed to apply it within three minutes of taking baby out of the bath, and then later as needed. That seemed to solve Annabelle's skin irritation. Thanks again for all your suggestions.

Wow that's fantastic. Do you do a really thin layer, or is she slimey and oily?

Yeah, it's just a thin layer. I rub it into my hands first and then lightly rub it into her skin.
