comment What are some good strategies for preventing Diaper Rash?
The usefulness of this might depend on what type of diaper you use. We noticed that with some disposables our son got rash any time he was in a wet diaper for more than a few minutes, so a layer of ointment (we used Butt Paste) was a necessity if there was a chance that we wouldn't be able to change him immediately when he got wet. Cloth diapers were similar, but not as bad. Other brands of diapers didn't exhibit this same tendency.

comment How do you warm the milk in a-drop in liner style bottle?
@barfieldmv, well technically they still form... you're just giving it a bit of time for thremo-dynamics and convection to kick in and spread it out a bit more uniform. I always preferred nGinius's stir method for that. Or shake.
