I know a lot of parents swear by butt paste, but I didn't find it to be better than any of the other, cheaper creams. My kid's doctor recommended the purple Desitin cream. That stuff was amazing. According to the doctor the zinc oxide is the miracle ingredient. I believe him because this worked way better than any of the other creams I used when my kid was in diapers.

  • Ferberizing works - It's really rough at first, but once it kicks in you will be so glad you did it.
  • Get a dishwasher basket if you have a dishwasher. Walmart has them. You can wash binkies in that thing too.
  • Always have desitin and aquaphor on hand. Aquaphor works great on minor rashes, desitin for the more serious. I really recommend having a set for home and a set that stays in the diaper bag.
  • You are going to wake up at 3 AM and have to get out of bed to feed your child. It is frustrating and it is awful, but it is a fact of parenting. I would work out an arrangement with your SO to take turns for maximum sleep time. If you are breast feeding, make him get up and bring the baby to you. Share in the pain and neither of you will feel like they are doing all the work.
  • Whatever your stance on breastfeeding, hear out the lactation consultant that will be offered free to you by your hospital
  • Look in your area for first time parent classes. They give you some AMAZING information and the classes are usually really cheap - and a great boding experience for a couple.
  • If you are not a patient person, you will need to learn patience. Kids test the limitations of our patience, and when you are sleep deprived, it is so easy to get overwhelmed or angry.
  • Talk to your SO and manage their expectations on house chores. They are going to have to step it up. You should be sleeping when the baby is sleeping, instead of up and making sure your place is spotless. It's not a vacation. Taking care of an infant is work.
  • Let your SO have time alone with the baby. They need to bond one on one, and you are going to need to get out of that house once in a while. Also, do not feel bad about leaving your baby with your SO or the grandparents. This separation was very difficult for my ex. The baby will be fine.
  • Don't let pride get in the way of accepting help. If a relative offers to cook or clean, let them. Any little bit of help will make your life that much easier, and you need that in an environment where stress is going to be high and sleep is going to be low.

    EDIT: Thought of one more.

    If you have a Costco or Sams Club, get a membership. Buy your diapers and wipes in bulk. You'll easily pay for your membership in savings.

Your little one sounds a lot like what we are going through with one of our twins. She has very bad gas problems and I was at the breaking point where I would try anything to soothe her. After talking to my pediatrican (who is very old school), this is what we are doing below for her gas and both babies reflux (and projectile vomiting). I won't say it solved her gas completely, but it did help her sleep if you want to try it.

My brother in law grabbed the tube of Desitin instead of toothpaste not too long ago. He had that taste in his mouth for days. I also laughed for about the same period of time.
