Annabel seems to have very, very dry skin. Annika never had a dry skin issue at all. I would bathe her, put on a thin layer of lotion and she'd be fine. I only bathe Annabel once a week because of her skin. After her bath I put Johnsons & Johnsons Baby Cream on her. Then everyday I put it on her again. Her skin is still peeling and very dry especially her forehead and feet. Any suggestions on a better lotion?
Also my 6 week post partum check up is Friday! Can you believe Annabel will actually be 6 weeks old tomorrow?? Time is flying! I need to go on birth control pills since I did not get my tubes tied (my doctor hesitated to do it since I'm young and since I went in as an emergency I didn't get to sign the release he has for all patients wanting their tubes tied). Any suggestions on those? I took Lo-Loestrin FE last time and had horrible mood swings and bleeding the entire month so I'd rather not do that again. I used to take Yasmin long, long ago so I'm leaning towards that one unless there's something better. I just don't want the mood swings or headaches that I sometimes get with birth control.
And here is a picture of Annika and Annabel. Annika just loves her sister!
