There's a fungus among us!

Once again, the picture has nothing to do with the post, it just captures some Daddy and Matty fun.
Today we went back to see the lactation consultant and the timing couldn't have been better. Matthew has a yeast infection, which I would have mistaken for a plain old diaper rash. He has not been himself today. He cried three times! Normally, he is very content and only cries when it's really necessary. Today he screamed at every diaper change and was not happy to sit in his seat. I held him and he calmed himself and fell to sleep. I want Joshua to get home so he can take over diaper changes. It's too hard for me knowing that it hurts my little guy! Our nurse told us which cream to use and even recommended probiotics for me. I am praying that it will clear up quickly and not need to be treated any further. How did he get this you ask? Apparently having antibiotics during delivery as well as having diabetes put us at a high risk. Will the fun never end??
