Back story: We bought a yummy fresh pineapple and gave C a little bowl of baby sized chunks with lunch every day last week. We were being good, responsible parents and including a healthy, fresh fruit in his lunch.
Did you know that if you feed your kid pineapple everyday for a week straight, they WILL wake up in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder with an acid burn rash on their ass?
Yeah, neither did I.
Poor C's butt. He woke up last night around 1am screaming like I've never heard. It was that unmistakeable, heart breaking, "I'm in pain - do something you stupid people!!" scream. Poop hurts, pee hurts, baby wipes hurt....I feel awful for him. Thankfully, a bath in Triple Wash and a healthy slathering of Triple Paste seems to be taking the edge off and helping it heal.
So, word of advice - no matter how much your kid loves deliciously acidic citrus fruit, take it easy on the intake.
