Speaking of heads, on Sunday we made parenting mistake #2.
We decided to wash his hair for the first time -that is, using some kind of soap. Until this point we’ve used nothing at all, just water. So we thought ‘shampoo will be too harsh -how about hand soap?’ Just a dab and a big rinse.
But then 30 minutes later he began to cry for no reason. We thought he was tired from taking him out to friends’ house the night before and were vowing to never leave the house again. He had just eaten, had a clean nappy, had all his limbs…
So we used the magic breastfeeding and he fell asleep. When he woke up he started scratching his head, and that’s when we knew it was the dang soap. We rinsed him again and put lotion on his head for the past two days.
