I emailed her a letter at the View website...not sure it will do any good, but it made me feel better to try to educate her a bit.

I didn't see the show yesterday but read what was said on here. I've been very excited to see Rosie back on TV (although i've only seen 1/2 an episode) and thought of her comment, "well, at least it's Rosie. Given a little education on PA, I think she would apologize, put an expert on, and educate others as well." She does seem to be a wonderful advocate for children. So I sent her an email....and then I went to her blog. OMG--it's a little strange...I hope she doesn't disappoint. I am really hoping she will be the public voice to help educate for PA once she reads our emails and researches a bit??!!

I've always found her tiresome and I think she's overwhelming the other women on the show... it seems like she's constantly yapping on there now. So maybe that made me a little more ticked off at her comment than I normally would be. Still, I wrote her a letter on the email link. I'll be curious to know if they address this in a later show.

I saw Rosie's comment on the View and I thought it was very insensitive for her to say something like that.
She is somebody that should use her celebrity status to inform and educate people - instead she is obviously yet another person who just dosen't "get" it and I am planning on e-mailing the View also and hopefully with this flood of e-mails they are getting from all of us, maybe they will take a moment on-air to try to educate the public on this serious and life-threatening condition.
Oh, and you know that if it were one of Rosie's children who had a severe peanut allergy, she would be doing public-awareness already.

Can't say my child's even had diaper rash that called for drastic treatement. I shudder at the intensity of diaper rash she might be talking about.
Honestly? Nope. No diaper rash. I'm absolutely obsessive about butts. I think it's the nurse in me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I was an every 2 hour diaper changer (while they are awake) and still am with my daughter now. Peachy smooth, pearlescent, [i]kissable butts[/i]. No ****. [i]Literally[/i].
No advice, absolutely not, but I've always bathed my children daily, and always dunk the baby's bottom before bedtime, (despite a daily bath) and thoroughly allow it to air dry after gentle patting with a towel before bed. Despite those recommendations they give new mothers. (BAD MOMMY)
No creams, no powder (definitely no silica), and I mean, it......absolutely kissable bottoms, but no, never had to resort to canine slobber. Do you think she needs to evaluate why it ever reached that point? <<<>>>
It's just [i]unthinkable[/i] for me, a nurse, a mother,......oh, you know, a [i]woman[/i] to not do everything within my power to [i]prevent[/i] another's sore bottom. In particular, my children's. oooOOOOOch.
[i]Forbid[/i].
If the pediatrician pulled back the diaper to check the bottom on the baby, and found [i]diaper rash[/i], I'd be mortified. It's just my hangup. And yeah, I know there are some things that might trigger it, but if it's due to long waits between changes and lack of a good regular rinse, shame shame shame.
Was I off, or did she say she did this with *all* of her children????
And hey, next thing ya know, PETA will be giving her a ring. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
General disclaimer: I am not offering advice, absolutely not. Just getting ready to pucker up. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

My kids would get diaper rashes only when sick, must have been the "full glass" thing because once we got the food allergy thing going, along w/ poor dd's lactose intolerance, no more problems. I was a frequent diaper changer too, work in a nursing home, force of habit. Kids got daily baths, as well as a bottom dunk after a mid-day poop, as a rule no creams, and NEVER powder (ds had asthma). We saw a lot of doctor's, not one recommended the dog treatment, positive I would not have followed that advice though even if I had heard it.
So now the question is, do we really want Rosie to back us all up as a community, when the world knows how she treats diaper rash? Could do more harm than good to have Rosie in our corner.

Well, I might have missed the boat on why, but 2 minutes in a poop sometimes gave my dd blsters. So sad. It could be awful. My first and all, but I thought it was fruit and fruit juice(now thinking corn syrup) and did my best. But before knowing food allergies, she had several bouts of blister bottom, and *not* from waiting for a change.
Regardless, I would not have resorted to a dog licking her hiney! Desitin in thick, gobby layers did the trick an a day or two! And then we just slathered the stuff on her, then ds whether they needed it or not! becca
