In my attempts to beat the yeast, I picked up something called Genetian Violet. It’s a topical antiseptic and a natural remedy for Thrush.
My directions were clear… put it on myself and then feed her. She’d then get it in her mouth and we’d both be treated. Simple enough.
I woke up the next morning and my baby looked like she’d been sucking on a purple marker all night!
I’m not sure where we went wrong… She’s not a messy eater, but somehow it smeared all over her face.
It faded… slowly, and towards the end of the day looked like a huge bruise. So, I spent most of the day making sure she had a pacifier in her mouth when we were in public to avoid having CPS called to the house.
Too bad the Pantone color of the year for 2013 is emerald green, because this is a stunning shade of purple.
My baby looks like the Joker.
