So I read a post recently by Mama G, and it reminded me of a recent situation I was in. Which turned into the grossest thing I have had to do, baby wise. I have had to do grosser things but I won't go into those details here.
A couple of weeks ago I had a meeting on campus in the morning. So Leo and I packed up and headed to campus for the day because there was no point in driving there and then coming back before class started. I packed 4 cloth diapers and was thinking that was more than enough since he generally only needs a changing after a nap so every 2-3 hours.
And then at some point in the day baby decided to poop, a lot. So first change of the day happens, and then twenty minutes later he does it again... umm maybe that is a fluke? Change diaper again, then about 10 minutes later, another poop. This keeps repeating until we are on the last diaper. I tell him, okay kid this is the last one until Daddy comes and gets you, and that is not for another couple of hours. What does he do 20 minutes later? Poops.
I just sat there in shock for a bit, not really knowing what to do next. Then I put on my mom face and did the best I could.
This meant taking off that last dirty diaper and wiping/scrubbing out as much poop as I could with a burp cloth. Then spreading/covering whatever essence was left in the diaper with diaper cream. I also diaper creamed up his bottom. I was not wanting him to have to sit in his own poop for a couple of hours and get a terrible rash.
So there is it, not my greatest moment but I didn't really know what else to do.
Oh and he didn't get a diaper rash. At least that worked out as planned.
