My hand has gone places...

...I never imagined it would. Warning: stop reading now if you don't like baby poop stories.

We recently started feeding baby cereal. All well and good, until baby stopped pooping 5 or 6 days ago. So we called the doctor and she said we should give the baby a suppository. I have never in my life had any experience with suppositories, so I was quite horrified to read the directions on the box. Mike refused to do the dirty deed, but he did pin the baby down while I inserted. And held it there for 15 minutes. Until he started pooping. Nuff said.

But the saga continues. He really didn't poop that much, so we decided to give him another one last night. Mike got the honors this time. But he didn't have to hold it there very long since baby somehow mysteriously sucked the depository into himself. And then.... nothing. We waited and waited, but nothing came out. We were totally worried about that disappearing suppository, imagining that it had gotten into his small intestines, was clogging his system, etc. But a couple of hours later, poop explosion!

We're hoping all will be.... regular.... with baby soon.

Its funny when someone who grew up so coddled and pampered has to wake up to the real world.
