Conversation (Warning: Poop Story)

Me: So he had a huge poop explosion, huh?
Mike: Yes, the worst I've ever seen. It wasn't that there was all that much more poop than usual. It was just the distance it traveled from his bum. Up to his shoulders and down to both feet.
Me: (chortling)

Every blog written by the mother of an infant includes poop explosion stories. :) I am SO GLAD I am not attempting this particular path in life for at least another five years, because I am not at all ready for the poop.

Context? Was this a disastrous diaper change? Or a disastrous timing of a diaper change?

strange bird, the poop is pretty disgusting, but it's not nearly as nasty as I thought it would be. When it's your own, it's tolerable.

John, I see you must be one of the unitiated ;) Baby had this poop explosion while he was in his jumper wearing his diaper. Unbeknownst to me before baby came, diapers only rarely hold a baby's poop. (Well, at least my baby's poop)

I'm rolling back my mind to when my younger brother was still in diapers... I think what really helped in those situations was that I didn't help out at all and never had to deal with that. Is that an option for you?

having tag-teamed with caroline on one of baby e's poops explosions, i can testify to his incredible ability to get poop to travel in unbelievable ways. especially given his relatively upright position when the poop happens.

are you sure it's not something to do with that jumper? he was in it the night i helped.

well then we should hope that he figures out how best to use it for the good of all humanity...

Amy, I think you're right. The jumper has a distinct poop-inducing affect on him. Could also contribute to the incredible distance it travels....
