I’ve seen my fair share of Poonamis, Number Threes and bright red glowing butt cheeks. Kids and poo. I could write a thesis!
There was the time that we were at the pub for a friend’s birthday and Pebble filled her onesie right up to the neck.
There was the bath poo phase, when it seemed that Pebble loved nothing more than letting go in the tub.
Then there have been those mornings when I’ve picked a happy, squealing, kicking baby from his cot and unzipped his sleeping bag to find a stinky, ooey, gooey puddle of poo.
Or that time that I walked in on Rocky, lying on his play mat, smiling and kicking his legs in the result of a particularly nasty Number Three.
Or the many, many times that Rocky has scored himself a bit of “Poo Shoulder”. That boy – I’ve never seen anything quite like it!
Here are a few more poo stories from some experienced Mum’s for your enjoyment. I had a laugh at the splash to the face – oh my!
I’m now pretty good at preparing for and responding to a Poonami situation and hope you can all benefit from my experience.
Tips for Coping with a Baby Poo Explosion
- keep an extra bag of nappies, wipes, nappy rash cream and baby clothes in the boot of the car for those double emergencies.
- for those glowing butt cheek situations keep your nappy bag stocked with quality nappy cream, like Bepanthen.
- restock your nappy bag as soon as you get home from an outing. It will save you from forgetting something in your rush to get out the door next time (I must take my own advice on this one!)
- if your bub is prone to prolific and frequent poo explosions it might be a good idea to pack spare clothes for yourself, just in case. That’s one fashion statement you don’t want to be known for.
- keep an old towel and a water bottle in the car for cleaning up messes that wipes just won’t cope with.
- line the baby car seat with a small towel, to save you needing to wash the car seat after a Number Three. Or buy one of those fancy car seat protectors.
- have a sense of humour! If all else fails, laugh and chuck them in the bath.
