*warning the following post may contain graphic details of infant poop...*
we've had a rough couple days around here w/ little parker dude. last friday the guy pooped...then saturday came, no poop...sunday...no poop...monday...no poop. i'm getting a little concerned even though he seems less than bothered. by monday afternoon i'm becoming a little alarmed even though it's suppose to be normal for breastfed babies to not poop for a couple days...whatever. i called the pediatrician she says give him a suppository...or 1/2 of one. i'm about to freak because i've never had this experience before. kids in my family have no problem pooping. so we do the whole deal and wait. he poops just fine about 10 minutes later....and he pukes right along with it. he does this 3 times..twice that night and once tuesday morning. so i call the ped. back and she says don't give him anymore and just wait and see if he starts going on his own. so we do. he didn't poop anymore that day or all day wednesday. tuesday night was our worse night yet sleep wise and i'm convinced it's cuz the dude is miserable. so i pray that he poops soon! last night he did better even w/out a poop. then this a.m. he wakes up and YES! he POOPS! and it's normal and all is well. he is in a great mood today. so i decide to head to the mall....you know where this is going now don't you?????
yes, we JUST get into the mall. i've got my starbucks in hand, my cute new wedge peep toes on and a sassy little polka dot tank and i'm feeling like it's a great day.... and then he wakes up ....red faced and *POW* explosive, projectile poop. it comes out of his diaper, into his carseat and shoots in his face. i have no idea how the law of physics work and how that is even possible but it happened. right before i hit the gap too! so i hightail it out of the mall and by the time we get to the van he has his hands in it..all of his arms, legs, feet...oh it's awful. i just knew at any minute someone was going to stop me and want to admire him and then take a peek into the seat and see him covered from head to toe w/ this mustard seedy poop spread all over him! we made it out to the van. i pull the carseat out of the stroller and the poop is leaking out of the seat...through the little seatbelt holes on the back of the seat. it's dripped down into the basket at the bottom of the stroller....where the baby sling is as well as my purse. yes, there is poop all freakin' over the place. i commence to change this little guy the best i can. in the diaper bag i had 5 wipes, a onesie and 2 diapers and it took every bit of it to clean him off! talk about a flippin mess! but man, that kid was happy the rest of the day!
seriously, this is my life now.
and this beats him pooping on our youth pastor when he was like a week old.
