First Diaper Duty

Well, the little dude's had a couple poo's and a couple pee's. He's ahead of schedule for a newborn. Of course, we were lucky enough that the first couple poo's were handled by the nursing staff (the second was even "passed over" by the pediatrician).

Then came the third....

I suppose we should've been more diligent in checking to see if he needed changing... I felt some funny action down low after lunch, but no fussing.... Jen and I both ended up taking naps, and in the midst of some other moving, we decided to check him out. Well -- it happened. He had the nasty down low, and parts were dried on 'im. Scrub, scrub, scrub! With cold, wet wipes, he gets a bit perturbed.... And of course, it takes a little longer with the dried up gunk...

And with time and air, little squirters squirt....

He started gettin' it all over my hand and subsequently anything that was in the opposite angle of the squirter-hand relationship. That apparently also included a half dozen fresh linens... Doh!

So, Jen was quick to call the nurse and laughingly let 'em know that WMJ had christened the room and needed some fresh linens ;)

    Dude...My son's first poo was my first diaper change...EVER. See I have this conviction against changing the diaper on anything that is not my child. It was aweful...far worse than I ever expected. Don't worry, the poos get better too. I mean they aren't so....well...lets just say they get better!

    I sure am glad I warned you yesterday about what little boys do when you unwrap their diapers. When the air hits 'things' they just can't help it and which direction he decides to send it. Be sure to clean that poo off real good or his bottom will get raw. You're doing good Dad, keep up the good work!
