Getting pooped on

I was at Target the other day scanning the Father’s Day cards, with Ruby wrapped to my chest, when I felt something wet on my flip-flopped foot.  I looked down expecting to see yet another stream of spit-up falling from Ruby’s mouth.

Instead, I saw poop.  Somehow this poop made it past the diaper, through her outfit and around the wrap.  I realized only slightly before she lay screaming on the scummy, public restroom changing table that I didn’t have any clean clothes with me.

Why?  Because I had used the clean change of clothes I keep in her diaper bag the night before.  When she pooped past the diaper, through her outfit and onto my khaki colored capris.

What did I learn from this?  She really has grown out of size 1 diapers and there’s no sense in using the rest in the jumbo box if I end up wasting money on emergency clothes.

  1. Baby poop is the most annoying thing ever. But I’m very impressed at the amount of blowouts she has! I guess it was a good thing you were at Target so you could buy her a new outfit! You could always use those leftover diapers to make a diaper cake/ basket for someone in the future.

    On another note, I was thinking about you guys today and how Ruby is probably getting close to baby food! That means less nursing (yay!) but a whole new can of worms. 🙂 can’t wait to hear about it.

    • I know! Just when I was getting the hang of the breastfeeding! I’m actually not looking forward to it. But I guess the good thing about that is I can only be pleasantly surprised.

  2. It’s probably sort of terrible of me that I laughed at this post, but it totally cracked me up! My kids were world champion diaper blowers and I, too, have had poop on my foot in public. Good times.

  3. I couldn’t help but recall Triumph the Comedy Dog … “Good enough to poop on!”

    This morning I was “sleeping in” (heh), and the husband tossed the baby at me because he was being fussy. Well, he was fussy because he had a loaded diaper (hubby just thought Squishy was just hungry), and it ended up exploding everywhere in the bed. That’s okay, I usually end up doing a load of sheets at 7am on a Saturday anyway …

  4. I always try to push through the last half of the box of diapers when they out grow them, only to realize the same thing… it isn’t worth it! I always find someone to give the rest to! It seems like they always wait until after I just bought a huge box to hit a growth spurt!
