There will be poop

This post actually began last night, but then life happened.  Did I mention that I am a compromising mother.  Yesterday the compromise was to do all my mothering responsibilities and to go to work.  Today is a different story.  Today I tell the post I have been writing in my head. 

Hint:  Many issues with a baby's bottom can be solved easily with fresh air...on the bottom that is.  So, sans diaper at night is a great cure.  My little one never has had real diaper rash (thank you cloth diapers), but seems to have irritating poop with the recent culprit of grapes. 

Setting the scene: Rocking Mr. B to sleep with towel under him to soak up anything.  He is asleep and about ready for the crib transfer when I hear a rumbling...oh no not just a fart...pooping (sitting in poop has never been a concern for him, so he stays asleep).  Hmm what to do?  Wipe up poop best I can with the towel and lay him down in crib.  Pat myself on back for creativity and keeping him asleep (he is a restless sleeper).  Then, exit dark room into light and see the poop on my pants.  Mr. B is asleep in my bedroom, but luckily there are clean things on the clothesline.  Whew!!

Diapering Hint Take 2:  When baby has irritation on bottom, let him/her sleep without diaper, while you are armed with wet wipes, face mask, and full gown (sounds like labor and delivery ;)

PS this post is sans pictures on one wants to see...unless you are curious to see how his blueberry poop stained my clothes...ironic I know
