Ohhhhhh... Crap!

I had planned on doing an entirely different post today, but $#!+ happens.  Haha… just kidding.  Sorta.  Hubs, my mother in law, and baby W offered to take me out for a birthday lunch yesterday.  They even picked me up from work.  Very sweet of them.  When we arrived at the restaurant, my mother in law (who was sitting next to baby W in the back seat) unstrapped the baby and picked him up.  I opened the rear door to grab the diaper bag and noticed a funky smell.  I looked at the car seat and realized it was covered in poop.  I told A and my mil that the baby was going to need a diaper change and began cleaning the car seat.  Then I noticed my poor mil had poop all over her!  On her shirt, skirt, and arms!!  Yuck!!  Luckily we were near a few shops so she was able to go in and purchase a whole new outfit.  Does this ever happen to anyone else?!?  No??  Just me??  We seem to have one of these diaper explosions once a week and it’s usually out the side of the diaper.  I feel like we’re doing something wrong.  Wrong brand of diaper?  Wrong size?  You’d think after 7 months, we’d know how to diaper correctly!  Any suggestions?



  1. I came over to say that I'll add your blog to the blogroll and had to laugh at this post! My babe (4 1/2 months) has always been the queen of poopy blowouts - it is awful. (Worst to date was a few weeks ago when she blew out all over my husband's suit in the middle of church - he literally had poop dripping down his suit!) The only thing that we have found that keeps the blowouts in is using cloth diapers (we use gdiapers with prefolds as inserts). We traveled this week and used disposables and actually took some cloth covers to put over them, which helped contain the blowouts (though she still got me a few times). Basically any brand or size of disposables leaves us likely to have major blowouts!

    1. Thank you for the suggestion! We've had our share of messes at church too. Explosions always seem to happen at the WORST possible time!

    2. I know, it's so true! It's like murphy's law - right along with the baby law saying that the baby will always wake up from her nap RIGHT as soon as I either start a) eating or b) breathing treatments. ;-)
