it always comes back to poo

who knew that the topic of conversation about our child tends to be about poop? like i said before, when our son was first born i didn’t really know what i was doing when it came to breastfeeding. so, he wasn’t pooing. after going to the lactation consultant they gave us a chart to keep track of his bowel movements and they also showed you what they should look like. yes, that’s right, there is a chart showing you what your childs poo should look like.

i have never talked so much about poo in my life, until having my son. we were keeping track of how many poos he had a day and making sure they were the right color. it usually looks like mashed peas or mustard, which is what is normal for a baby. it’s only time to worry when you see like blood or if the poo is black.

every time he poos he tends to make this ahhhh sound. i have never laughed so hard in my life. my husband and i still laugh every time he goes poo because of the sounds/faces he makes. it’s really funny cause it sounds like he is going to blow an o ring from trying to push one out. afterwards he looks so happy, but who wouldn’t be happy after getting out what i have seen in some of those diapers. i still can’t believe how much we talk about poo in this house but i guess that happens in everyhousehold with a baby. it’s not a good morning without having a blowout with your morning coffee.

  1. Not just with babies, my oldest is 3 1/2 and somehow it's still a regular topic - mostly now in the form of, her in the bathroom telling me that she's pooped and needs help.... Wonder when it really does advance past this topic!!
