Guys understand this, babies poop.
I don’t understand it. Guys can watch blood thirsty movies, see players bash each other and bleed on the playing field and then freak out when the baby needs to be changed.
So, guys get over it. It is part of what humans do and you gotta take care of the poop.
Babies come as a package. There is the cute and cuddly part of having a baby and then the not so much fun poopy part.
So, get over the thing you have against poop and do what you have to do to take care of it.
That is, clean the little one up and go with the flow (Pun intended). There is no way around it. Babies do what babies do and as a parent you have to deal with the poo or whatever your cute little name for it is.
As your little one grows up so does the poop. The poop comes in all shapes and colors. It comes at times you least expect it. The poop seems to come especially when you don’t want it to. Like when you put on the new outfit to show the little one off to family and friends.
Babies do what babies do.
Especially understand this, poop isn’t just one person’s job.
This diaper business is for both parents. Recognize that changing diapers is not one person’s or one gender’s job. Dealing with the poop is both parents job.
You can make deals with the devil to get out of your responsibility for changing the little one but you are going to have to deal with it at some point.
Like when your spouse is gone and the little poop machine has filled up another diaper.
So, get in on the diaper stuff from the beginning and share the duties of dealing with the poop.
So, babies poop its part of life and you as the baby’s parent are part of your child’s life. Giggles, burps and all.
Thankfully babies grow up and out of the diapers sooner or later.
But wait there is more coming like potty training. You’re part of that too.
