I have talked previously about poo explosions (poonamis) and I am sure you think that this is an exaggeration, so I thought I would share one of our messier incidents.
When my little one was born he was the king of frequent Poos, roughly every 2 hours (but typically the minute he had a fresh nappy on). So I had no idea what people were talking about when referring to poo explosions.
But oh did I find out! As our little one got bigger, his poos became less frequent and much bigger!!
I was in a local shopping centre in Butlers one morning. It was packed and I stupidly bought a tea and scone. I spent over 10 minutes with a tray in one hand, pushing a buggy in the other trying to find a seat (in a very cramped cafe!).
Eventually a seat became free so I manoverd the buggy into place and sat down. I put the little one on my lap for a change of scenery for him. I had just buttered my scone when I heard a big rumble from his nappy and I just knew it was a big one.
So I sat there contemplating what should I do. Do I leave the tea and scone I so longed for and go straight to the baby room or do I take 5 minutes to eat the scone, have some tea and then go. 5 minutes won’t make much of a difference I am sure. So I popped some tissues behind his top to protect it (just in case) and took my 5 minute break.
Once I was done, I carried the little one in one hand, pushed the buggy in the other to get him upstairs to the baby room. I couldn’t put him down as everyone knows the biggest no no in poonami’s is pressure on the nappy!
In the short 2 minutes it took me to get to the changing room, not only did I discover we did infact have the biggest poonami ever, but this had spread up his back and leaked into my top! I have plenty of emergency clothes for the little one, but none for me! 🙈🙈
So I tried by best to wash my top and had to walked around the shops with a big wet patch on my top before starting my 30 minute walk home.
Lesson of the day, in the realm of poonami’s, 5 minutes makes all the difference!
