Here it is people, proof that I am no longer just any old blogger. I am now a Mummy Blogger. My very first poo story. I feel that this is some sort of rite of passage!
Picture the scene….brand new Mummy with a baby that is a mere 36 hours old. In the SCBU talking to the very nice doctor who is explaining that they want to do a new type of xray on Piran. He undresses and examines Piran then asks me if I want to be the one that changes his nappy as it is wet. I readily agree, slightly nervous as this is only nappy number 2 for me. I remove the nappy and as I do the little man deposits a lovely poo straight into his babygrow. The embarrassment and shame laughed off as I admit I am new to this. The thing is, it is not just poo, this is meconium. Dark green tar like poo. Lovely. So I roll up the babygrow and clean up the ‘area’ (NOT simple, that stuff sticks. Like tar. Scrubbing was required!) and slide a clean nappy underneath. Before I can even do it up, Bingo, he shoots he scores, poo number two. As I remove the nappy and wipe the mess and slide another new one underneath we have a wee wee shower incident. Well, I can say that this is going well. The doctor and nurse are still there talking to me as I mess up the nappy change in perfect fashion. The shame! Before I even have chance to deal with the wee situation Piran deposits poo number three and as I cleaned that up it was topped off with wee number two. The second dirty nappy was removed the baby was wiped and I got a clean nappy on and done up. The relief was palpable, from my side and theirs as I think they thought for a minute that they would need to intervene!
So there we have it, one single nappy change, in front of an audience involved:
Nappy x 3
Poo x 3
Wee x 2
Clean clothes x 1
