So one of the things I remember from when my neice was a wee baby is that wee babies can go a few days without pooping and then when they do, it’s a giant mess.
After starting to do all of my “research” about having a baby of my own, I learned that this was quite common and happened to a lot of babies once they were around 6 weeks old. Some babies poop several times a day and some babies poop every several days.
Well, apparently Mason is a fast learner because at 4 weeks, he’s already started saving up his poop to create very impressively disgusting diapers. He’ll poop on Friday morning and then not again until Monday. By Sunday night, we were going “Well, if he doesn’t poop by tomorrow morning, we’ll call the doctor” and then before we could think about calling the next morning…. KABLOOEY!!
I’m pretty sure I’d rather have 1-2 reasonable dirty diapers every day than 1 horrifying diaper every few days, but I guess it’s not up to me. My little early learner…. Although he’d be better off smiling or cooing early than reaching this “milestone” but what can you do??
Be glad I spared you all a picture with this entry….
