Diaper Safari -Funniest Diapering Moments- Giveaway! CLOSED- Congrats Lolliegee - Page 2

post #21 of 39

On a recent vacation, I decided I would take my cloth diapers.  We had a layover and barely made the 2nd plane.  Our luggage (with our diaper stash) did not.  We arrived at our airport hotel with only 1 clean diaper.  I had 6 dirty ones.  We were not renting a car until the next morning so we were stuck without diapers.  I rinsed out the pockets, dried them with the hairdryer and ordered additional hand towels from houskeeping.  We now have 6 hand towels courtesy of the Denver Airport Crowne Plaza. PS - they worked great!

My husband told me before our son was born that he was sure that the baby's poop would come in neat, clean little packages.  I laughed, having changed many diapers before as a child care provider, and said, "buddy, you wait."  Our son was only a few days old and I was still somewhat bedbound.  He took the baby into the nursery to change his diaper.  A moment or two later I heard "LAURA!" and bolted out of bed because of how urgent his call sounded. In the process of getting ready to change the diaper, my husband of course holds the baby's legs up, thus providing a perfect firing position.  We later coined the incident the "sniper rifle" incident...there was poop clean from the changing table to four feet away on the carpet!  It was disturbing and amazing simultaneously.

Well, I'm the only person in my family into natural parenting and I'm new to cloth diapering, so my sisters are learning something new from me every time they see me and I tell them plenty of stories over the phone. So one day I was at my sister's house changing my babies diaper. I picked up the baby and caught his poop in my hand. I was quick with the hand but not with the changing being a newbie.

 

I sat there in shock that the newborn just pooped and me and my sister looked at me like, "what's she gonna do now with her crazy natural parenting antics." I said, don't just sit there, help me!, She said she thought it was part of the natural parenting process that she needed to learn about. She didn't know that I didn't want the baby to poop in my hand. IMAGINE THAT! We still laugh about that, even though she was not happy about the poop on her sofa. Ignorance is bliss!

This is funny!

post #25 of 39

My parents visited us when our son was about 10 weeks old. They graciously offered to babysit him for a couple hours at their hotel while my husband and I went to grab a meal together.

 

I left them with the usual supplies- bottle of breastmilk, a fresh diaper cover, two prefolds, flannel wipes, and a wetbag.

 

When we returned from our dinner, we were surprised to see our kiddo wearing a newspaper covered in duct tape with a sock inside. Turns out he blew through the two diapers we left for him during the first hour! So, my engineer father, always up for a challenge, fashioned a diaper for him out of USA Today, one of his tube socks, and some tape in their truck's toolbox. I'm not sure why they didn't just run out for a pack of 'sposies in a pinch like that, but I have to say, I was impressed with the ingenuity.

 

Other than an ink-stained bottom, the makeshift diaper actually worked great! :) Though, I'm not sure the editors at USA Today would appreciate how their publication was used. hahaha

One day we turned the couch over to play.  My husband removed out toddler son's cloth diaper after a pee, but failed to put one back on (since we also practiced part time elimination communication...dad was confident that all would be well).  So our little buy was sitting on dad's lap inside the turned-over sofa when I jumped in for an extra-exciting peek-a-boo.  And I literally scared the potato pancakes out of him.  All over daddy's lap.  On bare skin.  Dad kept yelling at me to get a towel but I was laughing so hard I was just trying not to pee my pants.

I think my BEST diaper "situation" had to be when Ben and Lachlann decided to poop at the same time and I only had one diaper with me.  So I am checking out of Walmart and one diaper is seeping out the side and the other child is walking with his legs as wide as possible yelling I have a POOP!!!!  The Ladies room cleared out when I started to try to clean them up without crying!

 

 

This is not funny at the time but in hindsight I am amazed that I handled it without a total breakdown.

My dad was carrying a friend's baby in church when she had a major explosive poo. It came out of her diaper in a fountain, filling the pockets of Dad's sports coat. I don't think I've seen him wear a sports coat since...

post #29 of 39

Clearly I'm not alone with the poop fountain experience!

 

When my son was about a week old, DH and I were cuddling with him on the bed after we'd taken off his dirty diaper (he'd just pooped, so it was safe for us to have him sans diaper, right?). We were admiring our squishy little naked baby and experiencing the perfect, idyllic, new family moment. I laid him on the bed between DH and I, and he suddenly tensed up, lifted both legs in the air, and shot a solid stream of poop directly at DH.

 

It was like someone had busted open a fire hydrant. I saw it happening as if in slow motion and couldn't react in time to block it or redirect the flow. All DH could do was yell, "Oh! Oh!" as he got splattered with the mess. It seemed to go on foreverAfter the pooping stopped, DS immediately fell into a deep sleep as if the incredible poop had used every ounce of energy in his body.

I cloth diaper 2 boys, 23 months and 10 months.  Having 2 in diapers in a challenge to say the least.  I started cloth diapering when DS1 was about 7 months old.  One morning, I put on his new aplix cover with the prefold just laid inside and put him in his crib for a nap while I ran to the store.  Hubby was home to "babysit".  When I came back home, DS1 has stripped off his new diaper and was standing in his crib buck naked.  That was when I learned that diapers need to be covered.  He had never tried to take off a disposable diaper, so I didn't think he would figure it out so quickly.  Needless  to say, when I started growing my stash, I switched to snaps.

post #31 of 39

This summer my kiddos and I were playing outside. I had to run in the house to get the laundry from the washing machine to hang on the line.  My 5 year old runs in the house to tell me that his baby brother had pooped and "Archer was so stinky that flies were buzzing around him!!!"  I ran outside to find my youngest who went from zero to poop-tastrophy (the kind that leaves you shaking your head and wondering where to start)  in a matter of minutes and sure enough that poor kid had flies buzzing around him. Ahh the joys of being a mommy.

post #32 of 39

So when my twins were about 18 months old they hit me with some twingenuity.  One day I found some poop on the floor.  Well sure enough there was one of my daughters with her diaper unsnapped.  I cleaned up the mess and put her in a new diaper.  Not 10 min later I hear my son yell out "MAMA, the twins are playing with poop"  I go into the room where they were and they were indeed playing with poop, but they were both in diapers still!  I checked their diapers, nothing there!  Then it dawned on me and I removed one, sure enough, just one little skid.  They girls had been reaching into each other's diapers to get the poop out! 

post #33 of 39

We were about to sit down for dinner and I hear this grunting noise coming from the bathroom off of the kitchen.  Upon further inspection I find our red in the face two year old sitting on the bathroom floor.  Since we are working on potty training I couldn't help, but ask..

"Hey kiddo, you um.. pooping?"  

She replies "NO"

Bewildered, I ask "you lying?"

Her response: "Yes" and she proceeds to ROAR (like a LION) in my face ;)

 

 

post #34 of 39

When my daughter was first potty training, we were visiting a friends house, and I noticed that she seemed to be suddenly very serious and focused, while playing at the music table with her friends.  Knowing this was often an early warning sign of a poop, I ran over to get her diaper off and get her to the potty before she started.  I quickly unsnapped the diaper, and in the process flung the poop (which she had apparently already done) across the room.  Ack!!  I had just been bragging about how few accidents she had been having, too.  Girlie thought it was hysterical, and to this day whenever we visit said friend's house, will retell the story of how she "pooped on the floor". 

post #35 of 39

Was trying to get the hang of diapering a boy after having had 6 girls and he took aim at his oldest sister and then like a scud missle he shifted his aim for his baby sister and fired! Her jaw dropped as he peed all over her new outfit she had put on in celebration of his birth! She managed to  quiver out "He peed me. He peed my clothes. He peed my leg too." A few weeks later I caught her squatting over his head and asked what she was doing. She answered, "I pee him back!!" I managed to stop her before she showered him!

LOLOLOL. This reminds me of when my younger brother was born.  My father, still very much an inexperienced diaper changer was forced to change my little brother's diaper.  In the middle of the change, my brother decided to go #2.  My dad panicked! Rather than reach for the ready-to-go clean diaper next to him, he swiftly placed his hand underneath.  My mother and I heard a scream.  "LYDIA!!!!!"  We came running. My mom sure that something was horribly wrong with the baby. My father stood there with his cupped hand, completely mortified.  The funniest part was that the poop was perfectly formed like a serving of soft-serve ice cream.  

 

We busted up laughing.  He was fuming at that point.  "Well dont just stand there," he said.  We called him Foster Freeze for weeks.
