I wonder if garlic sprouts at 98 degrees and in the dark? LOL.

Anyone here garden?

PPD is by far the worse grossness ever, in the whole world, that I have yet experienced.

I have no idea what the future-menopause, and aging, holds though.

I think PPD will win.

Yes yes yes! Thankfully my pp bleeding is almost done with so the stink is lessening now.

And then there's the faint smell of old breastmilk that manages to get on your clothes and baby overnight because you've both slept in a puddle all night long. And the rash you get from the same thing.

And hormones have made my face look like I'm a 13 year old going through puberty again.

Gosh I remember with ds2 he was so chunky he was about 4 weeks or so old and just had this stank to him. I couldn't figure out what it was for the life of me. Well come to find out it was old stanky milk that got in his fat rolls in his neck and I wasn't ever able to get it all cleaned out. Poor baby had a big rash and the worst smelling neck ever. It was nasty. He smelled so good after his bath and from there on out, and still to this day I still am anal about cleaning his neck because of it.

i stink much worse pp than i did while pregnant. major culprits are the bleeding, which has increased in stinkiness as its gotten browner, and the fact that my c-section incision developed (drumroll...) a yeast infection! YES because i have to wear underwear so that i can wear a pad for pp bleeding, my incision wasn't getting enough airflow and staying cool, so i developed a damn yeast infection and have to clean it, dry it, and powder it four times a day. the only thing i'm capable of doing four times a day at this juncture is nurse. i mean, i'm only eating twice a day.

Ha! There ain't no STINK on earth like the yeast infection in the incision stink! I had that with Lili and man oh day! Even stink would say it stinks.

Use your peri bottle to hose it off when you pee. Pat it. Blow dry it. Powder it.

And here

dear sweet jesus i don't even want to admit this, but kieran needs to go on the stinky thread. :
his umb. cord stump has a very pungent odor, and i'm at a loss. it doesn't look infected to me (no red streaks, small amount of goo but it looks normal compared to everything i've read/seen, doesn't seem to hurt him when touched, etc.). i've cleaned it with both water and alcohol (to try to get rid of the smell), but nothing helps. my poor son, he's too young to develop a funk complex!

but man do i love this sweet stinky baby!!

dd1's cord got really gross...do you have any goldenseal? if you do, break open a capsule and sprinkle the powder on the stump (be generous!) at every change for a couple days. Use a q-tip to clean out any goo first. If you don't have goldenseal, you can dab some neosporin on it. Again, be generous, really get it good around the base. Then be sure to clean all the old off before putting new on at the next change.

According to my mw, alcohol isn't a good idea--it dries the skin too much, causing miniscule lacerations (kinda like how your hands can crack when they are really dry during the winter, yk?) which makes infection even more likely and prolongs healing. She recommends witch hazel instead of alcohol, or even better, lavender essential oil.

Just fwiw....

dude, will someone please tell me what "nak" means?
i have no idea, and i've seen it a bunch of times now.

pearl's stump STANK too. mw & ped said to clean it with water - a soaking wet washcloth to get the goo out, but both warned it wouldn't eradicate the funk. then, if almost fell off - but it was hanging by a thread. then, it seemed like it wanted to reattach itself. good lord.

then it finally fell off, but there seems to be another round of drying and bits falling off. ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Hooray for postpartum stink! :Puke

An ode to the Stank:

How foul, how foul my gaseous plumage
that waketh me with noxious fumage
My dripping pits, all stank with sweat
that leave my shirt all gross and wet
And curdled milk- that sour smell-
hath soaked into my shirt as well!
Could someone perhaps tell me please-
why I reek like cottage cheese?
What rotten food- what ghastly scent
could rival my predicament?
As I exude these pungent wafts
and replace the air with nasty drafts
I cannot help but wonder what
has made me smell like rotten butt.

Hooray for the Stinky thread! The GLORIOUS STINKY THREAD! Halelujiah!
