Yes, you read that right. I am once again, going to talk about poo. When your a mommy to a 6 month old you life revolves around a very few things; naps, sleep deprivation, solid foods, teething, and yes, poo. I knew that when we started on solids the relatively sweet breast milk only diapers were a thing of the past. But the knowledge didn't prepare me for the reality. Chris and I had begun to do what only parents of babies can see themselves doing, we mentally rated which baby food was the worst on it's way out. Of all the ones we have tried so far, rice cereal, peas, squash, and green beans; green beans were rated the most awful to deal with. That was before today.
Yesterday we tired carrots. Baby Boy loved them, he wolfed down the whole container and was still wanting more so I fed him an old fav, peas. He ate about 2/3 of that container and did a whole nursing session besides so he was quite stuffed when he went to bed.
This morning, after his usual morning nursing session he was really fussy so I thought he might be hungry still. I heated up some pumped breastmilk and started to give it to him when all of the sudden the reason for the fussiness came clear. It was only a little and I knew he probably wasn't done but, OH MY GOD, did that stink! So, against all that I have learned about my baby over the past 6 months, I went ahead and started to change his diaper. That was a mistake. I got the diaper off, was holding his legs in the air, wiping his butt when Poosplosion '08 happened. Thankfully his red faced straining was a cue and I was able to move out of the way in time but it was still disgusting to behold. It was like horribly smelly lava.
I have now come to the conclusion that mixed veggie poo far out ranks green bean poo on the stink 'o meter.
