The situation has happened one too many times for the veteran parents. You walk into your baby’s room to find poop all over her crib sheets. How frustrating! Hopefully, you were using a protective pad under your sheets to keep the poop from your mattress, which is most likely waterproof anyway. If some poop got on the mattress, you should use a cleaning spray and paper towel to disinfect the area.
Crib sheets are a pain to change especially if you use bumpers. You have to get the sheets to fit over the mattress while maneuvering the bumpers out of the way. Some parents take the mattress out before trying to fit the sheets on. This can be a hassle because you have to get the mattress out while leaving the bumpers on if you have the bumpers tied tightly. You can also leave them loosely tied and take them off each time before you take out the mattress. You do not want them to be too loose though because that could be a choking hazard.
A crib change might be easy enough, although what are you going to do when your baby poops in her favorite chair or bouncer? Carefully read the directions to see how the material can come off of the play chair. You don’t want to break the chair especially if it is not under the manufacture warranty. Then, you would have to purchase a new part because you do not want you baby playing in a broken toy. Never place her into a toy that has loose threads or broken parts even if you think it looks safe.
Blow outs, poopy diapers that get everywhere, are a part of life for parents. They happen when your baby becomes bigger and taller although her diapers stay the same size. Most parents are scraping pennies and want to use every last diaper even if it is a little bit small. Do your self a favor, and change small diapers often. You can change them for every little pee and fart to avoid a major blow out. Also, look forward to buying the next size up, which should fit your baby much better.
