I'm getting tired of this...

It seems that ever since Olivia was about 2 months old, she has been having a number of poopy "accidents". For the last month or so, there is at least one outfit fatality a day. PG and I both agree that Avery never had these kind of accidents daily...maybe once or twice a week. We buy the expensive diapers, that by the way, are 10 cents a piece. We put them on her the right way, after all, there's not really much you can do wrong there. You'd think that we were in the clear, but no. It just keeps happening! When I hear a BIG noise coming from this adorable LITTLE girl, I just know what is in store for me. I walk over to her, and she's all smiles, and then comes the stink. I pick her up, and look at her back, and sure enough...another explosion through 2 layers of clothing. So, needless to say, I'm getting tired of the explosive poop already...

Hey! I'm sure you just wrote this as an anecdote...another humorous (?), annoying part about motherhood, not necessarily looking for advice, but I couldn't help but pass this along: Cullen was blowing out a lot at about 3 and 4 months old. I tried switching him to a bigger size diaper. He's been wearing 3's since then, even though "technically" he fits into 2's. The bigger size has really helped...the diaper goes up his back higher and he blows out much, much less. Worth a shot...unless of course she's already in 3's? Changing a dirty outfit once a day would certainly get old:)

Oh, but there are wrong ways to put on a diaper! If you don't fold those elastic legs outward toward her hips before you button her up with the velcro, it won't hold!

As far as upward accidents, try fastenting a little tighter -- but not around her tummy. Rather, angle the tapes over her hips, right under her belly.

And never separate the baby from the bag...the diaper bag that is. I learned that the hard way.
