When we left the hospital on Thursday, Johnny Mac Pippin had not pooped yet that day and knowing we were supposed to be looking for at least two poops, we started to get a little anxious.
Not to mention the fact that I had not yet changed a single dog-gone diaper and I was kind of dying to change one (it’s been ages since I’ve changed a baby’s diaper!)
Johnny Mac Pippin was nursing and nursing and nursing — and hours pass — still no poop (or pee, for that matter.)
Just when we were wondering whether we should worry or not and feeling thankful that we had a well baby appointment the next day — the poop hit the fan.
Mustard yellow, watery poop for the win! It was everywhere and it took all three of us to get Johnny Mac Pippin clean.
And then he very quickly pooped again.
And again and again and again and he’s pretty much not stopped pooping.
Oh, he did finally pee, too — all over his mother and his changing table and the elephant on the table and four extra diapers, the baby wipes, the nasal aspirator, an extra onesie, two receiving blankets and his stroller three feet across the room. And while he hasn’t peed non-stop, he’s certainly made up for going almost 18 hours without peeing.
Johnny Mac Pippin is an expert pooper and pee-er. I’m very proud.
