Everyone Poops (My Body Science Series)We have a small problem. Some people may view it as a large gooey problem. I would stop reading RIGHT NOW if you don't want to discuss poo. I have never in my life been so interested in this bodily function.  LO has a milk protein allergy that resulted in 20+ poopy diapers in a 24 hour period when she was first born.  DH and I asked repeatedly if this was normal at the hospital and were greeted with lots of nurses smirking and told, "Babies poop a lot." Reality check! That is not normal and our pediatrician almost had a heart attack when we mentioned it again at our first appointment. She was put on a hypoallergenic formula and all was back on track.

Until last week, when we began the blow-out marathon.  I seem to be a prime target but not a lot of people or things have been spared. LO is on medication that seems to increase blow-out city.  We lower the medication and projectile vomit will hit unsuspecting friends.  Which is better for the LO?  The pediatrician decided that a blow-out is preferable.  So I am now in search of a blow-out proof diaper.  We have gone up a size in her current diapers which has a nifty line that tells you when she is wet.  But they seem unable to accommodate our, ummmmm well, predicament.  Any suggestions??

She finds the whole situation to be hilarious!
