That's why you wait until two months old. At that point the poo will become more normal and flop out if the diaper into the toilet. I was as you describe at first. It took me a while to stop gagging but I eventually learned to tolerate the smell. And Charlie's soap does all the actual cleaning. The wife did it all for me, but I think the process was a cold wash followed by a warm wash and dried normally most of the time. Occasionally she would put them on the clothes line to sun bleach any stains. Or hang things that couldn't be dried in the laundry room.

And yeah, I'm off sedge garden.

Swaddling is key...

We actually transitioned to those sleep sacks. They have velcro swaddled wings which make the swaddle tighter and more efficient. If you swaddled my son in a regular blanket he would work out of it in 3 hrs...and once his arms where out that meant sleep was over.

Some of the classes you attend call this lazy. Well there job is to teach you how to burrito up the baby...so buying a super swaddle blanket kinda makes there lesson moot.

really? i used to live off of piney grove road for years.

 

and as much as i'd love to take you up on that offer, the fact that i am mortified of changing diapers makes it impossible. i can't handle poop smells and i would mother fuging die if i had to wash loads of poo-smeared cloths. it's worth it to me to spend some extra cake on disposable diapers and just drop them in the diaper pail instead of suppressing my gag reflex (or trying to) while scrubbing tread marks. *shudder*

 

Poop is going to transition a good bit over the next 6 months.

 

Tar poop.

 

Green/Yellow seedy poop

 

Brownish/Greenish/Yellowish milk poop.

 

Color of whatever babyfood she ate poop.

 

Then when food it introduced several months from now, Poop with chunks.

 

 

 

You will also get pooped on and/or she will poop in your hand at least once.

I do not miss the poop.

I took care of our oldest from about 3 weeks until about 1 yr everyday while I worked evenings and she worked days. Those were some long ass days, I'm not gonna lie. I learned how to catch 30 minute naps all day.

Don' forget projectile poop.

 

Up the back, or all over as my daughter once did as I raised her up to slide a new diaper under her. Good times, lol.

meh, the smell is minimal until she starts eating solid foods. after that, her backside will become toxic.
I used a nonrebreather mask and a little vicks vapo-rub right below my nose. women, however, have evolved some sort of immunity to airborne venom

A real man sucks it up and changes diapers.
