Oh no he did'n'

The reason that Jake's crib looked like THIS yesterday morning ...


... is that he woke us up screaming, because he'd taken his diaper off at some point during the night and had been rolling around in poop and pee for who-knows-how-long before he fully woke up.

And I don't know what was going on in there before he started crying, but I suspect that he wasn't initially that BOTHERED by the excrement in his crib. I say that because when we went in there, he had it on his forehead, his nose, and of course all up and down his arms and legs. IT WAS ALSO UNDER HIS FINGERNAILS, which to me is indicative of some PLAYING WITH THE POOP.

I threw him in the bathtub and gave him a good scrubbing while Grayson put the bed linens in the washer, the pacis in the dishwasher, and disinfected the crib and changing table. (I have saved you from all but the CSI-approved picture of the clean crib. I didn't want you to lose your breakfast as a result of seeing more.)

I remember when Nick did that when he was a baby, and I wanted to duct tape his diaper to him every night TO PREVENT IT FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN, EVER, IN THE HISTORY OF OUR FAMILY, AMEN. I have the same feeling now.

Try putting his diaper on backwards. Works for us!

I had that problem with my little girl (17 months). Her brother, 6, came screaming that something was terribly wrong with Sister. He is my little germophobe - so he was completely grossed out by the state of the playpen and his sister's arms and legs.

I never thought of diapering backward, but that's a good idea. For now, we're trying putting PJs with shorts on him instead of just letting him sleep in a T-shirt and diaper. But if he starts pulling the shorts off to get to his diaper, we'll try the backward thing!

We had to use one-piece bodysuits to keep our naptime streaker under wraps!

Ours have done this at different times. It's not fun. at. all.
