The Poop Scoop
It should come as no shock to any of you (OK, the 2 or 3 of you that are actually reading this) that I am obsessed with my kids’ poop. The name of my blog says it all.
If you’re a mom, admit it…you, too, are obsessed with your child’s poop. You do the “poop sniff”* and inspect each diaper with disgust and intrigue.
Early on, the twins never pooped. Not NEVER, but it may as well have been. I worried and worried. We tried prune juice and karo syrup and all the other home remedies the doctors recommend. But still no poop. And THEN the doctor told us it was normal for them not to poop. What?!
It was when we started Sascha and Mia on solid foods that the two shitters found their once-a-day groove. And much to my shock and delight, sometimes they even go TWICE a day.
*Refers to the action of lifting your child up and trying to smell said child inconspicuously to see if he/she is the cause of the horrid smell.
