I decided to share my first mom fail ever with you! It was with my first born daughter, Autumn. I was 18 and stupid! (Well, not stupid but should have known better.)
My goal with Autumn was to be a perfect mother. (Haha, yeah right!) She was very premature, so I was the mom who would change her diaper as soon as she did her business, change her clothes as soon as she spit up, and a hand sanitizer freak.
So about a day or two after I brought her home is when the accident happened. Now let me say she was a very small baby. When she was dismissed from the hospital she was 6 lbs 9 oz. and 23 inches long.
Anyways, she decided she needed to poop. So being the good mom I changed her. Now I know why my grandma said to wait 10-15 after they poop to change them. As soon as I got her changed and dressed up all pretty, she exploded everywhere. (yes, I use to be the kind of mom who would buy a special outfit for each holiday and made sure my kid looked perfect. If you still do that’s fine. I just don’t really see the point in an outfit they will only wear once.)
It literally flooded out of her diaper, all over her clothes, on the carpet, and up her back. I wanted to puke.
To this day I still don’t know where babies put it at. How they can eat so little and explode everywhere? Needless to say after that I started listening to my grandma.
