As part of Leo’s initial healthcare, our midwife asked us to keep a log of his -ahem- void and stool to ensure that he’s getting enough to eat. The resulting chart has shown that indeed, our little boy has inherited his parents’ healthy appetite. It also provides an interesting insight into our lives lately:
|June 22nd||PM||6:30||Poo (brown/yellow)|
|June 23rd||AM||1:45||Poo (yellow)|
|5:45||Pee on me|
|12:10||Pee on self|
|1:20||Poo and pee|
|7:55||Poo and pee|
|PM||1:30||Poo and pee|
|1:40||Pee in own face|
|8:30||Poo and pee|
|June 25th||AM||1:30||Poo, pee|
|10:31||Pee on self|
|6:00||Poo, poo, poo|
|June 26th||AM||1:30||Poo, pee|
|4:31||Pee on self|
Although I’ve been doing most of the diaper changing so that Claire can recover more quickly by staying in bed, she’s the one who has to supply the raw materials for Leo’s little production process. Figure on roughly one feeding per diaper change event.
We are using a diaper service, so the cotton, thank God, is washed by someone else. But our washing machine’s been working overtime on the nylon outer diaper shells that have had to contend with a leak, and the little onesies that were innocent bystanders during a “pee on self” event.
Note, as well, the disproportionate clustering of event occurrences in the wee hours of the morning.
