  • From The Stuff New Moms Should Know File

    If I could give one piece of advice to new moms, it would be this: Never change a poopy diaper while wearing bell sleeves. Not. Good.

    You won’t find that in a book anywhere.

      Ha! I am sure that is excellent advice.

      Good one! Excellent one! Especially for all us aging hippies out there. Too bad it comes just a tad too late for me, but I’ll be sure to pass it on.

      Also: if you have very long hair, tie it back before nasty diaper changes.
      Yes, I’m talking from personal advice.
      Remember those first few weeks when the baby just pees (and poos) everywhere whenever her diaper is changed? Good times, good times.

      Should I reveal that I “snorted” when I read this?

      Oh! And, love your tattoo picture over at DYM.

      Hee hee, good tip. In some cases, no sleeves is even better.

      Also, remember to wait until you’re sure your baby has pooped BEFORE putting him in the tub.
