Poo Free Summer: Sharing Poo Stories, Win 5 tubs of Wipes!!! *contest closed*

Our Poo Free summer is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean we won’t continue to live “Poo Free”! When we told other people we were challenged by Huggies to live Poo Free this summer, they asked what that meant. Obviously everybody poops, so it’s not something that can be stopped completely, but there are ways you can stay as poo free as possible. We lived poo free this summer by using Huggies wipes! They are the thickest wipes out there (vs. national brands) to help keep the poo where it belongs, on the wipe, and off of your baby and you! With Elijah starting to potty train we can also be more Poo Free by teaching him to wipe with Huggies Wipes, helping him to be cleaner on his own.

Luckily we managed to make it through the summer without any big poo explosions but Elijah tends to stay pretty regular. I remember when Elijah was born, one of our first conversations about his poo habits just seemed so natural. His godmother laughed that she never thought we would be having a conversation like that. It is true, before you are a parent you wouldn’t dream of discussing bathroom habits, then your first child is born and it seems like that is the most important topic. Did he go? How often is he going? How much? What color was it? Ah, the joys of parenthood.

We praised Elijah at each stage of poo progression and we both thought it was so cute when he pooped ‘a real poop’ the first time. To normal people this may seem odd, but to us as parents it made us proud. It meant he was eating right, was digesting right, and was basically working right all around. How could you not be proud?

Changing poo diapers really has become second nature to me, even in the toughest circumstances. A few weeks ago we were shopping when Elijah decided to go. It was a rather large and smelly one so we couldn’t exactly wait until we were done shopping. Then their changing station was so gross I couldn’t even think about using it. So I did what any mother would do, took him out to the car, laid down a blanket in the trunk and changed him, in the trunk, in the parking lot of the grocery store. It’s times like that, that remind me why it’s always a good idea to keep a bag with 2 or 3 small blankets, 2 or 3 diapers, a box of wipes, and a bottle of antibacterial hand gel in the car at all times. Elijah and I both were able to stay poo free, even minus the proper facilities!
