Davis is a pooper. I guess he’s like most babies…they poop. Davis is on a schedule. He poops early in the morning. I now know that when he wakes up, I better go in and check on him because he has probably pooped. Pooping isn’t a problem. I have gotten used to changing he increasingly worse smelling diapers. The problem is that the past few mornings, when I go in to check on him, he is laying in his crib holding up a poop-covered hand saying, “Yuck, yuck, yuck!”
After spending a few nights away sleeping in the same room with him, I realize how this happens. I observed that when Davis wakes up he begins scratching. He starts with scratching his lower back and inevitably ends up scratching down into his diaper. Recently, that lower body scratching has led to a poop-covered hand and Davis’s repetition of the word yuck.
Hopefully, eventually, he will learn that the scratching should stop where the diaper begins.
