Ever Changed A Diaper?

Fri Jun 30, 2006 8:10 am

Have you?  Wink

Some of the weird threads going on at the moment gave me a flashback to my internships in hospitals, and that in turn made me ask this silly question.

I have - loads of them, messy, not-so-messy and disgusting ones.

Many times....That is what happens when you are 18 years older than your siblings...

I said i would never change a diaper....I learned very fast that changing a diaper and geting it over fast is MUCH better than suffering quietly with the smell eminating from the bottom...

Yes.

Friends kids, not mine.

And, when I was working as a camp counselor, on one of our disabled kids. Lactose intolerant. After he had had milk.

After that lovely experience, anything my future kids will throw at me (hopefully not literally) seems like a walk in the park.

I have a 3 year old and a 6 month old, so yeah I've changed a few diapers.

It's really not too bad once you get used to it.

With 3 kids I estimated that I changed about 3-4 diapers per night for approx 1 year each. Thats a few alright, but I am glad that I will never have to do that again.

I gave the nickname Miss Turd to my daughter when she was about 6 months old. I know, not a very pretty nick name . . .

There is a tale however . . .

As I have just changed her wet diaper, and I've properly powdered her bum and I'm slipping a fresh diaper under her she shat . . . and this was a Boone and Crocket load I'm tellin' you . . . baby shit green . . . right up my right arm . . . all over the bassinette . . . sheets . . . blanket . . . and she was giggling the whole time . . .

The name kinda stuck for a little while.

One day, she was about 4, maybe a bit older, and I called for her . . ."C'mere Miss Turd". She quite matter of factly walked up in front of me, put her little hands on her little hips, gave me the appropriate degree of 'stink eye' and proclaimed, "I'm not a turd, I'm a girl".

Miranda =  irked 

Dad =  Wow!

That was the end of that nickname.  laughing

Add to that all the colostomy bags, nasogastric tubes and other drainages that you will still have to change when you progress further in medicine... then it starts to be disgusting.

Thank God I only have to deal with children's diapers... When you see what the nurses have go through to change adult's diapers you grow a whole new respect for them...right ABfemme?

Yep, plenty. Still do for our daughter when my wife's had her fill for the day. We're trying to get our daughter to indicate when she needs to go rather than have the aroma follow her around... she can say "I poo" after the fact, sometimes...

I have trouble changing those. It usually takes a couple of hours to psych myself up. When I finally do it, half of the time I either get gaggy and have to step out for a minute. I never thought anything could smell so bad!

Well if it smelled just a little more like that and less like what it is it wouldn't be that bad...  Silly

Anyway, what I found most interesting was the stool one of the patients had that was nourished via a PEG ("stomach tube") - just some replaced epithelium. It didn't even smell much at all.

Had a similar experience with my daughter. We were at a post-lamaze class gathering with all the new arrivals. As we got up to leave, my sweet daughter threw up and let loose with a torrent at the other end, leaving me with vomit and shit dripping down the front of my shirt. And of course she looked up at me and smiled.....
