Compare to Sister’s Blog Month 3: Traveling and Night Pottying
4/27 Day 64 F: I got three consecutive hours last night! And what is even better is that when I woke up that first time when the baby roused, he was dry! My brain was a little woozy from all that sleep but I managed to get him up over a container to have a very impressive wee. Had we not done that he would have soaked through and if I hadn’t been fast enough he could have peed clear into the next house. We went right back to sleep. He was still nursing when I drifted off and the I woke up two hours later and he was wet and fussing and when I opened the flat with one hand to assess the situation while still lying down and nursing, the spigot was straight up. Yikes! I didn’t think I had enough time to maneuver so I pulled the flat out a bit more and aimed his penis down and cued him to go so I could catch it that way. He obliged with two consecutive wees and the flat was very soaked, but held it all. I put on a fresh flat (origami folded snappi, no cover) and we went back to sleep. I secured it because he wiggles and I figured I’d be too sleepy to wake in time. I was right, I didn’t catch the next several in bed eliminations, but we had fifty fifty success the rest of the day and I caught the only poop that appeared. I didn’t dare put him in the poop chair today with the poop being unpredictable!
I wore him on my back today too. It still takes me a while to get him just right but I’m getting better. I managed to make blueberry muffins this morning (Itty Bitty was pleased) and rice and beans for dinner and do a little laundry. The first time he wet while in the sling because I had him in it too long and he roused from sleep. And the second time I removed him because my “Potty Sense” was tingling. Unfortunately, after I got him off my back I paused to ask Daddy Man something because he looked odd (turns out he’d hurt himself while bending down…lung in rib situation) instead of doing what I had been planning to do. Subsequently I missed a gigantic wee. Dagnabbit! Mini Moose has a bigger bladder now and can hold more so it can be impressive if he hasn’t gone in a while. I am counting it as a half catch, because I would have got it if I hadn’t gotten distracted.
Oh, and our bed set up is not pristine like that, of course. That picture was taken before Itty Bitty was born just after setting it up. I may show you what it currently looks like some other time. Maybe…
