I was feeling bold and different this afternoon, and M was in an unusually cooperative mood. So I tried a bikini twist on her in one of my pretty Loveybums cotton velour prefolds. Nice! Cute! She seems comfy! Then she wanted to go to the park across the street, so I threw her wool skirty on. Adorable! My favorite! We are having fun at the park when I notice her poop signs. She does not want to stop playing so I figure maybe it is just gas. Awhile later she bends over and I see chunky/runny poop all up her butt crack almost out the top of the diaper! Nooooooooo!!!!
Boy what a cleanup. The velour prefold in a bikini twist? Poop *everywhere*. Including the wool. Smashed into the velour. Got poop on the bathroom floor during the cleanup too. So I cleaned baby butt - prefold - wool - bathroom floor - my bare feet - my hands - the sink. What a mess. What the hell was I thinking? She is now in an Econobum cover with padfolded flat... no more messing around
I just think it's funny how I went from being in love with my fancy prefold/wool combo to "nope" in the space of about 5 seconds. Honestly out of my whole stash, it was the worst possible choice for a big yucky poop!!!
lol Are prefolds always the worst choice for a poop or is it just when they get bigger or is the fold that makes it bad? I'm trying to learn what to watch out for lol
It's pretty funny though that they either know or it's Murphy's Law...Kind of like when they pee/poop while they are being changed...hmmm
The fold made it a really bad choice. Prefolds aren't as smooth a surface to spray or wipe or scrape off, but they are nice and flat shaped which helps. But the bikini twist makes it almost impossible to get it over the toilet without poop falling out, I have just learned the hard way. Also it is worse at containment than a normal angel wing or jellyroll fold, which are fantastic at keeping runny poo in. I would not have had such a mess if I had used one of those folds.
Another common thing is babies to immediately poop in a brand new nice diaper you just put on them for the first time and wanted to admire them in for awhile. Or immediately have a stinky poop just after you threw in a load of laundry. I think there's some confirmation bias involved here but regardless, these are common complaints lol.
