My joy for today is my sweet boy’s breastfed baby poop.
For my new readers, please do not be scared away. I know some of you might think this is gross, and you would have a valid point, but breastfed baby poop really does have a different, sweeter smell than when a child starts to eat solid food. I have also heard from friends that it is quite different than formula-fed baby poop. None of my kids have been on formula, so I do not have firsthand knowledge on that. Breastfed baby poop is also so easy to clean-up; usually no more than one wipie.
My third-born is just starting to eat rice cereal, so soon we will be presented with more pungent smelling diaper changes from him. I nursed my other two kids until 17 and 15 months, and for that entire time, the poop smells much better than two year old toddler poop. But the first time you add in that solid food at six months, the smell changes distinctly. If you would like to experience this for yourself, feel free to volunteer to change Tucker in the near future. In these last few days of exclusively-breasfed baby poop, my nose will delight.
