In case anyone has forgotten that this is a "mommy blog," I will do you a favor and shock you back into reality. My son's poop has achieved new levels of stinkiness and frequency. I don't know what has happened! For several months he has been a once, maybe twice-a-day pooper. If you have a tiny infant, you're wondering how that is possible. And I could predict with 90% accuracy when it was going to happen. But, help me Lord, it seems like every time I pick up Jackson I smell the stink. Yesterday he had to have two baths because he was so smelly. And after he went to bed I could smell, but not find, the poo on my person. Don't worry, I know how glamorous my life is. My mom said she experienced the same phenomenon last night, well after we were gone. There are a few factors that might be coming into play here: the cold, the cold medicine, and the fact that my dad was feeding him fig newtons last weekend. Are figs so powerful that they could turbo-charge his BMs for days?
