Well to spot a poo in Ben's case

a little while ago it was when he bent his knees up.

Now its when you hear the same noise as a VERY loud fart (I kid you not sometimes I have to ask which one of my male family members did it - and Robert has been known to try and blame Ben!) and other times it is the same sound as when an adult has the runs on the loo :shock: .

Oh and if you are holding him, you can so feel it coming out :shock:

With Ben's bum being so so sore still :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: I systematically change after every feed and then the mid point between the 2 feeds to its every 2 hours.

Jan, tandem pooing might prevent me missing one then!

Annette, sorry Ben's bott is so sore still :cry: I know you are doing everything you can.

I figured without the grim disposable smell I might not be able to detect a poo but it sounds like there might well be similarities in identifying a filled cloth nappy and a filled disposable...

ps Jan, what is a standard nappy check? I feel foolish asking that now :oops: I've only ever used disposables on babies I've looked after.

standard nappy check is what we do on occassion to see if nappy needs changing! it involves a simple peek down the back of the nappy or up the leg hole!

Many a time I've gone to have a peek and ended up with poop on my finger as a result! (usually more for L than the girls though!)

Oh yes, they were served notice last week having been booked for induction on wednesday, but they won a reprieve courtesy of me suggesting I would prefer to wait after the took the stitch out, which the medics seemed to agree wholeheartedly with (they do seem to change their minds alot!). Friday is the day by hook or by crook and they should be well and truely crispy on top by then so no excuses for not coming out!
