Baby poo-splosions are not my favorite.
There’s a lot of things that I love about having babies, but those are not one of them. Baby V is particularly impressive at catching me quite off guard, especially when she’s just been dressed, bathed, or both. Imagine her fresh out of the bath, lotioned up nice and clean, pajamas zipped up, floor freshly mopped up with a towel… annnnnnd go. Blerg. (I suppose I should be grateful it wasn’t IN the bath. But still..)
I have a hard enough time dealing with her poo-splosions as it is, let alone trying to imagine doing it without baby wipes in hand (literally). Thank God for whomever created wipes, amirite? Whether disposable or cloth, those wet, cottony squares of awesome sweep the evil away in record time, freshening your baby’s bum with ease. (Or, at least sometimes with ease if you aren’t wrestling her to stay put like I am.)
Shortly after a particularly nasty poo-splosion a couple weeks ago, I happened to catch this hilarious commercial on TV for Cottonelle that rang particularly true for me in this war on butt wiping:
This really wasn’t something I’d thought much about until I was elbow deep in dirty diaper changing and praying to the wet wipe Gods. Why shouldn’t we use wipes, too? I mean, if we can’t clean ourselves in the shower without water, why do we think we can clean our own hindsides without it? This just makes a lot of sense, y’know?
To really drive home the point, Cottonelle created some hilarious hidden camera-type videos in different real life situations to raise awareness for what I’ve called The Great Wet Wipe Debate™. Two of my favorite are “The Car Wash” (as seen below) and “The Salon.”
I die. “One-two for your number two.” Hilarious! I love that comedienne!
