The birth of a newborn brings overwhelming emotions and love. What you don’t expect as a new mom is how often you’ll think about or discuss your baby’s diaper output. My husband and I still text each other daily about our baby’s poop and he’s four months old!
A new mom will change their baby’s diaper anywhere from 10-12 times a day, so of course, at some point you’ll ask yourself, ‘is the baby’s poop really supposed to be green? Should he/she be pooping this much?’ The answers are yes, and yes.
By the time I had my third child I was pretty familiar with changing diapers, but I somehow still forgot what was considered normal when it came to how it’s supposed to look.
You can blame my forgetfulness on mommy brain, but it sure is helpful that Pampers will now be handing out stool color cards and diaper rash information to hospitals nationwide so moms are armed with information they’ll need to get through those first few months of motherhood.
As I’m sure you probably know, it’s super important to change your baby’s diaper because urine and stool can irritate their sweet, soft skin.
Diaper rash is actually the most common skin problem among infants and young children. In the new Pampers handout about diaper rash information, there’s some great stats that will help put your worries at ease.
- More than half of babies between four and 15 months of age develop diaper rash at least once in a two-month period.
- Nearly all babies will develop at least one diaper rash before they are potty trained.
These stats are the reason Pampers wants to help new moms be confident as they care for their new baby at home.
