Having an infant is a wonderful experience. To quote Ferris Bueller, “If you have means, I highly recommend picking one up.” However I should warn that it’s not all cute/viral video worthy moments! Babies have a way of creating some serious “Ick” moments. Below, I list the Top 5 “Ick” moments  of having an infant.

#4 Yellow Fountain

Babies go through SO MANY diapers. And with the number of diaper changes that you as a new parent go through in a day, this is bound to happen. Child wets diaper. Doting parent places child on the changing table and takes off wet diaper. In the 10 seconds between taking the old diaper off and putting the new one under the tiny  butt of the baby, a yellow fountain blesses the changing table.

I have a daughter, so the fountain is more of a tickle that dribbles out nearly unnoticed. That is until you notice that her onesie is now SOAKED. From friends with boys, this moment can turn into a game of “duck and cover.”


#3 Black Sock Down

I take my daughter’s socks off every time I change a #2 diaper now. This is because she likes to swing her feet around and occasionally she makes contact with the brown matter contents of said soiled diaper. I know it’s counter intuitive, bare skin touching it is more gross than a sock right? Well, no, you can just grab one of the wipes from the container and deal with it on the foot. But on the sock it gets INTO the material. Now you have a poo soiled sock that you have to remove from a quickly moving baby foot.


#2 Food everywhere. Except the mouth.

Ick Awards 2014

#1 Poop-splosion

Do you have a kid? Then you know what I am talking about. She hasn’t gone #2 for let’s say a day or two. Then suddenly a tidal fury of ick floods even the diaper. Even the most technologically advanced and absorbent diapers are useless against this mess. It’s moments like these where you must SOUND THE ALARM and call all available hands on deck.
