Bubs was born loving the changing table. To the point that on those occasions as a newborn when he would launch into one of his inconsolable, inexplicable crying fits, I would change his diaper, we're talking a brand new, unsoiled diaper, just to calm him down. Worked every time. Well, that all changed at around 6 months when all of a sudden, every time I tried to change that kid's diaper, it would turn into a WrestleMania match, with me suffering way more SmackDowns than him.
I mentioned all this as an aside to his pediatrician a couple of months ago, and she said, "Yeah, that's why a lot of Moms turn to pull-ups early." What?! Never ever would have occurred to me. Pull-ups are for your 2-year-old potty-training types, right? I mean, I think the smallest size they come in is 2T-3T. But I was desperate. So I ordered some pull-ups for baby Bubs. Genius! Sure, there's a little extra room in the tushy, but not too much. The fact that I can easily change him, even while he's practicing his hits and pinfalls, is all that matters. Thought I would share in case any of you were dealing with a little Hulk Hogan (or Hoganette) and, like me, never would have thought outside of the diaper. Pure genius.
